    Well I had these under cover plans to swap a my newly acquired 12-Valve NV4500/NV241 combo into my 79 K20

    But I've decided to sell this truck :( to build a K-30 or V-3500 my only requiremnts being NO RUST and it must be an A/C truck this "new" truck will get the diesel running gear and a full resto

    OR I will be swapping said drivetrain into my 98 burb which is getting an SAS . Hi pinon kingpin 60 with 36" spring spacing . the current 454/4l80e would then go to my 75 model stepside:doah:

    Also my Superduty will be going bye bye as well to make way for a new 6.7 cummins powered ram

    [​IMG]

    Any ideas or comments???? I love that Brown K-20 but I'm thinking a Nice 30 series would be a good addition . Also i'm in negotions to buy a 69' model K-5 which is the truck I've always wanted but never seem to be able to attain:mad: so I forsee big changes arond my yard in the next few months .......... geez before you know it I'll be like allen(mountainexplorer):doah:

    put the cummins/nv4500/241 into a k30 and put a hp60 into it i think that would be sweet and completely unique...then you could sell the chevy 60 or just start collecting them like *cough* allen *cough*

    i'd say stick to your plan, stick the cummins in the 79 k20, that would be sweet.

    I know what you mean, i'm having remorse for my 85 and I'm not even 100% sure I want to sell it. The only reason I would is when I get the 81 crew built I won't have need for it and I want a k5 for offroading and I know the wife wont let me have 3 of my own rigs.
