Hey all I'm looking for and free advise I can get, so I'm going to start a build thread in hopes of tapping into the bank of knowledge floating around here.

the Build: 1967 Chevy C10 that was on a k5 Blazer frame.

Axles: 2005 Dana 60 from an F350, 14 bolt with disk brake conversion.

Engine: 89 Cummins 6bt

Trans: for now will be a 727

Transfercase: Divorced Dana 24 soon to be changed to a 203/205 doubler.

Again any help is welcomed.

I have been involved with several Cummins builds. I hope you don't plan on using the factory engine mounts that came on that engine. They won't last.

However, the factory mounts from a 94-98 12 valve work great. In the Dodge pickup they are different from side to side, but the right side (driver side) will fit either side and comes straight off the block. These engine mounts work very well and last forever and by using the right side mount on both sides of the engine your mounting tabs will be symmetrical.

The 727 trans is not the best trans, but it can be improved. ATS Diesel in Colorado builds about the best 727. I have one from them and it worked flawlessly after I had them rebuild it. For off-road, I would strongly suggest keeping the t-case divorced, because the tail stock of the 727 won't hold up to the pounding with the weight of the t-case hanging from it. I guess you could build some sort of mount for the t-case if you did mate the two together.

I haven’t had a chance to do much until today but here’s a little progress and some new toys I was able to get.

Thanks for the info on the mounts I hadn't looked at those yet, as far as the trans I'm planning on building a turbo 400 when I can get the power level up :)

A turbo 400 will definitely handle the power you throw at it, but diesel engines destroy torque converters. So make sure you invest in a good one.
