Re: C20 to K20 Conversion "Simply Toxic"

Started on the steering this past weekend. I bought high steer arms from Ruff Stuff Specialties, and was able to modify a pitman arm from skyjacker to fit my Chevy steering gear. I had to order a 3/4" drill bit that hasn't come in yet, gotta drill the tapper out of the high steer arms and the pitman arm. I used a 1/2" bolt for mock up and made sure I left some extra thread for the bolt size difference. Still have to add a stabilizer shock to the system.

Re: C20 to K20 Conversion "Simply Toxic"

Ruff Stuff is a great source for brackets, tabs, shackles, axle perches, etc. Good prices and good quality. Got my axle perches and ubolt plates for the rear axle from them. My brother has used their products on a few projects as well.

Re: C20 to K20 Conversion "Simply Toxic"

Same here actually, my 14 bolt perches and shock mounts came from ruff stuff. Really beefy parts.
There Dana 60 steering stuff looks top notch as well. Thanks for the link above.

No problem, I was really impressed by the quality of all their stuff. Will for sure be buying more from them.

Re: C20 to K20 Conversion "Simply Toxic"

Got out and put the last piece of the front suspension on this past weekend, got the trac bar put on. Still have to clean up some welds and add gussets to stuff. But for the first time in 4 years the old girl is sitting and rolling on all 4 again.

Thanks.

Got the other body panels on it to make room in the garage for my Dads truck coming over for a engine swap before it goes to paint. Its a 1965 C10 long bed. I was able to get a good look of what the old girl will look like once its completed.

Thanks guys.

Trying to sell my SM465 (this is NOT a for sale post) right now so I can pick up a 4L80. I decided to switch over to automatic. Also have my dads truck 1965 C10 in the shop, pulling the inline 6 and manual trans out of it. Putting a e85 350/th350 setup in it, old setup was having issues, its all getting replaced.

Re: C20 to K20 Conversion "Simply Toxic"

Well, I've had my dads truck in the shop the last few weeks doing a engine swap on it. Its a 1965 C10, we ended up taking the 250 and the 4 speed out of it. Swapped in a 350 bored .040 over with a th350 trans. Doing the final tune on it and sending it home in a couple of days. Once its tuned I'll post a video on youtube and attach a link here.

That 350 should get him around a bit quicker than the old I6. Remember good times working with my dad.

How is your truck coming along? No updates since last year.

Well... Due to being sick and then changing jobs, I've only been able to work on the old girl maybe one weekend since the last update. I was getting ready to get working on it when the cam decided to take itself out on my dad's truck. So I've been working on that, while it was at my shop, he decided to buy the seats I have in my '67. Once I get the seats mounted in that I can get his out of my shop and get back on mine. I'll tell you, I'm getting tired of working other peoples stuff while mine just waits.

Re: C20 to K20 Conversion "Simply Toxic"

Have some projects for others as well myself. An injury had halted everything. Now trying to get the others done while still keeping my project going forward. I know how it can add to frustration.
