Installed the BKG track bar mount today. I know I have said it before, but working on a rust free truck is such a joy. Everything comes apart nice and easy. Contrast that with my 78 F-150 that I still have not been able to remove the adjustable track bar from and the difference is right there - literally side by side.
Two shots of the mount:
Here is what things looked like after removing the front quad shock/track bar mount:

Once I get the adjustable track bar off of the F-150 and tighten up a couple of loose ends, I will push for it to sell by the end of March.
Also worked on the 68 Chevy. I haven't run it in almost 10 years of living at our house. It ran great when parked. Added 10 gallons of fresh gas, carb cleaner, new air filter, oil & oil filter, fogged the cylinders, new plugs, cleaned all the squirrel crap out from under the hood, took the battery from the Bronco and put it in. Needs new plug wires since the a couple of boots broke and were brittle.
It turned over without the plugs in with no issues. I know fuel came up to the carb because it started leaking out of the carb and started a small fire! Luckily it went out pretty quickly.
Need to ID the carb and order a rebuild kit for it. Tires still had air in them from the time I parked it. They were low and I filled them up to 60PSI to take some shape (bias ply 7.50 R16).
Overall, I think it will run fine and I will do some minor work to get it ready to sell this spring as well - unless that is I find I like having a 3/4 ton pickup that is low to the ground. We are moving this Summer down the street, so I may keep it until at least then to use to shuttle stuff back and forth.
