Default 1964 GMC "crustine" semi-build.

Well, alot of you have seen this truck already, but I thought I'd start a thread so I can document and post pictures of the things I do here and there. I don't have the pictures of when I brought her home anymore so these will have to do. But I do have a video. lol So meet Crustine! 1964 GMC 1500 with a 67 year 305E V6 and 4 speed. Good ol truck. Fun as heck.

Default Re: 1964 GMC "crustine" semi-build.

So in this video after I started the tune up(changed the oil, new plugs and plug wires, new cap, points, and coil, new fuel filter). I started experiencing a knocking noise. And it was right after I changed the plugs...so here I think..great...wrong plugs...put the old ones back in...no change..again..great...now I gotta dig into the engine. Well fast forwarding I'm pretty sure it was either carbon...or some crap that fell in the cylinder from changing the plugs. This engine wasn't particularly clean. lol So after inspecting and more inspecting...suddenly...the knock stopped...I freeze...engine it running fine...no issues...no smoking...well Really fast forward and I'm know sure it was a valve that hung up because I have a slightly bent pushrod. Anyhow...no knock now!

Alright! So, In one of those videos you'll here me talk about a blown head gasket...well...fast forward to last week end and my ordered head gaskets came in along with a set of intake gaskets from felpro. Sunday after church with some help from a friend I dismantled the engine enough to pull that one head off and low and behold..It WASN'T a blown head gasket. Here I am like NO!!! 4 hours of labor to find this!!!! lol Well...it was fun and very greasy. haha And I got winded lifting that head outta there but was able to mange alone...somehow...so anyway...come to find out the valley pan gasket is gone...pretty much sucked in by the engine and spit out...so of course I didn't have one so I'm like "Oh, but I got lots a silicon!!!"

lol. So...gooooed it up real good and threw it back on...put the head back on...torqued it down(making up my own pattern. lol Seems fine so far) and put the valve train back together...adjusted the valves on both sides....hook up my hoses and start pouring anti freeze in and I'm wondering why my pants are wet....well...that big ol harrison blew a hole. Crap!!! lol So fast forward to today and I throw in my 64 chevy's old radiator in there...hook everything up and Walla!!! No leaks!!!

Ah well...get a new one from Napa and redrain the water for the 4th time. lol So, next on the list...Carb kit!!! New air cleaner...better oil...and drive drive drive!!! But for now...she's running wonderfully again! And I'm excited for out next drive. Video tomorrow guys.

Well Gents, Here's the latest video! She's running like a swiss watch. Carb rebuild and I think we'll be doing a burnout.

Looking good and sounds great TJ!! If my 65 would've had a V-6 instead of the inline 230 6 cylinder I would have kept it, but went totally different path because of that. Following your updates so keep them coming.

Thanks! On another note...that little 230 could have been made into a mean motor. lol I'm talking turbo's here.

lol. I kept the 292 in my 66 chevy and have a freshly hopped up 292 going into it backed by a tremec 5 speed. It'll be one heck of alot of fun.

Well how is everyone? lol Took crustine on her 1st "long haul" today. Went and picked up manure at a friend's house and brought it home...Thing ran FLAWLESSLY! Man! Bout a 15 mile round trip...took the long way home so I could pull some grades and I am impressed. I'd take that 305 over a stinkin 350 anyday. I'm pullin hills in 4th at 50 miles an hour at 1/4 throttle with ease. Awesome engine, people need to realize what they really have instead of wanting the cheap and easy rout. If it runs good leave it!

Alrighty so Crustine had a new windshield installed yesterday! Nice to have the old cracked one gone and a new seal that doesn't leak like crazy.
