    Just bought a 1989 chevrolet 2500 with 96,000. It was owned by a mechanic and has a 7'6" meyer. Got his accounts plus 15 I hustled myself from a mailing to my existing lawn customers. In total 30 residential and four very small lots. Any advice?? Would love to hear comments about the truck. Runs and drives great, New Radiator, door pins, front tires, interior/cosmetics need alittle help anyone know where I can get part such as a seat, door arm rest, dash fuse panel cover ETC. One more question anyone know of a chevy website like TDR or the diesel stop that I visit now?

    Where are you in NY? I have a link for a u-pick salvage yard near Binghampton with very good prices if you're interested.

    It should be a good truck.I also have an 89 3/4 ton Chevy.Mine is a 350 with a four spd. I have an 8' fisher on mine with a buyers spreader on the back. I wish the front ends on the chevys were a little more stout.I cranked my front suspension up about all I dare. Even with the timbrens,the 8' fisher is more than enough for the front end. It really has been a good truck though,with almost no repairs.As has been said,you should be able to find almost any part you need at your local salvage yard.Have a great season!
