Hello, I am looking for the upper hood latch portion for a 1978 chevy k10, internal hood release. The base part I already have just need the bolt with the loop on it. The picture of what I am looking for is attached. Like I said, I just need the bolt part with the loop on the end. Thanks.

 83 K10 that i'm doing a ground up on. Truck functioned fine when taken apart. I labeled all connections and where they went. Months ago when i started reassembly i had the cab on 2x4's not bolted down. I have been successfully starting/idling the motor with the braided strap on the little firewall stud, starter hot all normal but the ground cable from the battery would only crank the truck if i put the end on the alternator bracket/other engine component. It would power up but not crank if i put the end of the cable on the PS frame rail like it was originally located.

I now have the cab bolted to the frame correctly which i thought would complete any grounds needed from cab to chassis.Today i got curious and cleaned up the frame and bolted the negative cable there. Truck powered up and barely cranked.. braided firewall ground started smoking. The only other wire that isnt connected is the rad support ground wire. I figured i didnt need that except for headlights etc. I am horrible at wiring so i tried to label everything very clearly and take pictures of exactly where it came from. This has me a bit stumped.

Hey Gang,

I'm new to the world of square body trucks but def not new to the world of cars and projects.  I felt a little nostalgic lately about my Grandpa's old truck and decided it was time to have one for myself.  I snapped up this awesome '77 C20.  I believe my Grandpa's was a '78 but I can't quite remember and I haven't found the pictures of it yet.  I try to post up a few pics of the planned upgrades along the way and hopefully I can pic your brains about the little technical issues that come up.

Hey Gang,

I'm new here to the forum and I promise I have exhausted every possible way to search for this topic before starting a new one.  I'm sure I missed it somehow so please bear with me.  I have a 1977 C20 and it's really pretty nice.  I would like to back-date a few items however and the grill is one of the main items.  I know the 75 grill should work with the same 77~78 grill support bars but I'm concerned about the latch.  I have the typical hand operated latch with the lever up front vs the cable operated inside version.  It seems like the 1975 grill wants to have a latch handle that's slightly offset towards the drivers side and it has a mount screw in the center?  If anyone can shed light on this I would very much appreciate it.  Also if it's a new latch that I need I would be interested in purchasing one if it's available.  I feel like that's not an item on the reproduction list yet.

Thank you,

Robert Morris
