Just got a new gauge cluster and it has a tach on. It (my old one never had one). I was wondering how to wire it from trans to gauge.

I want to lower the truck with a 4/6 drop. The front will be spindles and springs (with a HD 1.25" rotor upgrade). In reading about dropping the rear, it seems I'll need an axle flip to get the six inches. I'm not going to use the c-notch kits because I've read posts that show that they weaken the frame significantly and I want to be able to continue to use the truck for hauling and towing. I am OK with a notch as long as it cuts less than half the width of the frame rail. The finite element analysis (FEA) of frame strength after a notch shows that the overall height of the frame is what gives the strength. I haven't seen anyone discussing the mono leaf spring option. They seem like a good choice except for the cost.(https://www.brotherstrucks.com/73-87-REAR-MONO-LEAF-SPRING-SET-REVERSE-EYE-6/productinfo/MLSR087/).  Has anyone used a reverse eye mono leaf spring to lower the rear? And if so, what about frame clearance?

Hello
What is biggest and strongest engine for C/K series? I found only 454/230hp.
Any special series or special orders?
Rules here in Finland are: you can put 20% more horsepower to strongest engine from factory. 230hp x 20%=276hp. Not enough for any LS engine.
I have K10 1983 6.2D , 6"lift, 35" tires and my dream is old truck with new LS-heart, legally.

Thanks and sorry

I recently did intake manifold gaskets on my 5.7 sbc
After getting everything back together, it wonít run. It turns over fine, but I have no spark. I started tracing things back, and I have power at the ignition coil but not the spark terminals on the cap. I replaced the distributor along with the coil, cap, module, everything. Iím pretty stumped, if you have any input I would really appreciate it.

I pulled off my passenger fender and found these two sockets dangling and wanted to know what they connect to. Thanks
