I guess that is one way to sneak Ford castings into a GM production line.
Oh, yeah, I forgot about the Poncho.
We all try to.
For some general GM wiring practices
Red---generally direct battery power and may not be fused
Orange--is generally a fused line to the battery-----dome lights and accessories that are powered all the time
White----generally a switched ground path----dome lights----------also feeds turn switch from brake switch
Pink---hot with key on and related to items that operate with ignition
Brown---Accessory separate buss that is also energized with the key in "Run"
Not sure if this will help you, but these are kinda the suggestions I go by when working on GM
This had me questioning myself when I was doing some distributor work on a friend's GTO----I think DeLorean was stoned.
Considering your DeLorean rebate came by the kilo, I'm inclined to agree.
Might as well bring this up again.. Spent a fair amount of money to get the Blazer as a DD, but as of now, it runs nearly perfect (besides the bad valve seats making it smoke)
I'd rather be using the blue '72 as a DD but that will take a lot more work yet.
You mean bad valve guides ?, does it smoke all the time or just on deceleration ? Chevy made hats to go over the valve stem between the head and rocker, other than that try Lucas.
STP can slow that smoking down.
Smokes all the time. Especially at low rpms.
I'll try that
Lucas, the better and improved STP.
Valve guides or rings.
Pull a plug, soot means rings, paste means guides.
If it's the guides, replacing the stem seals will help a lot.
I doubt it's the rings because there's no blow by.
Failed oil rings and failed compression rings often occur together, but not always.
Separate names with a comma.
