A beautiful place to help one of you figure out your machine!
Janie is getting used to having you guts in and out of my obsession all day long. It’s why I ask to keep me off tangents when we talk. You may say,”That sounds irritating.” Hey, better this than covered with grease and bandages under a 12,000 paper weight!
Because you see, along with having a great day drunk on GMC, we do stuff like a day at Lei Gardens. Its a fair exchange so coming into your loop thru the day has become a big part of my day…..thank you for that experience and that support.
So yeah, give me a call, we’ll fix that thing!So here’s a project I wanted to take a bit here to outline. I feel this is the “balance on the fence” of what to throw out and what to keep when looking at creating a viable vehicle out of a 50 year old telex.
I need to get back to the shop after a day in the park so come back later today and we’ll dig into this one
talk to ya then……
ok so the difficult thing to get your head around on a project such as this has always been understanding “not just what to do but where you can stop” to reach your goal. In this case, this recent purchase was made “eyes open” understanding though his new baby had been well cared for there were many issues that needed to be addressed before making a bet to drive on the open road.
……Example: The radiator had just been replaced. There nothing wrong with our original cooling system other than most being totally worn out. This assembly was taken, thoroughly cleaned, inspected with all parts, hoses, etc. replaced and reinstalled to service the coach as new.
Rear pins loose reward replaced along with everything that was touched…..brakes, bearings, quad bag installed so along with rebuilt bogies it will all work awesome.
Running a remanufactured carb with the motor set up to it, a CVF Racing Serpantine belt system, all ignition parts, new dash AC, electrical system and that big bad MacDaddy dash absolutely cleaned and addressed fuel tanks along with so many more details to list here, pretty soon this puppy WILL be a reliable participant of the open road.
See, this is how you need to look at your GMC if it’s one of the still viable “survivors” and there are many out there.
But much will be needed to be added to those coaches to realize their value. They MUST run and do it reliably. If you’re impressed every time you make a round trip it’s clear you’re waiting for some “shoe to drop” and that’s no way to take a trollop to enjoy.
Please think about these things and where your bundle of joy is. No need to do it all when it’s all not bad….but again, find that line and you will be a happy GMC owner.
Got a new video out on how to set your motor up to run 87 octane ethanol laced fuels. Take a look and you Ranch Hands be sure to pay attention….its for you.
Thanks for the support and we’ll see ya later
I’m “in the office” today so give me a call
