Re: 82 K-30 Crew Cab Short Bed

What axle would be a good suggestion for it?

My preference is a Dana 80. A Dana 70 will last a little while but the 80 is where it's at IMO.

Re: 82 K-30 Crew Cab Short Bed

Thanks man. So I got some more pictures of the engine sent to me although since my internet connection in the desert sucks it may be hard for me to get them on here

Re: 82 K-30 Crew Cab Short Bed

Alright so I have a source for a nv4500 and transfer case out of a 1999 Dodge Ram 2500 v10. It is the exact transmission I need. Real good deal and the whole kit worked fine with the engine threw a rod. Only downside is I am in Iraq still until January so picking this up isn't an option until then. So if anyone who lives around Denton, Texas would like to do a great favor for me let me know. I will PayPal the guy the money and pick it up when I get back. Got a case of your favorite drink in it for you.

My uncle lives in Leander. If that's close, I could see if he could go get it for you.

Re: 82 K-30 Crew Cab Short Bed

Leander is still a good drive from Denton. I have a friend that is willing to make the trek from Houston to get it. So that might happen after the 1st of the month. We will see how it goes.

Once I get the transmission all I will need is the cross member and a good clean and paint on the engine. Then start the swap.

Re: 82 K-30 Crew Cab Short Bed

Alright so it has been some time since I last updated this thread. I haven't really done anything with the truck until recently. I was browsing the cummins forums last week and found all the parts I need to put a P-Pump on my engine. Since the Cummins I bought had the injection pump replaced with a not so great CAV pump I needed a new injection pump.

Then not 2 days later I come across a Borg Warner 64/68/14 turbo for it. Should spool up nicely and hopefully with everything I have planned push me right around 500hp. I will probably add a second turbo later to have a wicked set of compounds. Time will tell.

As of right now I have plans to get a Hamilton Cam for it as well as some SDX 5x.016 injectors. Those injectors will be a tad big for the turbo I have now but will allow me to put twins on later. The pump will get some mods. A 4k governor spring and a fuel plate. Nothing extremely fancy.

I am ordering the parts now and when I get back from Kuwait in June I will start to tear the engine down and rebuild it. Once it is ready the 454 will come out and the Cummins will go in. Still need a transmission for it but that shouldn't be hard to find.

Well here are some pictures of the pump and turbo.

Re: 82 K-30 Crew Cab Short Bed

I haven't really ordered to much more. I did place the order for the injectors. I went with Low Budget Diesel injectors. The 5x.014 size. I don't plan on doing to much more to the engine besides my initial plans so that size should work fine. I did order some ARP head studs, 60# valve springs, a 4,000rpm governor spring kit, and a fuel plate for the pump.

As for what is left on my list of parts to get.
-Hamilton Cam 188/210 cam.
-24v Tappets
-Transmission and clutch
-Cross member
-AirDog (Possible)

Hopefully I have all the parts ordered in the next month or two and can have every thing ready to me installed on the engine when I get home.

I ended up selling it to a guy in northern Oklahoma last year. I ran out of time and money to finish it and couldn't see it sitting around. The 454 had problems and was on its last leg when I sold it.

Thanks. It was originally my truck and I'm just curios what happened to it.
