Great job. Can't wait to see it in your truck.

Is the rubber boot on your clutch fork new? If so what the part number and where did you get it? Thanks.

Hi Rolland, I did not use the rope seal that was in the FelPro kit. For the last three stovebolt inline six engine I have assembled I went with Best Gasket rear main seals. The later blocks 1955 and later I used their rubber lip seals, which are the best out there IMHO. The earlier blocks I used a rope seal provided by Olson Gasket here in Port Orchard, WA. They build obsolete gasket kits for farm tractors and obsolete vehicles of all makes and models. They advised against the newer rope seals available. The asbestos ropes are all long gone unless you have an old gasket kit, So I had them provide me with their own version of rope seal available for the 305. They advised to install dry, I used a little of "permatex 2" along the outside edge of the three sides of the bearing cap surface/block, and they also included the two skinny side bearing seals for the rear main cap to go with. I used very lightly permatex 2 on these too. Like all rear mains installs, take a deep breath and hold it and wait for the first engine run cycle. For some odd reason I don't have too much anguish over it this time. Probably just my ignorance. I'll have some pictures of your wonderful pistons shortly.
Tbucket...GREAT information, thanks! I wasn't finding the gasket kit from anyone and these guys have the whole thing (upper and lower) and include their MUCH better rope main for $195 shipped.

Been busy doing a bunch of auto repair work for extended family members and my project was on hold. No back to the passenger side inner and outer rockers, cut out and the new metal fitted nicely. Next work day I'll mig it into place. Regarding this reproduction metal, I was extremely pleased with the brothers metal. All of it fit like it was original GM stamped. Pretty impressed. I do have some left over metal I did not use if any of you guys in need of the front and rear door jamb pillars on both sides, Ill make you a smoking deal.

Glad I could help you back a little Rolland. Olson gaskets are great people and work hard to please people whom are trying to find kits. Here is a pic of your pistons in their new home.

Wonderful work you are doing Steve! Yes, those pistons do look much better in their rightful place than in a box.

Hello GMC truck lovers, New update on my project. Finally got the cab lifted off the frame and set on a roll around dolly I made from some scrap steel.
The plan now is to remove the windshield because you can now stand right in front of it and remove with care.
A buddy of mine came over and he saw how far I am taking this restoration and he was puzzled over why I wouldn't remove the windshield and check and clean/paint the windshield channel.
I have to admit I am a little unorthodox on my methods. But when you are in your 60's working on something from the sixties, you have to work smarter not harder when you can.
Also with the cab off, you can see I have some more frame cleaning and painting to do where it sat.
This was also done by design because the days of me laying on my back scraping old undercoat off a body with all that dirt and grime falling in my face are over.
Next on the frame after finishing cleaning/painting is finish up building the main brake line and install on the right frame rail. Then onto the tank to fuel pump hard line. Next the finished engine and trans will then be united into the frame on some nice revulcanized motor mounts.
The cab will get pressure washed top to bottom after a manual degrime. Then the sanding and prep will begin.
Cheers guys.

Finished Chassis met with finished engine and transmission today. A huge milestone in this project.
Hopefully, this will propel me into working on the cab next.
Thanks guys for watching the journal. Hoping for weekly updates now.

Friday update:
The gantry and chain hoist came in handy again. Eased the cab over on its back to work on the underside. Degreased with zep industrial cleaner, then wire brushed/wheel, cleaned again, then seam sealed the floor and rocker patches. Then a nice coating of rust reformer. The truck had just the minimal undercoat spray it had from the factory came out pretty clean. Today will be coating with a suitable undercoat or bedliner, will see. I'm pretty impressed with these new rust reformers.
Thanks for watching gents.
