    Plan to take my van with the dog to Prescott, think I need to run it around town before I let my dog have a ride. Sure there will be some gremlins. It's ready to actually drive out back to the painter, might have to go around the block a few times though...

    Plan to have the car trailer hitched up to the shop truck when I head to the freeway along with a chase car. My dog is almost a year old and can chase a ball, but damn if he can chase out every gremlin.......
    Forgot to Dynamat under the dash so did that today and finished all the wiring and replaced a bad fuel gauge. Got a 100% and did't even blow a fuse...... Had a seep in the fuel line but think I fixed that, Next?
    Painters finishing some race car so I will get it out there Tuesday I hope........

    New guy here with my first post, but I think I can help you a lot with your heater to turbo interference. Those old trucks had two different heater options. You have what is known as the "Deluxe" model heater. You need an "Economy" heater. You should be able to find one if you look in the junkyards or internet old truck haunts. Here is the one in my 63. Notice the entire unit is under the dash and there is no intrusion into the engine compartment. The Economy heater trucks had factory block off plates on the holes in the firewall right where your Deluxe heater mounts.

    Smooth firewall.

    Thanks Rube, have been on your threads checking it all out. Business is always good when your work is as good yours.

    Hey Dude! I think a 6BT would fit even keeping the stock location of the radiator, would you go 4X4?

    Howdy Ayers, welcome aboard! I ended up putting a radius in the heater box (hammer and big socket) that "should" give me enough clearence..... I collected a few trucks for this build over the last year but all had the deluxe heater, one had factory A/C but I decided to keep it simple as it doesn't get that hot here next to the ocean. I might have to reconfigure if I changed up the turbo though........... Jeff

    Still have my anchor out here in Arizona. Fixing all my moms and sisters stuff. He said that my tail gate is painted but my truck is still inside, the " weather " is what the painter told me is holding him back.....lazy pos as said before. But sure like AZ. Won a 4 day 3 night stay in the White Mountains and a custom Dawson knife at a raffle. My brother in law works for Ruger so have been shooting quite a bit, plus riding my M/C so I am not in a real big hurry to head back yet. My other brother in law runs the Center Force Clutch Factory and are in a show down in Scottsdale this weekend so I plan to go there......the longer I stay the harder it is to leave.

    If I ever do the swap it will be in my 63 4x4, remove the 4bt and use a 6bt with high mount turbo a getrag and 205,
    also first Gen radiator and intercooler. I have all the parts, just not the ambition or time and every time I get serious the price of fuel goes up. It will not be much differant on mpg I suspect but every mile counts.

    Seems like a 6bt would fit really nice, lots of room front and rear with stock radiator location. Mine is sat down between the frame rails which gives about 6"s above the turbo as it sits now. Little too close to the pumpkin for my liking but that is what the bump stops are for. 3/4Ton would be that much nicer.

    Been gone for 5 weeks and all that was done was my tail gate, still have my rear quarter panels to paint. Was supposed to be done but found my paint on my bench and was told he was not going to finish it regardless that I had paid him in full awhile ago........Thats what friends are for I guess. Did get my GMC letters painted and think they look better than before as discussed earlier in this thread. Spent the last 2 days talking to a few other painters and have a great guy near the shop and he needs some home electrical work so we can trade labor and such. Its a $1,000 to finish the paint and most of my truck was done in his booth anyways. Still have not driven it but will have to take the long way over there.

    I just skimmed through this and I wish I had seen this sooner. My dad built a tail gate for an old ford truck he had. He had the same hook and chain set up you have but his was mounted inside the bed, the chain really beat the snot out of the paint. That is my personal take on that and since it has not been panted yet maybe you could redo it if you wanted to, after all it is your truck.

    They make a clear cover which I bought for the chains and a cushion where it pushes on the gate. Just wanted the stock look. Alot of guys hide them inside when they sit them on the ground for the hot rod effect.

    I do have the invoices, its still a small town where my family had been for 100 years. I will shame him on the way to Small claims........

    I"m done grippen.....just trying to get this thing finished. It will be for sale then anyways.

    Might be heading to your great state in a few months, mom and sisters are there in Prescott now.

    Have alot of cash tied up in that thing, planned to have a beater and it got out of control....LOL Had to clean the drool off the hood from a few guys who want it, told them to show me the money and we would talk.....

    The bottom line is it's too nice for me. Seems I am always dusty and dirty and my dog sheds everywhere. And then theres the next project..........LOL!
