Re: 51 Chev on a S10 frame, named Dale

I like your cab corner solution. Should work well! So have you fired it up yet? It looks like youíre almost ready.

Re: 51 Chev on a S10 frame, named Dale

Hi Guys,

Nothing exciting, but, installed S 10 parking brake assembly with front and intermediate cables. When I replaced the inner kick panel I welded another piece of metal to the inside with 3 weld nuts to accept the parking brake assembly. Before install I also cut and glued some jute to the kick panels.

Had to cut an intermediate cable, and route front cable to take up some excess, and raise cable over exhaust and drive shaft.

Then bled the brakes, adjusted rear brakes, and installed rear wheels and spacers. Used impact gun with loctite on those 1 1/4 inch spacers...... also cut excess off of U bolts.

Also added Power Steering Fluid, Coolant and Oil.

Still need to bleed the clutch, and prime the oil system, but getting closer to start up.

Re: 51 Chev on a S10 frame, named Dale

I may get you to do my E-brake cables, good job. How does the dome light switch work in that location?

Re: 51 Chev on a S10 frame, named Dale

8man - doing the cables is not that bad, just make sure you get cables that are longer than you need, cut them to the length you want, weld a 'tab' on the end, and you have custom length cables. Maybe not pretty, but it works, and no one will see the end. (sorry for the fuzzy pic)

I added a clamp to the floor to keep the cables up and away from the driveshaft. I wish I mounted the assembly a bit higher, but with the plate behind, I can't now. I will clean up the assembly before I add an interior.... but it does work.

as for the door switch, good eye, (you guys don't miss a thing) My wiring harness had the interior door switch wires, so I picked up a few switches, and 2 under dash lights for each end of the dash, and fished some wire from the door jamb to above the kick panels.

I did attach my battery (for the first time) and all was good. No smoke, and the door switches work manually, but I don't have my doors on yet..... maybe add a shim to the door??? not sure,
