74k20

just bought one not my first chevy but what are your thoughts as to what i should do to it. it has rust wich isnt a problem, its just work. ummm i dunno im pretty sure its going to become a tow rig so what cam/ intake do you recomened as well as carb and heads tho the heads will be down the line a bit. oh its a small block with a four speed and a 203 guessing a rebuilt stock carb will be fine. ? any one have anythign similar and have pictures of it?

We have all owned one of those at some point. Be more specific about what you want it to be and we can provide more specific advice.

well do any of you have dedicated tow rigs? what are some of the neat things you have done with them as far as making a haul more comfortable? i konw a single cab kindof defeats the purpose of that but ya? oh also if i have the small 14boltff drums can i fit a steel 15" wheel on them?

ya somewhere i heard that some of the early years like right after the eaton rear end chevy used hade smaller drums. so far i know of two factory styles or well not styles but differences one where the drum has the studs pressed through it into the hub and another where it is sandwhiched between the wheel and the hub, both are big tho and i have also heard that you cant fit a 15" wheel over them. really this is going to be one of those thigns that ill just have to check when i get the pile.
