Re: Jesses' 48 PU

So now that this is done, I got a little excited and wanted to see it on the ground, so i threw on the wheels and this is what it looks like..... I have to admit it felt like watching a newborn.... I have a long ways to go, but it feels good to see the results after working on the frame for so long...

Re: Jesses' 48 PU

Jesse,

Do you know what kind of ride height your going to have with the TCI kit and 3" blocks? I took a couple of stock springs out of my 53 and put in 3" blocks with 15" rims and am pretty happy with the height but I'm getting ready to install a inline 250 with a 68 camaro rear end am thinking of getting the tci kit.

Re: Jesses' 48 PU

Look at mine and you can see exactly how low it will sit (TCI dropped springs and 3" blocks)... Jesse,the truck is looking great, keep up the good work!

Re: Jesses' 48 PU

Hey DirtyBird, as it sits now. It is at 8 3/4 in the rear and 8 1/2 in the front (running boards). Not exactly sure how much it will drop once I sit the 350/700r drivetrain and with the body weight. Im guessing (hoping that no more than) 1 inch in the rear and 1 1/2 in the front.

Re: Jesses' 48 PU


Hello all, I need some advice, and honest opinions.
A friend of mine owns a small mechanic shop and plays around with hot rods; he saw my LS1 and made me an offer I couldnt refuse. Keep in mind I paid a meesly $500.00 dollars for the engine and trans. He gave me $1500.00 plus a LST engine. It has a mild cam, and runs,no need to overhaul. Here is my dilema. I bought a 454 from my brother in law, he had laying around in his property. I gave him $100.00 for it, obviously. I would want/need to rebuild it and who knows how much money i would spend. So here is where im undecided or need advice. I can go with the LST and be done with it, but if i decide to go with the 454, do i have enough room under the hood for it? Im concerned with header room, steering shaft..... Keep in mind i used a S10 clip....
Has anyone squeezed a 454 into a 48 truck? What are my challenges? Pics? Advice? So many questions and not enough knowledge.......HELP!!!!

Re: Jesses' 48 PU

I installed my Pirate Jack brake booster and master cylinder kit. It also included a automatic combination proportioning valve. One thing it did not include was any sort of instructions, not that i would have read them, but sometimes we need direction. I ran the rear brake line but i stopped because i was too impatient and cross threaded the front brake port on the valve. So i walked away from it before i messed it up more. Its aluminum so it wasnt hard to mess up. Having seconds thoughts about it and considering going with a manual valve instead. Thoughts? Advice?

Re: Jesses' 48 PU

Hello everyone, its been a long time since I work on my truck or post pics. I was promoted at work and I travel a lot now, so I have very little time to work on it. The last few weekends I have dedicated them to the brake lines. I finally finished them yesterday and here it is. This is the first time I run brake lines, I am sure it has been done better but I think they turned out okay. I used brake lines I bought at my local NAPA store. They are metal covered with a green anti corrosion paint, so they are hard to see with black chassis.

Welded a small tab to the frame so I could secure the line and keep it from rattleing loose.
