1984 K10-The Rock

This is a truck a buddy of mine donated to help get the shop up and running. Pretty nice truck to begin with, needed a lot of little things. But we’re going to take it from nice to Killer! Plans include paint (midnight metallic blue), cowl hood, Lund moonviser, chrome bull bar, chrome roll bar, chrome nerf bars, LED headlights and turn signals, LED 32” light bar behind the grill, blue LED wheel well lights, replace those goofy tail lights with stock, and new belt line chrome.

Oh the inside we’re giving it a 1000 watt bluetooth stereo, digital gauges, new door panels, a new steering wheel, cleaning the carpet, dash mat, blue LED accent lighting, and replacing the tank selector switch/multi-function switch.

Re: 1984 K10-The Rock

The engine actually sounds REALLY healthy as it is. It’s a 350/700R4 combo with a very aggressive cam, And it has long tube headers. There’s a few things we’ll be addressing like converting from manual to electric choke, but mostly we’ll be focusing on cosmetic. Plans are it will be repainted red with black finned aluminum valve covers, a natural aluminum intake, spun aluminum Dual snorkel air cleaner with functional ram air, and a serpentine belt drive off a mid-90's C/K. And the plan is to make the A/C functional again.

Day 2

Didnít get much done today. Had to run to Sedalia. My $350 80x40 sign had the phone number transposed! Had to bring it back to get it fixed!

We did however get the majority of the motor cleaned and the cowl hood on!

Nice. My 82 has non-working AC and I am considering a serpentine swap too. Good truck to start with.

Then on to the multi function switch. Some genius cut the wire right at the switch, nothing to chase the new wire with! Both pictures are of Emma struggling with that.

Re: 1984 K10-The Rock

So we started today by stripping off the masking, and taking off the intake and valve covers. We discovered roller rockers under there! And zero sludge in the lifter Valley, which leads me to believe it hasnít been very many miles since the rebuild!

Re: 1984 K10-The Rock

Then we put the Edelbrock Torqer intake manifold on it and the SoCal black finned aluminum valve covers on it and it looks Killer! A total transformation! Exactly how I pictured it!
