Older Chevy and GMC (20+ years) C/K Series Engines
I have a beautiful red and white stock 78 CHeyenne CK Camper spcl ww/ 3504blt &350Trans I found on ebay motors w/ 530 original miles when I bought it in Sept. Yea- I know. huh?! It is amazing for its age right down to the brand new bias plys.
I also have a *very fast* 78 Silverado single cab rblt 454(30K) dually camper spl that since moving it to the coast has become a rusty mess but the previous owner spent major some huge money on..
alcoas, step railing w lights, cab top lights, tailgate lights, Jacobs ign. electronics, Gear Vendors overdrive, put in a beaut '93 cloth split seat, all extra gauges, trans cooler, custom grill, class III hitch.. you name it.
There are many interchangeable things I will put on the 78 but I have some questions about the ignition system.
<><>>As the 87 is fuel inj and has electronic (first yr?) distributor, will the Jacobs system come across? I know that it would if it was electronic ignition on both. But it is not. Can I pic a brain or two here ? Thank you.
<><><Also will the gear vendor overdrive come over with out major expense? Wheel base and motor size questions come to mind.
Overall wanting to decide whether to just put this up on ebaymotors. Would be a haul for the price it will fetch due to the body rust.
Apprec. any help
