    93 k1500 - Wire “A” 25 Gen?

    Could it be the alternator warning light? Often alternators are referred to as "gen"erators, so maybe that's what it is.

    How to tell if engine is roller ready?

    Good to know. When this engine comes out, I'd like to rebuild it and make it quite the runner, that's why I'm trying to go with a roller setup. I'd also like to keep the original block if I can, so it's nice to know that I should be able to convert it to a roller block pretty easily. Also some...

    How to tell if engine is roller ready?

    Perfect, that is exactly what I'm looking for! I'll do the valve cover gaskets, intake manifold gaskets, and rebuild the TBI soon; so I'll check it out then. Thank you!

    How to tell if engine is roller ready?

    Hey all, I've looked all over trying to find a definitive way to tell if my block has the roller provisions, but I can't seem to get a clear cut answer. Everything I'm finding is contradictory, people mixing up years and engines, so I'd like to check my engine for myself. It's an LO5 TBI 350...

    Looking for a complete powertrain wiring harness.

    Yeah, I was afraid of that. The thing is that there’s nothing really wrong with the current harness, everything works fine now that I’ve fixed the transmission stuff, but all the clips on the sensors are broken and some of the wires like the CTS on the head and the knock sensor have exposed...

    Looking for a complete powertrain wiring harness.

    Hey all, I have a 1994 GMC K1500 with the TBI 350 and a 4L60E. I’ve been having wiring issues with the transmission harness since the metal holder for the harness at the bell housing has rubbed through the wire loom and is starting to rub through the wires themselves. I’ve patched the spots...

    Truck dies when put in gear.

    Hey all, I’ve got a bit of an issue. I’ve got a 1994 GMC K1500 with the TBI 350 and the 4L60E. The truck starts and runs just fine, but the second it’s put into reverse or drive it dies. Now, if I disconnect the trans fuse it’s goes into gear just fine, but the throttle is a little funky. It...

    88-94 vs. 95-98 Interior Debate

    Oh you do? That's really cool. I've seen 4 in person since I learned about them, definitely not a common package. Is yours a Chevy or GMC? It's interesting because there's no mention of the package on anything other than the Chevrolet order guide. The sales brochures don't mention it, the press...

    88-94 vs. 95-98 Interior Debate

    The Suburban's could be optioned with it for 1994, I've only ever seen gray and tan ones, but there may be red and blue ones, not 100% sure. The pickups also got them only for 1994 with the ZM2 package. They were all extended cab short beds and it was a rare package advertised as the "Silverado...

    88-94 vs. 95-98 Interior Debate

    Personally, I love the early interior. My truck is a 1994 with almost every option and it's really a great place to be. Mine has the power cloth bucket seats and I've been on a 8 hour road trip with a few friends and none of us were even a little bit sore. The rear seat passengers weren't very...

    How to reset TCU on 94' 4L60E?

    Hey all, I recently ordered a new transmission for my truck, and I've been told by shops and trusted friends that as the transmission ages, the TCU adapts to the transmission as it ages and parts start to wear. Because I'm putting a brand new transmission in the truck, I'd like to get the TCU...

    Who has the best reputation for reman 4L60E’s?

    Hey all, the trans in my 94 K1500 has officially kicked the bucket, after a filter and fluid change it soon gained 5 more neutrals and now I need a new one. I haven’t found a good local shop near me, and I don’t know where to start when it comes to an online trans. So hopefully someone can point...

    Newish transmission not working right.

    Truck has been in the family since new, I was the one that took the old and broken trans out and put the new one in back in 2018. Anyways, the "transmission shop" that rebuilt the trans on my truck isn't around anymore. He was a retired transmission mechanic and family friend who passed away in...

    Newish transmission not working right.

    To start things off, I have a stock TBI 350 and a completely rebuilt 20K miles ago 4L60E, the truck is a 4WD and I have plenty of trans cooling, both the trans cooler built into the radiator and a separate auxiliary trans cooler are on the truck. I don’t tow, and I don’t beat on the truck, it’s...

    Looking for new 88-94 Stainless Mirrors

    Hey all, a while ago I converted my 94 Sierra K1500 to the 95+ mirrors, and while it’s nice that they don’t fold in on the highway like the old dumbo mirrors, I lost a lot of visibility, and honestly some of the good looks too. I’d like to buy new ones, but I don’t want poor quality ones that...

    Worth buying 97 Burb?

    Maybe, but with the clear being off for a long tme, I wonder if the base coat is damaged beyond repair? I might give it a shot once everything else is up to ***** with it. Yeah it's been raining a lot here in Oklahoma, the carpets probably soaked, but I can handle that. Far from a deal breaker...

    Worth buying 97 Burb?

    Also, when I went to look at it again, I took a few pictures this time. Notice the clear coat missing on the hood. Also, and you have to look closely for this, the rear window is slightly damaged, “my mechanic said that it’ll buff out.” Maybe it was hard to see the damage in that last...

    Worth buying 97 Burb?

    Got to talk to the guy again, he said that he’ll keep it for me, so I guess later next week I’ll be the proud owner of a 97 Suburban! Wish it was a GMC to go with my Sierra, but a Chevy will do too.

    Worth buying 97 Burb?

    Absolutely, love the GMT400 platform, as soon as I can get the money I’ll buy it. Just hope he doesn’t sell it first.

    Worth buying 97 Burb?

    Won't start at all, the fuel pump makes one little pathetic click and then it doesn't do anythng. Yeah, my 94 K1500 is on it's third trans in 250K miles, not fun to do at all lol. I definitely wanted the barn doors, they're older looking, but I think they're unique. Don't see any modern cars...

    What to do about torsion bars on 94 K1500?

    Good stuff man, I didn't take the torsion bars or lower control arms off today, but everything else is sitting on the workbench. I bought new upper arms so that I didn't have to press the bushings out and/or take the ball joints out, but I have to do it for the lower ones I suppose. Not looking...

    Worth buying 97 Burb?

    Awesome, thanks for the advice. Didn’t even think of the downside of the hole in the floor, guess I gotta use my lift now. And I wouldn’t have thought to bother with the power steering. and as for why I didn’t buy it right there, I checked it out on my lunch break at work and I had just gotten...

    What to do about torsion bars on 94 K1500?

    Hey all, tomorrow I'm dropping my entire suspension on my 94 K1500 to put new parts on, and while I've got almost everything planned out, I know nothing about torsion bars. Is there any way to replace the lower control arm bushings without touching the torsion bars? if not, then, Are the...

    Worth buying 97 Burb?

    Couldn't find a good spot to post this, but the main issue is an engine-related one, so I figured it fit best here. Hey all, I went to look at a 97 C1500 'Burb today, I've wanted a GMT400 or GMT800 Burb for a while, and this one may just be what I'm looking for. It's a bit of a project, but it...
