    Engine lunched itself...need advise

    In theory, yes. But, the first time you get the "bwaaahhh" of the secondaries opening, that thought gets thrown behind the seat for emergency use only. :evillol:

    I broke my new truck

    PW issues also can be the wiring in between the door and the body.

    I broke my new truck

    Use a test probe...honestly, get a mechanic. Will be worth the money in your case.

    I broke my new truck

    Time to grab a good meter and start testing points off the wiring schematic. If you don't know how to test electrical wiring, better off having someone that knows what they are doing or you make a bigger mess.

    Yep, never seen anything about LED's. Hackers are their own worst enemies, lol.

    Engine lunched itself...need advise

    My 383 stroker snapped the crank off right behind timing gear in a wedge so that it could still turn over but ran like total dog turd. Only thing that kept it in place enough to run was gear drive and aluminum timing cover. Drove the thing 20 miles home with a car trailer behind after that...

    I broke my new truck

    Something I found that is related to dash lights... Switch the running lights ON with the dash lamp dimmer rotated all the way counterclockwise. Use a test light clipped to a verified good ground to probe both sides of the Instrument Lamps (INSTR LPS) fuse. If both sides of the INSTR LPS...

    I broke my new truck

    Curious, when you removed/installed cluster was the battery unhooked? Possible you popped a fuseable link out to the starter. Another thing I would check is plugs on back of cluster, if not seated right might have a missing connection through? Also, check the harness plugs on the column for the...

    455 Olds not lining up well in 76 GMC crew....

    I've done offset motor mount plates before...either on the block or on the crossmember using 1/2" plate steel. Have to watch out for exhaust manifold placement though when you do that.

    Bvllsh!t on craigslist.

    https://spokane.craigslist.org/pts/d/coeur-alene-blazer-chalet-orphan-shell/7325217459.html Seems like a bit much, but probably rare so the right person I suppose would want it. Figured I would post it here for kicks. Not mine, lol.

    1977 K5 3000$ OBO!!

    Interesting that the spare is mounted there blocking airflow to the radiator.

    SBC valve lash?

    I don't know how many, but chevy used solids in some industrial, truck and boat applications too. The carb kit for my '63 283 says it's a boat carb, no clue if it's original or not. Honestly don't remember really seeing specs for an 097 or a 30-30 cam, just "no lash specified". Probably why I...

    SBC valve lash?

    The rough specs I used on my '63 C30. https://www.chevytalk.org/fusionbb/showtopic.php?tid/291290/ Biggest thing to me was always doing a cold lash then hot lash check, and prefer to do non-running check, but still have my custom pealed back top chevrolet script covers and rocker clips, lol.

    Ford Trash Talk Thread lol

    That would be snow getting into the fins of the radiator, melting then freezing and stopping air flow through. Done that so many times with my plow truck, had to put a piece of cardboard in front so snow wouldn't get in there...and had to put a section of signboard under the radiator area or...

    Looking into a new compact car.

    My stable includes 2 '75 Monza Towne coupes california editions with the factory 350 and one is a 4 speed, and a '76 Monza Towne coupe cali edition with the 305 v8, all factory, with tilt and a/c in all 3. As I'm sure you know, anything upwards of 200RWhp on these babies causes a lot of work...

    Looking into a new compact car.

    While I am a diehard Chevy guy for life, I am also a cheap bastard...in order to save money for my Chevy projects, drive slow, cheap piles with awesome MPG when I can. My metro for instance while slow as hell, driving it as a work car runs me 7 gallons of gas a week vs my Dodge Ram using 30...

    No Spark, No clue...

    Not a fan of the cheap dizzy. Have yet to have one last for more than 2 years before falling apart. Got in the habit of getting a $5 dizzy out of wrecking yard and rebuilding it, adding the goodies I want to it...may cost more in the end, but worth not having to mess with it again.

    No Spark, No clue...

    Here is a decent test sheet for HEI if it helps. https://www.gmcmi.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/HEI-Testing.pdf Didn't see a mention, but did you check the carbon button in the cap? I've had that fall out before after a coil change, never did figure out why, just installed another one and was...

    No Spark, No clue...

    Doubtful, since no spark at plug stated. Maybe truck wants a big block?

    Totally out there question, but does the distributor actually turn when motor cranked?

    Looking into a new compact car.

    Yeah, been doing some research and came to same conclusion. Think I'm going to do back to original idea and find me a 2002-2003 Jetta TDI wagon 5 speed manual. I know several people that had the wagon setup and consitantly can get mid 50's for mpg, something about gearing and aerodynamics. I...

    Looking into a new compact car.

    Another downside of electric/hybrid stuff here in washington state is that they passed a law so electric vehicles have a yearly $150 tax on tabs and hybrids have a $75 tax/year on tabs. The hybrid tax is BS the way they worded it saying it was needed to fund all the charging stations throughout...

    Looking into a new compact car.

    For the ultimate cheap mileage beater, honestly can't beat an old geo metro. I've got a 94 and a 96, 3 doors, 1.slow L 3 cylinder, 5 speed, 96 has obdII so hooked an ultragauge up to it and has air bags, just putting to work and back going slow I get 43 with that one, hypermile it on the hwy can...

    Looking into a new compact car.

    I'm looking at slightly used (2018) Kia Niro hybrid. I really wanted a manual, but at the fuel mileage coming out of that thing, I think would have to not care.
