Kinda wish I didn't have to Rock front fenders. Wait.... Do you need to have front fenders?
This probably shaves 10 pounds a side up front, and doesn't look horrible.
Hit the 500 mile mark on this long block we picked up from BluePrint Engines last year. Other than a slightly weaping rear main seal we just yanked, she's been purring like a kitten (aside from the belt squeak in this video). As far as Bang For Your Buck low price crate motors go, I don't know that these guys can really be beat. They squeezed a surprising amount of power, reliably, out of a relatively small engine, and at a price that's hard to argue with. Especially for a novice weekend warrior like myself. Also they're warranty is pretty insane.
I'm stoked to be dropping their 408 stroker in #TheWildebeest soon.
Also also, I've had the hydraulics system for the clutch on and off this thing 3 times today, and im basically just right back to where I started thismorning. Sick.

Fixed the engagement on the clutch. Still not stoked on the disengagement though. Got the pedal adjusted super high, so I feel like I'm driving a clown car. But, I can cruise around town in 4th and give it some juice and the clutch stays put. So that's a small victory.
If you ever need someone to bench bleed your hydraulic clutch system, let me know. I've gotten really good at it. In the year this truck has been running, I've put together and bled the hydraulic system for it 4 times. Now isn't that something?
All hail Tap and Die sets.
Threading this pushrod for the master cylinder so I can make it adjustable.
Because.... Who The Fuck KNOWWWS what the correct length is for this application.
