    Ignition tumbler will not come out

    Interesting, thanks for the info. I went to the parts store and ended up using a tumbler from a 73 truck so they must have all used the same style tumbler or else I just got lucky.

    Ignition tumbler will not come out

    I initially thought that maybe the retaining screw was sheared off but it turns out it was just the old style tumbler from the 70s pickups. So someone swapped in a new column at some point

    Ignition tumbler will not come out

    Well it turns out that apparently my steering column was swapped out with an earlier one at some point because I able to depress the retainer in the narrow vertical slot right to the lower left of the turn signal assembly mounting bracket. The tumbler say 73 Y2 on it so I'm guessing this column...

    Ignition tumbler will not come out

    Hey guys, my tumbler finally got stuck and I couldn't turn the truck off with the key so I am in the middle of replacing it. I'm all the way down to removing the tumbler itself but there is no screw holding it into the steering column, the hole is just empty but the tumbler still won't come out...

    Lights go out when pressing brake pedal

    If anyone sees this thread and is having a similar issue, cucvrs was correct it was an issue with that fuse. Specifically, I have expanded circuit coming off of that fuse using a spade adapter that was keeping the fuse from completely seating back into the holder after I checked it. I tried...

    Lights go out when pressing brake pedal

    There's a good chance that I messed up those pins when checking fuses after the fusible link melted then. Thanks for the idea, I'll check it out.

    Lights go out when pressing brake pedal

    Hey guys, I tried searching through old posts and couldn't find anything similar to the issue I'm having. So my issue is when I first started the truck, the dash lights and head and tail lights all work but as soon as do anything that seems like it would draw more power, like press the brake...

    GM 8 vs HX35 turbo for boost control

    I currently have an old GM 4 on my 6.2 that is on it's last leg and I'm trying to decide which direction to go with my next turbo. I know I can easily mount up either an HX35 or GM 8 for cheap since all of the fab work is done and there is a custom downpipe available for the HX35. So my question...

    M1008 Won't Start - Clicks then tries to turn over but won't start

    If I do need to replace the starter, how do I know which one to buy as replacement without looking at the part number first since it has been converted to 12v? I would like to have all the parts needed before I start just in case the parts store needs to order it.

    M1008 Won't Start - Clicks then tries to turn over but won't start

    So a day or so after I installed a lift on my 1985 m1008, I began to have this problem. I get in, turn the key and all I get is *click click click* over and over. I wait a little while, come back to try it again and the clicks are gone and it is slowly trying to turn over but it is sounds as if...
