yes the truck is ready. boxed the frame and will be a roll cage built into the process. kinda pre runner truck with some haulin capabilities. dana 70 rear and everything will be chromoly axles. lots of nice little pieces coming together slowly. hoping to get truck to paint this weekend. still got some issues with a back door thats kickin my azz. bodywork is a pain. not my speciality but can do decent work. truck was kind of a basket case but worth saving. persistance will prevail. happy with the engine but thinking I will go bigger cam down the road?

this old truck is gettin updated. nice engine and other mods. the suspension has 2010 superduty leafs and will have a gooseneck setup also. pulled front leafs out and upgraded to a coil suspension. deaver coilsprings and many other upgrades. zf tranny overdrive in old iron. gonna be updating the interior also with some moder seats and whatever i can find. the 2009 rear seats look like they can fit with some fab work also. gonna go with vintage air for AC and heat down the road. she'll be a cruiser and one of a kind. this truck will get used and driven often and not a show pony. this is a wyoming mountain truck. got some axle upgrades happening also.

Sorry I've been away for so long. Just catching up on the old posts.

Filled 4V's.....   Shocked      Am surprised there has been no comments from the gallery....

I was thinking the same thing. Unfortunately I don't think port matching or port stuffing necessarily translates to an increase in power. I'd rather spend my hard earned $$ elsewhere.

Any updates Wyo 4x4?  How's the weather over there in Sheridan?

You don't have any pics of Tim's #1 cam bearing installed, do you?  I want to make sure mine is right, seems weird that one of the oil holes uncovers the oil passage going to the distributor gear.

Looks like he's used devcon?    I like to give any port filling a coat of POR fuel tank sealer as a prevention against fuel attacking the filler over time..... seems to work well. 

I will speak up here!  I am not questioning anyones work or what they feel works, (in this case prot stuffer)

 I will add this; I am friends with one of the best Cleveland head Guru's around.  His knowledge goes back to the early days of the Cleveland heads with Dyno Don and Ford Motor Company.  I will never forget his quote "Never let a Chevy Guy near a Cleveland head, they will screw them up"  Cleveland heads will not repsond well to a normal port job and most people who try and prot them end up ruining the flow characteristics. 

Cleveland heads can work very well they way they are, and even better with minor cleanup!  CAMSHAFT IS VERY IMPORTANT AND TOO MANY GUYS SCREW THIS UP TOO. 

I wish I knew more about clevelands when I was younger, I would have built nothing but Cleveland base motors.  Its nice having a friend around with the history and knowledge on Cleveland heads.

What works on an inline head or even a Chevy, will Never work on a Cleveland!  So, I guess I dont understand the port stuffers, when I see stock Celveland heads run extremely well without them!

I applaud the effort here for the whole truck. The work looks great.

I am an old Cleveland guy, but I only got to build a couple of them. I did collect some parts in the mid 80's, including a 69 Mustang I wanted to create a Boss 408 for.

That didn't happen, but I do still have most of the parts. I have a 400 block with four bolt mains(Milodon) and screw in freeze plugs(the project). The shop closed and somehow the crank got lost. Back then there was no choice for rod bolts, only Pioneer made a set. 400 bolts were the longest of any engine, and SPS did not make them. So I have polished stock rods with bushed ends for heavy TRW 351C pistons, and Pioneer bolts.

I chose a 351 Torker intake for mine, and of course guessed at a cam(still new in the box(Crower 236/242)). I have Weiand intake adapter plates, which didn't seem to fit very well. Any 351W stroker these days would beat a typical mild 400, but Cleveland heads can make a difference.

They have the best smallblock valve covers too.

Yes will be checking back in! Have a new truck to build! will start a new thread for that. I'm a truck guy, cars don't do so good in the winter on the mountain. Very pleased with my 408" learning the fast system and a few issues along the way but all is good.
