Coming along. Put a few more parts on and @Clank123 (Dave) knocked out the pluming and electrical. Decided to go with OG hoses and fittings.

those brass push lock fittings and hose look really nice..ol skool kuul. That hose is nearly impossible to remove once pushed on. You doing a great job with that resto.....question...what brand of plug wire holders are those? Those look really nice too. You going to be able to fire it for christmas or NYD?

Thanks! Credit goes to Dave Sammons (@Clank123) on the rigging and all the old school ideas! Spark plug loom is R&M Specialties, got it from Summit! Hopefully fire up at end on the year, or early in 2021!

Well, she's all put together! Had a setback, where, when left unsupervised, the bolts I put into the PTO were .150 too long, engine would not turn over, so I took them out, cut them down a bit, and she spins freeley. Unfortunately ran out of time to water test. That will be next time out!!

First a couple of kooool things @Clank123 (Dave) made. In and out knob under the seat, electrical switches (Magneto and starter) on front of drink holder, guage holder, and bitchen front motor mounts!!
