It was Mothers day, my kids had a big luncheon planed in Chicago.

Packed up the Glassnose after all the changes and drove off to the big city. Wife and dogs passengers, high confidence level!!

Trip went as planned there and back, no problems, starter worked well even when it was hot, I did stop for gas and a quick look around the RV about half way in.

The whole trip was about 250 miles, in the past that would have been a quart plus of oil, checked it this morning maybe down a bit less than a half quart. So valve oil seals and new PCV may have helped. I hope more use makes it better. Gonna try a lake trip this week with the boat in tow!! I used less than 30 gallons of fuel, about 8 mpg.

A more accurate mileage check, shows it is closer to 9 mpg!!

You can install a starter for a 1999 chevy s10 with a 4.3. its the same as one for a 99 454 they are the small gear reduction starters work great.
