    LOL, that's ok. I theoretically know where the TBI's PCV port is. I say 'theoretically' because I've read the where/how of it and even found lots of pics of the hose running from the fixed PCV orifice to the TBI on various GM engines. However, it's dark out and I'm not at the family lake house's lit shop, so I can't go out and compare to my own engine.

    Learning one's way around one's engine without an engine diagram or an experienced engine guy to tell you what's what ... is a pain. I mean some things are obvious, but there are just too many hoses running about doing too many important things to guess and be wrong. (And I'd hate to put this stuff into the crankcase by mistake! Talk about some bad mojo.)

    Looks like I need to acquire a 3/8" hose for this activity, too. I wonder where I can get that... maybe some fuel line hose from an auto parts store. Will check in the morning.

    I did not actually do anything to the truck. But, my new Bilstein rear coil springs came today. So, now I can buy some Bilstein shocks and get rid of the factory Nivomat shocks. I was surprised to see that they were drop shipped directly from Bilstein. I found them for almost 1/2 the price that anyone else was charging for them. The average price was around $115, one retailer wanted $90 each, I bought them for $57 each including shipping. The markup on these things must be crazy. Now, I just need to find a deal on some shocks,

    Just rerouted my new cables and added a new frame ground and starter. Also began doing my roof rack sealing. Will post pictures later.

    After depressurized! Common occurrence to leak when cooled down. If you find anything get fixed soon and drive for another 100k's

    Thats the plan lol. Today I fixed my leak from the roof rack the was leaking in to the cab. I'm having trouble locating the leak I think one hose clamp is leaking and possible the water pump gaskets. I also today spotted a hose that needs to be replaced asap.

    Well, at least you got to watch it bead up nicely! (Pssst. You blocked out your plate in most pics but your front is showing in your first linked pic as of this writing...)

    Today I procured the following in preparation for oil system modification and initial oil fill for my York 210L compressor:
    • 10-32 taper, plug, and bottom taps
    • tap wrench
    • 10-32 set screw of 5/16" length
    • 30 weight non-detergent motor oil

    [MENTION=56081]95C1500[/MENTION] the only problem with pointing out the reflection is that the refelection shows a nasty 4 letter F word!! But the truck did turn out nice.
