Re: Project 67 DRGNWGN - 67 Burban!!

thanks for the pictures. I measured from that middle chunk where the hood closes (on the hood) and from there up to the skin and akin braces there is about 3" in most areas. my brackets are about 2 3/4 tall. so I'm going to be cutting it close! guess we'll see when I get the fenders ok and the hood back on


did you ever measure from the core support to the top of brackets with the spacers? wondering if they were close to what mine are..

My spacer was 2 1/4 " is all. My radiator cap was the first thing to hit.

Re: Project 67 DRGNWGN - 67 Burban!!

ouch I'm probably going to run into some issues then. from the core support to the top of the radiator is about 1.5" so I'm thinking if I do run into interference, I will have to make some new top brackets. these are kinda bulky anyways. I'm sure I can get back about an inch if I reshape them.

In the second picture you can see I had plenty of room to tip the radiator back and mount at an angle allowing to shut the hood. I hope that helps.
Tilting the radiator is a great idea!

That was my best option even though I could not use my shroud anymore I had no cooling issues.

Re: Project 67 DRGNWGN - 67 Burban!!

shifted my attention back to the rear for now...trying to get some square tubing ordered for when i get the rear gas tank and floor together... and some sheet metal to get to mounting the front fender wells to the fenders.

so for now i just got the anti squat brackets in...i was seriously dreading this and putting it off. after trying to do with it a grinder and hand punch....i ordered an air hammer and it made it a breeze. chiseled the heads off and used the punch attatchment to drive it right out.

Re: Project 67 DRGNWGN - 67 Burban!!

also got hitched and went on a cruise with the kiddos.....found this nice truck at the venue so i had to take a pic with it.

getting into more independent contracts with my dump truck business so working on the truck might come a little slower than it has been until that picks up

Hey, Congratulations!

Like me, you will just have to work on it when you can. A little here, a little there and you will be surprised how quick little projects get done.

Re: Project 67 DRGNWGN - 67 Burban!!

so i have the 2 fuel rail fittings on the motor (return style). i will be running the stock filter. from my research the stock filter has 16mmx1.5 threads (correct me if im wrong). if im right i have the fittings in the cart ready to order. im guessing the hose route goes like this - big line on the fuel rail is the feed line, that goes to the filter on the frame, then to the big feed line on the sending unit. smaller line on the rail is the return, which runs all the way to the small line on the sending unit. my issue is this, i have no idea what size an -6 adapters i need for the sending unit. im attatching some and a part number to help...

Re: Project 67 DRGNWGN - 67 Burban!!

this is the sending unit.. Dorman 692-056 which is listed for an 88 chevy truck (suburban). the big line on the left looks like it runs to the fuel tube that has the fuel cap. 2nd line (big line) is the feed line that runs to the fuel filter, then to big line on the fuel rail. 3rd line is the return line, small fuel line on the rail runs to this. 4th line on the end is just a vent hose?

I can't help on that. I have never used that style of unit. You may have to post the question over on the LSx Swaps forum....

Re: Project 67 DRGNWGN - 67 Burban!!

I believe that the last vent line should go to the fuel evap system in the OE application and through the charcoal canister it would vent the tank. This would be in a system with an unvented gas cap.

The large vent is used to vent the tank during fill up.

You may want to look at some later model Burbans and investigate how they vent their fuel tanks. Maybe you will be able to incorporate some of those components in your truck and enjoy the benefits of a unvented fuel cap.

Keep up the good work.

Re: Project 67 DRGNWGN - 67 Burban!!

got a little progress over the last week. got all my fuel fittings in and will be hopefully getting the fuel lines run this week if i get a chance. got the tank in and also cleaned up the frame and rear end. also ordered mostly everything to get the rear back in.... new bags, panhard bar, weld in shock mounts, and bag spacers. plan is to re weld the top mounts instead of cutting and lowering them. hopefully the bag spacer will work and give me some of my lift i was missing.
