The rear suspension consists of hair pins, coilover shocks and a pan hard bar. This is easy to adjust and should be a very stable system. The coilovers are chrome as are the hairpins, this is a hotrod and chrome counts.

Here's the last picture for the day, an overall look at the stance and look of the chassis.

Thanks for the detailed buildup. The c series trucks make the sweetest looking rods. Yours is even cooler with binder power.

I have to say, I love the travelette you have too. It seems we May have somewhat parallel collections, but I dont have any ls 1 scouts.

Thanks for being so detailed in the build thread.

Regards,
john

So I went over to a friends shop, he did a bunch of the chassis fab on my 34. I guess he got the harvester bug also. Here is a picture of his project, it will have a pick up bed and be running super singles 18" wide on the rear. He has the frame built for it and it will be on air bags also. Just having the detroit diesel and the 13 spd transmission will make this a hell for pulling a trailer.

You can see how much he dropped the frame in this picture.

Here you see how much he has dropped the frame for the old school leaf springs and how beefy his hand made frame is.

Well the chrome shop finished up the last of the parts I had sent over. It's like Christmas opening the box when it arrives here's a peek before I get them installed.

I have never tried this before, so I have a 50 ton press in my shop and I pressed a water pump apart. I then sent it out for chrome, I plan on getting a new pump and use the new parts going back together.

C'mon jetfxr, you only gave 3 minutes to be able to answer the q- I knew what they were when I saw them, but only because I own a 36 that had them on it. what did you find for the t bolts/thumb screws to cinch them down? I had to create my own, but they arent correct- just functional.

Are you going to chrome the windshield frame? My friend has a 34 c-30 that had a chrome frame originally. It is beyond cool, but needs a complete restoration.

Great looking parts by the way. Wish I had duplicates of all of them...

You need the bearing and seal right? You can get the parts you need from a rebuilder. I rebuild all of my own pumps and the most you'll pay for parts is $20-25. Gotta place by me if you are interested. Can put you the info and you can call.
Iirc they use a unit bearing and seal common to GM.
