It's been 15 years since I last drove my truck. Here is an update in the Gallery.) I finally got the cracked block, snapped steering column, and frozen brakes working. It's been a long slow process. I got a call that engine is rebuilt, the generator goes, and the brakes stop, so I am going to drive it home Monday to finish the more cosmetic details. I hope I haven't forgotten the shift pattern. - Austex

Austex, lifes events sometimes get in the way of our plans but its nice to see you never forgot the GMC. My neighbor drug one of those 50 GMC's home about a year ago and is steadily making progress. Just 15 minutes a day will surprise you what you can get done if you do it EVERYDAY.
Are you keeping the tan/gold'ish color? It looks sharp for that style truck.

Now, less computer games smile , more time on the truck and you'll be riding once again....with pride! ....and don't forget to keep us updated. We're here to help if needed.

I picked up the truck and headed across the city to a shop where I could get the details necessary for a safety inspection performed. It ran great for 5 miles, and then just stopped. I suspect I ran out of gas. I had it towed the rest of the way partly because I wasn't sure why it stopped, and partly because there are no mirrors installed inside or outside. It's really difficult to change lanes in city traffic by trying to stick your head out the window and look back.

I'm almost ready to drive home again. As it turned out the gasoline in the tank was dirty and plugged the filter and fuel pump. It's cleaned, new filter, and the windows have been re-felted and adjusted so they go up and down. I have insurance and registration now, so I don't have to look over more shoulder as I drive. I'm waiting on one tiny part which connects the windshield wiper on/off knob to the wiper motor connecting rod. It's been hard to find for such a little part. There's still a bunch to do, but nothing that should affect the way it runs or drives.
