That topic is addressed in the operator manual. My Topkick did the same, and I followed the procedure in the book, and it stopped. If you don't have an operators manual, and I can get to my truck...
The country, especially in the south & west is full of topkicks. I am amazed at the quantity of Gen 1 topkicks on farms here in VA. I use several NAPA stores around, and they all know how to look up...
As I re-read my own post, I left out a key step in getting those brakes on the left rear to loosen. Before I applied heat, I pulled the axle shaft out of the left rear, pulled the outer bearings and...
The brakes are now all unlocked. Pulled the tires and had left rear wheel on blocks.
Backed the adjusters off and it still wouldn't turn. Heated drum with oxy-acetylene, put truck in reverse and...
Truck is a generation one GMC Topkick, 1981 model. It is a over-center bucket truck and has drum brakes, Bud 20" wheels. It has a Mico brake lock system, which is a system that locks the brakes in...
TWICE NOW, WITH TWO (2) GMC TOPKICKS, I HAVE POSTED ONLY TO HAVE A POSTER REPLY:
"WHAT IS A TOPKICK?"
Is the distiction between the silverado pages, ck pages and MEDIUM pages so limited that blazer...
will post some pictures when I get it on the farm, later next month. Meanwhile, I noticed I only have 16 post, and that makes me a Jr Apprentice on this site. So I will make this pointless...
Have owned a Gen II 1991 Topkick, 3116, 5 sp, sleeper with still only 45K original miles. Recently bought a new CM SK bed to replace that dually pickupbed that came with it.
Just bought a Gen I,...
Like frame rails, clutch, transmission, and driveline size. Tire ratings LR-G on Topkick vs E on Pickup. Sure I could put bigger brakes on my pickup....
What type front end do you have on your truck?
I have a 1993 Chevy 4x4 SRW 1T, 5sp NV-4500, the original 6.5 was pulled at 100K and 5.9 Cummins Commercial engine installed. While it will pull as much as my Topkick, it gets 2-5 MPG better loaded...

1991 Topkick 5 speed/3116/sleeper
Medium truck. My pickup rides fine. My Topkick rides stiff.
I do not have a service shop book, but here is one question I need answered:
Does the signal switch and 4 way flasher system control voltage or ground. My gut says ground.
That would explain...
based on this representation of how a 5 blade flasher relay works, power at 30, ground at 87, then the contacts in the column connect 87a.
when I had my steering wheel off, it was clean, the...
I wish it was that simple. The turn signal flasher is 3 blade, the flasher relay is 5 blades, however both are known good. My rear signal and brake lights work off a board. Will look at...

Mine rides solid and rough without a trailer. I can live with it loaded.
I have seen more than a few postings on this topic and I am curious. The negative remarks came from non Topkick and...
I can make you an awesome deal on this dually bed. I am pulling it to install a CM SK hauler bed.
As for the CAT 3116. Runs perfect. Pulls good. Down side is it is limited to 68-71 on top end....
1991 - 5 speed with sleeper.
Empty mileage - 14.37 on 850 mile trip. Refilled.
Loaded return mileage 12.77
Baldwin has all the filters for a topkick with a 3116 Cat.
Changed. Runs great.
After four days, it appears I will not get an answer for this question.:sign0144:
Am I doing something different than other Topkick owners, planning to change my own fuel filters? :shocked:
Yesterday, I bought a 1991 Topkick with 40,800 miles. 3116 & 5 Speed. Clean.
Here is the problem.
Fuel filter under the left fender/step area.
I checked the Baldwin site, and...
