Here you go Bearhawke, righthand side with plenty clearance, they honestly fit like they were made for our RHD A-bodies. So chuffed.

Hey 383,

This is great work! I like this work and the pace you have done this project! :P (Nie in almal se broekke nie!)

I hope to get my F100 sorted before the end of next year. 8O I also want to do all the work myself!

Well done, just one question is do you order over the internet and how to they deliver it in SA. The postal service is up to crap!

Hope I can get my Ford as pretty!

Leke om the lees!

Gheers Ben

Hi Ben

Ii have not been on AMC in as long time, the Facebook page is much easier to use lately.
I order my parts from Summit Racing in the States, it gets delivered via courier straight to your door. No post office nonesense to worry about.
Good luck with your Pick up, just take your time and try to keep the wife happy.

I have made a lot of progress since last post, got 2 1/4 duel exhaust with x pipe made up and installed, oil cooler for transmission hooked up, cross flow aluminium radiator installed. Holley 4160 rebuilt, now running a Holley fuel pressure regulator from Carter electric fuel pump. Engine starts and runs beautifully!!! not bad for my first ever engine build. No leaks, lots of oil pressure and temp is spot on. Waiting for some gauges, slip yoke etc. Soon as prop shaft is hooked up I can drive it!

Guess what!!! My Cuda lives, been driving it up and down our quiet road that leads to the farm.
It sounds awesome and goooooes. Not bad for a 318LA or for the first engine that I have ever built. Still taking it easy till rings seat, and brakes are super crap at the moment.
Needs alignment as well.

This has been a 2 and a half year build....worth every second.
