My long term project , morris truck v8

Anything goes - chassis, V6's, V8's etc.
It's coming along, once I get all the major components in place I'll start the wiring . I bought a speedway universal 22 circuit kit. That's the next big step. I mounted the radiator, fan and hooked up the hoses today hopefully for the last time.

Went down to the hardware store and picked up some screws yesterday and mounted my air compressors to the frame. I tried mounting them to the side of the frame behind the tires but just didn't like the look of it so I ground the mounts off and decided to go with this inner location.

Is this for air ride or compressed air supercharging? Or both?

I hadn't heard of compressed air supercharging till you just said it ,kind of an interesting concept. I had to look it up. My system is designed just for air suspension.

Compressed air supercharging is pretty rare these days. The upside is no parasitic load on the engine. Downside is you need to carry a tank big enough to get you down the quarter mile. Apparently the big problem was setting the car up on a rolling road. Took ages between runs to refill the tank each time. Turbo or Super proved a lot more practical.

I made up a mount for my airlift air controller I made it with the same tapering hole style as some of the other parts

Very nice work.

I fitted airbags to my Mercury, but I had a lot more room to work with than in a Morris Minor.

I finished up the mounting of the air suspension height sensors the other day. My air system will work off of the height sensors and the air pressure and adjust automatically according to the load.

I started to try fitting up the body pannels today, they have all been on multiple times but still need some adjustments to fit right, the bed has a long way to go yet before it is ready to go, that will probably be next on the list to get some attention

Thanks Brian , I try to do my best on it one little step at a time . Most of the time it takes a couple tries but usually it comes together. I'm Hoping to make some good progress this winter.
