Re: '69K10, Build/Help

transmission coolant lines run and all wiring is complete. I want to tape it up and tuck it away SO badly, just not gonna till its running and tested completely.

Had an issue with the pwr steering pump pulley not lining up but swapped out brackets and that fixed the issue. So belts are installed and things are slowly moving forward.

Next will be trying to get radiator hoses, I think I can carry my old top hose in cause I just need one that is about 2" longer. Might need to build or get a custom one for the bottom, hopefully its not too hard to find.

ALSO, gonna go to a "hot rod" shop to get help with my valve covers because: they don't have a port that is big enough for a decent breather. Both covers are the same, center bolts with an oil fill and a 15/16" hole for a PCV valve, and I need help with some decent plug wire brackets, all the ones I see use the edge bolt locations for valve cover bolts to bolt down. I'd like to get a set of brackets and plug wires that are the proper length.

This link is to Tylor wires. Note sure if you want to make your own of buy one of their custom fit sets. I bought 8MM SBC under the header style for my C10 with Ram horns and they fit great. There charts list the length of each wire. Find the PN then buy from your favorite retailer.

they are Sanderson CC10 158.

I can't really say how they will work yet for obvious reasons, but they seem to fit nicely. My plan is to connect the next pipe downstream from the header and run it to past the bottom of the cab. then use another bolt connection from there to mufflers and tail pipes. After (hopefully) getting the truck running for a few weeks, take the headers and first section of pipe in to a coater and get them ceramic coated.

thats my plan anyway, TBD if it works out........

Thanks for the info. I've bought side mount brackets, vertical holders and a set of wires from taylor. should have them installed next week.

It was great help, thank-you again.
