Re: My 1994.."never enough" build..

Thanks! The pullies and brackets are billet..the alternator and WP are chrome..I think the contrast will be nice with the block painted red..now all I'm missing is the oil Ian,valve covers..and oh..the 400 crank from the machine shop

Re: My 1994.."never enough" build..

Man, those are some huge honkin' ribbed pulleys - are you hiding a huffer somewhere?
Who's turning your crank? I have a couple of std/std ones if you need one. I may also have a pair of polished aluminum valve covers we didn't use on my son's truck a few years back, his roller rockers hit 'em.

I wish there was!! I just like the look and got a great deal on the kit! And are the valve covers centerbolt? If so I'd be interested just PM me a price! and a friend of my dad is doing the crank..hinsleys machine shop on east 50th. And my dad was looking for another 400 crank. If ya got one PM me a price on that too and I'll let em kno!

Re: My 1994.."never enough" build..

Getting there.looks good.With the front of the old trucks being pretty much flat I guess you are having to contour the old grille to mach the curves of the newer truck?
