    Thanks! Learn something new every day. I'll definately check on that when I get home from work. It would be great it there is something like that in there. I'm guessing that it's under one of the front seats since the middle row folds up, and I would have seen something like that already, and the third row has been out as often as it's been in, so I'm sure I would have seen it there as well.

    If I had ordered my restoration packet sooner, I would have that to go by. Maybe I'll get lucky and it will come in by the weekend.....(wish me luck)

    Default Nothing against blondes, but....

    Maybe someone should have bopped me in the head with a rubber mallet. Allow me to explain:
    My mother is blonde...I'm not, but apparently you don't need to be blonde to have a blonde moment. I guess just having it in your gene pool is enough.

    I looked for the manifest, and I don't have one. Yesterday when I tried aligning the column with the gear box I didn't realize the column had collapsed and needed to be pulled back out. Today I gave it a good tug, and it slid right down into place. problem solved.

    Thank you all very much for your suggestions, and ideas. :D :mrgreen: :D :mrgreen: :D :mrgreen:

    My boss calls that a "senior moment".

    The worst was when I was helping a buddy swap engines. He had a 1978 Blazer that he was replacing the original stock 350 plain-jane with a beefy 350 4-bolt that he had spent a bit of time on. The new engine was rebuilt from a different year.

    Anyhow, we took the old one out, put the new one in and fought it going into the motor mounts for 2 days! It just was like 1/2 an inch off from lining up properly.

    Finally we looked at the motor mounts. They looked the same, but we decided to use the new ones just to see. Well, the engine popped into place instantly after that in like 5 minutes.

    been there done that!
    well not that but somethings quite similar, was helping a friend change trans on my plow truck, 78 gmc pickup. everything went fine until we drove it. the truck drove great for about 5 min. of plowing then started sliping again, we had just rebuilt entire trany. pulled truck back in garage, droped pan on trany, only to find we had fried clutches. come to find out trany cooler in radiator was cloged. had to rebuild trany all over again.
    moral, always blow out trans cooler and make sure you have good flow threw. i had just put new lines on before trany went the first time because i had blown a cooling line. because the cooler was pluged evedently.

    I though the steering box could be adjusted. do they not have a screw and bolt on top that you turn to bring the gears together.

    I was not aware that was an option. The only thing on top of my gear box was a flat plate cover. I'm content with the results of the change over to a newer gear box. the steering is alot smoother, and responsive. I also think that the turning radius is a little smaller with this box. U turns seem to take up a little less space now.

    How's that possible? You're now back to factory specs? Or a tighter turning radius?
