1987 GMC R1500

While taking apart my driver door this evening, I found a small motor laying in the bottom of the door that was connected to two wires. The motor body is very small, maybe the size of a quarter. My truck has manual windows and locks, so I'm clueless what this small motor was meant for. I should have taken a picture, but I figured I could look it up in a pats catalog. Any ideas?

I replaced the hub/rotor on my 1986 k10. How much do i tighten the spindle nuts? No matter how much i tighten it theres still slop in the hub assembly and now im worried that i overtightened it. Any help is appreciated

While removing my spindle for ball joint replacement. I accidentally damaged near the bearing surface. Is this too much damage to re use?

Also, any tips on removing this steering knuckle that is so corroded i feel it may be welded onto the axel (sarcasm).

I am looking at ditching my saddle tanks for a rear mount. The blazer tank seems to be the most economical "stock" way to do it, but my question is can I use an external electric fuel pump with the stock sending unit/fuel pickup? I will be converting to EFI down the road but I don't want to run an internal pump.

Iíve been slowly working on my trucks interior. My father-n-law has a truck carcass around a 1976 or so that has been sitting on his mountain rotting since the mid-80s. I got the steering wheel out of it and decided to restore it. I washed it in dawn and mean green then let it soak in both overnight.


After washing/soaking, sanding, and cleaning with TSP:

After painting with rustoleum american accents paint+primer semi-gloss black base and also clear coat. Used what i had laying around for the emblem which was Miracal metallic decorative finish and then the rustoleum clear coat. I probably should of used an adhesion promoter on the wheel and emblem, but didnít. We will see how it holds up. I might eventually paint the inside of the chevy emblem yellow, but not sure the best way to do it.
