    Weird Knocking Sounds

    C'mon Westy.... aua Sounds like he means the sway bar... but I would suspect a loose steering box before anything else.

    M109A3 conversion in progress, setting the standard

    The other option would be to make your 'house' batteries better... say a pair of 6v golf cart batteries wired in series.

    CUCV-II Road trip FL to CA 2,668 miles

    Phil - those codes are triggered primarily due to air in the fuel system. Make sure you have properly bled it, but also I would suggest pulling the optical sensor off the pump and cleaning it with something. I wonder if it has a 'water slime' on it, and causing it to not read properly. Both...

    CUCV-II Road trip FL to CA 2,668 miles

    I will look at my GMSPO cd tomorrow to get you the troubleshooting info on those codes. Just went to be or I would do it now.

    CUCV-II Road trip FL to CA 2,668 miles

    Very good chance your sock (in the tank) is full of snot now... I would suggest dropping the tank, and cleaning it. After that, verify your lift pump is providing adequate pressure to the IP under load.

    Chat Notice

    Ok, so I have decided to give the old chat another go (after talking with graham and looking at some server issues). I am NOT promising anything!! But for now, we shall use the OLD chat, and will remove the link to the other one, and have it disabled for the moment.

    How do I post a classified add?

    Honestly, I have heard enough complaining about this. Maybe I should just REMOVE the FREE classified ads? It was done for a reason. Enough said.

    24 volt and 6.5 swap

    Well, how much of a swap are you going to do? What year truck is it coming from? Is it a mechanical IP? What are your plans for a computer for the 4L80E?

    CUCV-II, South Florida Rebuild

    Sweet!! Personally I wish the previous owner of my Burb had put in a 0-15 or 0-20 PSI boost, and not a 30. Are you thinking of putting the fuel gauges before and after an aftermarket filter? or stock. I plan to replace/upgrade the lift pump on both my 6.5's, and also put a 30 micron filter in...

    CUCV-II, South Florida Rebuild

    you know - in reality thats not a bad total. We paid around 10k for my wifes 99 Burb a couple years ago - that had 90k on it when we got it, and was a 'semi' common vehicle.

    alt issues with 12v plow working

    I think you are missing something important here. If you activate the plow, and the voltage is dropping like a rock - your plow pump motor could be VERY suspect. I plowed for a long time with my 1009, and never had an issue with the stock alternator. I would have both the pump motor and...
