Newbie with a 65 Chevy

I am in the process of building a 65 from the ground up. I am new at this so I will have a lot of questions. I bought a wrecked 2000 Silverado with a 5.3 and 4l60e to put in it. I will try to post some pics.

Re: Newbie with a 65 Chevy

I was installing 5.3 and trans to test fit and had problems. I got adapter plates for stock mount location but when I was putting it in found out I have 6 cylinder perches. Waiting on v8 perches now. My next install will be fuel tank. What tank is everyone using? I want to mount it in rear between frame.

Re: Newbie with a 65 Chevy

Welcome. For your first build thread, those first 3 pics have to be the best yet!

I haven't swapped mine yet, but if you look in the FAQ section near the top of the page, you will find tank options. Also use the search window on the right side of the page... " tank " should bring up a ton of info, good luck

Re: Newbie with a 65 Chevy

You can also use tube pearch mounts, from CPP. Good product, thats what we used on our 61 with a 1st gen 350.

Re: Newbie with a 65 Chevy

Thanks for the warm welcome. I am sure I will have a lot of questions. I had to take the week off for my new grand baby. This is my first so I might not have any new updates for a week or two. Trying to soak her all in while I can. But I will keep yall updated on the build.

Re: Newbie with a 65 Chevy

I stopped by Mr Bryds and picked up my v8 motor perches on my way to Dallas to see my grand baby. He has a shop at bald knob with lots of parts mostly for 67-72. Maybe I will have more up dates next week.

Re: Newbie with a 65 Chevy

I have been looking at a new fuel tank from Boyd's. They are running a special over the holidays until Dec 2 10% off and free shipping. What does everyone think of that tank?

Re: Newbie with a 65 Chevy

Man that's a good looking tank! Are you using a carb or fuel injection on your truck?
