Default Hello every one just joined

Hello I just moved over from OCN, I am just getting started on a 1970 GMC
1500 long bed, I will post some picks when I get some, it is complete right down to the o.e. 350 and 3 speed OD transmission, I will be converting it to front disc real soon.

I have been a diesel mechanic for more than 20 years so if any one needs help with that or anything else I will gladly help with any insight I might have

Welcome! Sounds like a fun project man. Those Silvys/Sierras(at least what they're called now) are such awesome trucks. Yours is proof.

Nice, bro! I'd take that any day.

I don't understand why everyone needs discs
