If I need to lower the drag link, I can always get a dropped pitman arm, I'd rather not have the steering box hanging lower. Need to wait and see when it gets weight on it.

I figured as much, I had a similar experience long ago after doing an axle flip on the front of my 55 pickup to lower it and the drag link was angled up severely. To add to the folly, I test drove it...

I think the engine is not backwards, notice the pushrods are on the right side like a Harley or Indian. Since their trannys are separate from the engine, they probably just mounted it in front, so...

Mounted the steering box today, made an adaptor plate to the frame as the mount bolts on the box need access from behind. Drag link angle is not too bad, with weight on it it should be near level so...

I use what they call steel mix, 75% C02 and 25% Argon. I've even even used it for stainless, though it spatters like crazy. Once you use solid wire and gas in your Mig, you'll never go back to flux...

I use my Miller 252 mig for everything and only use solid wire. The gasless wire sucks, you might as well be arc welding, having to chip off flux, not to mention the mess and lots of toxic fumes. The...
