I'm gonna have to fire my Motor mount Guy..............
Passenger side Header hits the frame, and there is only about an 1/8 inch clearance between the crossmember and the oil pan.

Well I guess I will take care of the clearance issues tomorrow.
Heres some new pics:

Working out a deal with Pokerob for his 37x12.5x15 TSL SSR's

Its a little bigger tire then I intended so we will have to see how the TTB holds up.

I know the previous owner of that motor........TTB will not hold up if you drive it like he did.

its on, kind of.
had to drill out the pulley for the water pump, I have to notch the alternator bracket, and I have to drill out a couple mount holes in the head to allow for the bigger bolt.
It looks good though, seems to line up decent. I will get the alternator and steering pump hooked up tomorrow........and paint the pulleys.

Stop by if you get a chance, I have your money.

Pictures will have to wait until I get the cab on.

Moved the Cab into the barn tonight, trying to get it ready to set on the frame.

Had to modify my Cherry picker, but now I have a Porta-boom.
