  1. Any v8 Blazers?

    Chevy Blazer Forum (GMC Jimmy)
    I had a 1986 4x4 S-15 Jimmy I bought used in 1987 with 8,000 miles, we installed a V8 in 1988 after the dealership wouldn't honor warranty because I had 33" tires and a 3" lift with cut out wheel wells. In those days I was young and didn't my rights about warranties so I didn't fight the...
  2. Do I need spindles to go with my lift

    The Coffee Shop ~ Chit Chat
    I'm not sure why your looking at Tie rods. Look around, there's a couple of companies that sell tie rods with much better spherical tie rod ends, these ends offer a lot more movement and angle which will help with the lift you have, so that the steering system wont get into a bind when you get...
  3. Do I need spindles to go with my lift

    The Coffee Shop ~ Chit Chat
    The angles look acceptable from your picture. Unless your looking for more height I'd probably leave yours be for now. The spindles are the vertical part that pivots stub axle/brake rotor assembly. (on your truck look at the vertical part that's connected to outboard bottom of your new upper...

    Are you looking to add more lift to your Tahoe?
  5. Difficult Question on the K5 Blazer , Originality ?

    Chevy Blazer Forum (GMC Jimmy)
    I attend 2 different car shows weekly, and there's a growing trend at these shows to return older vehicles to stock. Original condition vehicles are the most desired. It really doesn't matter what make or model, a lot of owners want a car like they had as their first driver or the vehicchle...
  6. Pricing a 1978 GMC Royal Sierra

    Chevy Silverado Forum (GMC Sierra)
    There are quite a few sites that can you help you price your truck if you do a google search. Having bought and sold dozens of these trucks over the years here are thoughts I'd use to price your truck. This particular truck appears to have little to no options. I'll assume its a 350/350 which...
  7. Square Body Years ?

    The Coffee Shop ~ Chit Chat
    The Blazer and GMC Jimmy were introduced in 1969, as the K5 Blazer/Jimmy and was only available in 4wd. 1970 saw the addition of a 2wd version and continued production of the K5 4wd on this platform until the end of the 1972 model year. Blazer's/Jimmy's and trucks for the 1973 model year were...
  8. Diesel

    The Coffee Shop ~ Chit Chat
    I've got a 2006 Silverado 3500 4x4 dually C/C Diesel I use when I need to tow my triple car trailer or 5th wheel trailer, since its only used to tow either of those items it normally see's less than 10K a year in mileage. In a normal year it gets 1 oil change a year, and a trans fluid change...
  9. Can i use amsoil instead of dexos in my 2019 Chevy silverado 5.3??

    Chevy Truck Talk & GM News
    As Rick stated follow the OEM guidelines exactly. Manufacturers have no problem using any excuse to deny warranty claims, and in this case the lack of a simple Dexos logo would allow them to get away with it if you were to try and appeal the ruling. A friend of mine recently went through this...
  10. C notch. Weld in vs bolt in

    Chevy C/K Truck Forum
    Over the last few years I've purchased a dozen or so lowered trucks, three of them that I remember well had bolt in "C" notch's, all three I remember because after close inspection they all needed work on the "C" notch due to the bolt in kit loosening up and wallowing out the holes. Since I...
  11. Manual transmission conversion- 1989 Chevy dually

    GM Powertrain
    Keep in mind out-put speed is controlled by RPM and final drive ratio. If you need a higher speed to run a pump or some other device change the final drive ratio via a gear or pulley drive. I used to run a portable sawmill on a PTO drive I had on a 68 CJ-5 with a 258 6 cyl. its all in how you...
  12. Range Technology Active Fuel Management Disabler

    Chevy Silverado Forum (GMC Sierra)
    I've been using the Range plug-in on my 2011 5.3 for about 7 years. I've had a couple issues that have never been directly attributed to it's use but started about the same time and involve systems the Range affects. Where I live I'm required an annual emissions inspection which involves the...
  13. Have any of you ever bought a snowplow truck?

    Chevy Silverado Forum (GMC Sierra)
    In 2017 I "acquired" a 2017 Alaskan Edition 3500 crew cab LTZ with every option, including a factory snow plow, GM could add, as my work truck when I'm in Montana. It's original purpose was to plow runways and provide VIP taxi service at an FBO my uncle and I own. Not long afterwards we...
  14. In Sacramento it is now illegal to perform auto repairs on your own property

    The Coffee Shop ~ Chit Chat
    I was just reading the article about this natural gas ban. Years ago I lived in Walnut Creek Ca. where I was introduced to "Heat Pumps" and all electric homes. Even at that time I wondered if it was a conspiracy by the electric providers to bend us over and rape us. With all the rolling Brown...
  15. Stolen Valor

    The Coffee Shop ~ Chit Chat
    Yes it is a Federal offense, but local jurisdictions can as you stated issue citations. Normally most local jurisdictions wont get involved. I was told by a Dallas, Texas officer the reasoning for this is they see no advantage to doing the job of Federal authorities. The point was most local...
  16. Stolen Valor

    The Coffee Shop ~ Chit Chat
    Last year I had some Douche bag dressed in cammys with ribbons and medals trying to tell me his Vietnam sea stories, he was in his early 40's. I'm in my 50's and joined the all volunteer service in the early 80's at the age of 17, the Vietnam war was long over prior to my service and even my...
  17. In Sacramento it is now illegal to perform auto repairs on your own property

    The Coffee Shop ~ Chit Chat
    Yes, we do have this B.S. in Texas. The City I live in (actually a rural area) Grand Prairie, at the edge of Dallas city/county limits. Its one of the least restrictive places in North Texas. We still have issues with residents that desire to live in a world where they make the only rules that...
  18. Breaking in flat tappet cam on big block

    GM Powertrain
    I agree with Rick, with all the performance parts available now days it's odd to find a builder using a flat tappet cam. While it was a popular trick years ago times and technology have drastically changed. What type oil make-up are you using? Most professional builders recommend an oil high...
  19. In Sacramento it is now illegal to perform auto repairs on your own property

    The Coffee Shop ~ Chit Chat
    I lived in Sacramento from 1970-1982, (elementary to high school). In 1982 I joined the U.S. Navy in hoping to be stationed anywhere but Ca., I disliked the politics and restrictive govt. regulations. Unfortunately I was stationed right back in the Bayarea from 1983 to 1991. I left in 91...
