85 Silverado C10
« on: August 19, 2018, 01:28:00 AM »
hey new to this group. Im in the process of bringing my new 85 C10 back to life. got it from my father in-law. its a New Mexico truck. super clean. Im in the middle of doing a ls swap, using 06 5.3 and 4l60e trans. freshened up the heads, new timing chain, oil and water pump. along with all new sensors. so all the factory gauges will work. got a 91 cluster for it so that fixs the speedo problem. didnt plan on tearing it down as far as I did but one thing lead to the other and well, here we are. lol going with the CPP upper and lower tubular control arms, sway bar and front shocks. hoping to get the front end back on it this week.

So I've been busy. Should have it up and running this weekend. This is the last pieces coming together, trans lines.

Got her up and running. Few minor issues, but figured everything out. Runs great looks even better.

Nice Job Man!

Great feeling when we finally turn the key and drop it in gear, right?

Have fun!
