    just a bit ago i traded a local guy a normal everyday used HEI cap for entire a/c crompressor setup off his running 84 c-10 305 4bbl pickup, gonna use it all in my 82 trans am 305 project car, heh, both parts are low dollar common as dirt but i thought its a pretty ok trade, for my t/a's sake anyways, i dunno,

    what kinds of parts trades you make recently ? mine today was just a piddly one compared to anyone elses i bet, hehe,, now i just need a condensor core and the smallest a/c line that runs across radiator support, for the car,

    i traded a pressure switch to a air compressor for body work and a paint job by a old body fender and paint hippy with a really raked & extended harley chopper like you would see from the 70's the switch to turn on and off the compressor at certain air pressures today he did the rest of the small dings and dents

    Last week I bought a '79 K5 with factory air, cruise, sunroof, 2" lift with 33's, 350/TH350/203 combo for $200 after the starter died and the owner left it out in the rain for 6 months with no hood or top. I drained all the oil and water out of the engine, took off the carb, and spun the engine over with the supposedly bad starter. I added 4 qts of oil and 1 qt atf, threw on a used Q-jet, then dug the used plugs out of the trash that I swapped out of my K10 earlier in the week. The battery was an Everstart from Walmart and since it was less than 3 years old, they traded me a brand new one. The truck started on the third try and after adding 4 qts of atf to the tranny, I drove it around the yard.

    I traded a bone stock, sitting in a bucket, Rochester Q-jet for an Edelbrock Q-jet straight across. Guy thought his carb was screwed up so wanted a stocker. Gave him one and told might need rebuild, he said OK. I slapped that edelbrock on and haven't done a thing to it. Score. :laugh:
