Re: 1977 Chevy Silverado half ton Suburban help!

My only concern would the integrity of the engine. The other stuff sounds like lack of maintenance. Even with the engine possibly going south, it would depend on your checkbook, commitment to a project and if it is worth it to you.

On another note, I just had a customer tow in his 84 K10 with a 6.2 turbo diesel that I think blew the engine oil cooler that is inside of the radiator and in doing so blew out the heater core. There is engine oil dripping out of the heater box. I've been working on this truck for the past 15 years. This may be the breaker for him, he gave me a 1000.00 dollar budget to fix it. Could be a head gasket, who knows yet.
