Do you have a 1954 Chevrolet Truck Shop Manual?

If you do, what instructions/etc has you stumped?

I'm glad I found this forum. I have alot of work ahead of me. I'm going to need alot of information to accomplish the work. Right now I'm recovering from passing out and falling, breaking my wrist and re breaking my ankle.
I have a 54 chevy 4400 flatbed, 54 chevy 3805 panel, and a 54 gmc 350 coe and a 51 gmc suburban.
So far there is so much info here its going to take some time to wade through it

Be sure to look through the Techtips section. There's a lot of helpful information there.
