Lightbulb Been a long time -1990 K1500

I've been doing some work to my 1990 K1500.. it has come a long way. Just finished rebuilding the 700r4 and putting it and the transfercase back in. I have some pics i will post soon.. but now I am starting on the "much dreaded" interior. I'm not sure which direction I'm going just yet. But I'm hoping to add some newer style while keeping it on a budget. I figured I'd make a post about this process because there's a few things I've researched the internet up and down for, with no results in return. I'm hoping once this thread comes to an end it will help others who come across the same issues (which I will get to when I take some pics)

Re: Been a long time -1990 K1500

Here's a few pics to show where I'm at on it at the moment. And yes I swapped from TBI to a Holley carburetor. I have my reasons for doing so (a lot of people hate on people for doing this) and if anyone is in the position where I was a year or so ago I can give a few shortcuts on how to easily do this.

Go ahead and buy a good electric fuel pump... trust me. Also do not hook the fuel pump up to the original lines and pull gas through the old in tank fuelpump. And yes I tried running the in-tank pump for a while and it does not like being regulated to 7psi . So basically ditch the in tank pump unless you want to really spend some money on an upgraded one. I frame mounted a Holley pump and put a see through filter in line before the pump and also after the pump closer to where the line meets the carburetor. You'll defiantly need to buy a fuel pressure regulator don't cheap out on this part either. A mid ranged one will do the trick. Also install a fuel pressure gauge. I also went with an MSD hei distributor it was tricky finding a "key switched" 12v hot wire. The one I found to work best was a pink wire (it sticks out like a sore thumb). Don't just take my word for it though get a meter to double check.
