Re: My new project truck!

If you want to go first class on new wiring harnesses, I recommend M+H www.wiring.com
Not cheap but vintage correct. They use the same gauges of wire, color codes, and connector types, as OEM. Each harness is hand made and signed by the fabricator. They can add in features like HEI, internally regulated alternators, etc.
USA-made.

Bumper off, new one arrived today





SCORE!!! Found this 67 Chevy front clip upstate for $300! These fenders will replace the dented ones on the GMC.

Re: My new project truck!

***UPDATE***

I picked up the 67 Chevy front clip from upstate on Friday. The first thing that I did was remove the original 67 Chevy wiring harness and install it into the 67 GMC to attempt to fix the aforementioned electrical gremlins. The headlights now work, as well as the gauge cluster lights, and I now have a small plastic junction block near the battery. Electrical problems almost solved!
The next day my son and I spent several hours dismantling the entire clip. Several of those evil fender clips BROKE when I attempted to remove them, so I had to crawl inside the clip and either use a crescent wrench, or vise grips to hold the broken clip nuts steady while my son used the ratchet on the other side. (I wonder how many gallons of P B Blaster we used?)
One of the bolts that attaches the inner fender to the bottom of the outer fender (no clip) kept slipping and rounding off when I tried to remove it. Just as I was about to drill out the bolt head, I instead used a chisel to break free the rust that was causing the ratchet to slip and the rounding off of the bolt. This worked and I did not have to drill it after all.
Yesterday we used P B Blaster on the windshield wiper motor and attachments, turned on the switch, then had a tug-of-war on either side of the truck to break it loose from a frozen state. This worked, and the wipers are now fully functional.
Then I turned my attention to the passenger-side door. The window did not want to roll down (no surprise) and the door handle only spun around, so we removed the handles and the door panel. I had to drill one panel bolt head off, then screw it INTO the door with a vise grip (and my hand inside the door) to remove it. This done, I greased the window crank assembly and the window now rolls up and down (still a little stiff).
After we completed this, I remembered a NOS door handle I found at a yard sale, and a NOS door handle “sender” that I found at a GM dealership . I installed those, and I have to say that I have NEVER felt a door handle work as well as this now does!
As soon as I get the turn-signal crescent female wiring plug from a board member I am going to tackle the turn signal problem next. Mine is broken in half, someone spliced wires into it, and some of these wires are no longer attached.
Since I still have not had any luck getting the truck actually started yet (turns over strongly) I am continuing to fine-tooth-comb the wiring (almost done) and get as much electrical things operational as possible. Absolutely NOTHING worked in this truck when I bought it. Not so much as a single light bulb. But that is no longer the case and this has been a learning experience for the both of us.
My son is desperate to see the truck start (as I am) but I am not going to rush this and have an electrical wiring fire (again).

Yes, I am keeping this as a GMC front end. The Chevy photo is deceiving, as it has dents and bends all over it. Even the grill emblem has a dent in it! I am attempting to buy a GMC grill from a board member who is possibly out of town right now. These 67 fenders need new bottom patches. I hope the ever-famous GMC Paul sells them, because I know they would fit great.

WOW!! What a surprise!!!!

Several days ago I called the PO of this 67 truck. I asked him if by any chance he had the spare tire for it (two tires on it are flat), and he replied that he could not remember it ever having one.
Unbelievably, the Previous Previous Owner was actually coming to his house to buy one of the PO's cows the very next day, so PO called PPO and asked him if there was a spare tire for the 67 that he had bought from him 20 years ago.
Well, no one is going to believe this, but the next day the PPO showed up at the PO's house with the ORIGINAL spare tire that he had kept in his shed for the past 20 years!!!!
I just got back from picking it up (and having the old tire dismounted) and here is the proof in the picture below!!! What are the odds of THIS happening?!?!?!

You are SO correct. These men are older, have been friends for years, and are both farmers. Neither would even take any money for this wheel! Like you said...RARE.
Their honesty saved me a lot of trouble looking for the exact wheel for a spare tire for this project. I doubt I would have ever found one anywhere around my immediate area.

It lives again!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The truck started today for the first time since I bought it!!!!! A neighbor of mine who works on race cars came over and helped me install the HEI that I bought from 54caddy. Poured a little gas in the carb to prime the new fuel pump and line that I installed, and VROOM!! My son and I are thrilled since we have spent several months of trying to get this thing running. Good bye forever to the old junky points distributor!

Re: My new project truck!

