63 305e Duck killer!
 
My Uncle taught me to drive in this truck when I was 14, 15 years later my amazing uncle passed away. It had sat for a few years out in Gustine California. I towed it home to Santa Cruz and learned enough from you guys and these forums to get it running on my own. She runs really pretty good. I did a compression test and the results were inconsistent, I was getting 90 psi on all plugs when I believe it said here I should be getting 125psi. The Dana rear axle needs new clutches and Iím not exactly sure which ones Iím supposed to order, but I was also told a better option would just be to put a 14 bolt Chevy rear end. Thank you all for your wisdom and dedication to these vehicles. You have helped me more than you know! I plan on using the stimmi checks to put on dual exhaust, I canít make up my mind if I want to use purple hornies and do smoke stacks or just glass packed drop pipes. I put these wheels and tires on because I didnít want to pay for the 16.5 tires to fit the original rims. I think I will have some fun for 20 years or so before I start to restore it back to looking more classic

If all six measure about 90 psi, I wouldn't worry about it too much. Accuracy can vary from gauge to gauge. Consistency is what counts.

I still think you've got a 1964 there, not a 1963, in spite of what your title might say. The 1963 trucks were the last year for the wrap-around windshields. 1964 was the first year for the rectangular windshield like yours.
