1981 Silverado update December 2010
A nice day to take the old truck for a drive. Recently installed a NOS gas gauge, and climate control unit. Family owned since 1981, I'm the second owner of this truck, and my Grandfather bought it new. The 305 was replaced with a crate 350 no emissions, and GM Performance serpentine belt kit in 2007. Also new paint this year in the factory original colors, and new original interior except headliner done in 2008. Headliner replaced in 1990 is still good. I'll replace it with the original style perforated vinyl if it sags. Close to original as I can get. 143,684 miles. Not bad for nearly 30 years. Everything works except the windshield washer. I cut the sound way down on the exterior shots because the wind noise was real loud.
The Datsun 510 "Differential" differential
This is a real world "where the rubber meets the road" study of the differences between an 'open' vs. a 'welded' differential. The police paid us a visit about five minutes after we were done.
First WOT Run Since 212X Install
I'm still getting my SCT Tune down but its a good idea of how far its come in the past year or so. Im still having an oil issue spitting up from the EGR hmmmm haven't figured that one out yet. I wishIi could have done this from a dig but since i blew my 456s out I haven't installed anything aftermarket in the new rearend so its just 392s with an open differential. I say that because all of my previous runs (videos) were done with the 456s and a DTT Posi. I'm on the same tire height and wheel combo so if it looks slower rappin up just look at the MPH speedo - thats what I had to do haha! enjoy!
oh i almost forgot -
