So I've been on what seems like a never ending project to replace the spindle/arms/springs.  Installed the belltech (3in drop for 1in rotor), bolted on just fine, no issue - the issue is with the caliper not fitting like it should be.  I have aftermarket rotors that fit just fine on the stock spindle.  I've read that sometimes you have to grind part of the spindle for it to fit, anybody have this issue?  Is so, where exactly do you grind?
Thanks in advance!

Hey guys, I need a little help here. After installing previous engine I was. Breaking it in, and I had the starter wire too close to the headers.  It caught fire and melted a lot of the wiring coming through the fire wall  including wires for rear blower motor resistor.  I didnt bother much with it, as I've only driven it this summer, and just kept the windows down.  Now that it's cold I th ride the heat and defrost... and nothing is working.  I ran a temporary jump from the dark blue wire by the blower directly to battery and it works...just on high only.  Vacuum for hvac(which melted) I found in the cab and was able to get enough to push back through firewall, I connected to non ported vacuum on carb.  Head unit does not switch back and forth at all between vent selectors. I've searched endlessly on the forums here and I am very much diagram illiterate.   Can yall please point me in the right direction so I may have heat, and more importantly defrost.  All fuses are good also.

I have a 1981 Chevrolet Silverado C20 that I am trying to get the temp gauge to work on.  When I bought it, it didn't run so I have gotten it going.  It was all original. 

I replaced the sender, but the wire that was hooked up to it was black and didn't look right to me.  I unplugged it, tested it for voltage, it was at zero.  I found a loose green wire flopping around, hooked it up, but nothing.

At that point with me screwing around with it, I popped the needle off of the gauge.  I replaced it with a known working one.

I still have nothing on the gauge.  Since I replaced the head gaskets and stuff, I really want to know where the gauge wire comes from the firewall so I can trace it out.  I don't see colors very well so I can tell if something is greenish or reddish, but browns, reds, and oranges and different types of green are hard for me to spot.

The wiring and everything doesn't look butchered up, and it all looks factory to me. 

Truck is 1981 Chevrolet C20 Silverado with original 5.7 350 4 bolt main L series, original intake and carb, TH350 Tranny

i have a 87 short fleet and need to replace the drivers door glass.
is the glass the same for 73-87 ?
i see the catalog separates 73-80 and 81-87
i am looking in junk yards and many times the staff is not sure of year compatibility.

also are there any particular quirks to installation or is it basically straight forward?
any good articles or videos on line someplace?

The other day my 84 c10 with a jegs 350 almost died as i was climbing a grade. I had to feather the gas to make it the rest of the way.
Now its having trouble staying running. Sometimes it'll idle fine, other times it may stall. Sometimes it'll fire right back up, other times i need to use starting fluid and itll idle fine after it starts. Heres a list of things of tried:

Changed fuel pump and filter
Checked vacuum advance with a vacuum pump, fully opened at 12psi and held open for 5 minutes
Checked cap and cleaned contacts
Checked wires for distributor
Checked plug wires at night for arcing

Im really not sure what else to look for as im prettt new to carbs? Any other ideas?
