It's been since April 17th when I bought an '80 GMC 4x4 Crew Cab in BC Canada. I finally went to pick it up this weekend. 1st leg of the journey is from the Spokane home to 2nd home in Ione, this time towing a Suburban. First tow with the 454 motor out of the motorhome in the Little Crew cab. Re-packed the wheel bearings on the trailer, changed 2 tires (which involved grinding off two spinning wheel studs and replacing them. The 454 from the motorhome seems less powerful than the last one. I still have yet to figure that one out. I'm thinking the intake and cam are in conflict. Sunday, went up to Nakusp, BC, and a bit further to get the parts truck. My mom, her boyfriend and my grandpa went up with for the drive in her Dakota, and we used it to pull the truck on the trailer. The '80 Crew Cab weighed enough that the rear trailer tires rubbed the fenders. I made something work. (my hair was even worse when I woke up) It was a scenic drive. Finally home again (2nd home). The border crossing was surprisingly painless. I presented by bill-of-sale for the parts of the truck explaining it was "parts only", and I had to explain to the Border Patrol the motor was non-running and unrepairable and would never run or drive again. Just add a distributor, and plug wires (which were missing... the truck sat 6 years), as well as a different carb and some used plugs I cleaned up. Changed the starter and it runs good. Doesn't even smoke. Has lots of power. Then loaded up a friend's truck (which has been sitting broken since the mud races) and brought it back to Spokane tonight. Now I only have 3 more friend's broken down rigs to transport back to town after this.
