I need to replace both doors on my '73 C20, as well as the bed (yay, rust). So far, I've been searching eBay, Craigslist, and local Facebook groups for scrap trucks/parts. I'm wondering if that's my best bet for finding replacement parts, or if you guys have had success elsewhere, have recommendations for replica sites, etc.

Thanks in advance for any advice!

Hi!

A few months ago, I got my hands on a 1973 C20 big block. I've always wanted a classic/project, and this is definitely it. Currently toying with the idea of converting it to a short bed (it needs to be replaced anyway – might as well make an ordeal out of it). But, that said, I'm looking forward to what I can learn here.

Finally made a storage tray to replace the fiber board boxes that don't hold up for me. I had some thin oak boards left over from a Grandfather clock case build. Boards were planed to 0.3" and edge joined for width. Corners are screwed and glued using a 7/16" square stick for durability. My favorite upholsterer covered the outside with a dark vinyl and the inside with Velcro-able style carpeting. A small dot of Velcro hook on the bottom of a tool box will keep it from moving around. The whole thing attaches to the cab using Velcro strips.

Hey all,

I've got an 87 Chevy V10, and currently it has a fixed column and two speed wipers. After months of shopping around, I have finally found a donor tilt column I can use as a core, as I plan to tilt-swap the truck with a remanned column from a company I found on the interwebs.

My question is this. Basically they only care that I send them a like-model tilt column. I can request for delay, etc. I just have to have the module and lever, they will provide the switch in the new column.

I've found and ordered a delay module off the fleabay, and I can get a new reproduction lever from the usual suspects. Is this all I need? If I have the module and the column has the delay switch installed, this is a plug-n-play operation? I believe that to be the case from what I've been reading on here, but most of those posts were regarding early-80's c/k pickups, so I wanted to ask first before assuming, and if not get a handle on the work I may have in front of me once the remanned column arrives in a few weeks.

81 C10 5.0L 2bbl

My original sender was leaking, so I replaced it with a 60psi unit from Rock Auto

I replaced it, but gauge does not respond to the engine rev'ing, stays low at like 10-15psi

Tested the new sender with my radiator pressure tester to 15-30 psi and it was reading much higher than I was expecting, like 40-60ohms

I also pulled out the gauge and tested the ceramic resistor and it is open (its a pink resistor, but dont know what resistance that equates to, my googlefu couldnt pull up anything)

I ordered a 90ohm resistor and put it on the back and am trying to test it on the bench but its staying over 60psi, I was testing with an old fuel level sender that had some dead spots, so not exactly "precision instruments"

Can anybody help me out with the resistance on the oil pressure gauge (pink color)?

also has anyone seen a higher than expected oil pressure sender resistance?
(its this one https://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo.php?pk=939037&cc=1030723&pt=4588&jsn=18)

Thanks!
