    Ford using Chevy

    When you need a Chevy but all you have is a FORD
  2. Today I ordered the replacement title from cartitles.com for $79 I paid eBay to run the add for 30 days. Lots of hits and interests but my lowest price is $7000 which if you have read this entire post is a steal. Don't necessarily want to sell since I'll be loosing so much and I would of loved to build this truck. 4x4 classic truck able to do anything but wife got cancer in February 2020 and we need some income to help cover the medical bills. Material stuff comes and goes but your best friend isn't replaceable. So a skinny view of what has been spent on the truck (doesn't incl
  3. SOLD Suburban to a very nice family which was very excited to acquire such a fine ride. I had to sell it when after my attempt at pulling our RV Trailer. Its just too big and heavy for the Suburban.
  4. Underside of cab is a primed and painted black with Rustoleum rattle can paint. It boiled down to two big cans of Primer and one can of black paint. i also tried to paint the firewall with some farm and home rattle can blue paint. Doesn’t look horrible but went through two cans pretty quick. decided to paint the floor with black paint and the dash with the blue paint. going to put this on hold for now since I spent about $50 on paint but at least the floor is done so I can put the body back down and bolt it to frame.
  5. Eastwood heat and sound barrier went on like crap. Letting it dry overnight and we’ll see where we are at with it. I have a feeling we’ll be painting over it. my son Zack pulled the steering column, emergency brake, brake pedal, gas pedal, master cylinder and seat out of the 63 donor parts cab. goal today is get firewall and inside cab dash area painted so we can install the parts that Zack just took off, except seat
  6. So it’s been awhile but my wife got leukemia and been focusing on helping her get better. I have been selling all my toys since she’s without a job and we need money. We aren’t the people that live with a savings and are more that paycheck to paycheck family. Thought I was going to be selling the 64 as it sits but I’m at the point of trying to put it together very slowly. Here is a plan of attack, tons to do for no to little cost. Prime under body and rattle can paint Prime firewall and Rattle can paint Off old body (save bolts) Brake pedal Emergency brak
  7. I found this information pretty interesting and wanted to share with everyone else. A break down of the import/export business for vehicles is shown here The OICA counts over 50 countries which assemble, manufacture or disseminate automobiles. Of that number, only 14 countries (list below) currently possess the capability to design original production automobiles from the ground up. Australia China France Germany India Iran Italy Japan Malaysia Russia South Korea Sweden Below are the top 20 motor ve
  8. Changed the glow plugs in my LBZ Duramax Diesel and learned a few things. First, why did I jump into this project? Whenever it was cold out (which is often here in Michigan) the glow plug would come on and when it went away the Check Engine light would stay on. So I pulled out my spade tuner and read the code which was ECM P0672. Review what the code is its defined basically everywhere as a semi generic code but with some specifics like what cylinder to troubleshoot So which one is the #2 Not that it really matters since when you are changing them its always recommended
  9. Now getting a Check Engine light when the glow plugs are trying to warm up the engine to start. Checking for codes it shows ECM P0672 which is a bad glow plug in cylinder #2 which is about $20 for the glow plug and looks like its a do it yourself type of job. Its like changing a skinny, tiny spark plug.
  10. Added EFI Live DSP5 and a TCM tune all from calibrated power (duramaxtune). Now just trying to get the truck to find its groove. It doesn't feel like it knows what to do. I have been keeping it in Position 1 which is the stock+ tune and I plan on keeping it here until it feels like its regained the normal shifting and driving and then I'll kick it to Position 4 which is the Eco mode to get those high miles per gallon (especially driving back and forth to Detroit for Kate's Chemo). Then Position 2 and 3 are for towing which will also come in handy. You can tow with Position 1 (stock+ tune)
