I have a 1986 C10 CD with a 305 that keeps deiseling every time I try to shut it off, old owner has bypassed some of the vacuum when they changed the carb to an Eddie 1406, and timing is supposedly in order according to a mechanic I brought it to (I don't have a timing light or anything like that). I'm not particularly familiar with older trucks and my dad is more familiar with the even older ones than mine. Mine has HEI. Just replaced plugs and wires and tightened down the intake manifold bolts that I found were halfway out on the passenger side while doing the wires. Was hoping that would fix it but still deiseling. Please let me know if you have any idea as to what might be causing it.

Scored some spare transmissions last week. Picked them up from a scrap yard that went out of business. Got a rebuilt A833/MY6/MM7 four speed standard and a 700R4 for $50 each.

They already sold most of their inventory. Apparently they had shelves full of rebuilt Muncie 4 speeds that they sent to the scrapper because nobody wanted them. They still have some stuff sitting around. Had an LS (4.8 or 5.3 I think) for $550. Also a 4L80E and I think some 4L60E.  Random other items. Anyone in SW Missouri wants one of those shoot me message.

Here is a picture of my latest addition to the spare stuff pile.

I seem to recall seeing door skins for our trucks on a couple of websites a few years back.  They were full door skins, except for the window surround.  In other words, they were complete from the bottom of the door up to the window.  I can't find any reference to these anywhere these days.  Does anyone else remember these? If so, what happened to them?

I was trying to remove my dash pad in my '87 Suburban Silverado recently and got a bit careless. I didn't realize the vent ducting was held up against the openings with these little plastic studs and nuts. They broke off and fell out. What can I do about this? I haven't really stuck my head up in there yet but is there a replaceable part around the vent that I can get? I don't think glue would be a viable option for this.

My A6 compressor has bit the dust again. Last time replaced was  8/23/2019.  Not sure if I want to use another rebuilt one or go with another style. Found this website and wondered if anyone has used one of these before.
If anyone has had good luck with another brand, please let me know.
