Lately I've been posting about cooling issues with my 84 C20 with the sbc350. She started over heating one day about a week and a half ago. After going through the entire cooling system and replacing everything that could have been causing my issues. The truck has been running rough, overheating at idle in just a few minutes and the entire cooling system appeared to be working properly. After sitting for the weekend, I warmed her up and have a few light revs to try to kick it into a normal idle. That's when I noticed black/brown water coming from the passenger exhaust pipe. Upon closer inspection....the exhaust pipe around the starter has had oil blown all over it and dark oily looking water has been ejected from the end if the pipe. I've been experiencing the cooling issues, misfire, and more exhaust smoke than normal. I believe all of these thing are pointing to a blown head gasket. I think it's time to give in and accept that it's time to replace the motor. If anyone has any alternate suggestions or any tips on a new motor is greatly appreciate it. I'd like to keep a period correct 350 in it and and I don't have much to spend. I live in the Houston area if anyone has or knows of a motor for sale or a good mechanic to swap it.

My AC compressor on my 80 pickup makes a knocking noise when the AC is on or off. It would get faster as I start to accelerate. The other day the belt broke off so of course, no more noise. But I live in Texas and would love to get the AC running again. What could be causing the compressor to knock when it's on or off? Could it have been the belt? Any info is appreciated! Thanks

I have an 84 C10. The left rear brake gets tighter as I drive. Sometimes it will release in reverse but resumes tightening going forward.  Thoughts?

I have a 1974 chevy C10 1/2 ton (ok redundant I know), chevy stepside.  350 with what I was told is a 450 transmission.  Not sure on that...but..the truck developed an exhaust leak on the way home (within a few miles of home).  Seems to run rough as well and it may well be that when replace the flange gasket or doughnut gasket, (manifold to exhaust pipe), the whole problem clears up.  The leak seems to have the whole truck shaking.  Anyway, I will pull the exhaust pipe tomorrow.  I Soaked the bolts with penetrating oil today to try and loosen them a bit before I pull them.  I hate exhaust problems. If this doesn't go easy I will head to the muffler shop!!  Anybody seen an exhaust leak cause a rough idle??
