Looks good Matt!! Two things, your upper radiator hose is on backwards and your ground battery cable should go to the thermostat where the alternator bracket bolts too. All it needs next, is a complete smog system and you will be done. Nice job...

Thanks, all! Good point, Mark, on the upper radiator hose. I must admit I didn't notice that!


On the ground cable, I've got a battery with the positive terminal inboard and so away from the fender, which I like from a safety perspective, but it means I need to source a factory-looking but longer ground cable to reach that factory ground point on the thermostat.

Matt,
If you run your Neg. cable in front of your washer jug instead of the backside, it looks long enough to reach the thermostat housing stud. Give it a try!!

Doesn’t quite reach, but it turns out that Lectric Limited carries extra-long negative cables for just such an occasion so order placed

Today I finally installed an NOS temp sender that I’ve had on a shelf for a while, correct for the console gauges, and crimped a ring terminal onto the existing wire to replace the clip-on connector from the old stud-style sender. Swapped the upper radiator hose around while I had the water out - slowly knocking down projects. Gotta clean those plug heat shields!
