Drill already arrived, waiting for the sun, latest in spring. In the meantime you can prepare yourself: https://www.unityusa.com/

Re: My 1968 C-20 Golden Anniversary Project

If you search in the internet for engine suffix -YV you will find often 327 m/t (for manual trans.). This is wrong in my opinion, see also Chevrolet truck parts catalog, Oct 1969-
It's clear stated C10-C20 3-speed Automatic and this is what I see in practice on my truck.

Looks fantastic man! When you are finished please send me a video showing how it operates. Thanks for the link! I didn't know they can be purchased new... Now I don't have to look for a used one.

Electrical part some issues, missing power on the sealed beam due old greace in the front gear. Solved. One short circuit in the rear still under investigation.

Re: My 1968 C-20 Golden Anniversary Project

Spotlight is working know. The reason for the short circuit was in this case not the switch, but thank you again for the advise. The reason was a corroded inner bar, therefore the full axial movement was not possible and the lamp was wrong assembled. The rear contact was collided with the gear key.
