Thank you everyone, I am loving this van the more I get under the hood on her. After playing around with the aftermarket radiator, I just wasn't happy with it. I took the stock one to a shop for a recore. It's a bit pricey, but it is the OEM part and as of now, she isn't a hot rod. I should have that back by the end of this week in time to take it down on Saturday. I have the Edelbrock 289 Performer intake on my Mustang and I really like the performance for a little V8. I am working on removing a lot of the old vacuum lines and filters from the late 60's that serve no purpose anymore. With any luck, she should be somewhat roadworthy by New Years. I just hate storing it almost 2 hours away because that means I can only work on her once a week.

I finally buttoned up the front today. New water pump, alternator, and belt. I’m waiting on my Edelbrock intake and carb before I take the top apart. I also just received my HEI distributor with plugs.
The plugs and wires should be here today. I’ve also started going through some of the crap wiring, it was easy because most of it isn’t even crimped. It’s just all twisted wires around live connections.
I fully hope to have the van running and tuned by the first of the year so I can start assembling the front end again before moving onto suspension.
I’m also annoyed with the Patriot pipes I purchased. I’ve been trying to install them and I’ve stripped two slag screws and have had four holes so far be too large despite drilling the guide holes smaller as required. I’m just going to get a muffler shop to weld some brackets at this point and be done with it.
