RE: my 1988 chevy truck rebuild.


Well got the core support mounts fixed and bolted back together. Also mounted my new carb! Installed my rocker on the passenger side. But now it needs a cab corner. And got the new door on the drivers side.
Now this week I will try to put on the cab corner and reinstall the fender wells and fenders.
Also removing the bed is in the plans for this week.
And after that will have suspension and brakes left on the list. If it does not grow b4 I am done it always finds a way to grow lol.
Will post pics of work so far tommorow.

 Remember that the flex plate for a V8 will have 4 spots around the diameter, that are commonly always where the starter engages. Check by rotating the flywheel with a screw driver like a ratchet in the the teeth to rotate, and check it all the way around. Also, make sure the flex plate is running true.

If you take hold of the lower arm, you should be able to move it up and down with little effort. And no, the spring is off, there should not be any tension.
