    The title shows a GVW of 1000 lbs. Wouldn't it have to weigh more than that? I know it's called a "half ton" but isn't that what it will tow or haul?

Can I interchange a 1980-1985,305 chevy engine with a 1991 305 chevy?


as it is the basic 305 block the differences may be fuel injection over carburettor which may require sensor attachments but basically the engine should just slot in place.

What is the maximum towing capacity for a 1987 chevy caprice brougham..? ( the 305 engine) Thanks!


With a 20 year old vehicle, the original towing capacity does not apply.
I'd set a limit of whatever the weight of your vehicle is as a safe number (if car weighs 3,200 lbs, tow weight is 3,200lbs Max.) Trailer weight is also determined by the capacity of the hitch.
Trailer loading should be at 60% of weight on hitch.
Don't forget...you need a fully functional cooling system, adequate (most times additional) transmission cooling, and good suspension (air shocks, variable load rear springs and fresh differential lube). If this is done, you may be able to add 20-30% more trailer weight.
One item often overlooked is that it really does not matter if you can pull a load...you need to be able to stop it. Make sure your brakes are in really good condition!!!

I have a 2001 chevy silverado pick-up, regular cab, with a tow/haul option. How much weight can I safely haul on the highway in the bed? GVWR is 6100 lb, 3686 lb on the rear, but what is the curb...


Here is a link to specs for that year model of truck, I would need more info such as auto/manual, and 4x4 or not. Anyway it's an easy chart to read. But technically speaking a 1/2 ton pickup is only rated to carry 1,000 lbs in the bed. I wouldn't personally suggest doing more than that, if you overload the bed you can have trouble steering and stopping. I hope this Helps please rate this thank you

Nitrous bottle weight


20 pounds is what it holds, what the bottle weighs depends on what it is made of. A steel bottle and an allumnium one will weigh completly different but still hold the same amount.

You can lift the bed off, but you'll have to disconnect tailights filler neck, etc anyway, ,so why wouldn't you drop the tank.
