Moving along.........Got the heater hoses installed and on to the part that is a real pain in the rear.....piecing together radiator hoses.........So.....I made some adaptors today matching the different upper hose sizes and then went to the auto parts store trying to visualize cutting sections out of hoses to get then to suit my application.......ended up being simpler than I expected.....I ordered a bunch of heat shrink hose clamps that will be here Monday so I can get them finished....Supercharger intercooler hoses are next........Getting closer......the adaptors are Aluminum Glass Beaded

On to the last major piece of the puzzle......Fuel System.......The Nomad has a major difference from the standard 55-57 Chevrolets........The Gas Tank........Because of the spare tire well in the Nomad.....the standard Gas Tank couldn't be used......so...GM used the space available and pretty much form fit a tank to fit........the easy option would have been to cut out the well and use a stock tank........I couldn't take the easy way out....LOL.......So......With the Nomad tank being much deeper than a stock tank, and using a stock GM LSA Fuel Pump.........some major issues popped up.......In my other conversions I had to shorten the overall length of the pumps to fit.......on this application I have to go the other way and lengthen the Pump and modify the tank to accept the new pump.........Stay Tuned......LOL

Man do I know what you mean....LOL

Looking great Ken......waiting to see what magic you work on the pump. The 37 tank was pretty trick...I'm sure this one will be as well.....
