Listen up boys its story time...and its even truck related I hadnt messed with my 71 C20 in a while. So last night after work I went to napa and picked up a oil filter for it since the oil really needed to be changed and I had been putting it off. I took off from work at 3 and drove the 60 miles back to my parents house for the weekend. I went to start the 71 up. Wont start...hmm. So i pulled the fuel filter out of the carb and gave her the old suck and blew... . Put it back in and when to start it again. Still wouldnt start, what the heck. So i tap on the carb and fuel pump with a wrench...took right off I pulled it out of our cold shed and into our heated shop. Started droppin the oil and left to go get the filter out of my blazer. Come back in and sure enough i forget to move the pan over for when the oil would of came straight down. I finish the oil change and found a bottle of seafoam i had bought awhile back. Figured what the hell couldnt hurt. I put it in the carb and shut the truck off. I wait the 5 min and go to start it back up. Nothin. So i pull the filter off again, and tap on the stuff. Would start but only run of a few seconds. Then I notice the fuel line goin into the filter is leakin. I take it off and throw some teflon tape on it, Problem solved started up ran about 20 seconds and died. I noticed the carb was drippin from somewhere near the vacum choke thingy(i dont know much about carbs). I figured to hell with it I deal with it tommorrow im hungry and gonna go eat. My thought was to just start the truck and pull it ahead...if only it were that simple. I started cranking it and it wouldnt take off for nothin, im pumpin the gas then i just held it to the floor thinkin I flooded it. Next thing I know i see an orange glow on the wall...DAMNIT. I grab my sweatshirt and try to snuff it out that sure as hell didnt work, All I could think about was all the pics of burnt up trucks on CK5, and how I was gonna explain to my dad why our 4 car shop was burned down and why the truck my grandpa drey bought new in 71 was destroyed. I then went for the floor dry, tripin over the floor jack I hadnt put away and smoking my knee on the cement. I got up as fast as i could, which was still pretty slow. Got the floor dry and proceded to pretty much cover the motor in it. Get this afterwords it started up and ran decent for about a minute before dieing again. Only damage I found that was caused was the throttle cable Ate it. Melted a peice between the carb attachpoint and the little bracket. When I step on the pedal it works, but it wont return to idle by itself. It binds up. So anyway Carb rebuild kit or soemthing in the future, prolly near future. Hopefully my dad wont be pissed and instead be happy his son got some ambition for once.
