Re: Silverado restoration in Finland

Yesterday I started a summer vacation, and we went to inspect (hope, this is correct word) the truck. It's been 12 years since last time. Now we have permission to drive by truck.
A few mistakes came to light as we drove the car on the road. The drive shaft keeps the sound and the engine is not adjusted correctly. The engine vibrates as it drives harder.

Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.
Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God!
It's scary when you start making the same noises as your coffee maker.

Re: Silverado restoration in Finland

We found out where the noise came from. Rear universal joint was bad. Now it's new and quiet.

Fuel injectors was also bad condition, but local diesel expert fix those fuel injectors. It was quite expensive, about $1000 (770€)!!! But now engine runs much better. We have to timing diesel injector pump yet.

Re: Silverado restoration in Finland

We have been on vacation and a lot has not happened. We have been driving a little bit truck and enjoying the summer! But a few photos from last few weeks.
1. Pic; We had two bad tailgate bands and the other one has now been repaired.
2, 3. Pic; Tailgate band in place.
4. Pic; We ordered new smaller license plates. Our cousin designed and ordered the license plate frames, hopefully we will get them soon.
5. Pic; My brother, his wife and boy on the road!
