    When I first looked at this rig...
    the motor was knocking ...
    I drove the truck home...it backfired...then it started to run smooth..
    by the time I got the rig home..it was running like a kitten. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I think the motor that was JUST installed...had a sticky valve or something..
    or it JUST likes ME!!! /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    86 K30
    noisy 350 motor...(needs replaced)
    d60/14bff 4.10's /detroit rear
    sm465/205
    hydro-clutch

    I think it's an excellent deal. You know as well as I do what that drivetrain is worth. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Re: $1000 for a k30...is this a deal???

    Well look at it this way , the parts are worth more than the whole truck . You could post the axles, hydro parts , trans , and case and make more than that easily . So if you had a straight rust free frame , swap them on and it sounds like a good deal to me , or if you are capable fix the frame and go /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Drat! I stopped to look at that truck, he wanted $1500, and of course I didn't have it all. Grrrrr
    its on Hametown Rd, right? I live seriously 4 minutes from there.

    well, if you end up not needing the clutch stuff/tranny/transfer, then *cough* I need it!

    Oh well, I just needed the 32 spline 465/205 and hydro clutch out of that. I live on Taylor Rd on the other side of 21. I'm surprised I've never seen your K5.

    Oh, so what are the details on the CC? hehe

    I don't drive down Hametown regularly, just once in a while when I am out driving around. I guess I need to look closer! lol

    I was just at Beheydt's about 2-3 weeks ago, They only had a couple of 4x4's that I could see. A 78-79 Ford Bronco, an early 80's SFA Toy, and a really stripped down K20 with a 10/14 bolt. I didn't see a K30 in there, but it might be gone.

    Oh well, I got my (Dodge) Dana 60 there for $150, at least you didn't get your dirty little paws on it first /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
