    Hi everyone, I have a 1968 C50 with a 366 ID in it. I am looking to find out if the firing order is the basic Chevy big block firing order. Or if it is different due to the crank spinning clock wise and the cam spinning counter clockwise. Two gears. Nothing inbetween on the front of the block...

    I have seen a few Elgin cams mentioned here, If I can't put a GM roller cam/lifters in my 1995 Yukon 5.7 L05 TBI block, I am curious which one of the following three would be the best from idle to 3,000 RPM, (the zone I drive/tow with my Yukon) CAM# W/1.5 LIFT @.050 Opens Closes...

    I have a box off of what I think is an '85 chevy truck that I'm using as a replacement on my 1978 GMC. Will the tailgate from my '78 fit in the new box? I've heard there are differences but will these affect it. I will be using the latches and hinges from the '78. Thanks in advance for any advice.

    Hi, I would like to change the ball bearings in my 57 3100 truck to roller bearings. The truck was converted to 5 lug in the past. It appears that the drum-hub is from a early 50s chevy car. Does anyone know if the truck bearings will fit the car hubs? Or will the car bearings fit the truck...

    This pickup has served us well over the years, and actually was the first pickup my dad ever owned. That was one of the inspirations for restoring it. Now he and I are restoring it and souping the engine up a bit. Well, actually replacing the engine with a souped up L05 block (only the L05...

I've been...

    I have a 77 c10 that I have redone over the past year. Now it looks great but it still has the old low compression 350. I daily drive it, and I am in highschool so I can't afford to tear it down and do a complete rebuild. What would you suggest? I have been thinking that a set of heads, new cam...

    I have a 383 in my K2500 that's using TPI right now. Originally, I was going to turbo it, but I ended up having to buy another vehicle bc my daily died (13k+ out of pocket cash gone T_T). So instead I want to just carb it, and change out the small compu cam. I have been reading a bit on this...

    Hello Rodders Few weeks ago I have bought a good old Chevy truck to start a new adventure. Decided to build it into a street rod piece by piece. Now first of all I'd like to mention, my knowledge about Chevy's in common is low. About engine and tranny's even lower. So that's why I signed up...

    Hello All! So now that I found a way to fit the truck in my garage (goodbye extended bed), I have begun the tear-down. I have removed the front body and then I hit a snag. I cannot for the life of me get the steering pulled from this truck!!! It is seized beyond belief and I have run out of...

    Can I use a 2 or 3 row aluminum performance honda radiator to keep my 351w cool. It's a stock engine without ac. The problem is space restrictions with this international know I am building. It's just a real bummer I can't use a normal radiator if I do that I have to chop the fenders and hood...

    I am going through this problem, this now makes the second time that I have had this happen, that when I go to start my truck, it will not roar to life but crank and crank. The engine keeps flooding just from trying to start it, it does this by me not touching the gas pedal :confused:. And I...
