Re: 1970 GMC Suburban... for the family

Funny story... I have two wallets... one I carry, one I keep all my rarely used cards in...

For the past few weeks, every time my wife would ask me if I had any cash, I would check the one I carry and say "no". Well, today, since we were going to the Pediatricians office for the minions I grabbed the other wallet and handed it to my wife. While waiting in the room for the DR my wife is organizing my wallet and exclaims "Whoa! Babe! I thought you said you didn't have any cash!" (I am thinking she is messing with me) Of course I reply "I don't!" Next thing I know she is pulling a WAD of cash out of my wallet! Where the frick did that come from! (I still don't remember!) Well, needless to say, my senility bought me some much needed parts for the burb and momma a new double jogging stroller.

So I already have a parts list for the next time I go to the Doctors... and some updates and pictures will be here tomorrow!

Re: 1970 GMC Suburban... for the family

Dirty


More silicone than Hollywood


Clean


Locked and loaded
Gonna play with the contact pattern a little more tomorrow, I'm not 100% satisfied with it yet.


Initial shim pack at 0.020"... It looks like 0.025" will dial it in perfect

I Forgot to bring my torque wrenches home to finish the axle up. I also need to find my wheel studs. I cant find them anywhere!

Some swear by them, I swear at them! just think what damage one of those silicone beads could do to a ring and pinion! I will take a picture of how much I use on the cover... And it WILL SEAL! You can see I have NONE squeezing out of the pinion carrier pictured above... also I think my M1008 thread has another picture of one done right.

Eventually I will post the pictures of the clear RTV that was sealing some of the holes in the body! I'm not complaining about that one though... it DID keep SOME water out. I have had these disc brackets forever! I was going to use them on my 96 SAS rig, but they wouldn't clear the springs!

Glad you are following along! I'm hoping to have some sweet updates by the end of next week!

Here are some of my targets for these next two weeks:

Finish the 14 bolt (there's a surprise ending to this one!)
See what Chris has for doors
Get the C-pillar tacked in

If you get this I would love to get a close look at it. The 348/409 block is rare! Real neat camper. Hope you get it.

Re: 1970 GMC Suburban... for the family

I hope the reserve isn't too high. And if you do get it and need engine parts I have a V6 that doesn't run but is complete. Very odd engine if you study it close.

Re: 1970 GMC Suburban... for the family

Well it already went over my price range and the reserve isn't met yet, but, MAN! That color scheme ROCKS!!!! I am gonna have to do my research on it now, because I have never seen that silver (or grey) and that yellow (green?) together. And I know GMC had some wacky combos!

Be very careful, you get a C/30 and 1/2 ton pickups will never feel or look the same again.

You know a man has not lived until he has jumped in a dually pickup and drug a trailer down the road haulin something somwhere.

I have over a million miles behind me in big trucks, wreckers, and pickups pulling trailers, still want more. Its a sickness.

Thus I say, stay away. Or forever those 1/2 and 3/4 ton trucks shall appear weak and flacid!!!

Re: 1970 GMC Suburban... for the family

Not a 1 Ton, but it is a dually!

It is nice towing with a dually though! Especially with a Goose neck or 5th wheel!



For a height reference, that is me in the green jeans at 6'2"!
