Noob from KS
I just bought an 88' K1500 and thought this would be a good community to be a part of. About the truck:
Fresh rebuilt 350 with less than 500 miles. A heavy duty 1 ton 5 speed transmission out of a diesel (still have to figure out exactly what it is) with a ceramic button (?) clutch. Apparently for off road and hauling. Has a 1/2 ton plus(?) rear axle, it was explained as basically a 3/4 ton rating. I forget the actual wording, but that's the basic idea. is has an ARB locker on the rearI posted some pics.
Some of the issues to figure out:
Synchromesh is worn going into third gear-Any ideas on how to fix?
Odometer quit- everything else on the dash works.
wipers have a mind of their own.
windshield needs replaced
Needs new tires.
All in all, an awesome truck for only $3000
I'm sure I'll be talking to you all sometime,
Welcome to the site! Glad to have you here.:glasses:
Welcome to the site! Sounds like heavy duty older truck!
Welcome to the forum! Pics are a must:)
Here's some pix of the ol man. There's some more in my profile, but not sure who can and can't view them. I've since put some mud accents on it, ya know to get a feel for it. Looks even better.:great:
