Hello BC Bolters
This is Geoff here in Vernon, BC, and I am a new member, as well as new to vehicle restoration. I have just bought a 52 Chev Panel truck, which has been on my bucket list since spending a summer touring around southern Ontario in my friend Dan’s 52 Panel in 1973. It is currently a driver, but it will require serious attention come the spring, and although it is completely stock, and was a summer driver for the previous owner in Calgary for 35 years, it is time for a serious look at the drive train. It has a 261 with a 235 high compression head, and still has the torque tube rear end. I am weighing options about S 10 running gear, and would like to hear from anyone about their experiences or advice concerning some torque tube options. I intend to keep the Panel pretty much stock, and am also researching the “bolt-on” disc brake options that appear to be available, as well as any other improvements that will bring the truck into the 21st century highway speeds.
Cheers.....Geoff in Vernon

Support those brave men/women who stand the "Thin Blue Line" and lock up those on the wrong side of that line.
