Nice compact addition. And clean fresh paint is great to look at. Thumbs up!

You know sh*t is starting to get real when you pick up your brand new badass custom length 1410 series driveshafts!

Now that is some serious one ton stuff!! I just spent the last three evenings studying driveshafts and Universals in 1 ton 101.
Very nice!

I donít know how they could call these 1 1/4 ton trucks with these little driveshafts... The 1410ís make the original seem tiny!

I know right... Those 1310's can only handle so much power. I think the spring packs and rear axle capabilities combined with how much could be loaded into the bed helped get it's 1.25 ton capacity. Going 1410 is sort of a correction. 1350's and 1410's have the same huge bearing caps at 1 3/8 dia,
and huge cross section that gives it the strength. 1410's being wider can offer way more angle forgiveness which is pretty cool. 35-37 degrees verses 20 degrees for a 1350. 1410 yield torque is a stunning 2700 foot pounds. Then you have tube thickness. 0.83, 0.95 and 120 wall. I would imagine M715's hopefully have .120 wall tubes.
Beautiful parts. I hope to get that far soon.

Itís amazing how many little odds and ends are needed to finish all the details. A few stops and another shipment from Summit Racing and she might just be ready to fire next weekend! Then on to the brakes and getting the interior together!

I really need to stop getting side tracked. I was shopping on Summit racing the other day and was looking at cast aluminum valve covers. Iím sick of the seepage from the stamped steel ones on the motor, so I grabbed a cool set of satin black cast aluminum. Well, that lead to this. Another day ďwastedĒ on something I really didnít need to do. It would have been a hell of a lot easier if I had done it before paint and dropping the motor in for good! Oh well, it will be awesome when itís all done!

Default Canadian Project M715... Eh!

I thought it was a good day to work on the old girl today, and thankful that I have the freedom to do so!

Got my clutch linkage fabbed up and installed. Iíve never done a mechanical clutch before, so hopefully this works out, lol.

Also got a flywheel shield fabbed (with integrated clutch return spring mount!) and started on the exhaust. After the exhaust I think the fab work is pretty much over except for seat mounts. Then onto wiring and getting the dash/column in.
