    I had a damn hard time with the starter in the escalade but the setup is different vs a 2500. For towing with stalls, the higher up you go the more heat you have. So I would expect that to be the reason why it decreases towing capacity. Stock stall is something like 2600... plenty for a decent...

    Gotta love project creep lol. Keep up the good work man. Doing the pan on the escalade I broke the dipatick tube attempting to remove it... and again when I snapped off the new one installing. That thin metal is damn expensive.:bonk: Its funny. When I did the top end on the 84 vette which has...

    All good. Used it once on a taper fit prop shaft. Big old 1-1/2 fit with a 2 inch nut used to compress the taper to the collar. Popped it in reverse and it sheared off the keyway. Wondering if its a taper vs press fit type thing also. My factory hub was actually installed with rtv on it in the...

    Never seize on a tapper or press fit joint has always been told to me as a no no. Idk why. Keep up the good work.

    I cant figure this one out... (Envoy Denali)

    A lot of paint cover up but... the only really questionable piece is the rear hitch carrier. The rest is par for the course rust... nothing structural but it makes you wonder what else is being hidden...

    SOLVED! HydroBUST(ed); or, how to R&R yours

    Had a Cardone in the escalade for... 2 years now? Worked fine. :tiphat: I could get 3 for the price of one delco lol. Booster isn't hard to replace. 1/4 inch swivels to get to the nuts inside. Your hand will get cut up. But not a terrible job. Maybe an hour. Be careful of the brake light...

    When I did the heads on the vette, I used a block sander lol. I have a .015 shim gasket in there... hasn't leaked yet. Good work friend.

    Am I the only one who saw giant gouges in the paint in the door? According to insurance the 67 has 410 miles on it... stock odometer is at the house... one of the 5 is right I think...

    How graceful does a catalytic age?

    Honest to God it depends. If it completely goes out it can't burn off anymore and will cake. If it slowly drops off I'd speculate it can still burn off particulate... if it starts breaking down it could potentially plug itself. Ive never done one in a 360 but the ones in the escalade were...

    How graceful does a catalytic age?

    Some just drop off a cliff others slowly lose their catalytic ability. When they do start going you'll get a cel in the winter but none in the summer because the added heat helps with efficiency. Mines got 220k miles on it and still works fine. The v8s seem to go quicker... the escalade needed...

    Right signal = high beams ?

    Esclaade did it with 230k. Its just worn out honestly... steering cover is removed without pulling wheel. 45 minute or so job to replace the switch.

    Did GMC Install Basic Bilstein Coil Over Shocks in Envoys?

    I was told by a designer friend that the factory bilstein shocks on the TBSS are exactly in the middle of the regular bilsteins and the aftermarket HD. However finding a new set is difficult...
