  1. My tanks are absolutely spotless, I was completely shocked when I looked inside both tanks, no rust, debris or nothing. Ok great, so the switch in the cab is working correctly. Thanks for the good news.
  2. Hey guys I'm having some trouble with the fuel system on my 3/4 ton. It quit on me the other day so we towed it home. If it sat for a while it would start and run for a minute then would die. Figured it was the fuel pump cause after it would die you'd turn it over and nothing would come out of the line when I disconnected it right at the carb. Put a new pump on it and it fired up and stayed running. However since it was in the shop I figured I'd drop the passenger tank and take a look inside of it cause I didn't think I could get fuel out of it. So I dropped it and looked inside and its bone dry. But when I was driving it and it quit on me, I had the switch set on the drivers tank. So it got me thinking that maybe the fuel pump is fine and maybe its my switch or solenoid that's acting up and sucking fuel out of the passenger tank. It doesn't make sense because before all this happened I could have sworn there was fuel in that passenger tank, yet when you switched to that tank it would run for 30 seconds then quit. So my question is how does this solenoid work? Does the selector switch in the cab change the polarity or alter the voltage to the solenoid to change between the 2 tanks? When it was set to the drivers tank there was 12 volts at the single wire for the solenoid, but when I switched to the passenger tank there was hardly any voltage there, 0.04V or something. I took the solenoid out and you can here it click when I crossed it across the battery both ways, + to the stud & - to the body and reversed, - to the stud & + to the body. Anyways I ordered a new solenoid just in case, one of these:
  3. Hey guys, I have a 1975 GMC Sierra Grande 2WD 3/4 Ton, which I believe makes it a C20? Anyway it's a stock truck and still has the original split rims on it wrapped with 7.50-16LT tires. Now I'd like to get away from the split rims and find some regular rims for it. From what I've found I'll need a 16" rim that has a 8x6.5" bolt pattern. Can someone tell me how new I can go before the rims won't work? Example, would rims off a 2003 Sierra 3/4ton work?

They don't have to be fancy by any means, I'll try getting them from a wrecker once I find a rim/tire combo that'll fit.
