    Spent all afternoon and evening on the Stepside!!! :p:
    What a sweet running truck now. :laugh:
    Four new shocks, greased all the steering parts, tried to get it to idle and run smoother. Ended up buying a timing light and I had a dwell meter already. Set the timing right on, dwell right on, idle mix and speed............simple stuff, but very time consuming and da six was hot to the touch!!!

    Man, it just purrs now and rides and runs like a new truck!!!
    Still have a shimmy, but I'd bet it's unbalanced tires. No play in the front bearings. The feller I bought it from just mounted these and put them on I'd say. I've seen him do that for other people before..........:rolleyes:

    Anyway..........sweeeeeeeeeeet Steppy now!!! :D
