You're probably right there, I probably did just get lucky.
It was a 1979 C20 3+3 "Camper Special" that was pretty rusted out (except for the tailgate which was pristine!)

It was on propane as well, and had something like 80,000 miles on the clock.
Compression was fairly consistant in the 135-145 range.

It was in bad need of a tune-up, and had numerous vacuum leaks ... especially the vacuum modulator.

The balancer was also seperated and wobbling, and the crank bolt hole was stripped. Typical "backyarder" DIY stuff.

I threw in a set of plugs, wires, cap, and rotor ... along with a buck's worth of vacuum hose ... which really woke this old girl up! *Almost* considered a "paint it up pretty and run it as is" scenario ... but decided to just do it right.
