Can't be sure but I have noticed some stuff from Rock auto shipping from Ontario as well.

Re: Restoring 1980 C10 big ten.

Got some more goodies, head gaskets to be specific so I got the heads installed again.
The new gaskets did not have all the same coolant holes as the old fel pro. Victor reiz/clevite 5746. So after searching the interweb I had 2 options, cut the gasket up and add the holes or run it as is. I chose to leave it as I felt I would bugger it up worse if I attempted to make new holes.

Made a nice home made thread chaser to get the head bolt holes cleaned out.

Re: Restoring 1980 C10 big ten.

Ordered some new parts as well, decided I will be going with a Fitech fuel injection setup and ditching the carb so I ordered up the fuel tank and such.

The plan is to get the wheels on and place the engine and fire it up where it sits to set the timing. Once the timing is set I will sell my Summit carb I bought a LONG time ago and get the EFI setup going. Also Intend to hit the wreckers and look for

A) Serpentine belt setup
B) Electric Fan

Darn project creep.

Re: Restoring 1980 C10 big ten.

Progress has been slow as the kid is in too many sports so I am spending my free time dragging him around the city every day. Did manage to get the engine painted and put mostly back together.

Need to check pushrod length with the new rockers but other than that it's almost time to set it on the frame.
