Jerry, you are absolutely correct - " one-twelfth turn" is exactly what it says. I'd love to blame my glasses, but I can't. Thanks Jerry, you've been a big help.

N8dawg: not sure if this would work for you on your 47 1st 3800 long bed but on my 48 I used 2 Pontiac Fiero tanks parallel to the driveshaft (I wanted to reserve the space behind the rear axle for my spare). The Fiero tanks are long and skinny, 10

What does one run into if the vehicle is registered with engine sn. And has been changed over to another engine and not changed on the title? I guess this means a trip to the DMV to correct with numbers on door plate. Is this a correct assumption on

There shouldn't be a hornet's nest created, the title matches the truck now, so everything is legal. I would just want to get the title off of the engine number so it can be replaced without issues at a later date...to me it would be worth the call..

An option on a 300 series GMC was a 5.43 single speed, but they are not very plentiful. I wold suggest finding a complete 2 speed out of a 350 series and just locking it in high range. It will run as fast as you have hp to pull it.

Hy Super55, I like the system drawings you linked but I find the Domec pictures to be too small. I assume his bracket will move the booster/master cylinder towards the rear of the truck and down below the centerline of the frame this will allow the s

Not sure on the current weight because we removed the old water tank completely from it. It has the 248 engine and does have the external shaft for the 2 speed. Will try to get the teeth counted adapt.

Deve, you asked about sealers. Have you ever used Right-Stuff sealer? You can use it on very damaged sheet metal, like your pan and still get a good seal. Be warned, you will probably bend the pan getting back off if needed. This stuff will seal a

exactly what that overly strong spring will cause. Since they are making them so nothing can escape, they made a monster. If the spring was very weak (1/10 psi check valve)a full tank in a cold condition would suck in air as the gas contracted. The

I had the same experience last summer. The truck would actually start running very rough and wouldn't idle. When I removed the gas cap, I could hear that air rush in. I've also taken the same approach as Jim. Without the spring on the 'vented' ga

Yeah, the service manual says to back it off 1/12 inch ( 30 degrees). I think the 30 degrees is easier to estimate and that's what i plan to do. Thanks to all who've responded. Ronnie

Mike, there is some good reading here.... http://www.usradiator.com/cores I think this will answer your questions. Cooling also depends on the fan, how high/low it is on the radiator, and whether or not a shroud is used.
