Well I got a chance to play with my motor a little bit last night. Without knowing it my motor had broken one of the 2 bolts that hold the cam thrust plate on and busted one of the ears off the plate. It wasn't a surprise to me luckily because I had opened up the motor last year and found the issue.
I couldn't get the bolt extracted so I just had to drill out the bolt and tapped the whole for a bigger bolt. instead of the 1/4 20 thread it is now a 5/16 18 thread (at least I think it was a 18). Either way it went down smoothly and now I can button up the bottom half of my motor finally once I get the gaskets.

Looks like you are on your way. Where is your swaybar? Did you ever figure out what you were doing for the five lug conversion? Lots of work left.

That huge thing is sitting under the motor in one of the pics. I removed it awhile back. I am going to probably stick with the SN stuff from the junk yard to help make the steering better. I'm still keeping your offer on the table just in case I can't find what I need. I haven't made a trip to the junk yard yet due to the weather.

Lol more like poor me, I don't sleep very much since I am on leave. I stay up late to work on the car and get up with the kids in the morning. But since I work on it more at night than anytime its hard to do the work that needs to be done, the frame. I try not to be too loud with the my oldest girl and my garage share a wall. I will try to get to some more of the welds down the fender aprons tonight though.

Thanks to everyone reading and giving support!

Oh yea.........
GO COLTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well it is 2:30 in the morning and I am about to go to bed. I got a few things started/accomplished tonight.

Bolted down the timing chain for the last time.
Armor All'd my steering wheel and E-brake handle.
Cleaned out the interior a little.
Started running the main body harness.
Cleaned up the firewall some.
Removed the cruise control stuff, the throttle cable, and vacuum solenoid junk.
Marked where I am going to cut my frame apart and what welds need to be removed.

Next on my list:
Degrease the motor and prep for painting
Remove carpet for the wife to attack it with the carpet cleaner.
Get under the car and degrease the body by hand.
Remove gas tank to remove old gas and fuel pump to run line for carb.

In the tank I am going to do like I did my 83 and just replace the pump with a rubber hose of the same length. At the motor end I am just going to use the stock metal lines but I am going to cut off the ends of them and flare them out. Then just shove a rubber hose on it and run those to the pump. I am using a fuel pump with a return on it so I will be using both lines.

Make sure you get the 94-95 spindles. The 96+ not only have the wider wheel base from the ABS hardware... but they have a different steering arm.

The steering arm causes massive bump steer when using with a stock fox steering rig. Gotta move the rack if you want to use the 96+ spindles without having issue.

94-95 is gravy though.

Colts fail.
