Brian, it is a 1/2" thick spacer that goes between the axle and the spring to raise the left side enough to compensate for the weight/torque of the spare tire mounted on the side. Without it, the bed won't ride even. Easy to make out of either 2" wide 1/2" flat sto...

I mocked everything up a dozen times with mixed results so I found what I thought would be the best location and mounted it. The draglink appears to be parallel but is not straight when using the short pitman arm. I think I will have to find a little bit longer pitman arm to brin...

If he's getting 9.6 volts at the coil on a 6V system with the engine running, he's got some serious charging system problems as well as ignition trouble. I'm betting a 62 GMC has a 12 volt electrical system. Jerry...

If you cannot find just the pulley, you can buy a new pump with the correct pulley, then put in on your engine, then mothball the old pump for when your new one eventually fails. At that time you can swap pulleys from your worn out "new" pump to your good old mothballed...

On a 6 volt system without a ballast resister, what are we trying to "bypass" with the '55-'62 bypass starter switch? Based on my interpretation of the OP's descriptions, I would suspect that he has an issue with his ignition switch or associated wires, preventing full ...

There are no "rollers" on the stock window regulators. They had round leather washers which slide in the track. Classicparts.com carries plastic rollers which are easy to install and work very well. You simply remove the old pin/rivet which formerly held the leather sli...

Thanks for the reply, I'm not really sure if I have any reason to switch, but there is a good chance that my current trans doesn't work (just a hunch, the truck has been sitting for 30+ years). That's really why I'm asking. I just want to know if there are any added benefits to ...

The bulb can not be put in socket the wrong way, it is keyed. The wiring could be reversed I guess. As far as I know, the brake must go thru the turn signal switch so that the brake signal can be turned off during blink mode. Otherwise it will not blink. That is one of the functi...

Your 3/4 ton is going to be the same as my 1/2 ton. I had to look to be sure but the end with the sever angle goes toward the windshield. The end that sticks out goes under s hold down piece that is screwed to the cowling at the windshield. Hope this helps George...

Yes the 47-53 had the foot stomp linkage. They may have removed the linkage from the bell housing, there should be a set of two holes on each side of the bell housing near the top for the linkage. If you are not familiar with the linkage go on ebay and do a search for 1953 Chevy ...
