My 76 Chevy had 26 inch wheels on when I bought it .I changed the wheels to 22s I want to lower it but I assume they lifted the truck to put the 26s should I buy a lowering kit or is there something else I can do ?

Just thought I would share with the group what I have been going through and the fix. I had been chasing an intermittent charging problem. Some times, when under load ( headlights, heater and wipers on) the voltmeter would drop down to 10 volts even at highway speeds. I noticed that my headlights would flicker and at times my radio would cut out also. Verifying that my alternator was making good power, 14.6 volts, I started with the headlights and checked all of the connections. Including the grounds, those I sanded to good metal. The situation improved but I would still get a low reading intermittently. Knowing that all of my power connections were good and clean I went to the ground wire between the frame and the body and sanded the connections clean. Better but still reading 12 volts at times. Finally I looked at the body to engine ground. The factory has the engine part connecting to the valve cover to me this wasn't optimal but it had been working for 5 years. I went ahead and installed an aftermarket ground strap ( NAPA I think ) that I had on the shelf, from the body to the Edelbrock Performer intake. I now have the full 14.6 going to the gauge. As a side note I no longer have the voltmeter moving in time to the turn signal lol. The body to engine ground strap made the most difference but all of the grounds contributed. I hope that this saves someone some grief down the road.

Should my choke pull off vac hose be going to carburetor or manifold? As you can see it's going to the carburetor, but the carburetor isn't idling down. When I remove the line going to choke pull off, and rev it, it'll idle down. The bottom line off the manifold goes to the carburetor just below the choke, the top hose goes to distributor.  Second picture shows the hose that goes to the choke pull off from the other side. 

I think I got something mixed up doing the emissions delete.

Backside port is plugged

 My brother Just bought a 2001 Chevy Blazer V6 Vortec auto 4x4. It's a very nice truck for the price he paid for, The problem i it has a problem running. When he Got it it ran strong but was missing on Cyl 5. So he did the fallowing to fix it, Seafoam in the tank, took the cat off (open headers until the seafoam is ran throu), New plugs, wires, Disto cap, rotor, New Distributor and a new coil.

Now when I got there it had no power, it back fired and then some!  like very loud Booms in between reg sounding backfires.  I had his flip the the distro 180 (cause the rotor only goes on one way) that made it hard to turn over and backfire once. then we moved it slightly from cyl 3 to point to cyl 1 and it now turns over smoothly but does not start. no noise just turns over.

Now my thinking, is to pull the tire off pull the #1 spark plug and bring it to tdc and mark the thing,  Reset the the distro again then, put a timing light on it w the fuel pump fuse pulled. the problem with this it's sitting in a nice neighborhood on the street, they frown on this type of thing. lol but I just want to make sure I'm thinking of going in the right direction. I only have 2 hours tomorrow to mess with it and he needs to tomorrow night for work.

What do you all think?

So, new motor, new pulse board and still no intermittent and no park, lo  and high run at the same speed.  '85 C10 Silverado tilt wheel.  The only thing left is the switch, right?  They're more money than the motor or the board.  Has anyone ran into this?
