I followed my plan of making clearance for the socket head cap screws on the upper mount locations. I had to grind back on the ribs a bit to make clearance for both the bolt and the hex socket that I used to tighten down the bolts. Still seems like there is plenty of meat on the case, and I didn't get too close to any of bolts that hold the adapter to the transmission. I also had to drill out the threads in the upper holes on the Novak adapter.

I've gotten the frame welded back together, replaced the brake line, installed a 1966+ parking brake setup, and cut the new hole for the shifter. Still have to reconnect the fuel line, install the driveshaft, cobble up the exhaust, install the new speedometer cable, and do a fluid change. Can't wait to see how the truck responds to all of the changes.
