New project 66 k20

A couple of you guys know that I was doing the deal helping me find the correct vin and information, so I thought I would start a possible build blog on it I'm just going to play with it for now I appreciate everyone that helped me, I'm used to the 69 to 72 even though I had a 66 in high school but it wasn't a K series anyway don't make fun of it when I stated that I needed to try to find the right vin I said it was rough and it is rough, the bed is so hammered I'm going to try to find a donor garbage trailer or something as I hate to tear apart another truck if I found one can anybody tell me if that's the original tappet cover I have found I'm watching Wheel to the other three thank you for helping me on that please give comments but be gentle

Re: New project 66 k20

First off Good looking project! I would say that bed is probably salvageable if you can find a junk yard bed with damage in different areas to cut patch panels from. On the cab I know I have also seen longer cab corners available but not sure if they went up that high to cover that dent.

All in all it looks to be pretty complete truck to start with, many trucks here on east coast are rusted away much worse than that.

Thank you I realize the bed can be salvageable but there is a lot of work in it I'm going to look for a donor and when I have the bed off I'm going to try jacking the dent out of the cab or welding on flange on the back and pulling it against the frame with a frame pull, I think between the that and a little bit of massaging with a hammer it should get close, the thing I liked about this truck is it still has all the factory grease pencil marks and stuff on the firewall it is what it is but it's been worked on a ranch

Re: New project 66 k20

That 6 cyl valve cover is off a 250 mericruiser marine engine I believe. Man I'd drive it the way it is. Sharp looking truck.

I would not change anything of the look of the truck only mechanical things that make it more reliable, love the look.

Re: New project 66 k20

Never seen a valve cover like that on any chevy I6 I've seen.

I really like the truck man!

Re: New project 66 k20

Love the truck. What size tires are on it? Can you take pictures of suspension give specs on ride height? Not to far from you and brother is in Orem. Interested in wheels if you decide to get rid of them. Found 3, 17 inch splits at a junkyard a few weeks ago should have got them, like the looks of them.

The Wheels on the truck are all 17 in there were three wheels that were three piece and two that are two piece I would like to give a big shout-out to Kenny in New Mexico he found one in his collection that is what's fun about this board is the friendship that you gain in building and having your interest in Hobbies

Nice truck, not seeing a problem with any of it. Looks really solid. Even the heater hose on the passenger floor to keep the ladies feet warm... good idea.😉

I've just been doing a little tinkering on it we've got about a foot of snow the hit right when I got it

I did get a matching 4th shielded valve stem or three-piece wheel from Member Bimus, that was very helpful I also found a oil bath air cleaner for it and I've just been kind of cleaning a few things up I'm thinking I'm going to have to pull the front hubs and do the brake shoes

There are at least 2 of us that have dealt with brakes on the 3/4 tonclosed knuckle dana44f so if you need help holler. Parts are scarce but not impossible other than drums. Do you know if you have the large knuckle front axle?

I don't know what size my front end is yet it , I will be tearing it apart and discovering what I need I'm hoping I will be able to get wheel cylinders and everything

Re: New project 66 k20

A little bit more update on the 66 K20 today the owner that I bought it from got a hold of me says that he had some paperwork he brought me the original owners manual and half of this spid, if any of you know what the left hand side would read I realize the VIN will be up there and probably the lion cold I can see that it had the 292 straight 6 I can see that I had a 4-speed transmission I can see that it had Deluxe XLR heater I guess oil bath air cleaner and Manuel radio if any of you have pictures of four-wheel drive speeds or can tell me so I can get one duplicated I appreciate the help and once again I appreciate everybody's help on this website
