Re: 72 k20

Thanks guys! I don’t have much in the way of pictures but today was an excellent day of work. My brother came and helped me all afternoon, we cleaned out and yanked bed one last time for a while and finished grinding down the plug welds on the back of the cab corners, the plug welds on the bottom of the outer rockers, touched up the paint under neath from welding the rockers in, and primed the cab corners and the welds on the outer rockers. I also installed the dust cover on the transmission, replaced the water pump, adjusted the valves, installed the bedside tool box liner and door, cleaned the windshield inside and out, Pressure washed the oil off the firewall and inner fenders from running the valves, put it on my geico policy, AND DROVE IT HOME. Plan is to get it registered on Monday morning. I drove it about 20 miles just taking my time in the dark with my brother following behind me. I need to work on the carb some as it falls on its face past about 3/4 throttle. I’m sure it’s something simple there. Other than that everything else went very smooth... well with the exception of not putting enough gas in it to get to the gas station when I left the shop. It ran out at the intersection where the gas station I was headed too was. My brother was in my company truck(We work for the same company) so I jumped out and grabbed the gas can in the back of that truck. No harm no foul I guess. It was a great day. Of course my brother took the only pic of the day and didn’t know how to hold his phone to get it to come out right on here.

Re: 72 k20

Richard your a saint, it was late and I was worn out when I got home and posted this, thanks for the flip. I wasn’t about to mess with it last night. Pete, thanks man I couldn’t have done it without a bunch of your parts! Hopefully some time we can meet up again and you can see it in person. Old blue, thanks for the encouragement along the way! It still has a long way to go to be what I envision but it’s the baby steps along the way that make it fun building these trucks. I’m gonna try and get a picture with all my trucks and my Camaro together in the next few weeks, I gotta bring the Camaro home first.

Re: 72 k20

Well, I’m about 250 miles in this week and so far so good. It hasn’t left me stranded yet! I’ve got some rattles and such inside the cab to quiet down mostly in the doors. I also need to fix a small rear axle leak on the passenger side axle flange to hub. Haven’t noticed any other leaks anywhere. I’ve also stumbled upon what I believe will be a free front Dana 60, spare round 205 and whichever trans is bolted to it from an 80s K30
The Dana 60 is quite likely to end up under my K20. The rest may end up with one of my spare factory 14 bolt disk brake rears under my 3100 with the 44 from the K20. I’ve been wanting to 1 ton swap the 3100 for a bit so this will hopefully let me accomplish that.
I took this photo on the way home tonight after a cruise with the kids. It’s a 72 ochre and white custom 2 tone C10 long bed. I see it around town quite a bit.

Re: 72 k20

Here’s a few shots I took back behind my house near San Juan Generating station. I’ve also got some plans for the coming week, as I will be off for several days before the fourth. I plan to get my heater functional, door panels, handles, and arm rests installed, I got the metal inlet line for the edelbrock 1406 to be able to run a solid line from the pump to the carb, Im thinking I’ll run this in stainless. I just need to decide how I want to get from inverted flare at the pump to 3/8 stainless. It’s possible to flare stainless but not easy. I’ll also probably run a metal inline filter up near the carb. I’ve also got an issue with my fuel gauge I need to inspect. I’m thinking it may need either the resistor on the gauge or the sending unit replaced. It only goes as high as bout half way between 1/4 and 1/2 tank. Once the fuel level comes down below half it seems to
Move with the level but won’t go any higher than just below 1/2 tank. I’m sure I’ll find some more things to occupy my time but these are the projects I’m shooting to get done. I fixed the leaking passenger axle flange last night and also swapped a new set of tires on it that I had stashed away. They are mounted on 90’s steel wheels for now eventually I’ll get around to swapping them onto the original nub wheels. 265/75/16 fills the wells up nicely. So far I’m about 600 miles on it and no reliability issues at all. It starts right up and runs pretty good going down the road. I’ve got no complaints so far. Still lots to do but no complaints.

Re: 72 k20

Great job Tyler. In my opinion, that is the perfect truck.

I have ruined many vehicles by doing frame off restorations. My wife and I drove the wheels off cars until I restored them and they were relegated to life under a cover.

I have somebody ask me at least once a week when I am going to restore or paint my Longhorn. I am determined to let it age gracefully.

Re: 72 k20

Thanks Larry, one of these days Ill get it shot in the original medium over dark olive and all the trim back on it. I really like the 557 scheme a lot. But your right for now I dont have any problems driving it around where ever I need it to go. Its just ugly enough that I dont care if it gets scratched up, but at the same time its handsom enough that it gets compliments at the gas station... truly the best of both worlds haha. I think the truck gets more attention than the Camaro does honestly, and the Camaro is a huge garage queen.

Pete, thanks man weve sure been enjoying it. The kids ask me at least once a day if we can go for a ride... I havent figured out if its because they like riding in it as much as me or because they think there might be a trip to the gas station for a treat either way its been fun riding around with them. I drove it around Farmington for 3-4 hours with them on Wednesday alone. Im finding it hard to work on it as much as Id like simply because I want to drive it so much, I can deal with the minor bugs and squeaks/rattles for now.

Re: 72 k20

Too bad I didn't realize you were in Farmington when I stayed there last spring. Maybe that casino would have less money.

The first time I was in Farmington, you were about 10 years old.

I had my Harley Davidson serviced and a new oxygen sensor installed at the dealer in Springfield, MO. We took off and by the time we go to Farmington, that sensor had vibrated loose.

We called the dealer and the shop foreman was really dry. He said bring it down, and he would put it on the lift first thing next morning.

We rode in, and he was standing in the shop door. I revved it a couple of times, and shut it off and asked him what he thought.

My wife had never been overweight like me, but he said (It sounds like a condition caused by hauling fat women around.) Whoa.

They became great friends before it was over.

Re: 72 k20

Haha that’s pretty funny. There’s what seems like a lot of people around here that have that old school kind of sense of humor, it still works here. Farmington is still a pretty gritty oil field town even though a lot of the bigger companies have moved out. I’ve only lived here for about 9 years or so. Originally I’m born and raised in the Blue Ridge mountains of Virginia/West Virginia. I’ve been thru your slice of Arkansas once or twice actually. It reminds me a lot of home in some ways. The gentle rolling mountains, and nice people. I really like the Ozarks a lot.
Hit me up If you ever find your self in Farmington again. We can find something to do to keep Sunray from stealing all your money again, they do have decent food though.
