Default rear end

So I pulled the rearend so that I can replace the leaky pinion seal, plus I realized that it doesn't have a vent. I have a question and I tried searching online but didn't find an answer. Can any of you gents tell me if the vent has to be on the axle housing or can I tap it into the back of the pumpkin toward the top? I played with the idea of using the filler hole but I think that the location may be too low. I found a art morrison filter over flow that I would mount into the trunk with a hose going to the vent on the diff.

It can be either or, the axle tubes are not internally sealed at the pumpkin end, so its wide open.

Ok, thanks for the input on the rearend, I am just going to plan to put it up high on the pumpkin not much space on the axles with all the four link brackets. Thanks again.

Looks great.Did you make up the brake pedal assembly?
I was thinking about taking my brake booster out as well.
Thanks Steve

I bought the pedal assembly as a kit from Speedway Motors out by my house. it came with the 2 master cylinders your choice of size and the pedal assembly. I also bought a remote adjuster cable so I can change the ratio of front and back brake pressure without getting up under the dash. The master cylinder and pedal assembly cost about 160.00. The cable was like 40.00 bucks. I still need to get the fittings and tubing.

Yes that's the company and that's the brake kit.

Shock towers: Hey I'm glad you put that article together, it gave me some confidence to attempt it myself. Thanks!

Pretty excited, I spoke with Mr Evans the other day and he is putting cam specs together for me and will call me back, so I can order it from him.

first BBF build, first time getting a custom grind. To tell you the truth I just wanted to say "Hey Lem whatever you see fit, heres my card grind away" LOL As a matter a fact I got so excited that I forgot to ask what the lift was and hung up the phone. Then I just sent him the spec request through 429-460. I'm really happy with what he spec'd out and can't wait to get the project done.

Had to go play with the dyno and drag software just for sh#ts and giggles. I know it's probably not all that accurate but, it's a lot more fun why you have the actual cam specs to play with. Now back to working on this rearend.

Got the cam a couple of days ago just waiting on the bronze cam plate, got the rear end back in after changing the pinion seal, installing a drain plug, a vent tube, and fill plug and painted.

Default electrical, brakes and engine

Ended up pulling out all the old factory wiring and installed a new harness and fuse panel. I got the back half of the car wired up. I'm waiting to get the front end back on to finish the front. The plan is to finish the brakes first then put the front end back on to finish the wiring.
Got all the brake line and fittings now, installed the pedal assembly and master cylinders. Started running the new lines with the line lock.
Picked up the engine today and painted it up. The project is going slow but it's still moving so its all good.
