OK, I'm recovered enough from my injury to get it on my lift again and start tearing into it this weekend. I'm actually looking forward to it as a mystery, and I'm hopeful, especially based on Steve's previous comments. Thanks again to all.

After recovering from my surgery today (injured myself moving the Connie yesterday, as I am kind of little and getting old....), I will give it a shot. Thank you again to everyone.

  You ain't the only one getting too old to move a C10 around but I keep her around to remind me of the GREAT rides I have had with my C10. Wife gets a little jealous though !!

Update: I pulled the valve cover yesterday and found a broken intake rocker arm on #3 (probably due to someone not properly tightening the adjuster lock nut) , a dropped intake valve in that same cylinder and what appears to be a hole in the piston (hard to see). The rest looks OK. I am pulling the head today for a better look. Looks like used parts are plentiful and cheap, making an top-end repair (used loaded head, poss. cylinders and a piston) in my future. If anyone wants to make me a great deal on those parts, please let me know!

 I know it's a crap shoot but plenty of used parts here.

    Good luck. Hope you get her back on the road again.  :great:
