Project 68 k10 LWB..aka "The Hulk"

Hello everyone.
I picked up a 68 k10 for my youngest son he called it the hulk. So I thought I would try my hand at an official build thread.
Hopefully works out.
This picture is the first picture I took of it on the way home.

Re: Project 68 k10 LWB..aka "The Hulk"

It has the original 307 with a SM465 the was installed in the 80's I was told. It has the original Rockwell t221 (I think). No power anything. Basicly base model. It's was a rock quarry truck up north in California.

On the way through red bluff from picking it up. I was looking on Craigslist and found a 1973 front axle complete so I picked it up also.

I didn't get any pictures of it before I started tearing into it. It was my first time rebuilding a complete front end. Replaced everything I could on it that even looked suspect. So I sould not have any problems with it.

Re: Project 68 k10 LWB..aka "The Hulk"

Here are the new front hubs and rotors painted up with high heat paint. Not sure if they will last but thought why not try it.

Re: Project 68 k10 LWB..aka "The Hulk"

I picked up a np241 transfer case from a 1990 chevy suburban. It has the passenger side drop with an electric speed sensor. I am going to install a 2008 ly2 with a 4L60e (ls swap). I rebuilt the TC but didn't have a camera with me as I was doing it.

Re: Project 68 k10 LWB..aka "The Hulk"

I'm in looks like a cool build. I hope your son is not into 4 wheeling if he is you will find your self repairing some of the parts, I was hard on my truck when I bought my first wheeler at 17 broke just about every thing twice until I installed 1 ton running gear.

Re: Project 68 k10 LWB..aka "The Hulk"

Thanks for the comment.
The plan for me with the truck build and him working on it is if he spends his time on it he should take care of it. If he breaks it he will have to fix it and pay for it.
Things break as I have done it myself many times. The education was having to repair things because I made a bad decision.... We are not getting to crazy just going for reliablity.

Re: Project 68 k10 LWB..aka "The Hulk"

Disassembled everything off the motor and pulled the valve cover. Looks pretty clean. The motor said to have 83k on it.

Re: Project 68 k10 LWB..aka "The Hulk"

The engine look good for 83K the one I got for my truck was worse than that. the P.O. had a turbo on it and ran it hot and crack ring grooves on 2 pistons. I ended up replacing all my pistons.

Re: Project 68 k10 LWB..aka "The Hulk"

Can anyone tell me what this is? I don't remember seeing this on the last LS swap I did? Is this factory in 2008? Or has the motor been worked on at some point?
