85 K10 383 Vortec Stroker - Converting to Atomic EFI  - Fuel delivery questions:

I in unfamiliar territory here. I've eliminated my mechanical fuel pump and am trying to determine the best way to get fuel delivered. The options I'm aware of are:

1. Keep my original tanks but add an in-tank fuel pump that goes to a sump that then goes to the fuel rail/tbi unit

2. Get new tanks/pumps that are designed for EFI conversions

what other options are out there? im sure im missing something. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

So I have switched all of my lights to LED, headlights, tail lights, side lights, gauge lights.  I have a courtesy light under the dash that the incandescent Bulb went out, so I decided to change it to LED as well, but the bulb does not work.  I had replaced the relay to one that operates LED lights as part of the headlight and blinker conversion.  Does something special need to be done like that to the courtesy light in order for that to run LED as well?  Fuse is okay, and I donít think itís the jam switch or the headlight dash switch as they are pretty new.  Any advice in much appreciated!!  TIA!

I have a '79 C10 350/Auto with a noise speedometer cable.  My truck has the two-piece (upper and lower) setup. 

I've removed them to measure and get a new set, but I can't find anything that matches.  The lower cable is 23", and the upper cable is 44".

On the upper cable, I can find 41". Short but close that maybe I'm not measuring it the way the factor does.  On the lower cable I can't find anything close to 23".  Also, I'm not sure if they have the right ends.  Some pictures show a male end like I have, some show female, and some show something completely different.

Why is the cable two pieces anyway?  Seems like it just complicates things.

Am I missing something obvious here?

I did remove the drive on the transmission.  The gear was in perfect shape, and the square drive looked good, too.

Can the starter solenoid be replaced without pulling the starter?
Looks possible at a glance...
