I'm having trouble finding some information on my cruise control. I'm going to be installing an Autometer electronic speedo into my 1985 Suburban. I want to retain the cruise control but I'm not sure how to wire it up. The factory sensor for the cruise is the optical type in the back of the stock speedometer that is hooked to a buffer/amplifier. The speedometer has a signal out that I think might work in place of the stock optical sensor but I'm not sure where the signal needs to go to make it work.

i have my heads off and im going to do the valve seals so i bought the little O ring seals and i bought the rubber umbrella seals.

i now realize that my valves do not have the umbrellas but since i already have them, can i put them on? or is there a reason they arent on my valves?

i have read around online and nobody seems to have my situation. and my SBC rebuild books dont include a work about the rubber umbrella seals

thanks guys!

So ive been working on my 77 C10's engine. got it pulled to do some gaskets and a few other things. so i get the heads off and the driver side rear cylinder is the one that was burning coolant. that side had some kinda brownish head gasket which cleaned off nicely.

the passenger side head had what im guessing is a Felpro because its blue. and it left a blue residue. ive scraped scrubbed and used 3 different solvents to try and get it off with no luck. you cant actually feel it. just see it. its more of a stain than a residue i guess. its on the head and the block but not as bad on the block.

will it be ok? or is there a trick to removing it? ive searched online and found nothing

This happens overtime on the street but if im in mud  it will kick right out if i gun it.  What causes this? Could it be the transfer case going out?
