J10 questions

Picking up my 1979 J10 Saturday. There are a few issues that I want to address eventually.
First of all, what is the wheel pattern of the D44? 6 on 6?
It still has the 2 barrel on the 360, what would be a effective 4 barrel and intake? It has the RV cam in it.
Anywhere I can find the vac line breakdown for the Quadratrac?
What is the going price for a good, solid tailgate?

Thanks,
Jeremy

It is 6 on 5.5 like a GM for the wheel bolt pattern.

Edelbrock performer manifold and carb are a good combo for that.

Good solid tailgate, $200-500

Thank you, sir! I will assume you are going to be my go-to guy in this section?


Is it worth it to swap from the stock intake/carb? Any power gains to be made with full headers or just leave it all alone and just drive the damn thing?

The intake and carb will make better power. If the budget is there, a Howell EFI would be your best bang for the buck.

Headers, YES. A lot of people will tell you that the stock manifolds make more power but every rig that we have done Thorley headers to have come alive, a lot.

But my recommendation would be to drive it for now, figure out what you want and go from there.

As for wheels, avoid '88 or newer Chev 4x4 (2wd is okay) rims because the offset will hit your steering!
