    The Powermaster 9052 starter for 6.2 and 6.5

    There's no sticker for a ground wire from the front post on the new starter. I had no plans to add anything that wasn't already there. I was surprised the two wires are in such different locations from the OEM starter, but it looks like I'll have plenty of wire for both. There is no nose cone...

    A/C part for easing clutch engagement

    I recall a recommendation for an electronic part that did something upon A/C clutch engagement which, if I recall correctly, allowed a softer engagement or something of the sort. I'm 99% sure it was WarWagon that recommended it and it was for the later style trucks with 4.8, 5.3, 6.0 that had...

    The Powermaster 9052 starter for 6.2 and 6.5

    I got one of these starters off of Leroy. On Sunday, I had planned to move my truck over into the shop, from where I last parked it a few weeks ago. As it turns out, my batteries had given up the ghost. Two attempts from my CTEK didn't bring them back to life this time. Two new MTP-78...

    Thanks N8. Leroy, I don't see it listed on your site. Did I miss the starter?

    The Powermaster 9052 starter for 6.2 and 6.5

    I'm about to order a Powermaster starter (I think I said that years ago, too) and read reviews mentioning replacing the main bolts and having trouble with the stud on the front for the support bracket. Someone even mentioned buying ARP bolts and spacing them, which I'm not a fan of spacers...

    Walbro lift pump

    I believe I bought a fitting to adapt to my OEM lines - thinking it was a product Leroy sells. The supply line just loops around and into the feed side of the pump.

    95' C3500 Radio illumination repair

    1 Factory Radio seemed like a reputable place when I had spoken with them in the past. There is a place in Wichita that I believe to be crooks, called The Radio Shop. It cost me +$100 to have them look at the radio to tell me they didn't know if the CD player worked or not and to tell me it...

    Drivetrain differences between trucks equipped with 454 vs. 6.5

    In continuing to consider swapping transmissions, I was wondering if this would be a reasonable option for me to consider. Computer difference, I'm sure, but are there other things to consider if I am interested in swapping my 4L80E for a NV4500 in my '95? The idea is to end up with two...

    Thermostat crossover option.

    Does this work similar to a Balance Flow system, but just with a thermostat?

    6.5L '97 to '00 Air box assembly?

    I can get you a cost on shipping if you would like, but I'll need an address or zip code. Send me a private message if that works better for you.

    I was sleeping and missed this one. It was an hour from me and almost the exact truck I have been looking for again, since I'm getting the itch again for a transmission swap. If any others come up like this, I think I'd be on it like white on rice.

    HVAC control module / ABS / Brake Light problems

    Well, I figured I should report back on this. After searching for an obvious ground issue, I found no joy. I tried grounds, batteries, etc. It sat for the winter and when I fired it up in the spring, I had the same issue - it had been intermittent in the past. It stayed like this for several...

    Smoking pmd

    Jr5150, To rule out the fuel issue you suspect, you should be able to bypass operate the lift pump to push the fuel to the injectors. With my '95, I can pull a relay and cross two terminals to operate, but I can't remember if your '96 is the same way. (truthfully, I have one of Leroy's...

    6.5L '97 to '00 Air box assembly?

    GM has some left, but they're discontinued and pricey. I would suggest making one if fab work is in your wheelhouse. I'm not even 100% sure it is necessary as tight as everything sits in there, but I would probably install one if it was mine.

    6.5L '97 to '00 Air box assembly?

    I bought a later model air box assembly from a member a number of years ago and it has been sitting in the box since then. It was supposed to be an upgrade for increased air flow, from the '92-'96 design with the flat filter. I'm not going to use it and I don't know what I gave for it. I...
