I recieved your parts today and will try to ship them tomorrow!
I'm not sure what time it takes to get from the Netherlands to you, it might be 1 to 2 weeks.
I hope after that you can continue working on it!
I'm from The Netherlands and we see a lot of them getting imported.
Cars and trucks build before 1987 can have an oldtimer status. We then pay 100 dollar a year on road tax instead of +/-2400 a year. So buying one with an "old" title, will make it pay for itself.
After 40jr we don't have to...
They often appear for sales, here in The Netherlands.

I have corrected my mistake and also replaced the shoes on the passenger side.
Also readjusted both sides and the parkingbrake again as discribed in the TM.
I made a couple of stops and it all looked good. See the pictures below.
This morning I loaded it up and to the brake test again...
I have just taken the drums of the Chevy.
- brake shoes are correctly mounted. The shoes with the least ammount of brake surface facing forwards.
- both wheel brake cylinders are the same.
Both sides new.
What I do see, and I have forgotten why, is that I only have replaced one side of the...
Yesterday I have tested the brakepressure on both sides of the axle. And both sides had the same pressure on the bleedingscrew. 490psi.
I have added a couple of pictures to this post.

The difference in brake force, between the left and right rear wheel, is about 50%.
2 years ago I did not had this problem.
And no parts had been replaced between both checks.
I can't seem to find what is causing this problem so I...
You can check this Dutch website for the (brake) parts.
Most of the Dutch speak foreign languages, so if you send them a mail they, most likely, will help you getting the parts to you.
Otherwise send me a personal message and I...
I recently also bought a 1977 gmc c6500.

It is still at the sellers location and runs and drives. Will bring it...
It's running again!
Runs great and sounds goooodd!
Still working on it so still without exhaust and carefull on the throttle.
Also ordered a full aluminium radiator because the current one has a small leak.
Some more parts ordered.
This weekend I mounted a new inner and outher fender to search a location for the coolant bottle of the 6.5. Moved the battery a 1/2" to the firewall so it fits between the batteries.
Connected al the coolant hoses and I think this setup will work. Still have to order...
The 6.5 does not have the temperature sensor mounted for the glowplug system.
I will use the baseplate of the 6.2 and will put it on the 6.5.
I'd like to put in a new sensor, only I can't find it on rockauto. Does someone knows the right partnumber on RA? (I prefer to buy it there because the...
