Re: 1969 K5 Blazer

When i was test fitting the roll bar with top on the day i first picked it up, it looked pretty good. I like seeing some of it through the side window. I'll get the top on again soon, waiting on bed side seals and have been working on the interior - so having it off has been really nice. Oh yeah, and its summer, so i guess I'm not in a rush!

Re: 1969 K5 Blazer

Got it together enough to go on a "field" trip the other day.
Replaced the fuel sending unit shortly after this is and I wasnt getting any fuel to the carb. Pulled my hair out trying to figure this one out. Turned out the fuel line fore/aft fuel pipe had a pin hole in it and wasnt building pressure. I mustve bumped it enough while taking down the gas tank. New 3/8ths feed pipe fixed that.
Shortly after I was fighting a sputtering during coast down, figured out to be overfueling. The carb floats must have had pinholes in them, they were full of gas. Replaced those, now shes running pretty good.
Lots of torque in this big block down low but feels like it falls on its face in higher revs....

Re: 1969 K5 Blazer

Did you have rust in this spot? Where the floor meets the step up? If so what did you do?

Re: 1969 K5 Blazer

no thankfully i did not have it across that area. only a little bit where the "waterfall" meets the floor by the nut for the seat belt. I was able to bend the inner rocker to meet up to that section fine.

Re: 1969 K5 Blazer

Well here she is guys. I had 15x8 4 nub wheels on my C10 that I replaced and we used those to put 33x12.5x15 Goodyear Mud Terrain KM3's on. Love the stuffed look of these tires in the wheel wells.
Got the roll bar locked down and have been working on interior stuff.

I vote no roll bar ruins the look if your off roading and under 30 keep it
