I've been installing the vintage air system, I thought buying the individual ends and getting the hose local was a better option because I needed more fittings then came in the kit but now I know better. Local supply charged me 140 dollars for just the hose, I got another 300 in fittings. My suggestion, buy a kit then add additional fittings. I bought a manual crimper tool and it's easy to operate and crimps look good.

Who made your driveshaft? I need one for my 64 Wagon project. It is a 5.7 with a Nag-1 too.

my local driveshaft shop, clutch products in Mobile, Al. I did supply the flange. They put the slip yoke in the rear, I don't know why I was expecting it to be fwd but they said that's where they normally put the slip yoke on this type driveshaft. Should work just fine. I would imagine most any driveshaft shop can make one for you. Let me know if you need the flange part number, I'll dig it up.

Great builds so far! I haven't gone the modern Hemi route yet, but did my first EFI using a 1999 5.2L from a truck I had. Lots to learn about making them work. Most people have no idea how hard it is to do hot rods, you have to engineer most things to work.

Thanks Mike! I sure didn't realize what I was getting into but the engineering part of it is something I enjoy. I'd love to see more on your swap.

building hot rods is EASY. it only takes a show or two to build one ! laugh2
it's also a lot harder to "keep it simple" and make it look "right" than people think.
i agree Mike, it is engineering at it's finest, making things fit where they aren't supposed to.
