On a 59 truck I worked on for a friend years ago, I took out the ammeter, and made a relacement "idiot light" for it...just a flat plate of sheet metal with a hole in it to fit where the ammeter had

After letting my 57 Suburban sit for the past 9 months, I moved it into the working area of my garage yesterday, and this morning patched up the few rust holes on the drivers side quarter panel, and

The only problem I can see with using the disc/drum master cylinder is that the reservoir for the rear brakes is small, and may run out of fluid if you don't check the fluid level and the brake pads

Bill-- You might talk to places in town that do trailer hitches, they should be able to remove as well as install :) Probably a cutting torch will be needed, but it must be used by someone who knows

When I first swapped the 396 into my 59, back when I was 17, I kept the stock tranny, and the drivers side manifold rubbed on the steering box. Eventually I got it to clear, using Hedman headers (68

Neat truck! But it's not a Suburban, it's a long wheelbase panel truck, with a side door and quarter windows added. The model 3805 panel truck was quite a bit longer than the short wheelbase Suburba

A big block in a truck would have the TH400. The 402 and 454 look almost identical, the numbers stamped on the block are different and can help us figure out which it is. I believe the half ton pick

The deal is that the 2 wheel drive pickups went to 5 lug wheels and front disk brakes in 1971. The 4x4s also went to disk brakes, but kept the 6 lug pattern. I expect the rear brake pictures in the

Hi all... A friend is building a 56 Cameo, sort of a resto-rod. He wants disk brakes and power steering, but doesn't really want to do a subframe or suspension swap. The truck will get a small block/

I have the same alternator on both of my oletrucks, so it's on topic (just pretend you've already installed the engine in an oletruck) When you say "amp gage", I'm not sure exactly what you mean. GM

Lots of good info..thanks! but one minor nitpick--there are some alternators with the back plug connection, which are external regulator type alternators. They have the two connector blades parallel

The Chevy 6.2 liter diesel would probably be closer to a bolt in, since it uses the same side mounts as the small block Chevy engine. You would need to add an aftermarket crossmember to hold the eng

Might want to be careful here....I recall that the 63 Impala was the first full size Chevy to have the "new" 230 engine. The 230 is completely different from the 235, it will not bolt into an oletru
