All 6 wheels are in really good shape. The truck is an original AZ truck so moisture damage isn’t a big issue… the wheels didn’t have any ugly physical damage either. Now to paint and reassemble them when I get the opportunity.

Haven’t had a chance to work on the truck lately due to having a baby and taking care of the girls for a while. Now back to the fun after I get done building mama some shade for her horses and some stalls… hopefully in June I should be back on the truck…

Does anyone have part numbers lists for the rear axle brake cylinders and hub/axle seals? How about a good source for a hydro vac unit rebuild kit? Brakes will be the next order of business so that it can be moved around the yard and into the garage easily.

Update on the big bolt:
Went through the whole cooling system(new hoses, belt, water pump, rebuilt the generator, installed new fuel pump (that currently will not pump) and changed all the fluids front to rear. Rebuilt the driveshafts with new u-joints. Finally cleaned out the cab of all the “furniture” brought in by the desert pack rats that were evicted last year…. ENGINE RUNS well as long as you feed it fuel because the fuel pump is not pumping, I cannot figure out why, may have to install an electric pump but really do not want to.
The fuel pump I installed is a Carter M751… is this an ok pump to use with this GMC 302? I’m assuming a 235 fuel pump will work?
Here’s a couple progress pictures!

Carter M751 is a proper pump for your 302 (or 228, 236, 248, 256, 270) GMC.
