Re: 72 k20

Nice new bumper! I'm robbing the one off my wife's burb for my Ochre K20 turd. LOL

Nice line up too. Most of my stuff doesn't run as well. Seems to be a trend? My wife says it's only me. LOL

Thanks everyone canít wait for the brackets to come in so I can get that chrome mounted...


Ohh no, Ryan, not only you. 2 of my 4 donít run well actually 3 of the 4 right now. The transmission output seal on the Ď98 is leaking fluid into the transfer case and I havenít been motivated enough to fix it yet. Better get on that before my brother gets it. My K20 is the trooper, lately Iíve been driving it a lot more than Hagerty really appreciates. Iím about 20,000 miles away from a new company truck (6 months) when I get the new company truck Iím going to buy my current company truck to replace the Ď98. Nice Easy way to get a good late model truck for $10K-ish at about 115-120,000 miles.

Finally got my precision windshield rubber in today. Gonna try and polish the trim soon, before I take it apart and replace the rubber. More to come on that.

Re: 72 k20

Another project that’s been in the making... he got a complete smile (thanks again Pete) I need to play with the alignment on the front clip a little bit, but its on there and everything works... I also added a new set of repro chrome sill plates but I don’t have a picture of that. I’ve got a few smaller things to do this truck like redoing the windshield rubber and re sealing the drip rails, and the motor swap once I get around to getting the temporary vortec 350 finished up. I’m also gonna probably drop my Dana 60 and disk 14 bolt Along with the 4” lift kit under it that I’ve got in the shop. Once all that is done I’m likely going to pull off of this truck for a while and try to get my K10 on the road.

I’ve been gathering more parts for that build lately. I’m not going to go to the same extent on that build as I have taking this one to the frame and back. The K10 is just going to get the motor currently in this truck, along with the axles that I’m pulling from this truck for now until I feel like tackling the rebuild on the 1/2 ton axles and brakes. I’ll likely add a hydraulic clutch and hydraboost to that one too. I’ve also got to fix the front frame where it cracked and was repaired at the steering box. Now that I’ve got this one pretty reliable and drivable I’m going to enjoy it for a while after I get everything I mentioned earlier done. Following all of those things, maybe sometime next year I’m going to dive into the LS swap. And then paint.

Re: 72 k20

Haha well about as nice a 4 or 5 tone truck can anyway I’ve been working on getting the new glovebox liner I bought 2-3 years ago and never installed, to fit. It’s kicking my backside a little bit. I need to rearrange the hvac ducts a little bit. Might get that done tomorrow.

Funny you mention this. My Longhorn still doesn't have one in it. I have one for it but have never installed it either. I have to take off the inner hvac housings and fix that mess. One of the boys kicked them and broke some tabs. Luckily I got a parts truck that has better ones. Now to add it to the list and maybe get it done before winter. Haha
