Been here a couple weeks now. Really like the threads. Don't hate me, I have an 81 GMC C1500. Same truck as the Chevy C-10 just more information in these forums. I live in Texas. Just slowly working on the truck as I drive it. I had to change the 250 or 4.1 L 6 cyl out as soon as I got it. The exhaust manifold was crap and with the integral intake manifold makes the unit hard to find. Not to mention I think this engine was leaking oil from day 1! I put another 250 6 cyl in it. Had the transmission, a 350 Lockout, rebuilt and all back together and running fine just wish I had more power. Had to replace all of the brake componets and totally flush the system. Make sure you let the parts counter know you have manual brakes or you will get the wrong unit!
So I am back on the road with new brakes and amazing stopping power just takes me 5 minutes to get to highway speed! LOL!

Look forward to interacting.
