I bought this 1979 Chevy G30 van and I am unsure what kind of condition anything is in but everything looks pretty good for its age and I wanted to know what should be my first step from starting to build it up as in getting it to run. My first thing I was thinking was dropping fluids, pans, gas tank, replacing the fuel pump, and replacing seals/gaskets. If anyone has any better place I should start I would love to hear it. It was last driven in 2012, and starts with starting fluid I was told. Thanks!
