Re: 1968 Suburban K20 Past & Present build

Brothers show 2016 was probably my favorite, since the drive in was easier this time and the weather was nice. Plus, I met more members of this forum than in any other years past! It was great to meet, and talk with each one of you! Thanks for stopping by to say hello.

Re: 1968 Suburban K20 Past & Present build

Chris,
Very nice to meet you as well.

Here is the HO52 info as promised.
3rd member and cover gaskets, Felpro from Napa
Pinion Seals
SKF 25970
National 411330N
They also mention a felt behind the pinion seal if you have it, 5M89

There is a thread here called "HO52 pinion retainer" that White Whale posted a reply to on 7-22-2014 that has all the seal and bearing numbers.
Pirate 4x4 has a 46 page thread on these axles.
Stovebolt forum has a ton of info also.

Good luck with the gear swap, I am retired and work cheap, if you need help, call me.

Re: 1968 Suburban K20 Past & Present build

This thread is long overdue lol! Thanks for taking the time to put this together. Your Burb is truly an inspiration to myself and most likely many others on this site.
Well done Chris!

Re: 1968 Suburban K20 Past & Present build

I haven't been doing anything with the burb lately, since I have been taking it to as many shows as possible. This last weekend, I took the burb up to Idyllwild. It's a good work out for the burb, since it is a steep mountain road up to 5000' elevation.

This Friday I am planning on tearing into my electrical, since my tail lights have a gremlin in them.

Mid October I plan to do some axle work in the front Dana 44, and doing a 3rd member swap in the rear Eaton (just collecting parts right now).

Re: 1968 Suburban K20 Past & Present build

Chris, very nice burb! I've always liked seeing pics of it when you shared them. Great job on a very nice restoration. That is awesome that it was handed down and it made it all those years in your family too.

Re: 1968 Suburban K20 Past & Present build

To add to the info I posted above about the HO52, a 14 bolt Detroit Locker can be used in the HO52 carrier and you use 14 bolt axles.
Also 14 bolt drum brakes can be installed on the HO52 which is nice because I believe brake parts for these old axles, especially drums are hard to get.
Jeremy, Jbclassix has a nice write up about the brake drum swap.

Re: 1968 Suburban K20 Past & Present build

I was able to get the most annoying electrical gremlins resolved this last Friday but I will not lie, I threw in the towel and hired my neighbor who is an electrician to seek out the problems I have been trying to resolve myself for way too long. He loves to work on our trucks, and even has a K5 that is sitting on a 2002 truck chassis with a 6 liter engine.

As expected, most of the problems were ground related. I apparently just did not remove enough paint where the bolts would go through to get a proper ground for the tail light buckets, as for the front lights and the gauge panel lighting both turn indicators when clicking the turn signal switch. That was because I used single filament bulbs in the front running light buckets! Once the bulbs were swapped with dual filament bulbs, the turn signals and gauge panel began to work normally..

My windshield wiper motor is working again, this was because of a missing mounting bolt. This one the one bolt used by the motor to get ground from the firewall, and it must have worked itself loose and fell out (I later found it under the front seat).

My gauges all work now. I never could seem to get the AMP and TEMP gauges to work right, and found out that both of the little 4 amp fuses in the front harness were defective and not working. The TEMP sending unit, this turned out to be a defective new part as well.

The original OE AM radio is working now, this too was not working because of a missing ground to the radio.

As a bonus, a secret kill switch was added.

The total cost was minimal, and I was ecstatic getting that last remaining thorn in my side of nagging troubles with my truck fixed. I even went back and gave my neighbor a large cash tip, since he was so good at getting these problems resolved and explaining everything he did.

So, if you need an automotive electrician for your truck. This guy will get it resolved quick.

www.ejwireworks.com

He is a mobile technician, or you can drive to his house to do the work.
Money well spent for me.
