Hey guys - recently picked up a 1974 C10 Custom Deluxe. It's been 30 years since I've had a vehicle I can work on so picked this up as a work truck and a work-on truck. So far it runs great but I'm thinking of going the EFI route. Looking forward to learning from you all and sharing the adventure

Welcome from the Texas Panhandle.

Looks like a straight truck. I'd stick with a carburetor if it was mine, even if it needed a carb kit. I don't care to to deal with computers on an older vehicle that doesn't need one.
74 was the last year for a points distributer. I would swap in an HEI if it still has points.

Welcome from Central NC. Thanks for the pic. Look around at some of the tech threads for your FI swap info.
