Sounds like a nice ride! I love those "early" model chevys. I regret selling my 85 K5 Blazer. Here's a pic of her. Now I'm looking for another to play with.

YOU LUCKY BASTARD! :cuss: :cuss: :bluecry:

well, i guess you deserve a break, since you havent drivin your truck in 6 years. it's been 6 days for me, and i'm going nuts.

so, does this parts truck have an engine?? why not gank a couple of pistons out of that?

btw - that parts truck has a nice looking body. you could probably part out the body/frame/ whats left of the drivetrain, and make some $$$.

so lucky that i have to buy 2 new pistons.....

yeah i last drove my truck 6 years ago... i was just die hard workin on the truck recently.... fricken sucks about the motor.. cuz im almost there.. get that d60 under my truck.. maybe gears.... some stupid stuff, 2 doors and paint and she is on the road...


now the motor in the other truck is a 305 that was swapped in....so i dont want those pistons...

that body looks good.... but trust me it isnt... it is in fairly good shape... but im giving it to a junkyard.. they are gonna pick it up for free... since im leaving the 305/turbo350/np203/d-shafts and alot of the other stupid stuff in there.. they need something to take it... i dont wanna pay for them to get it.. the truck is in the sticks!!!!!


my truck always had the name HillBillie Bowtie but i changed it over to RootBreaker... i have been contemplating once the truck goes on the road to go back to that ... and my old cb name used to be thumper.. but too many of them now, then gatekeeper but to many of them too... so i think im going to go with "Jester Jeff" next.... since i am such a jokester :bigthumb:

you gotta admit man, you got a hellofa deal on those axles. you saved $1000, by not paying $1200+ for 1 tons. 2 measley pistons aint gonna compare to that.
I want 1 tons :cuss: :bluecry:

I want 1 tons :cuss: :bluecry:

shame u aint closer.... i have a 14bolt under my pickup trailer :bigthumb:
plus i know of a yard that has about 20 14bolts for like $50 each... :shock:
they are dime a dozen here.. so you would be 1/2 way to 1 ton baby...


p.s. you saw my post about the free 1.5 ton dodge i got too right? d60 front rollin chassis :rotfl:

i checked a few yards down here, and all the 14's are closer to $500. :shock: i'm probably not looking in the right places though.

that'd be alot. i'm sure i'll be able to find one somewhere around here when i'm ready. right now, i'm like you, i just want to get my truck drivable, and get important stuff done like brakes and stuff. still waiting on a throttle body injector pod to come in the mail.
