Default Will the Slant 6 fit ?

Much appreciate your thoughts about the engine fit Skull. Gonna dig out my trusty tape measure Saturday and measure. I would like that engine snug against the firewall. As for photos, got lots. Been a fan of these trucks for over 40 years. Check out the odd 1970's interior.

Default Floor

Cleaned the cab of debris. Will do a power wash to sanitize the floor. Got the rear cab bolts out. Found the front bolts under replacement floor panels. Cut a hole in the floor and there they are.

Default Got the front off

The cab is next. I plan to lift it from the structure above. I will beef things up a bit first. Don't need to damage my building

Lightbulb thought

AND if you are planning to lower the front down double check the wheel arch/wheel well center of axle/spindle placement.

when mine was done l missed this step, as l was much younger and did not figure everything in, my tires sit just a little further foreward than l wanted.

Default Drivers door, bottom

This is gonna take some work. The residents are gone. I will give it a try. I'm learning thin metal work, but what have I got to lose.

Default Wheel well center

This is an ambitious project for me. My past experience has been engine swaps, stuff like that., never a chassis swap. Much appreciate your suggestions Skull.
