Lost all my earlier pictures of what she started out as.  Thread contains different routes Ive went but its all good.

Got the carbs on:

I bought these a few years back from a NWDE member ZEED. Now I just have to figure out fuel lines, throttle and what type of Intake Air filter I should go with. The linkage was rigged in a way that will work. Here are some pics. Should I leave them alone or reconfigure?

ANd some of the original Air Filter setup.

I'll have question about this setup later.

Thats all for now.

Hey that S.U. setup looks familiar! I wondered if you ever used it. Engine looks nice but it really needs a header....... like the one taking up space in my shop.

I was wondering if you were around still. Havn't done much with the 620 until recently. Since fuel prices are on the rise, I decided it was time to get it running. And you mentioned something about your header, will it fit past the torsion bars?

I'm thinking about going with a different air intake setup. Something like the original but with one large dia pipe to an filter. Was there any benefit going with two tubes?

It clears the torsion bars fine. I made the dual tube setup for clearance around the brake booster , the setup didn't come with any filters. A single tube should work fine.

All of the hard work will pay off. Do you have colors picked out for the frame & engine bay ?

In the immortal words of Hainz, "I like that truck" A lot of work but it will be sweet when its done. I am working on my 73 and I am debating wether or not to paint the engine bay.:blink: I know I should but it is so much work! Nows the time tho with the motor and tranny out.
Stance is everything

I highly recommend POR-15 as a frame paint. I seems a little pricey when you go shopping for the stuff, but it ened up being cheaper and much more durable than a few rattle cans. I got my POR-15 at NAPA. I got a starter kit, was under 20 bucks and it would easily do that entire front frame section. By using the starter kit, i didnt spend very much money on supplies that i had never tried before. I later went back and got a quart.

Thats why I decided to get that area done. Dont want to have to remove engine again to paint.

I am using TECHnique NAPA Brand Chassis Black, 7 bucks a can for the frame and other parts. I would rather powder coat the suspension but it cost to much. So, rattle it is.

Powder coating has gone up in price quite a bit. Kinda sucks, I love powder coating.

Also i'd recomend a dark brown paint to match the exterior. Black paint is just so bleh. Its nice to have a color that atleast looks sorta close to the exterior. Thats just me tho.

Truck looks cool. I'll have to swing by some time this month and check it out. I might be out in GP picking up parts in a couple weeks.

Trucks not staying that ugly brown. Original owner had it painted in the early 80's that rootbeer brown with gold flake. Blue it will be.

For small parts like suspension stuff, you could always invest in a harbor freight, or sears powder coating kit. They're relatevily cheap, and seem to turn out some quality finished stuff once you get the hang of it... A guy at work turned it into a small "side money" thing. Picked himself up an old oven, and does wheels, suspension stuff, etc... Wish I had the time to do a complete job like you are.

Keep up the good work Farmer!
