I'm almost embarrassed to ask this question, but my memory is failing with years...

I have a 76 Chevy truck.  It has 520,000 miles on the frame.  The 350 engine went out years ago and I replaced it with a 1984 (or so) 305.  That engine had more miles on it than the one I took out and is now over 600K!  For the first time, the water pump is leaking.  I thought no problem...look at RockAuto.  BUT....apparently 305 wasn't an option in 76 trucks.  They list a number of pumps for 350.  I looked at 84 305 water pumps.  Again a number of pumps were listed, but the numbers were different from those for the 350.  So...Now for my question.....
Is the short vs. long pump issue the only thing to worry about or is (are) there other things to cause problems?  Does anyone have a recommendation on which pump to use?  I want to try for another 600K!

Sorry for so many words....I hope one of you guys can help me!
Thanks, David. (truxson)

Hey guys, I finally got a forum profile created. Just finished up my truck for SEMA about a month ago and won top 10 in the young guns and top 40 overall! I couldn't be happier with the results. What do you guys think?

So I recently replaced the taillamps on my '77 K20.  I got the taillamps as an assembly with the housing, lens and gasket that goes between the housing and lens, but did not get the gasket that goes on the back of the housing that goes between the bed-sides and the housing!

I can't seem to find these!  Does any parts house offer these?

Kim sorry but I am having trouble finding this info.

I want to switch from 15" rims to 16"  and I have the opportunity to grab some stock 16"'s from a 90's Chev.

Does anyone know it they will fit over the front hub??

For those who either want to upgrade their quad headlight wiring to a relay powered system that also turns on all 4 headlights or for someone looking to do the conversion and wants to upgrade the wiring at the same time, here is a diagram with some before & after results:

You can also use this for any other similar application such as offroad lights
