Re: 1965 C20 fleet side longbed DD low budget build.

I know the feeling. I'm 25. I've met a few folks on here but not in person. I'm supposed to be heading over to Ta2Don's place sometime soon. I always enjoy the older crowd. Our generation sucks to be honest. Us younger classic guys really have to stick together. We'll eventually be a pretty small group compared to now.

Looking forward to following this.

Re: 1965 C20 fleet side longbed DD low budget build.

The last photo my buddy enjoyed towing me home a little to much. Truck left me stranded for the 2nd time ever. :/ turns out it was an ignition issue inside of the distributor itself. But never the less. Needed a tow and of course there's a stuper duty in town. Grrr. Haven't had much time to mess with it latley. Have a new daily driver I've been focusing my efforts on. And 4 jobs have a way of taking up some time.

Re: 1965 C20 fleet side longbed DD low budget build.

I like the lift it did raise it up some, looks good, and I'm also rethinking the V/8 deal verse the 292...it's hard to do anything without a garage..

Don't worry, if that's a 6.0 powerchoke you can give your buddy a bad time about those diesels blowing head gaskets even when the engine is off. haha

Re: 1965 C20 fleet side longbed DD low budget build.

Well I made the move on mine from a 292 to a BBC 402, she sounds sweet too...you'll have to go and look through my build it's all there, now I'm just trying to get the exhaust worked out....I'll tell you it's been a wild road just because it seems to be a bolt in, easier said than done...

Re: 1965 C20 fleet side longbed DD low budget build.

Matt glad your back and working on the ole truck...they require lotsa work, I had to replace the cam already in that BBC 402 but she's running good again....I've been having trouble with photobucket.com with my pictures won't let me upload any new pictures....
But it's justified when I go out in it everyone is looking and giving the thumbs up...
can't wait to see some new pixs...

Lovin it out here in Wyoming. Awesome mountains I'll grab so pictures this spring when I take the TT up into the hogh country for trout fishing. She's running great. All new top end gaskets and new valve stem seals. Those where the culprit for the smoke. There's a few old 60s trucks laying in there Graves out on ranches n stuff.
