I'm changing from brown to blue. Manual to power.
All I have located as of now are the doir panels.
So I need it all.
A and B pillars
Rear window and carpet trim
Also looking for wood trim for dash. The door panels I have have it so think I'll go with it.

I have been going through this truck I bought, looking for problem areas and doing general maintenance. It is a 1979 GMC Heavy Half with the 454 big block in it. Im trying to check all the devices to make sure they are working properly.
I was setting the timing, and I am curious about what this thing is in the line between the carb and the vac advance on the distributor. Do I need it, and how can I check that its working? It appears to be in the right place according to the vac diagram on the radiator support, but it doesn't call out what it is.

So the past few days I've been chasing down some issues I've been having with the 350 in my '73 K10. It runs pretty decent, but has a hard time starting in the morning and smells very rich while running. Fuel mileage is also pretty low, probably hovers around 6 mpgs even with me babying the thing. The fumes are enough to make my eyes water on occasion. I know it's an old truck without a cat, but this seems worse than it should be.
I figure it's probably in need of new plugs, wires, distributor cap etc. I'm planning to replace those, but I figured that I'd take a look at the carb too, thinking that could be the culprit of my cold start issues. After taking off the air cleaner I noticed a cable wasn't connected. It looks like it should run to the throttle bracket but I don't know what it's for or what it does so I was hoping ya'll could help me figure it out.

Just got Mom an 83 silverado, has the worst of everything in the drive train to me. 305 w/lockup 350 trans. Won't pull a dead cat off the sidewalk.
I have a 350 and a short shaft TH350 in the stand. Ideas? Think it is cheaper to go with a longer driveshaft than get a long tailshaft TH.
One wire Dist too, ick! Time to simplify things again. Oh ya, Holley for me. None of this perdy Edelbrock stuff.
Not fond of headers either.
Ideas?? I know you guys have all been there and done that. I appreciate the comments.

i took out my vent windows to rebuild. that went smooth. now the question and i've seen it both ways. does the vent window frame to front of door weatherstrip go to the inside of door or does it spread out to the outside of door. i tried to word it the best i can.
