    I got back to sheet metal work today and here's what I got done with the toe boards and the lower cowl corner was replaced.








    I also now have my 700r4 tranny rebuilt and ready for paint.

    I'm envious. I think I may be pulling the current frankenstien mess out and building a new one too!

    More pic's of welded in panels, can't stand the open edges on the bottom so I welded them. Just a bit more and I'll sand blast the bottom and Paint it with bed liner stuff.

    More rust repair, weld grind weld grind.

    Here's a few pic's of the exhaust and steering issues. It seems that I'll have to come off the exhaust header with a bend right away to give clearance for the steering shaft. How sharp of a bend can the exhaust pipe have ? I'm thinking I need a 45 degree bend with in an inch of the flange to get the clearance I'll need.
    How Many steering knuckles can be used in the steering shaft assy. ??
    In puts welcome.

    Your 45 degree bend is not a problem. If you're making them up yourself a mandrel bent "U" or "J" on a nominal 6" radius will give you the bend you need, just cut the portion of the mandrel bend that you need and weld it into place.
    On the steering u-joint question, you can have as many as you need, but you'll need to add rigid intermediate supports when you go more than two. A universal at the column end and a second one at the steering box with a solid shaft between is stable and common. If you need a third universal in between then you have to add a fixed support on one side of that third joint.

    rspears: Thanks for the feed back. I have 2 Heim joints to support the steering if needed. So many things are having to be worked out at once just to move forward a little bit. I'm also wanting to get the motor fired up for the 1st time, been sitting in my shop for 2 months all wrapped up in a blanket just waiting.
    Any in put for Mufflers ? Looking a FlowMaster but that's taxing my budget. Thanks again for the in put.

    Sometimes you can luck out and find decent exhaust/mufflers, etc on craigslist. I think this is in your area: 2 New Flowmaster Mufflers
