Redneck Restoration's "This Old Truck" 1985 Chevy Silverado Half Ton Project
This was supposed to be the first in the 85 Chevy Half ton series, but I
had a need to post the seat video first. Process is normally to start with
the mechanical and then the cosmetic, which I did, but this is video.
Anything can go anywhere!
Fairly informative about some do's and don'ts, though mostly don'ts. I
don't mind a lot of don'ts. That's how I get 'em cheap! This one gets core
plugs, (soft plugs, freeze plugs) Spark plugs, wires, cap, rotor, air
filter and oil change. Valve cover gaskets and a romp down the road.
More to come!
