Hey,a voice from the southwestern pa
Horace Greely said go west young man, so I did. Greetings from Pittsburgh near the Ohio border. I purchased a 83 J10 from North Carolina last year and looking forward to restoring it. The vehicle is in good shape for its age, PO sprayed POR 15 on the exterior(?). The interior is ok but the bench seat needs to be redone. Thinking of putting bucket seats in but difficult to find mounting brackets.
I had a J10 before and I let it go for some stupid reason. Transmission would not shift and a practically gave it away. Found out that the automatic tranny is vacuum activated and a line had rusted through.
What a bonehead, but I didn't know that at the time.
Current 360 engine has a gm throttle body injection system, runs great. Looking forward to taking my time and doing it right the first time. Easy to say, I' sure being in Pa that I'll hit a few potholes along the way.
