I have been putting this off for a year debating on whether I wanted to put the work into it or sell the old GMC. It has been a good old work and hauling truck and its a light 3/4 ton 4x4 long bed so it is handy to have around even if it isn't pretty. So when the water pump went a few days ago I finally decided to start on it. I went and got the intake gaskets it has needed for over a year and the water pump. I swapped out the intake gaskets and should have the new water pump on and everything buttoned up tomorrow evening. Next weekend I am going to run exhaust and or fix the tail lights and whichever one that I don't get to next weekend I will do the next weekend. I have a brake line to fix and tires to put on it. I am going to add some Lucas to the oil and add another container of Lucas transmission condition to the trans when I change the fluid and filter...oh yeah,there is that rear universal too....lol......Plan is to have it in solid reliable ridge runner shape by early fall.
