Roy, I'm a helper right now in the chemical plants and I do turnarounds with my father in law and we travel. I'll be leaving next week for Louisiana and that's where I'm going to be for 2.5 months.
Don't worry, I hardly ever check in as well. But my truck and I still exist!

Might be moving across the country though so I don't know what the fate of the truck will be.

Re: 1977 Chevy C10 known as SharkBite

Well fellas this might be one of few updates for a nice while.

I do have a couple of items I have going into consideration right now. Budget will be limited as you guys know do to the wedding.

I would like to have my truck in attendance at my wedding if I'm able to do it, so a couple products I'm going to buy while I'm on my little journey with work I'm going to buy me a lowering kit and leave bagging the truck till later in life and maybe a project to do with my kid. So going to go after a 4-4.5/6 drop also going to try to get a bed, and if money is okay going to try and get it all painted red.

So please guys cross you fingers for me as I attempt this journey, again like I said I would like to have it ready for my wedding and have it there with me if possible.

I also have started to consider doing away with my good ole faithful chevy 350 and looking into an ls1 with some mods, or throw a ls3 waiting to see prices before I want to make the decision.

Congrats on the kid! I like how you wanna lower it, before so I recomend new tie rods and sleeves, maybe get it realigned, LS3?! I'd say look into the 6.0, loads cheaper, wanna keep it carbed get the LS1-4.8/5.3/6.0 edelbrock intake and msd ignition contoller pack from summit for $850, the controller plugs right in. 6.0 is an option if your looking for any power, 325 hp, 9.5:1 comp on aluminum heads. Cheaper to buy but one piece of advise when swapping one in, get rid of the manifolds and egr cause they don't clear the frame. Stick an ls6 cam in and put some ls6 aka yellow springs in and your good to go for 420 hp brute power plant.

Re: 1977 Chevy C10 known as SharkBite

What's up fellas!!! Finally back home for a couple of weeks. Picked up an angle grinder so over the weeks I'm really going to begin to start cleaning up the frame and make it look pretty.

Just wanted to let y'all know I'm back home and what's on my agenda.

Hope all is well with everyone and the projects are going good.

Yeah I think my truck will probably have at least another year. As far as a motor that won't be happening soon probably later on in the future.

Looks like it's a good start. Where did you pick up the angle grinder?

Re: 1977 Chevy C10 known as SharkBite

Looks like I'm going to need some help once again if y'all can. Finally took out the truck for some drive time today sounded great at idle but when I started driving it, it was miserable. Whenever I would take off without putting my foot really in the throttle it was stumbling but if I just laid my foot into it, it stumbled and went balls to the walls any ideas?

Re: 1977 Chevy C10 known as SharkBite

On first impressions of what you say it's doing, it sounds like a vacuum leak. I had a hesitation like that on my first car. It was a 1958 Chevy Biscayne, with a 283 and a quadrajet. The carb gasket had a leak, which turned out to be an intake manifold problem not allowing the gasket to seal. Since you've got the new edelbrock intake on it, the intake should be fine. you may want to go get a new carb base gasket and try that. I'm not 100% on that, but it's a cheap start.

I can't remember and I'm in a bit of a hurry to go back through your thread, so help me out... did you ever do anything with your distributor, other than timing? What is it, points, HEI, etc? Did you replace any parts in it?

Re: 1977 Chevy C10 known as SharkBite

Well haven't really done much more work to the truck, but thanks to a new friend and forum member Chef Cy he found a bed and sent it to me and so I text the guy he wanted 100 talked him to 60 so got a good score!

Also did some little free simple upgrades on my car so here's pics of everything.

60 is an amazing deal. Around my location anyway. I sold a near perfect bed for $500. Good deal man.

Re: 1977 Chevy C10 known as SharkBite

What's up fellas?? I hope everyone's projects are going good and getting done. Here's my little check in, haven't done much to the truck at all really trying to focus on my wedding.

I called an engine shop near my house, looking that sometime in the future get the trucks 350 to a 383 stroker. I have also kind of decided another possible direction on the truck y'all might hate me for it but I think it looks badass.

If you have heard of a show called roadkill on youtube, in there latest episode they turned there 73 stepside into the ultimate dual sport and made it into a baja truck which inspired me to do that to my truck. I want to get it done right, but make it a true dual sport where I can take it to sand dunes/mudd have fun, and then if I feel like it throw some street tires take it into town. Just been tossing around the idea not set but I think it would look awesome.

Getting ready to go back to work, probably won't be on much rest of the year but I will try to stop in and check on everyone. Again hope everyone's projects are coming along great and wish y'all the best!!

Re: 1977 Chevy C10 known as SharkBite

I'm still alive and breathing guys, update on the truck is honestly nothing. I haven't stopped working since last September, so I haven't had any time to wrench on the truck just been able to crank him up and let him run for a little while.
