My truck (87 suburban listed below) is 100% stock as far as the engine goes. I've been told that fuel psi on my truck should be 8-13. I've heard some say that they have seen trucks with 9 psi not run well. And another said that he recommends 17 psi. How much pressure can I safely put on a stock 350 tbi? And if I go with a performance fuel pump, should I get something like the CFM adjustable pressure kit for my tbi? To my knowledge, new OEM fuel pumps aren't reliable as to what pressure you will end up with. I'm getting 10 out of mine now. So I don't want to buy a new pump and get the same. Seems to me, the logical choice would be to find a pump that is around 20-25 psi and then regulate it down to what I want... am I wrong?

 Just picked up an 88 Chevy Silverado 3 + 3 dually. Now I know this site is 73-87, which is where my preference is, but it's the early body style as is my 1991 GMC Suburban 3/4 ton. But the other trucks changed in 88, right? So my questions would be: #1- are the suspensions the same as the earlier years such as 87? and #2-what would be the correct letter / number names for these two? C-3500 ? and V-2500? respectively. The PO lowered the Dually and I just need the front springs at the moment, and the internet is confused on which truck this is. ( pics of new and old bodies ) as well as mixed parts listings. Thanks!

Okay so I have a 1985 chevy k10 4x4 with the 305.

It has always shifted a bit different but now it is getting worse as i drive it. Now it seems to shift almost as soon as i hit the gas and then once it does the engine revs before shifting from 3 to 4. Not sure on how old the fluid is but i'm hesitant to drain it because of the possible old wives tale of it causing a dead tranny. I recently rebuild the rear end in it and did the suspension but i have also been having issues of it trying to stay running after the key is off. Any ideas?

87 1/2 ton Suburban 4x4
700r trans
Not sure which transfer case I have (if anyone can tell me how to find that out, that would be great)
Also not 100% sure what gears I have. I assume they are .373's (again, how do you tell?)
I would love to turn this into a standard shift truck. I know it can be done, but what all is involved in this process?

I want to put a Tremec 5 speed in my 84 C10. My question is about the clutch pedal assembly. I have seen them listed on ebay with vacuum brakes. I'm not sure if this will work in my truck. Are there clutch pedal assemblies with hydraulic brakes? I've only seen the vacuum brake assemblies. And don't have a clue as to whether this will work in my truck. This is my first post. Cheers, Thomas
