Thats a beautifull truck, congratualtions!

It looks like you scored a well restored truck body for sure.

The nice part about that is that you can drive the wheels off it and gradually put your stamp on it; as you get to know it.

Is you plan to do any work on the engine, other than the carb setup ? Was there a rebuild done to the block at all?

Welcome to FTE, your home while at home. The family will love it I'm sure.

We are getting ready to do a bunch of work to the truck. We are installing Posie lowering springs front and rear, new intake and heads (going with Edelbrock) Carbs are going to be sent to Dicks Hot Rod Carbs in Texas to be rebuilt and mounted to the new intake and progressive linkage being redone. While that is going on we are pulling the engine and trans to paint it. We will be putting on new exhaust redoing a bunch of the wiring and rerunning the fuel lines as the new set up will have the fuel log by the carbs. We will also be dressing up the engine bay and completing the disc conversion up front (kit came with the truck).

Take a close look at the front of the float bowl covers (air horns) and the front screws on your center and rear carburetors. They may be damaged from grinding them down to fit that manifold. I had a new Offy triple manifold in the early 60's and had to do the same thing to the center and rear carburetors to make them fit. 97's would probably have worked, but I had the 94's. Maybe check before sending them to your carb guy - possibly he can "fix" them. - Bob
