My question is what size gas tanks do the extended cab trucks have (16 gal or 20 gal)? Little history if you might not know, I am rebuilding an 1986 extended cab that came with body and interior only. I have a chance to buy some nice tanks but they are from a short bed truck and my understanding is those are 16 gallon. Are those the size used in the extended cab C10 trucks?

Hi guys. First off thanks so much for all the great info on this forum!!

Okay i identified a serious amount of slop in my steering - it's this rod that goes between the steering box and ?. I can see the slop at the bushings.

I just don't know what part it is? Also, the truck is lifted 4" - do i need a different part?

Hey guys,
I've been struggling with my rear brakes and finally got everything tidied up. This is on my 78 c15 with power brakes.

Now I'm trying to bleed the brakes so that I know there isn't any air in the system. Is there anywhere I can look for a good tutorial on how to bleed my brakes. Im used to abs systems on newer vehicles.

I was hoping just turning the bleeder valve at the drum and having my wife pump the brakes would do the trick but it doesn't seem to be enough. Any and all help is appreciated guys!  Also, do I need to have the truck on or running to bleed the brakes?

Same topic different question.
I have my 400sbc, TH350 and NP203 all out of the truck, they've all either been cleaned or rebuilt and now are ready to be put back under the truck.
My question is what should go in first? Engine, then tranny, then transfer? Put tranny and transfer case together then put up as a unit and button up all the drivetrains and then the engine?
Also should I have another rear support bracket under the truck to hold up the rear end of transfer case? I only have one that bolts up to where the tranny and transfer case mount together.

Short story, found a 400sbc, had it rebuilt, in process of putting everything back together.  Motor is going into a 1977 chevy K10, TH350/NP203.
I bought a 110gph Edelbrock fuel pump and it doesn't have a fuel return outlet on the pump, it only has the two openings for fuel from tank and then from pump to carb. 
Do I need to return the pump and get one with a return line? Or can I just cap the return line and be ok?

Thanks!
Derik
