    Rebuilding FAV #91

    Was this another former Wackenhut Security/Nevada Test Site Security Car? With the rear wheels mounted on the car, would there be space on each side for a spare centered where each of the receiver mounts were? And in the movie "(The) Delta Force" were there spare tires or something else...

    Help Identifying Engine Label

    I see the 6.5l engine coolant crossover installed. I would think by 2007 all the pre 1995 GM blocks that had the cooling deficiency issues causing the rear, curbside cylinder to crack, would have been coded out of the system. The only way to tell is the casing markings on the block by the...

    Valve Cover w/ Emission Sticker

    From what I was told there was no National Security Exemption for the 6.5l NA engines for the 1995 build year trucks because it wasn't required as a Cat was part of the exhaust system so the above decal indicates the 1995 6.5l NA GEP engine MEETS the EPA emissions for that model year.

    Whats this tire carrier?

    Reproduction smoke grenade control box - Blank Version COMPLETE!

    Quick question: the enduser is likely to use progressing grit sandpaper to reduce the print lines, although the original has a rough cast finish on most sides. Wouldn't the box itself be better when combined with a 2" x 4.5" x 3/16" thick aluminum base plate to take most of the stress? One...

    General Questions

    Most would have a number stamped into the main housing tube. or engraved. You may have to pull the shock then do max expansion and minimum collapsed length.

    Rebuilding FAV #91

    How did you make out with the front beam torsion bars? I'm hoping at least your rear trailing arm torsion bars are good, so you don't have to go through what Mogman did. I'da thrown a crescent (tm) wrench when the first 3/8" thick plate bent trying to pull them out.
