#1 of 8 Large to small block,'87 to '78 CK questions
Feb 05, 2008 (11:33 am)
Hello. New Here. Gary's the name. My Pleasure.
I have a beautiful red and white stock 78 CHeyenne CK Camper spcl ww/ 3504blt &350Trans I found on ebay motors w/ 530 original miles when I bought it in Sept. Yea- I know. huh?! It is amazing for its age right down to the brand new bias plys.
I also have a *very fast* 78 Silverado single cab rblt 454(30K) dually camper spl that since moving it to the coast has become a rusty mess but the previous owner spent major some huge money on..
alcoas, step railing w lights, cab top lights, tailgate lights, Jacobs ign. electronics, Gear Vendors overdrive, put in a beaut '93 cloth split seat, all extra gauges, trans cooler, custom grill, class III hitch.. you name it.
There are many interchangeable things I will put on the 78 but I have some questions about the ignition system.
<><>>As the 87 is fuel inj and has electronic (first yr?) distributor, will the Jacobs system come across? I know that it would if it was electronic ignition on both. But it is not. Can I pic a brain or two here ? Thank you.
<><><Also will the gear vendor overdrive come over with out major expense? Wheel base and motor size questions come to mind. Overall wanting to decide whether to just put this up on ebaymotors. Would be a haul for the price it will fetch due to the body rust. Apprec. any help Gary
#2 of 8 Smoking engine
Jun 10, 2008 (8:04 pm)
-I have a 1992 6.5 that is blowing smoke out through the turbo, like popeye smoking his pipe through the filler tube and it tryto push the dip stick out. the oil is gurgling at the dipstick but does not come out on the engine. the engine is not making any noise other than the normal 6.5 's. I would like a response as to what may be the problem. Thanks

my 6.5 somkes through the turbo and pushes the dip stick up where it gurles oil but does not run out of the tube, and if i remove the filler cap it puffs like popeye's pipe is smoking. There is no strange sound in the enwhen it's running.

#6 of 8 Engine stalling problem
Mar 06, 2009 (10:12 am)
I have a 94 Chevy 2500 with a 350 engine throttle body injection. The truck starts fine in AM, drive 4 to 6 miles engine dies, spray starting fluid in air cleaner, engine runs another 4 to 6 miles or if you turn off ignition after driving, engine will crank freely but will not start, spray starting fluid and it starts right away and will run smoothly for awhile, then die again. Changed fuel filter, changed pressure regulator at throttle body, fuel pump was changed about a year ago. Has anyone experienced this or have any ideas what to check next?
