    my pop bran home another flat bed truck thats gonna double as a pannel truck and a semi towrig cause the bed lifts up allowing something to drive up it ;D but it will more so be a pannel truck this makes another addition to my car cluttered yard, first 2 pics are the new truck 3rd is a chevy tall deck 350 and the fourth is what my yard looks like on a daily basis, and 3* of the vechiles are hidden >.<




    only downside about this truck is i belive a cdl is needed for it, and if it needs ones i suppose i need to go get a cdl license

    Yep, the yard is starting to look good. Though what I call good isn't what neighbors call good.

    Looks like it could be a fun truck. :D

    first swap out those axles and put in 2.5 top loaders. then 49" iroks


    next that looks like a std 350 to me. never seen or heard of a tall deck in a sbc motor. but new stuff every day pops up.

    i dont know much about motors, i just go by what my dad says cause he knows more than me not saying hes wrong cause he prolly is, but that motor pulls impressive amounts of weight with little struggles but that could also have something to do with the gearing i think iono im an idiot haha ;p

    it's a standard deck height block but that's a good score it's an 010 020 4-bolt main with HD rods and a steel crank pop a set of Vortecs on it and you'll have one hell of a Motor

    It may also Be a "509" casting which is good too look on the back of the block behind the Flywheel it should say 010 and 020 the 509 would be on the side of the block under the freeze plugs and above the pan rails

    in MICHIGAN you just need a choufers license. its 26000 or less. unless you pull a trailer comercially then you need a CDL A.even without air brakes.

    no factory forged cranks in 350s... so there goes that idea.

    here, its < 26K Cheauffeur's license, trailer or no trailer. pulling a trailer (providing it is within DOT spec) requires no special permit.

    they arent Gen I small blocks (with the exception of the DZ302, which isnt a 350), and that is definitely what is pictured.

    the LS6 and LS7 are both Bigblocks from the late 60's early 70's as is the small block LT-1 (now there are Newer FI LT1's in vettes camaro's and such ) and there are the 3rd gen LS-6 and LS-7 (smallblocks) . Also can you tell me the difference between a DZ302 and a 350 externally???

    hmm i dont know much anything about the motor, but i think the new truck with my k20 ontop of it will be really tall when towing so iono how much good its gonna do, not to mention i suck at driveing stick due to lack of exposure to it, so we'll see how the truck goes as a tow rig

    I AM talking about smallblock 350's that motor he pictured has a forged steel crank and so do alot of heavy duty and High preformance 1st generation Chevrolet smallblocks So you Can Shut the **** up Cause you were wrong and got called out on it . My point in the above posts was that many chevys came with FACTORY forged steel cranks both small and bigblocks. It's cool man I don't know everything about GM's not evn close so maybe we should tone this down a notch or two .

    You'll get it , It just takes some practice but your right about it being way tall especially if your truck has much lift

    I would just say look at the crank when its torn down . You can tell whether its forged or cast by the number ....... that is if you can't tell the difference from the parting line .

    Maybe someday I will tear my 1966 283 apart and see if its forged because it was in a truck :thumb:

    I'm not sure it might be I've never heard of a forged 283 crank BUT that doesn't mean there aren't....... wait there are all a DZ 302 is is a 350 block with a large journal 283 Forged crank and the special pistons
