Speed Posted April 5, 2022 Share Posted April 5, 2022 This truck is a '78 standard cab one ton dually,2 wheel drive,but the VIN from the frame,which it's Registered by,shows it to be a 1974 Chevy one ton crew cab 4WD. I'd like to settle,once and for all,how hard is it to make a K-30 into a C-30? I ve heard everything from "Piece of cake-just slide the front suspension under the frame,bolt it in and change the steering box to the C-30 version and you're good to go." to "It can't be done without cutting,welding,lots of measuring,etc. etc. etc. So I don't know how this was accomplished. Its a good truck,and it has a 13 foot flatbed on it. Currently awaiting a 400 smallblock that I wanna change the timing chain to a new double roller set,a one piece oil pan gasket and a Holley square bore 4 barrel carb. The engine is from a '78 Motor home. It has an A/C compressor,so it'll be set up with on-board Air. The truck already has a 7 gallon air tank and most of the plumbing,which I intend to start fresh on,but I'll keep the air tank. Future inteny is an NV-4500and better seat,new windshield,a grille and more exterior lights. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
