I've lost count - 1988 GMC S-15 Base

Another one.

Won this on eBay for $500.

1988 GMC S-15 Base Sierra Trim w/ 160k. Iron Duke/5 Speed. Hasn't been registered since....2002.

Didn't run, actually engine was locked up. Some kerosene took care of that. Fuel Pump, Tank, and later a new ECU made it run. (Along with general tune up, water pump, radiator, fluid changes, filters, blah blah blah for a vehicle that hasn't run in 16 years.)



Brought it home.



Even came with a window sticker.



One of many reasons why it didn't run.



Broke some stuff.



Dropped the rear 5 inches and did general axle maintenance (Seals, fluid, ect)



She runs.

W.E.G. likes this.



I've had wayyy to many of these trucks. (Currently...on number 7)

1988 S-15 - 5.5/6 drop

1985 S10 Blazer 4WD

1998 Blazer ZR2 5 Speed!

Looks solid - great rescue! Opening up that old fuel tank must have knocked you over with the smell. Nice to see the original window sticker. $11,443 in 2017 dollars is $23,805.

Tyler, I think you have a problem.

Re: I've lost count - 1988 GMC S-15 Base

nice find!

how did you use kerosene? I deal in sludgey motors all the time and the way I heard to do it was to pull the plugs and fill the engine completely up with kerosene, like cylinders and crankcase and heads just full, and let it sit, then drain, refill with oil, crank over a couple times to empty cylinders, reinstall plugs and run.

Dumped it down the spark plug holes and rolled it back in gear.

Then attempted to start it lol. It was flooding it self the entire time so the insides are probably like brand new with all the gas it used to clean and lubricate. LOL

Basically the ECM was commanding the injector to be fully open the entire time. After doing alot of wire load testing, I'm like alright it's gotta be the ECM. It was. Put that in and it started right up.

Its been sitting for 16 years because of a $50 ecm. lol.

But OMG electronics are scary.

Hopefully drive it one day. Lol

I need to throw the front suspension on it and get it out of the garage. Lol

Once Iím done with it all it should be 4/5 on 15Ē GMC rally wheels.

Few more updates.

The list of things I've done to this truck so far is endless and I'm still not 100% there with the way it runs. Seems to run perfectly with the O2 sensor unplugged, but just OK with it plugged in. I may just wait until its drivable to with it more.

Little dookie looks nice. I can't wait to detail the engine bay.



Found a few minty junk yard items.





Bit of a tease.

Re: I've lost count - 1988 GMC S-15 Base

This thing is angering.

It suddenly started running like crap again. Received a Code 53 which means the PCM is sensing voltage under 10v or over 17. Neither of which is happening.

Getting the replacement PCM warrantied, hopefully that resolves the issue and I got a dud PCM.

Some pics and a video.

Well, it's running. It's driving. And it's slammed.

Drove it some, put a full tank of gas in it for the first time in 16 years. lol.

I need to order the JTR extended cab driveline correction kit, 3" blocks and notch the frame.

I might order 2" blocks...half in might be all it needs. Right now it's approximately 5/6. DJM Springs, Belltech Street Performance shocks and it really rides and handles GREAT.

That's definitely a great eBay score.

I have that JTR extended cab driveline kit. Just pulled it out the other day to snap pictures and list for sale if you're interested.

Thanks man!

Here's some recent pictures of it. Put about 250 miles on it and have only used half a tank. LOL.

Got a new valve cover and the FelPro metal core gasket since mine is leaking already.

Re: I've lost count - 1988 GMC S-15 Base

Yea itís crazy how big trucks have gotten! The new Coloradoís are as big as my dads old 2000 Silverado 1500.

I just bought a 2500 hd and I need a friggin ladder to get in it, unfortunately it is too tall making it difficult to actually work out of the bed. All the manufacturers are making them this big

Exactly!

So, I ripped the interior out and redid it. Headliner turned out great.

Took it on a 1 hour interstate trip and didn't have any issues.

It's really good.

Got some new tires, cleaned up the wheels, and removed the sticky pad around the bed from the cap

Picked up a transmission for this. It's out of a newer truck, so it's not mechanical speedo, but I should be able to get it to work with a tailshaft swap.

Also, made a harness to run a cheap BT HU in the glove box while retaining the stock EQ HU in the dash.

Re: I've lost count - 1988 GMC S-15 Base

Tyto -
From what I have understood, the speedo issue is not just a simple tail shaft swap.
From what I've seen, the mechanical speedo connection is in a different location on the tail shaft. The mods I have seen included welding the e pickup hole shut and relocating the hole for the cable drive forward. You then need to locate the bevel gear in the right spot on the output shaft.

I have that clean 82 long bed with a 5 speed e speedo tranny. Someone swapped the fiver for a 4 speed that was in it.
I looked into it, it's close to 300 pesos to correct the issue (tail mod).
I'm probably going to buy a GPS speedo generator and connect the cable speedo to it.
No worries about gear or transmission ratios.
It's about $150 IIRC.

Truck is looking bonkers. The fade is way cool.
Cleaned and dropped really well.

Wait... isn't an 88 electronic speedo?

It's a mechanical speedo, which is weird because it seems like some trucks were electric at this point.

That Speedhut speedo converter is SWEET, and I should be able to reuse that signal for a Rostra cruise setup later on. Thank you!!

You can really screw with single stage and still end up with a nice end product.

Base/clear, it's much harder. I would just do a compound from aggressive to polish.

So I lowered the back another inch, and then rebuilt the doors.

New window runs, clips, sound deadening, and new sweeps.

Shuts like a bank vault now.
