    Engine oil cooler hoses

    Yes! If I go that way I will make sure NO DORMAN. I would not want an oil line to blow or even leak.

    Engine oil cooler hoses

    Thanks Rickf. Yep, many people think I'm weird for wanting to keep my vehicles(trucks//cycles) as close to original as possible. However!!!!! that being said, going for the AN braided hose and anodized fittings is looking pretty good right now. I have been in aviation for 56yrs. and I'm very...

    Engine oil cooler hoses

    Thanks BillK and AuroraGirl. That looks like my oil filter adapter and oil cooler. The (2) Dorman hoses are for 4WD-won't work. I called LMC to have them measure the one line they sell. They replied this morning- the line is P/N: 32-1860 and is 39" to the 90 degree bend and 3.5" from the 90 to...

    Engine oil cooler hoses

    Searched for old threads on factory engine oil cooler hoses-found one from 2012. Poster did not find an answer. It's been 9 yrs. Anybody ever find a source for these hoses? Dorman only sells one of them. (625-617). I need the (625-616) also. Same goes for LMC. I need both hoses. I know I'm not...

    Plastic Vacuum lines

    This issue has probably been addressed before, but a GMSB search was unsuccessful. Is there a source for the small (1/8") plastic vacuum line on the firewall? It runs from a rubber hose connector to the passenger side firewall grommet into the cab and supplies vacuum for the vent actuators.

    cam change

    Thanks SquareRoot, I changed the cam 28 yrs. ago and I cut the vertical brace and welded it back in place when done. Been so long my memory took a walk!!!! Don't know why the Serv. manual said to raise engine. Thanks wazzadakka94 I will be cleaning the inside.

    It’s official, I’m a nerd

    Frankenchevy, I apologize if I offended you in any way. This is the "other" vehicle category and I should have contributed something positive or kept quiet. Please enjoy your EV and good luck.

    It’s official, I’m a nerd

    O.K.-So you make enough money to buy-in to this EV crap! Yes, I should have said- I.M.H.O. Subjectivity is over-rated. What are some of your "other" vehicles? You will wake up(4-6-8 hours?)to a fully charged vehicle. I'll fill the tank on my truck in 5 min. and be back on the road while you...

    cam change

    Thanks Ricko1966. I am going to have my A/C system emptied with a recovery unit. The engine has only 40,000 mi. All else is o.k. Last week the engine felt like it had a miss at idle. I changed spark plugs-no improvement. Wires all good. Removed rocked covers-ran engine-noticed #7 cylinder...

    cam change

    1987 R30/5.7 TBI Exhaust valve cam lobe on #7 cylinder worn off. Going to replace cam/lifters. My GM Service manual says to "Remove front engine mount bolts and raise engine"-but it does not say how high. Can't go very high or the rear of the engine will hit the firewall. Has anyone out there...

    It’s official, I’m a nerd

    Electric vehicles are over-rated and over-priced. Short-range and take too long to re-charge. Get rid of fossil fuel? Where the heck do you think the electricity comes from to charge you're lame electric car????

    Gas tank pressure - air rushes out when the the gas cap is unscrewed

    The only poster that is correct is SirRobyNO. On the 1987, each tank sending unit has (3) hose connections: pressure, return and tank vent. If you have dual tanks, the left and right tank vent hoses are next to the fuel tank selector valve on the R/H side on the inside frame rail. The lines...

    So Does Everyone HATE This Steering Wheel?

    Yep El Perdido!! Had a cover on my '85 for over 30 yrs. When it starts getting kinda funky I just put on a new one.

    So Does Everyone HATE This Steering Wheel?

    All this crying about sticky stuff on the factory steering wheel! Clean it! I'm sure your truck has bigger problems that need attention.

    Just finished a in tank fuel pump replacement job, not the easiest job to do by yourself

    I love it!!! Pulling bed is the best way to do tank work, in my opinion. Dropping the tank method is good if you have 16 gal. tanks, but 20 gal. tanks-my arm is not long enough to reach the hoses. I just finished installing new pumps/sending units in both of my tanks(20 gal.). I pulled the bed...
