    Well I left for Afghanistan back in March, I came home for 2 week R&R last week and got a call last night, telling me not to come back. My unit is coming home early. Very good news. Before i left i had bought my 83 K5. On t he drive home i threw a rod, so it was out of comission. I had pulled the motor and began installing one i got from junk yard but had no time to finish the swap. So finally after 8 months i can back under the hood and get the beast running again. Hopefully i remeber where all the hoses and wires go. Wish me luck, ill be on here asking yall for your help. Thank you in advance.

    It's still here, in one piece, thanks to folks like yourself.
