Re: High School Build Project III

Was just looking thru your build, I saw where you cut holes I the cross member for exhaust-----I did the same on my build and finally got to the end of my build and took the truck to a large muffler shop locally----the guy said "whats this"? I told him and he said "been in this business 30 years, done hundreds of these ole trucks and have Never seen that done" I just smiled and told him that Id "heard" of someone doing that and thought Id try it!!!

Putting an 87 box on - quicker ratio and use metric 87 o-ring lines to mate with LS pump fitting

Re: High School Build Project III

In the end, using a later model gear is easier than trying to find an original.

I decided to replace my 68 era pump (still haven't), I ordered three times and each time I was sent a later version of the pump. The auto parts stores' comment was "its the right part number, you can use it----just change your hoses and slightly modify your frame and it will work fine"
I put a stop to those comments when I told them if they would bring their butts over and do the work----and give me the new metric hoses I might use their product. That put an end to their "help"!!

The problem is that the rebuilders lump all gears for trucks from around 64 up into the eightys under one part number-----so if you order a 68 gear, theres no telling what you will actually end up with.

When I get around to it Ill go to one of a couple rebuilders who aren't into "Lumping". I was in a hurry and it became a real pain at the time.

Re: High School Build Project III

This is so cool. I wish we'd had the option for a class like this at my high school. It's good to see kids still interested in getting their hands dirty.
