I\'m back...with projects this time.
So how is everyone? Between getting busy at college and a small software issue I kind of dropped out of the BBS.
Well I always whined about not having anything to work on, now my dad and I've got two trucks to work on. One is being parted out, the other is being rebuilt (sort of).
The first is an '85 K20 Silverado, it had a 6.2L diesel/th400/np208. Those were kept by the people we bought it from. It still has the 10bt and 14sf. Everything else was there though, all for $400.
As for the second truck, it's a '77 K15 Sierra Grande. Has a 400sbc/th350(I think, haven't verified)/np203/D44 & a 12bt. This thing fan decent enough when we got it, that is, it went down the road at 50mph and that's about all, not all the guages worked and the paint is pretty oxidized. The interior and under the hood were filthy. After a fwe hours with the preasure washer getting rid of all the dirt and oil, things didn't look to shabby. A complete tuneup on it proved to be interesting. Rebuilt the HEI distributor, did the plugs, wires, oil change, filters and all that. Come to find out that it had mismatched plugs as well as oddball wires. Got it all back together and this thing runs like a singer sewing machine. It sounds sa-weet. Fixed a few random oil leaks, as well as a fuel leak, and then we moved onto the interior. Which currently is down to the sheetmetal, all over the inside. This thing had a factory tach, which my dad forbade me from stealing for my truck, as well as cruise control. My dad and I have come to the conclusion that the person who owned it previously shouldn't own tools. Not only was the ignition system a mish-mash but there were more green wires randomly going places in the truck than on a John Deere tractor. A wiring diagram straightened that out. When it's done it'll have a rebuilt guage cluster, power windows and door locks (went to a junkyard, and spent some time on ebaymotors). Well I'm running out of time for the morning, I gotta run, more updates later.
