1965 C20 Dump truck

This is a 1965 c10 that my Uncle built into a c20 dump truck.
The cab and frame is all that is original (the doors,hood and every thing else is
from other trucks)

My Dad got it from my Uncle some time around early 2001 and then gave it to my brother a short time later. Now I have it.

The truck has been used for a farm truck off and on since we got it.
It was parked from 2012 until I got it going some time last year.

292 straight 6 with 4 speed on the floor.

Long list of things I plan on and need to do to it in the near future (including fixing the non working dump bed) So stay tuned!

Re: 1965 C20 Dump truck

The plan is for now to just get it running real good and then maybe later on I'll add some mods to it.

I do like what you did to yours.

Nice! Well maybe when I get my 64 GMC up here we'll have to go cruising around.

Re: 1965 C20 Dump truck

My Uncle all so put this on the truck. I really cant say that I dislike it but I don't think that I would have put one in.

The latch is half shot so I never really open it.

Re: 1965 C20 Dump truck

All so my Uncles work:

Straight pipe split pipes dumped under the cab.

I really like the sound but it gets real loud in the cab when driving with a heavy load or in any gear over 2nd when driving up a hill.

A different setup may be coming in the future.

By the way, the 2nd shift lever on the floor is to engage the hydraulic pump for the dump bed.

Re: 1965 C20 Dump truck

I know its not the right carb for the engine but there was one just like this on it when we got it.(This one is off my 76 c10)

this carb is working for now but it needs to be rebuilt or replaced before I can get the truck on the road.

So here is my question: Can I use this carb on this engine or do I need to get the original one for it.

All so the vac. advance is not hooked up, not shore if I can with this carb I have now.

Some input would be welcome.

Re: 1965 C20 Dump truck

So after reading my last post today I realize that I may need to clarify a few things.

I have 2 carburetors, both are the same.
One came with the truck when we got it.
The 2nd one came off the engine in a 76 c10.

I know that these carbs are not the original kind for my engine.

I know the rockchester B is the original carb for these engines.

Obviously the engine runs with this carb My Uncle drove the truck on the road with one.

So my question is:
Has anybody else used this type of carb on these engines.
And is there any advantage or disadvantage of using these over the rockchester B.

I know this is most likely a stab in the dark but just thought I'd ask.

Thanks, and happy new year!

Re: 1965 C20 Dump truck

So here is a short list of things I have done to the truck in the past 2 years.

Replaced a valve lifter & push rod on the engine.
Replaced the left rear wheel cylinder.
Installed new amp,oil pressure and water temp gauges. (smoked old ammeter)(that's another story)
Replaced a bunch of wiring.
Cleaned out mouse nest in heater blower housing.
Started installing new wood on the truck bed.(Not finished)

I'm sure I'm forgetting something but that's most of it.

Re: 1965 C20 Dump truck

So now here is the list of things I want to hopefully do to the truck this year.(2019)

Finish rebuilding the truck bed.
Fix a slight valve tap in the engine.(most likely just needs adjustment)
Install new (better) choke cable.
Replace or rebuild carburetor.
Fix the gas gauge.
Replace windshield wiper arms & wipers.
Install new door seals.

Possibly fix the dump bed.(no guarantees)
Possibly get the truck on the road.(no guarantees)

I'm most likely forgetting something but you get the idea.

Re: 1965 C20 Dump truck

Can't wait to see what all you do with it, hard to tell in pics but is it still 6 lug up front? I know you had said he converted it to a c20 and can see rear hubs but wasnt sure if he switched front out too or not. If not do you plan to make it 8 lug all around and any plans on wheel-tire combo you might be going with?

Side note.. I really wish GMC would have used same dash as the chevy's, I like the symmetrical design they have in both the double bump dash and your style.

Re: 1965 C20 Dump truck

Yep it's got 8 lugs all the way around.
Not really sure about the wheels yet I kinda like the look of the mud tires on the back but I don't know if I will keep it that way.

Yea nothing really wrong with the gmc dash but I kinda like the chevy dash a little bit more.

I plan on getting more done once the winter is over and the weather starts warming up.
I don't have a shop and I hate working in the rain LOL!

I have some pictures of when I was rebuilding the bed I have been meaning to post on here sometime.

I will all so try to explain whats wrong with the dump bed sometime to.

Re: 1965 C20 Dump truck

Well the other day we had some good weather so I decided to take off the valve cover to adjust the valves.
That's when I ran into some problems.
So my problem is I have coolant leaking up through one of the valve cover bolt holes in the head.

Even with the bolt screwed in coolant is still leaking past the bolt threads
and getting ware it shouldn't be.... Not good.

I think I can take care of the problem one way or another but I just wanted to ask if anybody else has had this problem before.

Re: 1965 C20 Dump truck

Not sure if this would work or not, but have you tried using some sort of thread sealant? I used Permatex thread sealant on my engine when I had some bolts that needed sealing and it has worked out great for me. Also used the stuff on my Dakota and have not had any issues with the sealant in just over 7000 miles

Re: 1965 C20 Dump truck

I have not used actual thread sealant but I have used some gasket maker around ware the
valve cover seals and that did not really work but sealing the actual bolt threads might work.

I may have to try it.

Thanks for the suggestion!
