Re: 64' K10 Project Long Bed

More pictures on the extra 292 engine, looked at the bottom end, good and bad news. The bearing looked really good for wear and no debris going through them. The pan and oil pickup tube were full of sludge, the pan maybe had two inches of sludge in the bottom. The amount of sludge in the pan does not match the condition of the rest of the engine. Not sure why so much sludge in the pan only, bad oil, lots of idling?

Re: 64' K10 Project Long Bed

some more pictures of the extra trans and bell housing out of the 65 ambulance. The bell housing was at least partially painted the engine color.

Re: 64' K10 Project Long Bed

That's what happens when the oil never gets changed. I bought my first 1964 C10 in 1980 from the original owner with a rod knocking it looked just like that when I pulled apart. The owner said he had never changed the oil just added Raylube when it was low. Original oil filter ( AC) was plugged solid. Raylube was a reclaimed oil that cost 20 cents a quart.

Re: 64' K10 Project Long Bed

Cruzn,

I plan to take motor apart and check/clean it because of all the sludge, along with a little rust on the edge of the cam lobes, it is like little crystals of rust on the edge. Hopefully it can be a std bore engine. Ring seal is a big thing for me, lots of efficiency to be had.

Note: bell housing is hydraulic, even though it is from 1965, vehicle was a military 1 or 2 ton chassis. Also trans had the emergency brake on the end of it.

Re: 64' K10 Project Long Bed

This 1965', 292 engines plan has changed, originally was going to be used as spare parts. Person who sold to me said it was a low mileage engine. After removal of cylinder head, feeling good, no ridge at top of cylinder . Turned engine over and removed oil pan , their is two inches of semi-hard sludge in sump, and pick-up tube covered too. Decision now is to take apart and bake block to remove residuals from 1964 period oils. Also having machine shop map cylinder wall, to see if I can just hone and use new rings.

My downfall is Leo Santucci's book "Chevrolet Inline Six-Cylinder Power Manual" second edition, just a little change here and their.

Re: 64' K10 Project Long Bed

more trans pics, this engine, trans, bell housing is out of a 1965, 1 or 2 ton ambulance, two wheel drive, I think flat nose. That is why it has the hydraulic clutch set up.
Bell housing has same part number as early trucks w/ hydraulic clutch, and 1965 build date code.

Re: 64' K10 Project Long Bed

Long term goal is to remove the frame, clean it and paint and move up from their. Currently working on finding a few parts that are missing and making sure everything is working before starting on frame. The front clip is complete, so it is removed and original conditions are being recorded. Plan is to use original bolts/fasteners as much as possible. The following pictures are some of the front clip weather stripping. They are likely not organized well but hope they help report how/where weather stripping was installed.

Picture of the fasteners used to attach the fender/inner fender to front core support. The head markings are typical of GM bolts.

Re: 64' K10 Project Long Bed

Owen,

Thanks for the encouragement. Note sure if you have seen this picture from Gilmore St. Fairbanks, of our I think 1963 truck, probably around 1968. That bump in the snow in front of the truck is a 1960 Corvette. It was kind of hard to drive on the ice covered roads back then. Not sure how it is now, but back then we would have about a foot of ice built up on the streets from the ice fog each night.

Re: 64' K10 Project Long Bed

I have been sidelined for a while, and plan to bring truck out of storage and back home this week. First step will be to take drive train out and check for any needed repairs. Jointly will be checking frame for extra holes that need welded up. Sure that I will be needing help on deciding what holes are original.

Photo of engine removed previously.

Hope to get parts dipped and frame suspension painted by end of year.

Re: 64' K10 Project Long Bed

Got the truck back from storage today, and started spraying bolts for removal. Will be taking lots of notes and pictures before removing stuff.
Planning to replace front axle, trying to decide which to use per CaptainFabs two recommendations. Dana 44 from 71 to 79 or 10 bolt from 1980 to 91. This will be only drive line change for now, if the rest all checks out to be ok. Considering front axle change for braking, turning radious, and ease of adding power steering to K10 truck.

Photo of original spring/axle.
