I have a 59 Suburban (daily driver, going to be selling next year once my new project is done). New project is a 55 2-ton and 58 2-ton. I am going to make an extended cab out of them and end up with one truck. (not a 4-door, more like adding 1/2-2/3 of the door length). We need a beefier tow rg than the Suburban for our 1951 Royal Spartanette travel trailer (also in the project stage).

I'm in the Bridal Trails area of Bellevue. I have a 49 1/2 ton I bought off eBay a couple years ago. It's nearly 100% stock and in very good running condition, but has definitely been used over it's life. It's part of my retirement plan to spend time restoring it.

Re: How many in the Seattle area? - Wed Sep 20 2017 03:42 PM

welcome Chuck! Maybe a little heat on the bleeder screws? sometimes just heating them up and letting them cool will loosen them up.

I'm a new member from Shoreline area. I've got a '62 C20 that has a 350 & TH350 under the hood. It runs good.

I'm replacing the heater fan motor. The only issue at this time is the window washer doesn't shut off, if the button is pushed it will run till the tank is empty! Looking for replacement switch mechanism.

welcome to the site! Poke around a bit and once you make I think 4 posts you are no longer moderated and can PM folks. You will also be able to post in the parts wanted forum (don't think it shows while you are moderated).

Have you checked Ebay?
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Original-60-61-62-63-Chevy-Truck-Windshield-Washer-Wiper-Switch-2-Speed-GMC-1963-/311957473021?hash=item48a21d46fd:g:SS0AAOSw6YtZSahZ&vxp=mtr


When we had our 59 Suburban, I think I ended up getting one out of a 64-66. I had to make the hole in the dash larger and buy some super fine nuts off Ebay but, it was brand new instead of all old contacts inside.

Re: How many in the Seattle area? - Tue Sep 26 2017 04:58 AM

I got the heater motor replaced. I had to modify the wheel, the raplacement motor shaft was smaller than the stock. The replacement came with a shim to fit the shaft. This allowed the wheel to spin on the shaft. I drilled and tapped the wheel and put in a set screw. It wo is great now!

welcome to the site! You should make a post in the welcome wagon at the top of the forum page, introduce yourself to everyone, and tell us about your truck! Any specific question are best asked in their respective forum as they will get seen by more people. Other than us west coasters, I don't think very many people look in here!

Hello.. New joiner here.. have a 53 3/4 ton.. Planning to have a 235 rebuilt to replace the 216.. Anyone have recommendations on a Tacoma/Seattle are shop that can rebuild a 235?
Posted By: 69Cuda

Re: How many in the Seattle area? - Thu Nov 01 2018 01:30 AM

Welcome to the site! For any more questions, please start a new thread instead of tacking onto an existing one. That makes it easier to search at a later date!

My dad had his 235 rebuilt by a guy in Burien who is supposed to be real good but, the front and rear mains both leaked... and he took forever. (Mark at Earl's machine shop). He is supposed to be known as the go-to guy for them.



Larry at Aussie's machine shop is also supposed to be good. He is the one that did the machine work on the engine. Aussies is in Des Moines, N of 128th on Des Moines way.

Hello from Tacoma,
I'm new here to the stovebolt, lots of great stuff here. I like 54/55 trucks. I have a 54 chevy 1 ton panel, 54 chevy 4400 flatbed, 54 gmc 350 cabover, and a 51 suburban. I also have my very 1st vehicle a 65 c-10. We are getting ready to move to Hobart, so .my trucks have all taken a back seat to that. During the summer I love to go the Walmart in covington on friday nights. Nice mix of hot rods.

62 C20 in Shoreline, WA area.
This truck came into the family about 30 years ago. It had had a frame off rest. There was no engine or trans. My step-dad put in a 350 with a th350. The truck is mine now.

The engine runs a bit rough now but its my daily driver. When the engine is cold it runs smooth. When it gets up to normal operating temp it misses at idle but off idle it smooths out and runs strong. I haven’t taken the time to check it out yet, I’m thinking a vacuum leak. I’ll keep in touch when I get more info on this.

I'm in Lake Tapps just south of Auburn, working on a '50 Chev 3/4 ton I originally bought in college and my dad graciously kept around when I moved away to get married. I've been on Stovebolt for close to a year, but I'm still moderated because I've been a looky-loo soaking up everyone else's knowledge and not actually posting. VERY helpful site, I appreciate all you guys sharing what you've learned.
