I took the truck in (Not enough time in the day) to shop to investigate small oil leak and a vacuum leak. He hasn't got the vacuum leak yet but called me and asked me if I had a big trailer. Apparently there is a oil cooler on it and its one of the leaks. He said it should just be removed and just go back to regular screw in filter. What do you guys think, I'm only hauling a 12' tent trailer?

The rear main seal was not leaking like I thought :yipi:Thank goodness. He's going to power wash motor and use dye to find the other leaks. I'm glad he's got time cuz I sure don't.

C. G. I pull a 3500 lb ski boat .And I don't force things. (hard accels.).
You are the judge on this one. Store the unit, or don't take off the cooler, and you can always switch back.
Next year I'm going to use a trailor for the boat, I hear that should make it real easy on the truck.

I think I found a new shop buddy he replaced and fixed all kinds of stuff and only charged me $120. All fluid leaks I had stopped. There is still dye in the oil just in case. I hate fluid drips with a passion...

My dad is doing a 70 C10 right now. He's doing a complete restoration on it. In fact he asked to borrow my engine stand to rebuild his 350. I should post some pictures of it.
