Re: Project "Schrum" 1959 Gmc 100

Did you try to fit the air cleaner on the carb? If the air cleaner and distributor came off a Chevrolet engine they may not fit a GMC.

Re: Project "Schrum" 1959 Gmc 100

Put the Original Air Breather on

The truck wants to crank but won't

I've put new Spark plugs in
New Coil
New wires


Could the coil be hooked up wrong? Because I've done it before
I'll try tomorrow

Took out the indicator bulbs to replace with new ones to see if they'll work

Re: Project "Schrum" 1959 Gmc 100

Yes I put fuel in it Coral, please no smart responses

I might as well get a new Tail light wiring, because its been spliced etc.. shorts out on the right side and left side works, but looks bad.

Bought another Distributor to replace the one in mine, it came out of a 235 engine. Trying to get it cleaned up..

Re: Project "Schrum" 1959 Gmc 100

So was there much rust in the fuel tank? Did you get it installed or are you still using the plastic tank? Just asking for us so we know the fuel supply situation.

Re: Project "Schrum" 1959 Gmc 100

I bought my Air breather/Distributor from "Firetoys" '59 Apache.
Tomorrow I will soak the Distributor in Carb cleaner and paint it Gloss black..
Once I fiddle with the wiring, and get it started. I will see about buying some flexible fuel line to run down the cab to the hard line. The trucks progress it moving slowly but It'll get there

Check the ignition coil primary coil resistance by connecting an ohmmeter between the positive (Black wire) and negative (Green wire) terminals on the coil. The resistance should be 0.4 to 0.6 ohms.

Re: Project "Schrum" 1959 Gmc 100

Okay woke up this morning, switched the wires and it cranked right up
Major fuel leaks around the the new inline fuel filter.. I push the choke in and it dies, I am thinking the Timing and tuning is way off. I get my paycheck today so Im going to buy better(smaller) hose for the fuel lines.

Re: Project "Schrum" 1959 Gmc 100

Fuel went everywhere when I cranked it up. I wish someone was closer to help me out

I have tuned it a little. I just need to let my local mechanic have a look at it and see if he can get it running better..Because its starting to really really piss me off

Don't get to discouraged.
You got it to start and that's 90% of it right there. Getting it running smoothly shouldn't be that bad now.

Re: Project "Schrum" 1959 Gmc 100

You can isolate the circuit by running a jump from the positive battery terminal directly to the hot side of the coil (side that does not go to the distributor). Starter circuit will turn it over to get started. If it runs fine and does not quit start looking for loose bad wires. If still dies then in the coil/distributor - Orrie's wise words


Well it is raining today so I am not going to be able to work on the truck. I am planning to buy a smaller fuel hose to put on the Hard lines to stop the leaks... When I fix that, I am going to try to get it running to pull over to my mechanic(across the street) Hopefully he can fix all of the issues

Oil Reads 30
Temp Gauge, well its running over the line a hair? could it be because of the new Temp sending unit?

It runs but I can literally adjust the timing while its running..I need to get a rachet to it and tighten it down real good
