Hi Guys.
73' C20 Here.

I went to turn the truck on and my starter sounded like a dentist drill.
Battery is getting 12.8 volts.
Starter passed the Bench Test, but was under warranty so I swapped it out anyway.

Replaced the new starter and the truck started.
Turned the truck off and went to turn it back on just to test and the dentist drill sound came back.
I tried shimming; half shim on the outer side to push the gear closer to the flywheel, but had the same result: She started once, but not again.

Note: I've only had one bolt (inner bolt) holding the starter in place for the four years that I've owned the truck.
Last year, I found that the outer bolt had been snapped off and it needs to be tapped out.

Any ideas why it's now not engaging for some reason?

Thanks in advance.

Hi all.  It's been quite a while.  I have a silly question.

When you order a new vehicle and check the box for the limited slip diff, typically you get a higher numeric ratio with the diff.  Example:  standard gear ratio on XYZ truck is 3.55 but order a limited slip diff and you automatically get 3.73 gears.

Why is that?

Hello, I too have made the grave mistake of reverse hookup of the battery. It burned the ground wire to the support. I replaced and repaired what Iíve found so far. I have variety problems still but my main concern today are the signals. I have power to start, run and drive. But when I turn on the headlights both directional arrows light up. When I signal either way, the opposite arrow stays lit and flashes only once. I replaced the headlight switch in hopes to fix the problem but all I got is a shiny new switch. When the headlights are off the signals work but seem labored. Iím working on a 85 c20 with the 350 gas engine. Please help me fix this problem as my butt is starting to hurt from kicking it. Thank you in advance.

Just throwing these questions out there for my own confirmation. I have read on some other post's that the frame of a c10 and a k10 are almost identical.

Are they Identical? What are the differences if any? Do the years between 73-87 vary much at all?

Any info would be very appreciated, thanks.
