Re: Matt's 1970 C10 Thread

Won't get a chance to work on truck this weekend, but I did score some new tools.

I found a Lincoln 100SPT Welder on Facebook Marketplace. Guy was selling it for $200 and it looked brand new. Said he used it once to fix a gate. I ended up also buying a 20 gallon air compressor from him as well. I can't wait to get some scrap metal to practice on.

Y'all have a good weekend!

Re: Matt's 1970 C10 Thread

Frame is 90% painted!



All I need to do is flip over and finish the top of the frame rails.

It's going slow, but I'm making baby steps.

Y'all have a good week!

Front end going back together.





I still have a little bit of painting to complete on the passenger side of the frame. Will hopefully be done painting this weekend.

Re: Matt's 1970 C10 Thread

So I stumbled across a good deal for a 4L60E trasnmission. I'm looking into which flexplate I will need and I'm having trouble finding one. The engine is a GEN 1 350 small block. Can you guys point me in the right direction. Motor is internally balanced so flexplate will need to be neutral.

Re: Matt's 1970 C10 Thread

So, I've been pretty busy this weekend.

Picked up some very nice used wheels/tires Friday from a very nice guy. He has a 72 fleet-side and I introduced him to the page. Hopefully he will be setting up an account. I got home Friday and couldn't wait to mount the first wheel.

I woke up this morning and mounted the other three. It is so exciting to have my truck back on wheels!



Next plans are to focus on the engine. Will begin cleaning/overhauling. Will probably do the bare minimum and only change heads, cam, and intake. This is what I'm starting with.



Y'all have a good weekend!
