Not quite new introduction. I joined the forum about a year ago but, have been viewing various threads for about a year and a half. I'm an original owner of a 1975 GMC K25 High Sierra. I purchased the truck off a dealer lot 49 years ago this month. It had been used initially as a work truck then as time went by mostly for hauling materials and towing various trailers. For the past thirty years it has been a farm truck with the added role of snowplowing. It has rarely been stored inside and suffered the effects of the central Idaho weather.

Beginning spring of 2023 I started a long needed deferred maintenance and restoration project with the help of this forum. To date I restored cab heat, addressed the leaking cowl seam that rotted out the driver floor, replaced the driver floor, installed new cab flooring, replaced a very leaky PS gear, installed new valve cover gaskets, installed new cab mounts, refurbished the original grill, purchased a donor vehicle for fenders and bed. Most of this work I would not have attempted had it not been for this forum. Additional work has been put on hold until spring. Cab corners, body work on replacement bed and repaint are planned projects.

Thanks for this informative forum, as I continue the project I'll be watching for ideas and suggestions.

Hello and welcome on your belated introduction. I too have a High Sierra but a '76 K15. I'll have it rebuilt one year soon maybe.

Welcome form the Idaho/Oregon border. I have a 75 K20 that I bought new. Are you in Grangeville?
idahovette: I am in Grangeville, been here for over 30 years. I see you're from Weiser. Any good sources for part truck down that way?
