Re: 69 K-10 Build for Dad

Little more progress on the engine. Has a full 05 LS6 top end, including the cam, springs, 243 heads, and super light hollow/sodium filled valves.



Rolled the chassis outside for some photos before 1) It gets cruddy outside 2) The body starts going back on.

Re: 69 K-10 Build for Dad

Got the engine all buttoned up. Gotta finish up the transmission and transfer case next so I can drop it all in the chassis.





I decided to go with a 1990 K/5 Blazer fuel tank...for a couple reasons. 1) It has a 31 gallon capacity, and since it's a lifted longbed, the extra size of the tank is a non-issue.
2) Those blazers came with TBI engines, so the tank is already baffled and set up for an in-tank pump. I am just swapping a higher output pump in place of the 12 psi TBI pump.





Took the stock sender/pump bracket and cut it and welded it last night. The 3/8" feed, i was able to use my 37* AN flare tool and flare a tube nut onto that line. The 5/16" return line was a little trickier, so I cut up a steel JIC fitting and TIG'd it to the return tube. I also welded the evap tube closed, as well as the tank vent. I was planning to rely on the vented fuel tank cap, but I might cut the plug out of the vent and run it after all.

Re: 69 K-10 Build for Dad

Got the fuel pump mounted to the hanger and installed in the tank. Was way easy...almost too easy. That can't be good. lol






The tank fit perfect in the rear frame rails without having to move the rear crossmember. There's even plenty of room between the tank and the diff...no worried of bottoming out and slamming the tank to the axle.







Just had to fab up a crossmember to go in front of the tank to attach the tank hanger straps to. Also started routing the return line to the tank in aluminum hard line.

I really like the sender modification you did for the fuel pump. I may have to steal this idea.

Re: 69 K-10 Build for Dad

Finished up running the fuel and brake lines to the rear of the truck, to prep for putting the bed on.







The body mount hardware showed up, so I figured why not throw on the bed...









Gave it a bath to get rid of the year+ of grime and crud on it.




Next up, mate the engine/trans/t-case and slam it in the chassis.

Should see some real progress soon, but in the mean time, I picked up a FWD LS4 5.3 for the heads and some other goodies to complete the L33.

that exhaust manifold intrigues me...seems like you could fab up a really easy turbo kit with that, probably would choke down the turbo a bit

Re: 69 K-10 Build for Dad

Rebuilt the transfer case last weekend, and swapped to the 32 spline input that I needed to mate to the 4L80E. Also pulled the pan off the trans, and cleaned everything up in there...then painted it all.

Got the engine/trans/t-case set in place...kinda/sorta last night. Was bummed to find that the stock 4x4 trans crossmember will not work with an NP241. The front output would be directly in line with the crossmember......so I guess I get to fab one up.

Re: 69 K-10 Build for Dad

Thanks for the link, mcbassin. I ended up cutting up the stock 205 crossmember a bit and making it fit.

Finally got it all installed and bolted down tight. Was able to measure for driveshafts and get those ordered up.



Got nice on Saturday, so I rolled the cab outside and gave it a bath. Had to wash all the nastiness off of it, from sitting around collecting dust.



Pulled the seats and carpet out, so I could get to the floor. Installing a hi-hump in this low-hump cab.



Plasma cutters rule.



A height comparison between the high and low humps.



Voila.

Re: 69 K-10 Build for Dad

Not in chronological order, but here's a couple pics of the t-case rebuild/input shaft swap.





Picked up some trailblazer SS manifolds


No dice.




The solution:
Planning to weld some pipe to these to get the outlets away from the frame, and then a couple of 2.5" V-bands to connect to the rest of the exhaust.










Tires also showed up.
33x12.50x15 BFG All-Terrains. I'm planning to have the red factory rally wheels sandblasted and powdercoated silver, to stick to a resto-mod theme.

Re: 69 K-10 Build for Dad

Not much new...collecting parts and trying to stay warm. I'm in the winter funk...need a week off from wrenching to recharge.

The dash and bezel showed up. Dakota Digital VHX. Pretty kickass stuff.
