Re: SANFORD build thread

For sure John. It was good to meet you and your Dad. It was a neat show and we had a good time. Keep me up to date on any future builds. Hope you get your Grandads truck to PF.

Re: SANFORD build thread

Iím speechless, but can still ask a question. What is the bed wood? Hickory? Your skills are incredible and Iím getting ready to get my 64 started after 3 years of gathering items I know Iíll need. If mine turns out 1/10th your quality, Iíll consider it a success. Congratulations on all the accolades, WELL DESERVED.

1964 Chevy C20 LWB Fleet side, 6 cylinder 292 basic model, soon to be a C10 to make the ride easier and wife quieter...although the latter may NEVER happen. Just starting and gathering lots of parts to get this beauty moving.

I stood in front of your truck for a long time admiring the clean under hood at the LeConte Center in Pigeon Forge last year...really over the top build sir.

Re: SANFORD build thread

Thank you guys for the comments, it was a lot of work but meeting all the great people is awesome. The wood in the bed is black walnut with a satin clear stain. I plan to be back in pigeon forge with it this fall so if you see around please say hello.

Re: SANFORD build thread

I read this thread start to finish again and again.

We have different tastes but I aspire to finish to your impressive level. I fear I will not come close but it won't stop me from trying.

So happy to see you enjoying your truck after the thousands of hours of back breaking work.

Thank you for the time you spent showing us how to do one right.

Robert

Re: SANFORD build thread

Just a small update, after an exhausting fitech experience I have decided to take the plunge for a Holley system. Hopefully with better results. I've driven it about 5 miles but time will tell the tale

What kind of issues did you have with Fitech? My father is getting ready to run his 496 on one he already bought...

Thanks

Re: SANFORD build thread

Hope he has better luck. I bought the 600 hp kit and there in line pump set up. Didn't have any issues for about a thousand miles. I drove the truck to pigeon forge in April and about 3 1/2 hours in the pump quit. I bought a new pump at the show and installed in later. The first trip with it it was extremely loud. I ended up putting an in tank pump and that fixed that problem. Soon after did a test drive and sitting in my driveway it shut off and never started back up. This time it lost cool signal. This is the condensed version. I am going to do an in depth review on it soon. The tech support are not staffed to deal with the issues that are there. These issues stated in April and I'm just now getting a resolve. I hope the Holley systems works well but if not a carb will be going back on.

Re: SANFORD build thread

I read an article in one of the hot rod magazines that Holley has it nailed. "If" I were ever to go that route, that's the one I'd buy.

Great looking truck. Curious on how the Holley set-up worked out?

Re: SANFORD build thread

So far so good on the Holley. I've probably driven it 500 miles so far and no issues. I just wanted to see how it is going to be long term.
