Chevy - GMC Chassis / Re: Wheel/Tire upgrade from R8 19.5 to 245/70R19 on a P30

Driving it will tell!

Every manufacturer I looked at says that a 6.75 is the minimum width for a 245, so unless I could find new wheels I really didn't want to chance it. I also wasn't very keen about running 225's all around, since they are over an inch shorter and I didn't want the extra RPM on the freeway.

One thing my alignment guy did mention is that since I replaced my front coil/bag setup with modern dual rate springs, that my ride height up front was about an inch taller than the rear. So for shits and giggles, I bought a set of Continental 225/70 R19.5s and mounted on the front. Now the ride height is even and I have 3 more inches of total tire width on the ground up front. Also he couldn't get the caster spec'd the way I've read that Hendersons suggests it, which is +5 right and +6. left, the most he could do was +3 and +4 due the length of the upper control arm bolts. Said he wouldn't shim them any further and not leave at least 3 threads beyond the nut, so I had some new studs custom machined 1/4 longer and took him.

They just called me and said its ready to pick up so im going to go take it for a drive and see what kind of improvement, if any, was made. Wish me luck!

thank you. It's annoying. i can find the whole blinker assembly switch with the correct wiring but not the silly handle to go with it.

Yes I forgot to check if you were a member. You are so Dave's advice is golden.

Simply said as soon as the generator runs it keeps feeding power to the choke. See the manual if you want the technical explanation.

Download the BFA manuals from the members area. It is fully explained in the Controls section of the Gen Service manual 900-0337 (pg 35 for BFA)

A carbon monoxide sensor/smoke detector is always on hand. At my age I've learned that things do happen. Thanks, Jfred.
