I am finally going to start the build on 36 dodge. Seen as though we can't go anywhere and the shop is closed down. And I have gotten tired of looking for the diamond t truck I wanted. Time to start, I got an 05 workhorse step van with a 3.9ISB. I have been on it for about 2 weeks. Today I was fitting the engine in the frame, it's like putting 10 pounds of potatoes in a 5 pound sack. here is some pictures of the tear down.

Finally I got one side welded but the further up I went the worse the porosity in the welds. I wish I would have just stopped. For the past year my welder seems to be giving me fits when welding light stuff fin on hever stuff. I am looking at welders and don't like what they cost. So this will hold me up until I can get over what they cost.
