Okay, I have been tearing up photobucket... hope this works!

Some of these may have been posted in my other thread...

As it sat 2 years ago:







Interior (I can't believe how much I have neglected this truck over the years )







After disassembly:







Progress!!!




As it sits currently:







Suspension assembly this weekend and hope to have it back on its tires by Sunday evening.

More to follow I'm sure.

Re: Pics of my '65 C-10 Fleetside

Several friends have told me "install aluminum heads! You'll take a ton of weight off the front end"....

Well this isn't a race car and I took a ton off the front end..... by cleaning all the grease off the spindles and backing plates!

Re: Pics of my '65 C-10 Fleetside

Front suspension is done! Linkage and gear box next then bolt up the sway bar!




New Champion radiator test fit.



Not overly thrilled with where they placed the drain valve or the lower radiator hose outlet but....



Regarding power steering: those that have done this what kit did you use to mount the box to the frame and what did you like or dislike about it?
I have a new tilt column from CPP which a 1" DD output so replacing the entire shaft isn't out of the question but I would really like to use a box mounting plate that is simple and requires minimal drilling and preferably no drilling on the box itself.

Re: Pics of my '65 C-10 Fleetside

Good work. Is it just the tight clearance on the lower valve and hose? They look real close to the support. It's a beefy radiator though. Thanks for sharing.

Re: Pics of my '65 C-10 Fleetside

Yeah, for whatever reason I keep thinking that the radiator should sit centered in the frame rails but the hose barb doesn't allow that. Also the upper mount is going to need some spreading to fit over the top tank.
Otherwise it seems to be a quality piece.

The lower drain in the rad is placed there to clear the factory shoud and the lower saddle is close the the bottom hose barb but hasn`t created any problems, your upper tank retainer you will not be able to use the thick rubber, I ended up using vaccum hose two strips to run around all three sides. it fits snug and its close. thesteering you`ll need a Rez kit or get one from Capt Fab, he sells a nice piece but you will need one to save the frame or it will crack.
