    What did you do with your GMT400 today...or yesterday....

    @dbrannon79 That will be an interesting exercise. I dont quite remember which unit I had that had an assist cylinder instead of the assisted gearbox. Seems most likely a 1976 GMC with the 305 E V6.

    Get the book and a set of basic hand tools. It is all nuts and bolts. Figure the matter with the components of the good body. Engine, transmission, etc. swap over those components from Your unit. See how it runs and drives from there. Might not need to go any farther. If it does okay then pull...

    A friend and an excellent body man, paint is perfect. He wanted a Dodge one ton dually crew cab. Dodge did not make a CC back then so He took two regular cabs abd built him one. He used some kind of a rhino liner material and did it in red with yellow flames. Man that thing looked nice. I seen...

    6.5 over heating

    All of this hot weather, got a fully functional cooling system on the truck and here I set and lay around, I dont think it would be a good idea to go out driving around with just a couple of flimsy stainless steel screws holding me together. 🐈💨 😹😹😹

    What did you do with your GMT400 today...or yesterday....

    Yeah, drilling off the hinge half would be only if the bushing bores of the hinge plates is totally hogged out and would no longer hold a bushing. Be nice if a bushing bore shim kit was made so the bores could be enlarged, a bushing pressed in and then the original bushings could be used.

    What did you do with your GMT400 today...or yesterday....

    This was/is a terrible design. There is dimples in the hinges at the approximate location where the spot welds holds them on. Drill all the way through hinge and body. A 3/8ths bit IIRC BUT I am not sure on that size. Then I use one of those good old fashioned Snap On gasket scraper that has the...

    I forgot to get pics of the folded hoist. I use bolts that are way way too long, so that the shank of the bolt extends through the bearing surfaces, saw off the extra threads and all is nice and well.

    Is there a magic fuel or oil additive?

    Here is some stuff that might help, after using the rislone to get the rings, etc, loosened back up and maybe some scuffing on pistons and cylinder walls sort of filled in a little. If You try this stuff, do it after the other engine treatments. This moly lube builds platelets onto surfaces. If...
