  1. Might help is you give us more information M&Y etc.
  2. Why not put a load on each light much cheaper. https://store.ijdmtoy.com/products/wirng-harness-adapter-aa1037
  3. I would say that these items would have to be changed. Intake manifold, Carburetor, Distributer, timing chain cover, some wiring changes will need to be done and fuel regulator along with keeping the PCM to run truck gauges etc. Please give us more info on how & when it quits. Also HEI is electronic ign. I think your going in the wrong direction , have all grounds been cleaned (bright) and dielectric silicone put on joints? has the ign. switch been replaced? has the neutral safety switch been checked out or replaced? Do you have a service manual fo your particular truck? not a Hynes but a GM service manual and are there any codes?
  4. The change to HEI (electronic ign.) and carb. will cost more than to just fix the problem.
  5. Unless posted we think any posts are for gas engines.
  6. Does the truck have original size tires? Larger tires will decrease fuel economy, in fact more aggressive tires will also.
  7. In 2004 GM introduced the returnless fuel system, it lowered vapor emissions mandated by the EPA. Returnless systems improved fuel pumps and eliminated return line and external fuel filter, this cooled down the fuel due to constant recycling of fuel. Its not unheard of for pumps to last 150000+ miles. AC Delco and Delphi are one in the same.
  8. Starting in 04 all 5.3 & 6.0 had a returnless fuel pump these systems are known to last at least 150000 mi without replacement so check your vehicle to see if it has a returnable system, one indicator is no fuel filter on the frame rail it in the tank.
  9. What M&Y is your truck? Overfilling wont damage internals but can damage seals.
  10. Removing the BCM will stop engine from running, power windows, cruise control,lights,windows,radio and much more will be dead.
  11. The evap test is random and will not go out if solenoid is replaced, you must clear with a scanner. If it comes back on later you most likely have a leak.
  12. All exhaust valves have sodium in them to cool.
  13. You need to go to a parts store and buy SS lines and you must have double flairs. Ask someone at NAPA or similar store.
  14. The copper brake lines are ILLEGAL and must be changed for SS or steel lines due to the brake pressure can exceed the burst strength of copper lines. Brake line pressure can exceed 3200 psi. Brake failure can and will occur and towing certainly accelerate the failure. Replace immediately your life is worth it.
