Dusten Posted April 23 Report Share Posted April 23 I'm on a few of the fb groups, but I'm old and prefer forums. To me they're easier to track and search. Yesterday I picked up a 1977 king cab 620. I'm still working on figuring out exactly what I have. Her bones are good. She starts stops and doesn't over heat. The rust is minimal. This is good because I can focus on the things I want to fiddle with versus the things I have to fiddle with Things I know for sure Refreshed L20b with a 32/36 Weber. Msd ignition and 6al box. Z car 5 speed Small lower block in rear Z car steering wheel and seats 78 dash wiring and dash. Cheap repaint that is hiding some rust. Old man wheels with 205/75 and 215/70 tires. All the steering is new. Brakes are new. 79 tailgate Things I plan to address quickly. Remove rear bumper. Fabricate bracket for plate. Bleed clutch. The trans is notchier than id expect and the clutch and all hydraulics are new. So I suspect there's air in the line. It doesn't take much. Address wiring through out the truck. The dash is full of LED's that flicker, the wiring at the back of the truck is sketchy looking, there's a half assed stereo install and a parasitic draw somewhere. Install an actual working stereo. Install a USB charging port where the missing lighter is. Remove the msd and replace it with OEM electronic ignition. Tune on the carb a bit. It has a slight bog. Install a small tach(already ordered) Disc brakes up front at a minimum. I know kits are few and far between but I'll source something. Rear view mirror is broken. Replace. Get some side mirrors I can actually see out of 16" steelies with a 215/235 tire set but keep them about 26" tall. Lower truck after wheels and tires to look good and avoid rubbing. Install a horn cap and fix the horn. I'll probably come up with more as I go through the truck. I'll upload images later. Quote Link to comment
