83’ C10 383
Occasionally if you punch the accelerator pedal it will stick. Which was pretty frightening the first time it happened. As I had no idea WTH to do.
With that said I just somewhat in a panic used my foot to lift the pedal back up and that fixed it. Well it didnt fix it, it just stopped it from accelerating at that time.
Now if Im just cruising around this has yet to happen. And it only happens it seems when its first punched to make it scream down the road.

It doesnt appear to be cathcing on the cabs floor, so where else should I be looking to remedy this issue. What type of lub can I use, assuming this will fix it?


Thanks

I have a 74 c10 I recently did a ls swap in. So I went ahead and rewired the whole truck using an aftermarket wire harness. Everything is functioning as it should. The only thing is my dome light. I bought a new courtesy light kit from with new door jambs. I wired up as directed and when the doors are open lights come on. Doors shut they go off. Now my thing I'm having a problem with is when I turn the headlamp switch counterclockwise to activate the interior lights nothing comes on. On my aftermarket harness I took the dome light lead and ran it to the lead on the switch which indicates ground for dome light. The switch isn't bad because headlights come on and I have power going to it in its right spots. Is there anyone solution to my problem?

   Hey Guys,
I'm redoing my cooling system and I would like to know if I should run an 6 vane water pump or an 8 vane? The engine is stock- a rebuild 305 030 over. The engine I hope will be out of there this yr.
and a 383 going in.
      Thanks

I have a stock 454 in my 85 ‘burban, would it have solid or hydraulic lifters?

Hello all.  I have a large Douglas battery charger that I got from work several years ago. It was for charging an old pallet jack. It's still in good working order, and I have used it several times, but I know it's probably not a good idea being as though it's not meant for a single car battery - the jacks usually have at least 4 that it would have charged at a time. I've used it on the truck a handful of times only to help boost the starting power during the winter months when I rarely drive it. I've had to use it on my 442 many times - I either have a bad battery or a short somewhere that is draining the battery, and it needs a charge nearly every time I go to start it. With the warm weather I was going to take it out for a drive today since it's been several months, but while charging I heard the battery bubbling a lot and decided it wasn't worth risking an explosion.

So here's my question - how bad is it to use this charger on car batteries? It is a 12V charger, but has a 90 amp output, and is not adjustable (at least by the operator).

Also, does anyone know if there is a way I can change the amperage output and how I would do this? If so, what amperage should I go for?

Thanks!
Jim
