Re: Project Stupid Move - A rebuild for the Boy

Nothing like a 67-72 K truck, my favorite. Also the power to weight ratio of a small block in an S type truck is pretty fun, I have a V8 S10 shortbox too.

Re: Project Stupid Move - A rebuild for the Boy

Might turn Punching bag into a mini-wood hauler trailer.....hmmm

Dang, nice score on the Blazer. I vote is to get it into the weeds.
this looks like it could get fun real quick.

Re: Project Stupid Move - A rebuild for the Boy

He's savin his nickels for some drop spindles, springs and such. We towed it on a rope just like it is. No engine, trans, or SHOCKS. Dumping snow in the dark all the way across town. That was a fun ride "Follow me" I always say.

He's talkin automatic now as his NV3500 has seen better days (all those days before Knuckles got it). I wish he'd stick with the manual. I just think the 2wd Blazer in a close ratio five speed would be killer.

I'll run the name suggestions by him. Flyin' Dime would be cool!

Five speed, hopped up blazer is badass. I'd rock that. And I HATE driving stick as a daily.

Mcgaughy spindles and 2" blocks, $202.63 to your door from Grunion Fabrication in AZ. Best Mcgaughy prices anywhere, just in case someone had, I dunno, a nice shiny new truck they wanted to do something with......

Re: Project Stupid Move - A rebuild for the Boy

Thanks for the tip on the parts! I'll point him that way. That fancy clutch is already roached, don't know what's going on there but he's hell bent on TH350 now.

No touchy shiny new truck. I'd love to put better tunes in there but need that $$$ for C10. Would also love to get it tuned but powertrain warranty is good until 11/17. I did get that Range AFM delete dealio (awesome), Rough Country leveling kit and pulled all the accessory stuff off. Got the running boards sold for $200. Ordered an OEM take off fuel door that'll be here tomorrow. That's it!

Re: Project Stupid Move - A rebuild for the Boy

Shorter mufflers maybe?

Honestly, it's a totally valid gripe and I wish it wasn't anonymous so I could go apologize. I've been on his azz about just that. Dishes in the cupboards rattle around, clock falls off the wall. It's bad. The other day he stops and does a brake stand right in front of the neighbors house, which is like 20' from the road. I'z pissed.

Well you have to appreciate the fair warning, my neighbors just called the cops instead when I was a kid.

Re: Project Stupid Move - A rebuild for the Boy

He plucked the motor and put it on a stand. Sucker was running way-lean and he's gonna need valve guides AGAIN before he whaps it back together. Trans is on Craigslist, Lincoln Locker is behind the shop, few other ticky-tacky parts saved, rest went to re-melt for the tune of $53. Grandpa handed down the '75 Silverado before it's time while he saves the moolah to make the Blazer. I HAD dibs on the perfect original front bumper. Getting jackazz hours at the hotdog stand and I'm riding his azz about a tech program down at the college. Now he's running around with some GIRL! Ugh!

Re: Project Stupid Move - A rebuild for the Boy

Boy been working his azz off at his new job (American Engine and Machine). He's like a pig in sh!t man! First payday is today and he'll be dropping most of that into the Blazer. His motor is back together but still needs push rods. Looking at a TH350 I imagine.

Re: Project Stupid Move - A rebuild for the Boy

Well, that didn't last long. He ran the snot out of the thing, lost a lobe and the thrust bearing in the mains. He's got a roller Vortec on the stand, ready to build but needs to do heads too. Forced to drop the nice motor in until he can get it done.

Re: Project Stupid Move - A rebuild for the Boy

Well, nice motor has a valve problem at #6 so the heads came off last night. He's using the Crummy to get to work. Hope he can afford to put gas in that sucker AND get something of his own to run again
