hi I'm Tom, I just picked up a 65' c10 shortbed step side. Currently has a 292 from a 72' c10(I think) originally was the 262(I think again) and the 3 on the column and is currently my daily driver. I'm planning on going the SBC and 4 speed route eventually, both my wife and eventually my son will want to drive it and I don't think either of them have the body weight to push down the current clutch so hopefully the swap happens sooner than later. This is my first truck project, I'm usually drawn to the mopar B-bodies but I couldn't pass this truck up. That being said I'm sure I'll be on here a lot for gee-wiz stuff, I've read that the IL6-V8 swap isn't too tricky once you get the right motor mounts and brackets and stuff. Looking forward to learning from the c10 wizards on here. Thanks
Tom
