Thanks Jim, its all coming together. The last minute wiring is what is making it look cluttered to me though. If I ever do another build I will definitely wire up the dash first, install it and then put in the cage. Larger split loom would cure some of the clutter under the hood too by eliminating some of the 1/4 & 3/8 looms running in the same direction. I'm learning a lot on this build.

I found some extra parts and I can't remember where they came from. They must have been important because I sand blasted and painted them. I have the exhaust hanger figured out but can anyone help with the others?

The two pieces on the far right are for your stock spare tire swing, not exactly sure where the other two go, maybe intake manifold for the middle one??

Good call, I sold the tire carrier a long time ago so they aren't needed anymore. That other one may be a throttle cable bracket. Gonna run and check it against the intake real quick. Thanks!

Nope, it doesn't line up with the intake. I think it came from the rear frame section somewhere.

Nice been following the build. The ones on the far right look like they might go to the factory spare tire hanger. Don't really know. Great job!

I see that was already mentioned

Excellent, happen to have a picture of how it bolts up? I looked through my pics from the entire thread and don't have a pic with it in place.

Picked this fuel pump up at the jy from the cash for clunkers. It came from a mid 80's f150, same as the E2000 type. After sticking the 5.0 in and with single exhaust I had it mounted on the p-side frame. Now with duel exhaust I found the brace above the rear axle worked out. It has no problem sucking the gas out of the tank sitting so high. Just a piece of 1/8", drilled for holes, tacked nuts on the reverse side, tacked to the cross member, bit of blue locktite, plumb it in and away you go. Finished the wiring to the pump tonight, the rest this weekend.

VACJ7 has good one. post 2

Then you will need the rubber isolater and holder (Got mine from Rockauto) and a "Z" bracket to hang the pipe hanger on to.

Ok, I installed the exhaust hangers and then made a trip to the local hose shop for fuel line. I debated between steel and rubber lines and ultimately chose the rubber lines. The guy at the shop said either way I go there will be a small section of rubber line somewhere in the plumbing.

I mounted the fuel pump and filter high under the tub by using two open bolt holes from the tub. It's tucked up nice and high above where the exhaust will be run and the rear axle will never reach it (broken drive shaft might).

I ran the lines through the c-channel under the tub (driver side) and brought them through the driver side of the trans tunnel up to the back of the engine. I secured them with some repurposed original brake line clips. I tried to run the lines down the passenger side at first but the xfercase shifters and the O2 sensor were in the way. The driver side of the trans tunnel was unobstructed and a straight run from the pump so that worked out the best.

The fuel pump's ground checked good so that's all done.

New list in no specific order:
1. Wiper switch
2. Exhaust
3. Driveshafts
4. Howell chip and injectors

I have to search for pics of the wiper switch wiring. I have a four wire plug from the wiper and no plug to hook it to. I have an old harness I can cut a plug out of if need be, just gotta figure out which one it is.
