1980 Chevy Silverado Truck Left Sitting!!
I recently inherited from my mechnically lame father-in-law a 1980 Chevy Siverado 10 half ton pickup with a 305 G series engine. The fun part is that it has been sitting for 8 YEARS without running though it DID run when he left it to rot. Now, I either need to two it to a junk yard or get it running. What say ye gentlemen?
So far, I have cleaned it out (including the mice living in the air-filter housing and the two raccoon skulls under the hood). I have a new battery for it. I have new air filter, oil, oil filter, etc. I would like to not spend a fortunate on seeing if the thing will run, but I wouldn't mind the extra ranch vehicle. My next step is to pull the plugs and squirt some oil down the cylinders. Then there is my first question. Do I try to use the starter to turn it over? If not, how do I try and turn this over by hand?
Also, I know this is a stupid question for you guys who work on cars all the time, but how do I drain the old gas easily on this vehicle?
Thanks in advance.
