Jason reached out to me late at night and asked if I could help him bring the custom 2500 Suburban his late father bought new back from Oklahoma. He had reached out to every local tow company he could and they all wanted $1,200 to $1,500 to send a truck to OKC. I said, "Yup, let's go, and we've gotta go now!" We jumped in the truck, grabbed the trailer, and pointed the rig south around midnight.

Love that body style, the GMT400s are my favorite. I had a 1999 GMC K1500 Sierra Classic that got totaled, now I'm rebuilding a factory 1999 Chevrolet K2500 Suburban 6.5L Detroit Diesel V8. Love the channel, btw, keep up the great content.

The pressure relief valve is bad and allowing the fuel to dump in the intake. Thats why the fire kept burning in the intake. Common failure on those trucks. Also the cap and rotor are probably bad which makes the timing seem off.

Hey JRGo I stopped by today and met your neighbor that worked on the Z with you. Nice guy for sure :-) (Won’t say his name to protect privacy) Love what you guys are doing. If you ever need a hand working on anything let me know. To spin a wrench or anything. Would love to meet ya and hang out in the garage sometime. I know a lot about cars too and do it all myself too :-) Got to see your Z28 today ... it’s funny because that the same first sports car I ever had too!!! The exact same Z28 same color and stripes !!

Those dang spider injectors are aggravating....the do sell a set of newer multi port injectors that drop in, taking the place of the spider assembly. I had a 350, replaced the dizzy...plugs...but always ran like crap...replaced the crap spider assembly with the new injector assembly. Ran like a sewing machine.

I have a 97 suburban. Pull the distributor and have a look it could be a cap and rotor but the drive gear can wear. Shimming the distributor gear to 0.010 is a good idea as the rotors are not so good.

One of my friends has a 3/4 ton Suburban. The Beast used to have a 350 but now it has a 454. Uses it to pull his drag car. Gets the same mileage unloaded and much better when towing.

My 454 liked to eat the gear on the distributor, 350s did the same i believe. The 350 and 454 used different fuel injection systems, spider vs. LS style injectors. I like my diesel, but man I love a 454 big block.

Could you have unhooked the trailer and used the truck to tow it on to the trailer? Or get a winch to fit on the truck bed/hitch? If not you could mount a winch out of the way and fix a pulley on/near the tow head on the trailer?

With engines that have sat for a long time, a couple times I've had issues with stuck lifters that cause backfires, making it look like a timing issue when it really isn't. What I've done before is just pull the fuel pump relay and crank it for a while to get oil circulating, and that hopefully will free up that lifter
