    Hey @saabkyle04 what kind of paint did you use for the firewall? Is that truck bed coating?

    Patrick Bolmeyer

    Another stellar video Kyle! Thanks!

    Where do you get all of your torque specs from ?

    Kyle, you need to do a series of restoring a car such as a 1966-1970 Chevy Chevelle or a Dodge Challenger or a Ford Mustang during those same years. That would be great.

    Absolutely love the progress its definitely coming along my friend. One question and that's why didn't you repaint the firewall red over the coating.

    Cool, we had to do the rear end a few years ago too.

    Fantastic Kyle! โญ๏ธ


    You can NOT use the electric fuel pump with a carburetor! It supplies too much pressure and could blow out fittings. Carburetors need 5-7 psi of fuel pressure but fuel injection uses about 50 psi. Please heed my warning and don't use the electric pump.


    Damn dude…too long between updates…i love this project.

    Amazing how much you know! Do you ever miss pharmacy?

    Looks good and you do what makes you happy but a body colored firewall always looks better. Black is dark and drab unless the truck was black. You should have rolled the pinch weld at the firewall/floor for more clearance and beat the firewall back for your distributor clearance (but do it so it looks nice). Also I would never step back in time and replace fuel injection with a troublesome, never tuned quite right, hard to start cold, too rich or too lean carburetor for nothing. An LS swap would have been the best of both worlds! Easy to tune, easy to start, easy to change. All around better than a carbed small block anyday of the week. I have built 3 lowered v8 swapped S10's and one convertible s10 way back in the day. Also an S10 Blazer rear diff from maybe a 2000-2005 will have disc brakes and would be a great swap into your truck.


    Yet another great video. I am enjoying following this project.

    you're not supposed to paint the water seals

    Donald Long

    great video

    James Hall

    it looks great


    you are the best when I play cars I play like you. I am a huge fan

    Nice truck, I've done a few v8 s10s and love them. I am curious why you are putting so much time money and effort into it and still used a old flat tappet cam? I always use 88-93 tbi engines so they have the spider previsions drilled and tappet in the block. The amount of time it took to take the engine back apart and make sure all the metal was cleaned out when the last cam went flat i figured out a couple hundred more for roller was well worth it.

    Let's see this thing roast some tires when she's finished ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜


    Those Viggen logos on the tool box. I noticed

    Oshe Shango

    Umm…. I took a break from YouTube and Kyle literally looks like he joined a biker gang. LMAO

    Steven Crellin

    6:56 I could smell that stuff from through my phone.


    12:05 Thanks for the tip about the coolant in the thread, will come in handy when I need to change the water pump.
