Re: '69 c20 rescue kind ..... of.

made some decisions today.
as tempting as it is to rip the truck apart and throw all these new parts at it i decided to break it down in to two separate projects in two sessions.

first ill do the spindle swap and get the front end running gear up to spec.
going to use a m/c from the same year as the donor truck BUT keep the vac booster for now.
that should eat a weekend up by itself without tossing in hydro boost drama.

i feel like that limits the amount of things that can POP UP and have me walking to work on tuesday.

then i can bench build the hydro boost set up including the push rod and plumbing, get a new style pump. ect.......

new lower ball joints came today. 80% of parts in hand to do the front corners.
i love every machine. even the ones i hate.

Current project (1959) fifty niner gmc fleetside:
