    Been MIA for a while, But i have started modifying the truck to become a rock crawler. The h190 rear axle is out, and i have replaced it with a toyota 8 inch (79-85 toyota pickup axle) with 5.29 gearing. It also has a locker in it. Also this past weekend i have chopped off my factory leaf springs and have replaced them with chevy 63" leaf springs (stock is 47.25"). Next i will be chopping off the IFS and attempting a 3 link solid axle swap.

    720 coldstart issue

    so everytime my truck cools down and i go to start it, for one i have to give it some gas while holding the key (not that big of a deal), but it also will revv up to like 2500 rpm and sit there until it is warm enough to where when i tap the throttle it comes back down to normal 900ish. If the truck isnt warm enough yet and i tap the throttle it just goes up and comes back down to like 2000. any ideas on the high revving and sitting there on cold starts?? Ps. i recently changed my ported vacuum switch because the other one broke. i though for sure that would be the fix, but no change.

    Turn signal problem.

    (Back story) So the passenger side running lights never worked, even with new bulbs(but driver side always worked). But when i turned my truck on this morning, i turned my lights on and lone behold both sides running lights worked (driver and passenger). I was all excited and such, but then i drove out of my driveway and go and use the turn signals (which have always worked), and nothing. No lighting on the dash or outside. Its like they traded somehow!? So where can i find a relay or fusible link or something for the turn signals?

    ported vacuum switch

    really appreciate the info on this, i just gotta find out where to get a 3 port, even rock auto shows 2 ports. The only 3 port i found on rock auto was for the 2.5 diesel, which im not sure if it will thread in.
