85 K10 Scotsdale A Family Tradition

Well I finally aquire my Grandfather's Truck from my Father and it is time to start the slow rebuild. I am figuring this build will have a two year completion date. So what are the plans you might ask? First the wheels will be podercoated black or dark grew or pewter, and anything that would have been chrome will be painted the same color. All the side trim will be removed. 31 inch tires all the way around to fill out those wheel wells. Front and rear bumbers replaced with some beefy looking after market design. Not going to replace the 305 but I am going to add a 4 barrel instead of rebuilding the 2 barrel. Going to dual out the exhaust, for a low rumble but not one that will keep the neighbors up or more importantly the wife when I come home from night shift. The body is going to get a rich burgundy with a black pearl coat finish. Photo to follow once I find somewhere to link them from.

Cool old truck, I dig those factory wagon wheels with the stock center caps.

Your 305 came with a 2Bbl carb?

Here's your pic so that people dont have to click the link to go see the truck.

As far as I know my grandfather never changed anything out on the truck and I know my dad didn't. Thinks for posting the pic.

Re: 85 K10 Scotsdale A Family Tradition

Well life has been crazy at the house since I got the truck and I have not had a chance to get out and mess with it much. I have bought a new LED light to work under the hood, took 6 years of grime off the seat, and got everything off and looked at the carburetor. Seat cleaned up real good and the foam is still good so I probably won't mess with it. The carburetor is not a 2 barrel as i was told it was it is a Quadrojet 4 barrel. However, it is going to be replaced. It has bailing wire holding onside together and all the primaries and secondaries are not moving as they should. Debating on buying another quadrojet or if I will just go with an edlebrock or holly 500cfm. I will post pics tomorrow.

Re: 85 K10 Scotsdale A Family Tradition

Okay so after many months finally getting to work on the Scotsdale. Pulled the Carb because it is the first culprit I know of that is a problem. It is indeed a Rochester 4 Barrel Quadrajet. Going to get a rebuild kit and see how my luck goes with rebuilding it myself. If I am successful I will have saved $200-$300 dollars. If not then I am only out $50. I am will to take the chance then I can also say I rebuilt it myself. Ordering new fuel transfer switch for the Saddlebag gas tanks. I also plan on dropping the gas tanks this week to see what kind of shape they are in. I will be stripping off the smog pump and EGR valve and removing all Vacuum lines that are not needed. I don't have to worry about inspections so just less to worry about breaking down.
