Sometimes I have electric and sometimes I don't.  This can very easily be noticed by just looking at the dome light.  With a fully charged, and tested, good battery.  I can sometimes start the truck as normal, and sometimes I have nothing.  I've noticed when I first was thinking it was possibly the battery, while I would have jumpers on, in between trips in to try and start it, if the dome light came on, I would be able to attempt to crank it over, and then during the same jump session, sometimes I would open the door, and no dome light, where then that would be followed by nothing at the ignition.

Where should I start looking?
The leads from the batt. to the starter?
--- I imagine the starter is probably not the issue, as elec. would still pass to the dome light no matter what, right?

1977 GMC Sierra I will make this as short as possible, so please bare with me. I have a 77 sierra that I purchased for $500 in order to have something to put a motor/tranny I had completely redone with nothing to go into.

I am currently deployed and when I return, I need to sell this truck to get in a better financial state and recover 100% financially from a divorce.

I am at the stage to where I need to decide the most cost effective plan to finish body, glass, and paint so I can get the most money out of this truck as possible.

If anyone who has bought and sold these trucks could give me advice, and let me know what information they need about what I have done to the motor, tranny, driveline,truck, and what parts I have left to put on, it would be greatly appreciated. Here are some photos of trucks current state.

Got a few questions on Sport Side mirrors.....

Is the mirrored glass replaceable? I have a two edge chips on a mirror and has a slight tick to it as it sits in the housing; see pics:






Thanks for the help!

Still gotta Paint exterior, install new parts under the hood where you see green, have some powder coating done, install the new tires, clean up wires and engine bay, install interior, Install the ac kit, etc. etc. took me over a year to get where she is now, but the new drivetrain is in and running. She will be a whole new truck in 6-8 months.

Worst part is, she’s gonna get sold when done.

'85 C10 LWB.  Came with a 305 700R.  I put a 350 in it with a cam.  I removed all the smog stuff along with the vacuum sensors on the engine.  The vacuum switch on the firewall by the brake booster is still connected. New kick down cable adjusted(I think) correctly.  I upshifts fine and downshifts but will not shift down when passing, I have to pull it down to 3rd.  When the lock up is plugged in on the drivers side of the trans it hunts around and locks up all over the place.  It will unlock when the brake is depressed momentarily then lock up again.  I am going to install a lock up kit(which one is recommended?) to fix the lock up issue but am confused on why it won't drop a gear when passing.  I have the Holley tv cable bracket on the 4150 carb.

Thanks
