Plan my day

My S-10 beater truck is starting to have starter problems, the bendix is going out & sometimes you have to hit the key 2 or 3 times to get it to start. I could fix this today, but I think it will last another week or so.

Or my other plan for the day is to go look for a good set of electric cooling fans for my Project & a Driveshaft that fits it @ the junk yard. I guess I could even look for the starter at the junkyard too & that would take care of a few things.

Hey Jamnut

maybe while your at the yard, the bendix will crap out, and you'll have to do the do........ maybe not, i hope not....
lol when i was in school, i worked weekends doing home health, the first stop i made, i got out, freakin radiator had sprung a pinhole leak. stopped at a crappymart and got some stop leak, as long as i popped the cap when i stopped, it wouldn't build up enough pressure to blow...... so on my last stop of the day, i go to leave and my freakin starter has decided to puke. thank God i was on a hill........
good luck.

Crazy Larry,

I was actually thinking about getting the starter on the way to the junkyard, I'll have all the tools needed to do the swap & that way if the starter goes out, I can change it on the spot, if it makes it, I will put the truck on the ramps & go at it with the air ratchet when I get home. With the airtools & the truck on ramps it should go quickly, except for it looks like one of the exhaust crossover pipes might need to be dropped so that I can access the starter. I can't put the truck on jackstands, because I have all 6 of my jack stands holding up my project. :p

I've got 6 jack stands holding up my GMC Diablo Project right now. All I have left is a bent up set of metal ramps that I won't lay under & a set of Rhino Ramps & those things are only about 5" tall, but good for the 4th Gen Formula we have.


I found the perfect drive shaft for the Diablo, if you are building an Elcamino / Diablo & decide to run a short shaft TH 350 your drive shaft will be 3" too short. I found that the drive shaft off of an old Sedan Deville works just great. I also got 2 very nice electric cooling fans out of 2 different caddys & a very nice aluminum Cadillac radiator that's a little bit bigger than the stock Diablo one is. So now I can save the $1000 that I was going to dump on a BeCool kit with fans & electronics. Also got me a nice coolant catch can out of a caddy. I like using caddy parts for customs, due to the fact that most of their electric fans are big to cool those transverse mounted V8's & the radiators are good for the same reason. I also figure that the Sedan Deville drive shaft will work perfect due to the weight of a caddy. Been a good day @ the junk yard.
