Bored .030 & Balanced
Forged Flat-tops Clevite (Mfr'd by Probe, IIRC) 224-2519.030
Comp Cams XE284H camshaft
Reconditioned (stock) 781 heads
3/8" pushrods and guideplates
Roller Rockers
New Scat 9000 Crankshaft
Pioneer Rod bolts
HV / HP oil pump & screen
Edelbrock RPM Air Gap
Holley 3310 (750 CFM)
Hedman headers
Lots of chrome

Overhauled the TH400 and installed shift kit
B&M Nitrous Holeshot 2400 RPM stall convertor

I had the engine built with an underdriven 6-71 blower in mind, but that seems like just a dream at this stage of the game.
Suffice it to say that life has been getting in the way ...
I hear you there. I got my 455 weeks ago and haven't gotten a chance to pop a head on the thing. Just collecting dust at this point. Either way, that's a killer deal you got on the 454 and th400.

Cab Corner Splash / Gravel Guards for Step Side Bed

I fabricated some gravel guards for my '65 C10. OEM style are available aftermarket for about $80 a pair. I've got $15.00 in these, and modified the design to hide the reveal on the back of the cab.

Eazy Peazy

For more details and a drawing of these click on the build thread link in my signature line.

Here are some photos:

I used the same "Faux Patina" process that I used on the rest of the truck


As viewed from under the truck. The guards screw to the rear cab braces, in the same holes as the OEM guards.

It has a 350/700R4

All new brakes and lines, it's going into my garage so I can start on the body.
