Parking the SM465
« on: May 01, 2020, 09:04:59 AM »
I hope you guys don't mind all my dumb questions.  My 1979 K20 has the manual SM465.  The parking brake does not work.  Until I get around to fixing it the parking brake, what is the best way to park this thing?  Leave in 3rd gear?

First on flat or uphill with the wheels turned away from the curb, reverse going downhill with wheels turned toward the curb.
