Re: 1966 C1434 SWB Custom Cab

from post 139 " but the speedometer is a different story. The 4L60e uses an electric speedo when these old trucks use a mechanical one. It's ok I'll just use my gps for speed when traveling"

Dakota digital makes a elec to cable conversion box so you can keep your stock speedo....I used one in my 81 and it works great...a little spendy but im happy....

Talking Re: 1966 C1434 SWB Custom Cab

Electric fan is in place and it works awesome. I also fabricated the top radiator surround piece that fills the gap between the core support top rail and the radiator top tank. Pictures are kind of terrible.

Re: 1966 C1434 SWB Custom Cab

Added a check engine light just in case something is wrong the computer can let me know. I used the factory over speed lamp location for the MIL (check engine light). I just got a pigtail for a 194 bulb at O’Reilys. Hook the brown wire to the ignition lug on the back of the tach (pink wire). Hooked the black to the computer red connector pin 46 which is the MIL control. Works perfect. And I have a clean bill of health I guess because the light turns off as soon as the engine fires up

Re: 1966 C1434 SWB Custom Cab

I cannot figure out for the life of me how to add videos so here the Noob tube link.

Electric fan drowns out the sound of the engine idle. I’m impressed it runs ice cold even in 105 deg Texas heat.
