Hello everyone.  I decided to get my 1978 chevrolet big 10 bonanza package single cab lwb running and reliable again.aka oleblue.  It sat for 6 or 7yrs. I have had this truck since I was 15.  I started this old beast up again because I was tired of making car payments , this old truck has been paid for the last 16 yrs lol.
1st time I drove it to work 7 mpg
Next thing I did was ordered a big box of parts.  New tires & shocks   New Edelbrock Performer intake manifold new Edelbrock Performer carburetor new h.e.i performance distributor new wires &plugs. All new fluids & filters including the old th350 the same tranny since I bought it.
My MPG best have been 11.4
Here's a. Picture before I started

New tires and shocks

Engine compartment before new parts

Some new parts

Hopefully I get my ujoints put in on my day tomorrow there pretty bad
Then I'll start my heater core job, that's about all I've done in the past 2 months

I've been trying to get the Cruise Control working on my truck.

First thing I did was replace the Servo (next to the distributor). My old one had holes in it. The one I replaced it with came out of another truck, so it's not new, but it didn't have any holes and it sucked in and out smoothly. After replacing the servo, it still didn't work.

Second thing I tried was the cruise control switch (on the column). I thought this was gonna be it for sure but I just replaced it with a brand new one and it still dosen't work :-\

What else can I try? Is there a fuse for this?

Thanks guys

I just bought a 1989 Chevy  Silverado 1500 and the problem I'm having is that every time I go to give it more than half throttle the truck bogs down and seems to me like it's almost shutting off but I have not got a check engine light yet the truck idles okay only when I'm going to give it more than half throttle is when it starts to act up

Just saying hello to everybody, purchased my 1986 K20 about three weeks ago and wanted to join a group for information and help if needed when I have any problems. I've been looking for a while and finally found the truck I really like.

Thanks again, I look forwarding to talking and getting to know everyone.

Finally I'm back.  Just got back into a square body. 1986 C30 3+3 1ton. 52000 original miles.  Once I figure out how to shrink a file pictures will come.
