Nice looking truck you got there, the later model bed looks good on it too. Would love to see some more pics posted of it.

Hopefully not too dumb of a question....but how do you remove the original air filter (oil type filter) from the housing? I couldn't figure it out so just bought a new edelbrock filter. Thanks for any info/advice!

Stick with the paper element filter -- your engine will thank you for it. They're about 99% efficient compared to about 95% for the best maintained oil bath filter. Much less than that for a poorly maintained one.

Looks like your frame got shortened in order to accommodate a short bed. That's what I did to the '66 Clyde in South Carolina has now. You can see it in my avatar photo.

I've heard some guys have gutted these oil bath air cleaners and installed paper elements but do you really want to do that? Just recently in the last couple of weeks we've had posts on original GMC air cleaners.

Like the cab clearance lights, that's been a tradition in my family on all our green GMC's from the 62 K1000, the 68 KM2500 and to the most recent truck I inherited from my father a 2001 1500 GMC Sierra HT. The 62's were dealer installed back in 66 and they didn't quite do it right with 4 clearance lights rather than 5, The 68 we ordered the truck to be equipped with the lights from the factory

Thanks Ed. Will stick with the paper element! As to the frame. Not shortened, maybe the previous pic was a bit skewed. Here's another angle....

No interest in gutting it. I thought for sure I was missing some simple way to pop the oil bath filter out. Guess not. Thx!
