    Nick, I was referring to the rocker pinch weld flanges setting the width where they meet the new floor. I assume these are made with the correct width floor panel. If it's not correct, how do you...

    Well after discussing this with Steve he asked me to take a closer look at the trunk too. It's a mess. Someone cut it in half and replaced the rear half. They patched the spare tire well by...

    Thanks Nick. I was thinking of something around 40 hours myself, which sounds like it may be close considering the main floor is about 2/3 of the total floor area. However the rockers have a lot...

    How many hours to replace a floor?

    I typically don't do this kind of work for my customers but I agreed to build a new firewall and fix the transmission tunnel that another shop cut out of the HEMI55. They cut it out from the...

    The negative battery cable should go to the engine block or frame. The positive cable should go to the large terminal on the starter solenoid.

    Before you go swapping things I would look to see how things are actually wired up. It's hard to believe that the alternator stud would be connected to ground. Are you sure the battery you got has...

    Oh, I didn't catch that! The wire from the stud on the alternator should go to the POSITIVE side of the battery! The alternator is grounded to the engine. But I don't understand where the current...

    Looks like you could use a new battery tray while you're at it. ;)

    First of all, welcome to the site and congrats on getting a 57 2DHT. :cool:

    I would disconnect the wire from the alternator and see if it still sparks or gets hot when hooked up to the battery. ...

    I don't understand why you would need a check valve after the mechanical pump. Isn't the outlet valve of the pump essentially a check valve? If fuel is draining back, it seems to me that the pump...

    The point is......check and make sure the tank is getting vented. My filler neck has this notch in it. It's not hard to imagine that it could get plugged with a soft cap gasket, dirt buildup, or...

    Do you have a vented cap on your fuel tank? These tanks aren't vented and they need to have a vented cap or you can create a vacuum in the tank from pump suction or temperature changes.

    Thanks Robert, I wish I'd known about that Steele Rubber part earlier. It even has the holes punched and clips installed, which none of the others have. I bought a set of clips but they make you...

    Time is flying by but I have tried to keep going on the Nomad. I decided to wait on the hood seal until the hood is on, then I'll use a ball of clay to see how much room I have for the seal and...

    For reference this is 17s (245/45-17 tires) on the front and 18s (295/35-18 tires) on the rear of my Nomad. The front has a 3" suspension drop and the rear about 2". I personally think that the...
