Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.
Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God!
It's scary when you start making the same noises as your coffee maker.

Thanks guys. It is pretty sweet. It was my Father-in-laws and my wife and I just bought it from him.

I started off on Reddit asking about the engine (5 liter/305) knocking and only running on premium (timing). Then I asked about the driver side door being hard to shut and somebody posted a link over here to a thread about 1/2" pex tubing. Thanks kind stranger. The doors work much better now. So I signed up.

I'll be taking it to my local mechanic to sort the timing and get the AC working next week. Then the week after I have an appointment with the local detail shop to give it a good clean. I'm really digging this truck.

Re: How about some pics of '73-'87 Short Beds Part II

Here's a couple pics of my current build. I know it's not for everybody, just what i wanted to build now. I call it El Chapo or (The Shorty). Getting real close to the end of the build. Been working on it hard for the last 14 months.

Building a small, high rpm engine
with the perfect bore, stroke and rod ratio is very impressive...
like a highly skilled Morrocan sword fighter with a Damascus Steel Scimitar.

Cubic inches is like Indiana Jones with a cheap pistol....

1981 k10. Its a mismash of different trucks, from what i can tell it has a 85ish cab original bed they kept the same grille. Got a newly built 350 from aarons automotive in Springfield, which they are outta business so i don't know exactly whats in it.I got this on a trade for my 93 long bed c1500 w/t with a v6 that had 240k miles(very clean minus the paint issue). He really wanted it.

Re: How about some pics of '73-'87 Short Beds Part II

Got some new shoes for the 81. These are 35 x 12.50 r15 general grabber x3's which are a TRUE 35" tire. 4" lift 15 x 8 wheels with 4.5" backspacing, no rubbing on the street but would offroad, much better to drive on the highway now with 4.10's and no overdrive.
