    just getting started on my 1950 3/4 ton. The original engine was replaced with a 292 that needs rebuilt. Other than that its pretty much all there.
    Looking for any and all suggestions. Looking to improve the drivability

    Depends on your definition of drivability. Your truck will be equipped with a 4.57:1 rear gear (5.14 was an option), so highway speeds are out.

    That’s what S10 five speeds are for

    Tell me more. I'm interested in a frame swap as that seems to be what allot of people are doing. My concern is that this being a 3/4 ton am I in over my head cuz most references for a frame swap are for half ton pickups.
