    Whoa, nice mod, but isn't that new engine way too high to fit in the cab? Judging from the distance between the top of the clutch housing and top of the engine, you will have a mod of the engine tunnel on your hands too? Assume you ofcourse measured all of this before starting

    Crank centerline to the top of the engines are within an inch of each other.

    Wow, neat looking truck! I get down to Canyonville often in the spring and summer. Would like to see it when you get it running.
