STAIDL39 Dump Truck is a 68 . . . sorry, my bad. And the kid washing them both is my Son who will be driving the 65.

STAIDL39 Those are very nice!! I'm over on the west side of Wisconsin

RWENUTS Sounds like you're on the right track!
It'll be a learning thang!!
Research!! Research!!
Here's a pic of my 2 previous trucks. Both sold!!
Green 44,000 mile 65. Previous one owner Oregon truck.
And my 67 GMC. 67,000 miles. Fairly rare. Was 99th truck built in 67.
Got a hankerin' to build a hot rod so sold them.
What part of the world do you live in?
03-20-2013 09:07 AM
STAIDL39 Oh and I appreciate all of that! He's just as excited to drive it as I am once again. if it gets old for him . . . .then I'll drive it around. I did once before for a whole weekend before I pulled the old motor out to put in a 1967 30 series I also have. (2nd work truck) The 65 is solid. Frame and body. Doors seal great and interior is good. Either way it'll run, just need to get over the hump of identication. lol

RWENUTS Here's some thoughts!
I ask about the game plan cause there's a few things to consider now.
Power steering and brakes aren't a bolt on for a 65. If you keep the six banger then power steering brackets are hard to come by and expensive. And you need an adaptor to bolt the steering gear to the frame. Power brakes need another adaptor and a kit to install the brakes to your front end.
I guess I'm saying you gotta plan way ahead.
I understand your desire to have the boy learn to drive like you did but several times I've seen a dad build a vehicle for one of his kids and then the truck never gets used. There's a big difference between when you learned to drive and modern day kids driving expectations. He might not want an old truck to drive!
He might prefer all the modern conveniences! You could be throwing a lot of money away.
It might be your dream and not his!
Just trying to save you a lot of frustration!
Just some of my random thoughts!
Not intended to offend.
Just freindly advice!!

That kind of game plan!
Just wondering!!

My avitar is the truck I have that I want running for my boy. I would like to keep it stock as of right now. Just getting it running is the main plan. I already have a customer that we're going to barter with one another who does body work, so that is covered. Power steering and power brakes . . . maybe? I guess that all depends on the cost as of now. I want my boy to be able to drive a stick going into getting his license like how I was taught at his age with my Dad's 1956 Chevy Pick-up (that was a BLAST btw).

I'm just at a stand still since Monday on identifing this motor. it's frustrating cuz there aren't a lot of people around my area who can help out. They've all become to reliant on the computer system and do not know old school tricks of the trade like the true blue collar anthusiasts did back in the day.

I have taken almost every pic I can of what I have, I believe.

If there is anything else I can do, I'm more than willing to do so apart from actually sending it somewhere that'll cost me a arm and a leg.

The other raised cast codes you posted appear to be one number short of what I see in the list of codes, you show six, most of the others are seven digits. I just think there are other numbers you may not have found, possibly in the bell housing area.


I am posting three pics now labeled A,B and C. they are of each side of the bell housing area. No new numbers to be seen. Thinking that the "stamped" set are legit?
