Hi everyone! Im new and been reading up on countless topics on this site! I love love love this site! It has helped keep my square body on the road many many times, I  sincerely appreciate it   But I still have a ways to go before I have my truck where I want it.  I suppose it will never be where I would like it but a work in progress for the rest of the time I am in possession of it. Now to the meat and potatoes of this post.

Now I have 1984 GMC C3500 with a 454  automatic which I recently drove down to Jacksonville Fl. From Columbus Oh. It took me two days because I was taking my time and taking it easy on my baby.

The first day my truck was riding great! The weather was cooler and thank God for that because of the mountains. My truck  muscled right through it. But on the second day the weather was getting nicer and my truck was running rougher. At first I thought it was a tank of bad gasoline so I babied it threw that tank of gas and put a new tank of gas with the appropriate amount of sea foam but it did not help and it is still running bad after almost a week.

Now what my symptoms are on my truck is that when I get my truck up to 70MPH it would drive fine unless I go to pass someone. If I accelerate to pass it will start to bog down making me have to lay off the gas and gradually  accelerate back to speed (70MPH). It will also happen when I  accelerate too fast or go up steep inclines. All this tends to happen when its nice out but if the weather is cool it drives a lot better. Thats for any advice in advance.

Looking for NEW defrost vents for my 1983 K30.

It is the part that fills the 3 defrost openings on the dash. Here is a link with picture of dash WITHOUT vents.
http://store.73-87chevytrucks.com/merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=7&Product_Code=D100181&Category_Code=DC

I found used ones on Ebay and new ones at USA1.
https://www.usa1industries.com/1981-87-fullsize-chevy-gmc-truck-dash-defrost-black-vent-each.html

I could order the new ones from USA1, but I still can't find the shorter one for the farthest left portion of the dash. Each dash takes two full size ones and 1 short one, and I can't even find the short pieces used.

Anyone got a good source for the short defrost vents, or got any pictures of ones you fabricated?

Just found this forum so figured I'd post my put together.

This truck sort of fell into my lap. I wasn't really looking for a project but a guy at work needed to get rid of it and he even delivered it so here we are.

Trucks a 1987 Silverado package, all the fancy stuff. It's a long bed and the left side of the body has seen better days.

It's got a TBI 350 in it, it's supposed to run but haven't messed with yet. The trans is supposed to be bad but again haven't messed with it.

I bought a mexican short bed for it. Also grabbed a fender and a short bed tank.

As you can see it's gonna be quite a bit of work. I think the windshield sticker nails it.
