so as a few of you have been following I figure I should start a build thread. This will probably be slow going. since this 83 will be my daily driver for the most part. at the beginning of the month I recently picked up a 1983 Chevy K20. So far from what I can tell its in pretty decent shape. 14 semi floater read end, slight leak on the t-case, pretty strong 700r4 and a 350 with what I was told a mild RV cam, timing gears instead of the chain, 680 CFM edelbrock carb, and an older edelbrock intake manifold. other then that the seller said it is stock. he also informed me that he replaced the Radiator, hoses and thermostat not to long ago. It came to me on 33" M/Ts which I took off and put on my 31" A/Ts in order to prolong the M/Ts life and not tear them up on the pavement. My plan: When I can have it down for a bit I will be putting in my built 350 RV Cam polished crank shaved down aluminum edelbrock heads, with longer rods and roller rockers oversized, high comp pistons edelbrock RPM high rise intake manifold 1" carb spacer and another edelbrock 680 CFM carb This motor is currently sitting in my 86 C20 which I converted from a diesel several years ago. once I have the motors swapped, then I will work through the other problems that come with doing that. For now I would like to keep the 83 running and try to sort out as many small issues as possible with the trans, electrical, and cooling system. This truck will remain my DD as well as weekend off road warrior, and it will still need to be able to pull our quads to and from riding areas. I've attached a few shots that I believe I have already posted, just because everyone likes pictures and I for some reason don't take that many.
