First off, WELCOME to the Stovebolt community.
As this is your 1st post as a new member, not sure if you are aware you can post pictures of your truck in your posts (up to 10 in each post) to give folks a better idea of what you have going on.
If you need help with posting pictures, click here: Picture posting guide
As always, we invite new members to post in our Welcome Centre
and tell us a bit about you and your truck.
As far as your question goes, this would be better asked in The HiPo Shop forum
as this type of change is considered a modern modification/upgrade to your '56 1 ton.
You can also search the site for previous conversations/posts about this topic. See "Searching the Site" in the left margin of this page for the gateway to such searches.
Others should be along soon to provide some further guidance and maybe share their experiences.
