Thank you sir. I keep pinching myself, it is so nice to have room to work on things. Entire front clip is off now. So pleased everything came off just one bolt that got twisted off, so overall very happy. The only rust repair will be on both fenders lower patches. Core support and everything else looks great. Today will get that big lug of a V6 ready to pull.

Well my parade is getting rained on. My V6 is out and I've completed measuring up everything. I bought a set of main bearings last year and have connecting rod bearing too. The piston bores have a .006" ridge at the top and so it will need a .030 over bore. Problem is I have not been able to source pistons. I can get cylinder sleeves and might be able to use the stock pistons and get them knurled to fit the sleeves. My pandora's box has been opened. I'd love to keep this engine, but it is not looking too good right now. I have another 305 complete motor I picked up and it was stored inside since it was removed. I might pull that one apart and take a look see too. Right now I'm punting the football and will play defense for awhile doing some rust repair in the rockers. I love this old GMC. Having a blast.
Thanks for reading, Steve

I fear the days of the GMC V6 are numbered. I have been doing extensive searches for any and everything for the 305E. As of right now, I have managed to get most all of the engine gaskets. Pistons/rings standard size and over bore are non existent. Of course I could have a set made but not wanting to spend my full engine budget on just 6 slugs. I'm on the fence about abandoning rebuilding efforts. Ive got another engine and will look at that one too.

Thank you Rolland aka snazzypig. Rolland saved the day by offering me his set of oversize 305 pistons complete with rings and wristpins. A thousand thank yous Rolland. I have met so many nice people here with top notch advice to go with. If it wasnt for Rolland my 305 engine would be dead and an off brand would of found its way into my GMC. It is not the same and it would of been a truck that I would of completed but not been in love with anymore.

The front clip is off the truck now and it is time to disassemble the front suspension and steering components. It is getting all new tie rod ends, power assist cylinder and valve. New upper and lower ball joints and A arm bushings plus front bearings and brakes.

I have some serious cleaning to do first. A leaky power steering valve collected about ten pounds of grease and dirt buildup over the last 50 or so years.

Pretty stoked to get started here. Engine is in the machine shop getting hot tanked then bored and honed, crank getting turned, then I'm doing all the assembly there.

Thank you sir, I like to put up some before pictures because once done, we tend to forget about the arduous cleaning projects these tend to be. I've been spending money like a drunken sailor again. Looking forward to a productive spring.

Steve, don't give up!

Remembers me on my control arms. Dirt and grease everywhere. When you have cleaned and painted them the smile on your face will be big
