    Man, that's extremely disappointing that the NWF foot has required so much modification to work in this application. Seems like it probably cost you more time than it saved you and you had to pay the extra money for it too :(

    agreed

    I would probably recommend to anyone else doing this to utilize the three adapter bolts (circled below) and build a bracket off that. This obviously is not an option if you have a round pattern 205 though.

    Thanks guys.

    I think I'm about ready to pull the engine/trans, finish the boxing/welding and paint the frame. Then I can reinstall the drivetrain, start plumbing, wire the engine, fire the engine, ordering driveshafts, put the cab on etc.

    never even heard of Pittsburgh Kansas. But yeah I would have told you if I was in Kansas for sure.

    This trip is for work and this job is usually 10's or 12's without a day off. I haven't been to Pittsburgh is 10 years so I'm hoping to get a chance to at least visit the southside and maybe hit up the midget bar.

    Where? Aw the weather isn't that bad if you don't mind heat, HIGH humidity, rain and mosquitoes (maybe all at the same time).
