    Crank accessory pulley wobble

    My concern is can the wobble be considered failure? Trauma? Wear? If so what is the method of failure? What causes the change? I know most 80's and earlier V-8 chevy crank pulleys do not run true like today's cars but at what point do we call the 6.2L pulley bad?

    Batteries wired up 24v in series

    Drove 50 miles to look at a M1008 this morning. Some one had stolen and cut the batteries out of it. The owner rewired it up best he could but wired it up straight 24v connecting one battery to the other in series. He said currently he could jump start it but it would not start on it's own...
