I have a 1978 Chevy truck.  I am desperately searching for a NOS, or used (but clean and straight), original bumper - not a step, i think they call them sport?.  Seems that all the squares always were hit from the rear.  There are a LOT of front bumpers out there.

So..............my inquisitive mind wants to know................ why can you not use a front bumper for a rear bumper?  Is it because of the brace holes do not line up?

Go ahead, laugh,  ;Dbut maybe someone will be kind and can give me the answer. 

Thanks in advance.

Hey guys.
73 C20 here.

I'm also leaking trans fluid from my driveshaft! It appears every single part my 'infamous mechanic' touched has a new problem.
I had him give me a transmission service back in Dec as I was having trouble engaging in first on a cold start.

I've attached pictures, but I appear to be leaking fluid on the driveshaft and on the edge of the pan as well.

Thinking, I'm going to just take this into a shop as it appears to be leaking from multiple places...
At first, I was thinking the seal gave out where the driveshaft meets the trans, but after seeing trans fluid along the edge of the pan too, I just felt utterly defeated at this point with so many things going wrong at once after my mechanics service. Any thoughts?

I need to repaint my air filter housing and I want to paint my master cylinder.  I may also touch up radiator and engine bay wheel wells.  I want to use a flat black and was wondering about any suggestions for the paint.  Will high heat Rustoleum primer and paint be a good choice?  This is not a show truck, this my driver a few times a week, during nice weather, so do not need any fancy ceramic, high priced, shiny paint.

Thanks

I'm trying to install an aftermarket tach in my 84, but can't get anything out of it. I have it grounded to the dash, the red wire is hooked to the only terminal marked "IGN", and the green wire is plugged into the terminal on the cap marked "TACH", but no luck. I was told on another site to tap into the white wire coming out  of the tach port on the cap, but that only goes to the plug for my ac compressor. There are 3 other wires coming out behind the white wire: Brown, Black, and Pink/Red. Do I need to tap into one of those to make the tach work? (I can't post a photo of the wires as the photos are to large.)

Any thoughts on the best complete serpentine system to use?  I initially thought about just getting a stock junkyard system, but I really don't care for the looks.  So, I'm pretty much only considering an aftermarket setup.

There's the Holley mid-mount system

There's March

CVF racing

Blueprint has a system now

Am I leaving something out?

They're all pretty much in the same price ballpark. So, I'm thinking looks could be a deciding factor. But, I'm thinking about replacement parts. What if the waterpump fails? A replacement from Holley is about 400 bucks. What kind of pump do some of these other kits use? Do they just use a kind of generic reverse rotation pump that I could find just about anywhere?
