Re: 67 Plain Jane C10 396 build

The V8 crossmember positions the engine closer to the front, placing the front of the engine in similar position as the front of the I6 engine. The six cylinder engine is longer, therefore the crossmember is set towards the rear about 4 inches for the 6 cylinder. The crossmembers mount where the frame starts to rise for the front suspension and that is why the V8 crossmember is different than the I6 crossmember.

Re: 67 Plain Jane C10 396 build

I broke out the torch this morning and dimpled the frame for the steering box. I used my special tools; an old lower control arm shaft and an old ball from a lower ball joint.

I also notched the core support mount.

Next on the list of frame mods is to notch the frame for the big block. I took these patterns off a 68 C10 short coil spring frame.

The X's are the bolt holes for the engine mounts, etc...

Re: 67 Plain Jane C10 396 build

Yeah I know about the engine stands theM selves being different. I think what confused me is the picture, that's the trans crossmember correct.

I just purchased the mounts from The Truck and Car Shop and they are listed as the rear motor mounts for 6 cyl. and V8. That crossmember actually supports the bell housing and is V8 specific.

Re: 67 Plain Jane C10 396 build

I finally got my frame painted.

Last week I decided that I was going to spray the Chassis Saver Antique Satin Black paint instead of my original plan to brush it on. I knew it would come out much better if I sprayed it, but the reducer is banned in California. I had the paint, but had to order the reducer from out of state.

Check out all the frame holes in the shadow.

Thanks, I really like your build as well and I'm subscribed. Our trucks are so similar, although our builds are going in different directions.

This is a great build. Hard work and details trumps exotic parts in my opinion.

Thanks. So far the most exotic parts are the yellow zinc nuts and bolts.

I was on the fence for replacing my brake lines, but I just cleaned them up instead. Some scrubbing with a stainless pot scrubber and a satin clear coat.

Yea, I'm trying to get as much done as possible, while I wait for my clear zinc plated hardware to come back. I also had them plate all the bolts and U-bolts that hold the front suspension together, so that has been a slight hold up.

But, I decided to get the 9/16 U-bolts for the lower shafts and I have a good supply of new 7/16 grade 8 flange bolts and locking flange nuts in stock, so I'll use those to bolt the front suspension crossmember in. Those bolts are black and look normal when installed.

After the cross member is tight, I can do the final installation for the front suspension and get the engine and trans in. Then, I should be able to mock up the rear suspension and start mocking up the exhaust.

I plan to get a lot done this weekend.
