Hi, I'm new here. I just bought an '87 Chev 3500 dump and looking for info on repairs and trouble shooting. It's in real good condition with 70K mi. I'm trying to figure out why the cranking time is so long. It has fuel injection and a 350 engine.

I have a 77 4x4 with a totally rusted bed and a 87 with a near perfect bed.
What will I need to make it fit? 
Will it just bolt on??

So this may be a newbie question. I've reed through the 14 bolt bible and can't seem to find what I'm looking for. A buddy has a good 14 ff that he will sell me for cheap. He sais it came out of a 1970 k20 so my question is would it be a direct fit under the rear of my 81 k10 or is the axle set up with different perches etc.. ??

I recently put two new exhaust manifolds on my 86' K20.  The studs that came with the kit seem to be too long.  I have a feeling I am suppose to have the stock hear risers in place to make up the gap.  The heat riser didn't seem to be functioning as the control arm was not attached to the exhaust flow valve.  So two fold question.. The truck warms up fine even in cold weather, so I'm thinking about going without.  Is that a smart move for the truck?  If so, what size/type studs should I go with to shorten the gap and allow me to tighten everything down?

Just curious of the best way to narrow down a vibration I have..It vibrates when I let off the gas, I've separated converter from engine and it seemed better.Trucks been lowered, I set all angles equal but opposite and shafts has been balanced..The vibration seemed to get worse when I added an h-pipe in the dual exhaust with 40 series flowmasters..Drove it for awhile and it had a constant oscillating vibration at 50-55mph, then I cut the two east hangers closet to the cab so just the rear hangers are holding exhaust up; the vibration got better.Now it only does it when I let off the gas..I just wanna make sure the converter is good, I'd hate to make my engine rear seal leak or worse..Its a rebuilt 350c and converter was whatever trans shop put in (factory stall)..I'm not sure where they get the converters but I don't trust it (cheapy)..I've chased that vibration forever, but I'm sure I had it from several different places through the build and sometimes made it better but still have this slight vibration..I is dropped4-6 and done r8ght, new tires ..Everything but rear gear has been rebuilt, any suggestions??
