    Hi Everyone,
    I think this website is cool a lot of great info. I have a 1983 K10 and I have had it sence I was 16 and I am 25 now. It has a 305 with a manual 4-speed and 308 gears but it does has some power believe it or not but I think that is only due to the transmission being so low geared but I am not sure. I have a problem with the holes from the transmission to the hogs head. They are stripped out and I am not sure if I should get them retapped or can I get a steel hogs head and if I can where can I get one ? I haven't had the four bolts in it for about five years and I think it is time I get it fixed. I would appericiate any help I can get. I also was thinking about jacking the truck up but I would like to see a pic of a 1973-1987 chevy K10 wit a 6" lift with 33" tires so I can see if it will look right you can e-mail me pics at

    thanks for any help you can give.....................................

    hogs head?
    if your talking about the bellhousing, take it to a local welding shop and have the holes closed up a bit and retapped. or just get a new/used one.

    FYI, I have 33" tires on my 85 4x4 and it doesn't have any lift. Looks real good too! 33" is the largest tire you can put on without lifting it.

    If you just want the Tires For Looks the 33"s should work stock but if you plan on doing any wheeling w/ the truck they will rub when the truck flexes.
