1971 C10 Chevrolet Pickup Truck Restoration Turbo LS1 Part 2
It doesn't look like much at this stage, but the truck will have some
serious man hours spent on it. We plan on a green and silver colour scheme.
Rolland has fabricated parts of the windscreen sills, due to rust issues.
Everything will be new or restored on this truck. We sourced a Holden
Statesmen for the motor conversion. A 5.7L Holden V8 motor will be used. It
will be pulled apart for a complete rebuild.
There was a small amount of rust repair work performed on the firewall. A
section of it has been smoothed out for a tidy look. A glimpse of the
silver paint can be seen on the doors, sills and the firewall. The LS1 has
been opened and inspected. Current plans are to stroke it 408 cubic inches,
with a trick head and cam package for the time being.
Stay tuned for part 3, for the motor build.
How to Start a Yamaha after it's been left for years in the garden
Here we have a 1985 Yamaha FZ750. It is the very rare 2GH model as ridden
by Eddie Lawson in the 1986 Daytona 200 to victory with full livery by Troy
Lee Designs. Sadly it has been left for years outside in a garden with the
sea air/rain on it with nothing but a sheet over it. I have removed the
petrol tank to access the fuel supply and have repaired some of the faulty
wiring which probably was the cause of this superbikes demise. I am now
going to completely strip the bike down and restore her to her former
while I welcome constructive comments, I will not tolerate foul language,
swear words and any racist or other comments which may be deemed offensive
to some people
If you make any such comments that comment will be removed and you will be

bear this in mind.
Kind Regards, John OHanlon.
