Reply to JONATHAN's Post: do you know where i could get a manual that shows me where all these parts go or pictures thanks
Expert:  JONATHAN replied 7 years ago.
i would buy the factory service manual from Helm....its a little pricey ($75.00) but the most complete source of repair info about the truck

http://www.helminc.com/helm/product2.asp?class%5F2=CHV&mk=Chevrolet+%26+Geo&yr=1979&md=Light%2DDuty+Trucks+%28Up+To+1986%29&dt=Shop%2FService+Information&module=&from=result&Style=&Sku=ST33079K&itemtype=K&mscsid=AB5E26PEJLRB9N7VNU45UQ8BV270DNF0

the autozone online repair manual gives you basic pictures but i don't know if it will be specific enough
