My disk brake kit came with 1/4" "spacers" to place between the back side of the wheel and the hub. They are basically just a piece of flat plate donut-shaped steel with holes drilled in them to fit

A valve problem shouldn't let cylinder pressure get to the crankcase. Sounds like either a ring or piston problem to me. Guys, What does it mean when a leak down test on #1 cylinder blows like a hurr

This arrangement uses the master cylinder to pressurize the brake system and then when activated you release foot push on the brake pedal thereby releasing pressure on the master cylinder. So your c

"Expansion" of the gas shouldn't be a problem if the gas cap has a "vent" hole as the original caps did. I visited the truck last night fully expecting to turn off the fuel valve and putter with the

Smokey (and me) don't have to worry about mileage using Classic plates in Texas because there are no state imposed limits. However, if we had Antique Texas plates there are limits. Same thing applies

The easiest conversion of the front axle to 5 bolt is to use hubs and drums from 53/54 Chevy car. I don't remember if you use the bearings from the truck or the car (or if they are the same). I'm sur

Depends on what your definition of "decrease" is. Increasing the size of the bore of the master cylinder would cause you to have to press harder on the pedal, but move the pedal less distance to appl

As long as your truck is a half ton and NOT a 3200 (or 102 GMC) the kits should work with minimum effort. The 3200 and 102 use different size brake lines than the short wheel base trucks use. Decided
