06262012: Well I got out to the shop to work on the 66. The parts I ordered came in, stopped out at the bolt shop and spent some cash and still forgot some of the bolts needed.
No bolts came with this job and its looking like I will end up custom making the rest of what's needed. I cut the old Exhaust off, removed the column shift linkage, After looking over other areas of the car I found allot of lose bolts all threw the car. Removed engine frame pads, got to re-install them and drill four holes that are not there.  
Here are some of the pix's from today's work.
The ride home with engine in the back truck bed.
Clened the dust plate and painted silver.
Re- taped intake carb. bolts. installed lift plate for Ford use.
These are the Bolts I order from JEGS racing. 1 day shipping is nice.
Installed flex plat after I clened it up and parinted gloss Black. As you can see the blue locktite is installed and all were torxs to 90 lbs.
After installed, Painted the hole flex plate area to seal it all in.
Check to see if manafolds fit. and installed engine pads.
Here is the gaskits I ordered. they will work just fine.
