I'm waiting to get the block and parts from Toddster. He said he found some ignition parts and sent them with the other parts.

Forgot to mention the Weber carbs came with a ton of extra parts and the seller threw in a copy of the super duty build directions. Ill post more pictures later when I get home from work.

Got some nice used arm rests and another set of floor mats for the Indy today. Still waiting for the lower engine parts and block so I can get started on the engine build.

Ok, what shocks/struts would be the best for this car? I want a stock ride quality for now. Are Monroe sensatrack struts any good?

They arrived the other day. Added them to my pile of parts. I need some time so I can work on this car! I have gaskets for the engine, ball joints, shocks, struts, door arm rests, ignition parts, wheel bearings and brake parts to install. It will be nice to have a good ride when driving it. Right now it bounces all over the place due to worn struts.

Nearing 2 years of ownership. I hope to get time to work on the car still this year. Sounds like I might get the rest of the super duty parts here soon too.

Rear: 265/35 on 18x8.5 (45 offset) Coil-overs w/ 10 inch 300lb springs & 7 inch sleeve

Everything is the previous owners fault!

Cool, I was just wondering about this build.

This year I went from having lots of time and no money, to lots of money and no time. It's not fair!

This year I went from money and no time to no money and no time, lol. Kids are expensive!

I need to find a crankshaft for the Super Duty engine, figure out what to use for an ignition system and find a carb for it. I sold the webers because they would not fit in the stock chassis without some serious modifications. I have 2 of the 2 barrel Holley intake manifolds so thats what I plan on using.

I was surfing RockAuto.com over the weekend and found front calipers for $12 each, hoses for $12 each and a bunch of tune up parts for $1 or less each. So now I have more parts on the way for the car. I need to find a good deal on E-brake cables and rear calipers. My pile of parts is getting bigger.

The spare arm rests you got... did you happen to have any spare screw hole cover plugs. I keep striking out finding ones for the indy. Are you keeping your old arm rests?

I don't have any screw hole plugs, sorry. I'm going to try and get my factory arm rests recovered at some point. Doesn't look like i will get time to work on the car this year. It's getting cold outside. It will have to wait until spring.

I have been unable to find a crankshaft for the super duty engine. I'm considering selling the super duty stuff and going turbo 3800. Thinking I'll just fix up the iron duke for now and consider my options.

Yeah, don't have that kind of cash sitting around right now. Just gonna fix up the duke for now. Maybe I'll find a good used crankshaft sometime. I could trade a cylinder head for it since I have two.

You mentioned that the duke was noisy. I have one too, I am going to change it to adjustable rocker arms by installing 66 Chevy 153 4 cylinder rocker arms and GM LS rocker studs, with those you can eliminate the slop in the pushrods that cause most of the noise. Ventura did this to his and he is the one that told me about it, he said it made the engine much quieter.

Oh, it can be noisy. I have a super duty 4 to build for it so the duke won't be in there forever.
