I cant believe its been 3 years since I was last on here.... my sincere apologies. As I mentioned in the first posting, I have a running build thread over at HAMB but recent changes to my truck evidently are not acceptable to them.

I made the decision to put EFI on the truck as I don't drive it much and I want the reliability of EFI. This also prompted me to change the fuel tank and fix a few other issues. After building the truck, I had an issue with the truck being lower in the front on the drivers side, I fought this for a long time and finally figured out that the spring on that side was the issue.

I am going to be installing a Fitech Go Street system, got to get the new tank in. I am using a Tanks Inc. product as I am using another one from them in my 70 Challenger. It definitely isn't a "bolt in" for a 52, but not too difficult. Here are some pictures

Sorry for the sideways pics, getting reacquainted with posting here.

Hi all, been a little while since I posted and I figured I would provide an update. I got the EFI installed without much problem. For those who are thinking of replacing their gas tank with the one from Tanks Inc. I will say that it isn't super easy to adapt; not super difficult either but takes some work. I chose to position the tank so that the inlet of the tank where it comes through the floor was in the stock location. This required me to make alterations to the brackets under the truck to hold it. The rear mount had to be extended about 3 1/2" forward. I did have to make a spacer for the front bracket to drop the tank about 3/4" because the stock tank is raised in the front half. As for the new fuel system, only 4 wires required to be hooked up and it fired right up, idled immediately, was/is responsive; I am very happy with it.

While I am at this renovation, I decided to fix the heater and the wipers which were still the original 6V systems and neither worked. I ended up having to purchase a new blower motor which I got from Summit, its a generic motor that is said to be capable of working in this vehicle, I haven't received it yet so we will see. I also had to purchase a new wiper motor/system. I have 2 original motors but neither works and I thought about getting them rebuilt and running a 6V step down transformer but decided to go new 12V.

The blower motor works well, had to trim off all of the bolts as well as a part of the shaft, but it bolted right up. Waiting on the heater switch.
