    (Mods: Putting this in 'Towing', although if it's a better fit for 'Off-Road', feel free to reclassify it. Thx) Wondering if a winch for a RWD truck is considered 'heresy' or 'blasphemy'... or 'idiotic' :undecided::laugh: I'll explain... I want to install a winch setup in my garage (floor)...

    Lost a turn signal in my D/S tow mirror - repairable?

    I noticed the other day that I lost the turn signal in my Sierra's driver's side tow mirror (these are the older ones that came on the NBS / 'Classic' trucks, and mine is probably a knockoff, as I'm pretty sure it came with the stock 'paddle' type). But mine do have the signals & heaters...

    So... I've been offline for a bit; maybe we'll subtitle this thread "What I did over my summer vacation" :laugh: (Note: This is going to be in at least two parts, as GMTN has a 10K character limit per post, and I know I'm > 15,000 already) Covers: 99-06, 07 'Classic' GMT800 series (photos...

    FYI - Gas Prices shooting up (TX refinery shutdowns)

    Of course, we don't know how truthful the given reason is... but that's what's claimed. Due to weather and power outages, of course. I didn't buy gas today, but my daily check of Gas Buddy app showed prices in my area a good +0.30 USD higher than it was yesterday. Probably going up further...

    Can this be repaired?

    (note: This is not my Envoy, but a SWB TB that someone is selling fairly cheap, because of this issue.) From their ad: "On the left rear where the rear axel anti roll bar mounts to the car, it has rusted and come loose. It has been this way for awhile and I still drive it every day....but...

    FOR SALE Anyone looking for an LBZ Duramax?

Loaded up, too. 286,000mi, but if it was well-cared for, it's got another 200K left in it. The interior looks nice, and rust doesn't look to be an issue (from the few pics...

    Scan tool for Honda/Asian cars?

    I need to get my hands on a scan tool that can do SRS codes on Honda / Asian cars. Looking for accurate, but cheap. Torque Pro doesn't work for this (I tried). Any recommendations, before I go and spend a day or two researching candidates? :laugh:

    My fuel gage is slower than I am, now

    So I finally fire up the Sierra with its new 340lph fuel pump & u-joints, so I can get it out of the garage, and another vehicle in. 3 in the stable again, and something needs repair on all three. Can't win... LOL :rolleyes: 1st thing I noted was that the engine still took an extended crank...

    Next project vehicle - thinking about this one...

    Been thinking about getting an F-body (2nd or 3rd gen) to fix up. I had a '75 Camaro years ago (ugly as sh!t, but it was a fun car to drive, and the only one I ever sold for more than I paid for it). Not looking for a restoration candidate - just something to maybe do an LS swap into, unless...

    Fuel (pump) for discussion

    So today, I figured out that my Sierra's new (but recurring) 'crank / no start at initial try' isn't due to a tuning issue, etc. - it's likely an issue with the check valve in the fuel pump going bad (fuel system loses pressurization). Solution is to apparently replace the pump. Which, while...

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

    Posting this in hopes someone might have gone through this, and can chime in while I research further. As part of my build, I purchased a seal kit for the hydroboost module in the Sierra, because fluid was coming out of the weep hole (square / notched area on the bottom, facing the ground)...

    Thinking of 'expanding' my engine build

    As I view the effects of 17yrs & 235K of combustion events on the inner block walls (and I haven't even taken the pan off, yet!), I'm starting to think that I might put myself in a good spot to at least clean (hot tank) the block, and maybe more. Reviewing my inbound parts orders, I've got...

    SOLVED! Stuck cam - suspected bearing was spun (but wasn't)

    Headed back in the garage today to proceed with my project. Got the other head off, all the lifters out (that was fun!), the valley cover off (even more fun)... and now I'm having some REAL fun... Turns out my cam won't move (yes, I removed the retainer plate!). Very occasionally, I can get...

    Use, Fix, or Trash

    I'd like opinions on the photos here, if you'd be so kind. Not the image quality, of course - the condition of the head. This is from a rebuilt set of 317s that I got nearly a year ago (so returning them is a 'ship that's sailed'). When I got them, I chased all the exhaust and spark plug...

    Reprise's 2003 Sierra Build Project - Blue Crush

    So, as we all get used to 'life under coronavirus', I've reconsidered having the rear axle noise diagnosed / fixed before beginning my long-planned (and long-promised!) build. Partially, it's because I'm now suspecting that the noise I'm hearing may be U-joint / driveshaft / pinion related, and...

    "The truck has 421000 miles, it does run and drive"

    Saw this in a local CL ad today for a 2001 Suburban partout (5.3L). Warms the heart to see that kind of mileage and still running (maintenance history unknown). That's diesel longevity, frankly. If I ever got that kind of mileage out of a vehicle, I think I'd put it on a raised platform in...

Need to call the guy tomorrow & ask questions (among them being whether it's the 9.25" ring gear (what came in the HD trucks). He has no pic, but he did respond to my...

    Replacement rear outer pinion seal (8.6" rear)

    Just wondering if anyone had replaced their leaky pinion seal with the revised 'triple lip' seal? (GM #: 26064028 ) If it'll seal better, I'm interested - but from what I see, this seal is a two-piece design, and requires either yoke replacement or a special sleeve adapter to accommodate...

    Insurance write-offs / salvage buy-backs, etc. (liability vs. 'full coverage')

    As I noted a few minutes ago, 'book value' of my '03 Envoy is down to $2000, :frown: so any sort of accident (no matter who's at fault) would likely result in a write-off by my insurer (a major company who's been good with claims / settlements). At that value, I've been thinking that maybe...
