    Ok, I'm so stoked about this one it's drivin me nutz! lol...Ok heres the story...The radio station in town has like a classified section on the website......Saw an 82 chevy short bed for sale there. So I called the lady about it. She said it was a diesel that had been converted to gas. Was lifted and had "monster" tires. So I went out to look at it today. It's a 1/2 ton Silverado short bed. 4" lift on 33's. Now this is the second best part...It has a Holley Pro-Jectioned 402 big block, TH400, 208 case, and weany 10 bolts. Now for the BEST part...Guess how much I'm gettin it for?

    I think I'm gonna keep it and fix it up to be a tow rig for the K5. Do the 3/4 ton conversion, Pull the Pro-Jection off the 402 and into the Blazer. Put a Edelbrock Performer Q-jet on the 402, and call it good. lol, Did I mention that it also comes with a CB and radar detector? /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    I seem to have good luck with the radio stations "classifieds" website....A month or so ago, I saw and ad for a free 76 chevy stepside 2 wheel drive- No engine, tranny was sittin in the back..And a free '74 K5 with a dissasembled 350, TH350 and 203. Both trucks were pretty much trash except for the drive trains. The K5 had the D44 up front and a blown 12 bolt out back with 3.73's. My K5 had 3.08's, So I swapped in the front end outta the 74 into mine, which also has flat top passenger knuckle, and off loaded the rest of the junk in trade for my 14b ff. So my 14 bolt and D44 with 3.73's were basically free. And now I made this score.....YeeeeHaaaaa!!!! Luck of the Irish I guess. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    Hell yeah I hope it's a head gasket...if it's a cracked block...That would suck ass. Gaskets are a simple thing, and if it has a cracked head, thats just an excuse to go with some nice shiny new Edelbrock heads. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif Soon as I tear into it and figure out whats goin on, I'll post it...Wish me luck! /forums/images/icons/grin.gif /forums/images/icons/smile.gif /forums/images/icons/cool.gif
