Hey guys

In my 79 K20 Burb, I replaced the dash lights with LEDs last week. I did it blindly and didn't remove the dash so I just yanked out the old halogens from the front instead of pulling them out of the back. I regret not doing that because the LED dash lights were very temperamental, turning off and on as I'm going down the road. But that's beside the point. They were working fine until one night I was just sitting at a red light and all my dash lights went out. I thought I checked the fuse but it looked ok so I took apart the dash. Turns out I was looking at the wrong fuse and the instrument cluster fuse was popped. So I replaced it and turned the dash lights on and it blew the fuse again. Where could this be shorting out or what could be the issue here?

P.S. I replaced the headlight switch, to no avail.

Let me know what you guys think.

Another question about my 1973 K-10.  It came with a three speed, column shift.  A previous owner had changed it to a floor shift and just had a switch on the dash to turn the backup light on.  It is a Hurst shifter, but it is a generic one; evidently no one makes a dedicated shifter for this transmission.  We have a safety inspection here in WVa and I don't know if it will pass; they have been getting more and more strict.

Many years ago, I stole a plunger switch off of an old riding mower and it worked for several years.   I had it mounted somewhere underneath where it was activated by one of the shifter levers.  I am due for an inspection, so I was checking all of the lights and found that the backup lights no longer worked, except with the switch on the dash.  I had a guy replace the clutch and had him replace all of the seals, because he removed engine and transmission to do the work.  I don't know if the switch fell off, or if maybe he removed it.  He has gotten out of the mechanical work, so he doesn't answer his phone.

I searched and all I found was about the switch for the column shift at the lower end of the column.  I can't switch it back to a column shift, because something broke inside the column.

Does anyone have any suggestions for a switch that I could use and how I could mount it?

TIA,
Brady

Hi guys.  I have a '73 K-10 that I had a guy rebuild the Quadrajet carburetor on.  I had him seal the plugs in the bottom of the bowl with epoxy, because I would have to prime it to start if it had been sitting for more than a couple of days.

Now, it is much better, but he told me that I should get a fuel filter with an anti drainback valve and that Advance Auto could order them, but didn't have them in stock.  Only one older clerk knew anything about them and ordered the one that he thought it was, but when it came it didn't have that valve.

Does anyone know the details of getting one of those?

TIA,
Brady

Hello, First post here. Trying to hunt down a slow leak on my 86 305 Scottsdale. Long story short, the leak came out of nowhere. I have not driven the truck in 3 weeks and yesterday while installing new shocks, I noticed a slow leak. Its garage kept and the floor never ahowed anything until today. Thw only thing ai can think is that  My kids were playing in the truck a few days ago turning the steering wheel while the truck was off. If one were to turn the wheel to each extreme while the truck was off and stationary, would this somehow cause a power steering leak? Thanks in advance.

Does anyone happen to know a decent wheel that gives the pro touring look but won't break the bank? I'm about to go the coilover route and the boss 338s just aren't doing it
