    Edit: @Rusty Nail had me questioning my setup, but going over the parts I ordered online and bought locally, it was clear I got the correct parts for what I was doing. I mean, yeah, it's a '65, and all the 65's I have seen didn't have a fan clutch setup on them. So this is already an upgrade. I switched out the short water pump soon after I got this truck, so that is already a non-stock item, but it sure makes running a fan without a big old spacer, much easier, and the fan is nicely positioned in the shroud opening.

    So the 76 fan clutch I got, and the fan blade is for 65-79, it's good to go. This being normal rotation, I got parts for that, no serpentine reverse rotation is on any of my stuff. V-Belts all the way. :rocking:

    This looks like the 19 inch fan blade and clutch I found on ebay. The clutch, if it hadn't leaked, I would have put that whole unit on, IF it wasn't too big for the shroud. The 19 inch will go on when the 292 gets swapped in, and a shroud will have to be constructed to fit the fan.

    Got a loan paid off, and I told my wife that I need to get this 292 in Crusty Biscuit. It's time. But I need to get a bunch of parts for it, and I want to acquire them before dumbass in chief raises our taxes. She was cool with that. SWEET!

    So I ordered a set of these exhaust manifolds...

    And this heat plate...

    Still need to get the RV/Marine cam that Tom Langdon developed, supposed to be a good cam for a mostly stock engine, and the highway rpms I want my torque curve to be at when cruising down the road. Eventually I will get an Offenhauser 4-barrel intake manifold, so I can run either a recalibrated Q-Jet similar to what was on the Pontiac 250, or a modified 4160 Holley. 12Bolt Tom has a kit to make the Holley carbs a three barrel. So the I-6 will run on a single barrel for around town, and when power is needed the vacuum secondaries provide the extra oomph to make the six get up and go.
