Re: What did you do yo your truck today??

Fixed the Axle vent on my 2000 Z71. It rotted off and was plugged. So I built a new one at the 1/2" fill plug.

In the process on installing an 6.0 along with the tranny from a 2002 Escalade. Sticking with the stock X-Case from a 95' Tahoe.

Re: What did you do yo your truck today??

Dropped a new GM crate motor into my 98 Hoe after the original motor suffered a "thermal event" when my radiator cap failed at freeway speeds in triple digit heat. As a nod to history, the new crate engine was painted in Hanger Orange.

Re: What did you do yo your truck today??

Verified that the knocking sound in the engine of my 1990 C1500 is most definitely coming from the bottom end ��
Spun a bearing I think, on the hunt for a swap engine as I don't have time to rebuild right now.

Put on a new grille, changed headlights and marker lights back to OEM, added hir1 and hir2 bulbs, new driver side exterior and interior door handle, and installed a heavy duty headlight harness with the 4hi option that was made by gmachinz.

Re: What did you do yo your truck today??

I did nothing to the 91, it's pretty much parked for the winter.

I did see that there is a transmission fluid leak and the idler arm is starting to go out. So I'll order some parts and fix it in the spring.

Re: What did you do yo your truck today??

Swapped the cheap fuel pump in the dually to an ACDelco unit, ran a compression test on the 99 ccsb to see if I could get away with just intake gaskets, answer is no! Also did some wetsanding to my non 88-98. 😁

Re: What did you do yo your truck today??

I pulled the 91 off the road today. After 27 years and 236000km, it's finally getting some much needed TLC. The idler arm is going out on it and the pivot for the tilt is too lose to feel comfortable driving it. And the headliner is getting wet in heavy rain, so I think the windshield seal needs to be replaced. The original ball joints however are still tight, try that with a newer truck. So, I'm going to gut the interior, put in some much needed sound deadening, shampoo the carpet, pull the headliner and have it re-done (liner is sagging pretty back), fix the column and a few cracked panels and then put it all back to getting, good as new.
Going to go through the engine bay and clean up some old wiring that's no longer required and fix the powersteering bracket the previous owner cut, change the fluids and filters, and de-grease the engine and inner fenders.
After all the that and the idler arm, it'll be good for another 235k km lol... Still planning to paint it in 2021 when it turns 30 years old.
