Who doesn’t love a custom C-10? Don’t answer that Ford guys 🤨 @ponchoc10 is keeping his transmission cool with one of our Electra-cool transmission cooling kits. These coolers can be tucked away from the elements because the electric fan pulls 650cfm, so there’s no need for traditional airflow like coolers mounted on the front of radiators. .
Had the most amazing experience at this years Power Athlete Symposium. We moved the venue to the Native Hostel in downtown Austin in hopes of creating a unique experience. We decided to build a 1977 Chevy C10 truck to auction off in the not so silent auction. We brought in powerful & dynamic speakers to take part and engage the audience. I got to sit at the TTMJ long road table with some of the strongest and most vulnerable people I know to share their thoughts and feelings on everything under the sun. We had a kickass dinner courtesy of Stay Classy at my home. I love being able to share what we have created and this symposium set the bar high. Thank you to the Power Athlete team and all the participants and presenters. It was an amazing event. #iwasinverted#2018PowerAthleteSymposium#knowledgeispower#powerathlete#facemelt#c10
I had a chance to refamilarize myself with the engine compartment on the #allamericanc10 over the weekend.
Much has changed.
When I let her go in the late '90's, she was sporting an in-line 6 with a 3 speed manual transmission. As best I can tell, she's now powered by what I think is a 350 with an automatic transmission.
This guy who last owned her...SMH. Hoses down regulated via vise grips (see 2nd photo), header bolts missing, extra battery cables laying loose in the engine bay, battery not secured in the battery tray...lots of opportunity.
After all the years it spent setting dormant in his front yard growing weeds, It's obvious he hastily threw a spare engine and trans in to get her moving so he could sell her and turn a quick buck.
I don't get it...I would have pulled her out of his yard as she sat and paid the same amount I gave to the pawn shop for her. Nobody will treat you like family will, I suppose....lol!
At least there's a bright side in the engine bay...he gave me a free bottle of break fluid tucked into the fender!
What do you think...should I pull this one, have the block machined and rebuild it?
Or should I hold out for the LS3 I originally had planned?
Rebuilding the current engine will free up $$$ for the chassis work.
