Re: My 71 K20 Cummins swap

I got it back on the road in March of 2021 and have put over 5000 miles on it with no problems so far. I still have things I want/need to do.... I never did wire up the grid heaters, but I always park in heated garage. I would like to have a full set of gauges..... pump has modified fuel plate and bigger injectors.... would like to be able to keep tabs on things.

My cab needs rockers replace on right side... been reading up on that trying to get the courage up to tackle that job.

I have to say I am quite pleased with the Cummins swap, the power is amazing and fuel mileage is better than any gasser. I have to say if you're going to do this, do your research and do it right the first time because it's a lot of work!!
I wouldn't want to do it over because I cut corners and didn't do it right the 1st time.
