    Well my K-5 is running AWSOME now. I replaced the cap rotor plugs and wires on it. It realy needed new stuff. The plugs i pulled out were all black and had the gap widened .050, the cap had 2 broken towers and corosion on every single terminal. The rotor was in no better shap either. Whith new stuff it idles alot smoother and has better power, I was coming out of the chow hall last night and gave it some gas and it just let loose and sent the K-5 sideways. It was awsome. Thankfully no SPs were around:blush:
    So far i love this truck, it may be twice as big and get half the millage of the LUV but it has 4times the power:D

    A 305 has 4x the power? :blush:

    I should let you drive the Orange Blazer... another 4x the power at .0000675% of the fuel economy.

    I know who you are! Didn't know you were on CK5. When you get that K5? I need to do the same thing to my engine so I can fire up the engine, run that compressor, and get rid of that flat tire!

    That was when it had that oil burning 350 that wouldnt even run anymore. Now it has the 454, well, 454 #2 in it. (468ci to be exact)

    That 350 that was in it when you tried driving it 2 years ago had about 1/4 of the power of the Luv's 4 cylinder.

    My cell phone is dead. I'm lacking any runnable Q-jets carbs. Even the one on the '84 truck that has the plow on it needs to be gone through.

    I just need to slap in my new plugs and wires and fire it up. I've got a york, so once I get it started I'll be able to fill it up. Hopefully it will stop raining for a little this weekend. Thanks for the offer though.

    Hey Dillon, I tried to e-mail and pm you, but it says that you have specified that you don't want to receive messages.
