Re: 1981 GMC Jimmy

This evening I removed the engine and transmission. I slipped the Tahoe transfer case from the Tahoe onto the TH350 and it fit like a glove. Next on the list is to drop the fuel tank and when it warms up I will pull it outside and pressure wash the frame in order to prep it for paint.

Re: 1981 GMC Jimmy

I got around to dropping the fuel tank but I had to remove the receiver hitch and then the bumper first. No pictures of the Jimmy but here are a few of my "Rescue Vehicle." The second pic is what he had to do to fix his window motor. The third is a fix for a loose mirror, which didn't work. The fourth is the wire that feeds the electric fuel pump that he added after removing and discarding the RH tank. The last is how to install a trailer plug when you don't have access to the right size drill bit.

Re: 1981 GMC Jimmy

I question the window motor repair story because of what the other side of the door looks like. Second pic is the home made gooseneck hitch and the last picture is a nice view of Flat Head lake.