Sometimes one ton pickups don't come with spare tire/wheels. I'd sure want one though, even if I did not have it mounted on the vehicle.

So what gave you the burning desire to own a 67 1 ton, and specifically a 67???
Do you have a purpose for it? Or is it like my 2 pickups, you just want one, and don't care what others think or any crap about having an old pickup around that is not practical??? LOL

Those wheels look like 16.5's. If you need tires, go to Walmart.com. Just plug in your tire size in their search box, and it will show you all brands and prices of that particular size. They will ship an tire to the store you want at no charge. Sometimes the wait is a few days...

Well, my prized heirloom truck is a 68 stepside. I like the sleek way that 67s look with their lack of marker lights and small rear windows. However I have been eyeing C30 dually flatbeds on this site for several years, and was toying with the idea of owning one. Flatbed trucks have always appealed to me for some reason.
The 68 stepside was supposed to be my final project truck. But when I found this 67 GMC 3500, I was initially disappointed that it was not a C30, and was even considering "cloning" it into one. Then after careful consideration I realized just how rare GMC 3500s are, especially the 67 ones. So I decided to rescue this one from a rusty, isolated, lonely, death out in the farmer's field. It truly is one of the last of its kind, and we site members are saving these endangered trucks from rust-inction.
It will serve as a carry-all for anything that we ever need to move, and be a neat-to-have-around truck!

It used to be fawn I guess. It was some weird tan sort of color.

Re: My new project truck!

Yeah, that's Fawn. Sort of a metallic gold/silver mix. Very prominent interior color in '67, still on inside trim in '68.
Not so prevalent in later years. Maybe they finally ran out of it.

New additions picture

Here is an updated picture of the new additions to the truck. The HEI, plug wires, fuel pump, alternator, air cleaner, and fuel line. Now that I have gotten the truck running, I must figure out why the wheels feel locked whenever I drive the truck in my driveway (not street legal yet). I think that the E brake or regular brakes are locked. The truck moves, but struggles. What a PAIN!!!

Re: My new project truck!

Suggest you remove the plastic fuel filter and replace it with a metal cased one...the plastic ones do not withstand the engine bay heat for too long....

Also, the filter should really be before the pump where there is zero pressure...

not in a pressure line as it is currently installed.

And...those spring style clamps on the filter will fail eventually...suggest screw type ones....

Be safe...

Re e brake locked up...remove the primary e brake cable connectors and lube up the cables going to the rear drums....these cables lock up really easily when a truck sits...

Thanks for the input! That plastic one is temporary so I can gauge how much debris is in the fuel line. This truck had not started in 10 years and it was FILTHY everywhere. So far it has collected a small amount of noticible particles that I can see inside it. The carb has the correct factory filter in it as well. I will get a metal one for when this truck is roadworthy. So I should move the inline filter between the gas tank and the pump?

Re: My new project truck!

I would then leave the plastic one there for the time being, but add an additional one in the line before the pump...

My thinking is there could be junk accumulating in what looks like a new pump....and the filter placed before the pump would trap this...

There should also be a filter sock on the bottom of the fuel pickup on the sender unit in the tank....

If the particles are coming thru as you describe, the sock may be missing...

If the particles are numerous, you may have a rusty tank...if thats the case, and others will chime in with other remedies,,,,I would replace the tank, but before installing it I would run a protection process on the inside of the new tank...there are threads on the board about this process....

I have a confession to make! I did not bother to check or replace the sending unit when my son and I removed the gas tank and dumped out the trash gas. I have a brand new one in my spare parts somewhere, but have not found it yet. However the gas tank is VERY clean with no rust (you may have missed that in post #1). I was surprised at this because when I reclaimed my grandfather and father's 68 stepside from the new owner, the tank was so rusty that the gas was practically rust. Soon as I find the new one I will check the old one (I don't want to have it accidentally fall apart in my hands and have no replacement handy). You have definitely given me something to think about. I never thought about the particles being trapped in the new fuel pump.

Talking Re: My new project truck!

In your picture you have the battery ground cable attached to the exhaust manifold. I would add another cable to the frame also and make sure the cab is grounded to the frame and the block. You can't have to many grounds!

Glad to see you got it running.

Re: My new project truck!

That battery ground lead you have on the exhaust manifold will be a problem sooner or later due to heat soak from the exhaust...

If you look on the top of the alternator bracket, you will see two threaded holes, bolt the ground lead to one of those bolt holes...make sure the ground area is cleaned of all old paint and rust.

Andy4639 is totally correct...you can never have too many ground straps...

Stay safe young man...
