Clean all the wires cut the battery horn and fuel filter mounts out.run a electric fuel pump under the truck and run the fuel line from behind the motor to the carb.try and reroute your clutch and brake lines to clean that compartment up and you will be looking good.mount the battery in the bed to.

all sounds good, so i need a new fuel pump if i move the location of the filter? and how much do brake and clutch lines go for? the stainless steel braided ones

It can add up that's for sure take a look on my post.to get a idea you don't have to go that in dept but the more nice you go the more you can spend.Or just strip it clean and paint everything and put back together all stock and clean that always works too.

Well the reason would be is your not running the line were it runs now it will come from the rear right to the carb.

Braided lines are only used from the body out to the moving wheels. Anywhere else you want and need solid metal lines.

thanks for all the info, i help my dad out everyday about all day so it might take over a month to be finishing cause i only give it like 30 mins every 2 days, and ill also let u guys know its the 1st time i take out an engine and tranny , so i will need input when i start to mess things up

im gonna wire tuck, relocate battery and horns, question: i wanna go electric fuel pump to run cleaner looking fuel line, how do i delete the mechanical fuel pump?

 

sucks cause its a new fuel pump, but my mind is made up to go electric and run line behind motor

Good idea.
