Re: Dad's old '80 SWB...

Right now I am rebuilding the power steering gearbox... Taking inventory of what I have and what I need!

Re: Dad's old '80 SWB...

One of the best things about these trucks is that they're patient. I've been waiting years to start my build, and now it's rollin. Good luck man.

Re: Dad's old '80 SWB...

Transmission time!
Got the TH350C separated from the old 305 last night...
Would rather go with a 700r4...
But I have to start being value conscious or this thing will never see the road again...

Re: Dad's old '80 SWB...

well... I'm at it again...
After a 3 year hiatus!
Got my engine running.... AGAIN...
Got my TH350C rebuilt yesterday...

After going to C-10s in the park this year I told myself to work on it or sell it....
Since it was my Dad's, I cant sell it!

Trying to see if I can get it moving on its own power for the first time in 10 years...

Need to:
fix an oil leak...
mate transmission with new flexplate...
drop them in with new starter and headers...
run exhaust...
new radiator and fans...
and... still need a good steering box!
