    I’m new to this forum and new to the square body truck scene in a whole. I currently have a new project that I plan on beginning restoration on very soon. The truck is in pretty bad condition, but I plan to begin restoration beginning this month or next month. The only known mechanical issue with the truck is the fuel tank selector valve is stuck on one tank and a new one will be ordered. But i’m unsure if it’s a 3 port or 6 port selector valve.

    Not an expert, but it should be a 6 port like my 83. I got a replacement from napa. Post some pics when you get a chance.

    Big block one ton sounds like fun.
    Wish I had one!
    Pointers or helpful tips?
    Gotta be Legit..
    I'm sure we can think up some.
    Hold up a minute, I got one.
    To see what have you have
    done
    Is fun
    for some
    not everyone
    Cares where they came from
    but I wish I would have taken more
    Pix from before
    Rather than after
    Present not as important as the
    latter
    In future matters.
