94 ext cab 5.3 5 sp swap

Hi all, I just joined the board this week. I bought a 68 swb C10 step side last week while in Florida. I live in Illinois and haven't got it home yet. I been looking over the board to learn what I can about those trucks. I plan on doing a frame off to clean it up and paint and refresh as I reassemble. I'm wanting to do a 5.3 swap, upgrade brakes, suspension, relocate gas tank.
I'm almost done w a 94 ext cab s10 w 5.3 swap. I have some pix of that project to share.

I want to see more of that evaporator case work. It looks like you're able to keep it functional, just shaved a little

Had to notch the housing to clear valve cover and head.
