moral of the story

it will run some day and be worth it in the end

It runs great right now. Just has a leak that needs to be addressed.

The motor wasn't in parts, other then the intake, but as for not mixing and matching.....totally agree.

Was supposed to go to R&V today and test her out, skipped it so I could make it to Collins benefit the 11th. Yep, first run will be the race. Hopefully all will go well. Already have plans to put a shift kit in right after this race.

Taking it over to have Erin fix the bumpstops and move my front shock mounts Thursday night. Try and get some up travel.

Valve cover gasket was broken off and had about a 3 inch gap with no gasket. All fixed, thank you Ryan!

Glad it was a cheap and easy one! I wonder why the valve covers had been removed in the first place.....I never even got around to removing them when i had it.

So Becky,
Aside from the steering box issues, are you happy with it? Does the trans seem to work right? No heat issues?

Very Happy with it. No heat issues, shifts nice, runs like a champ. I will still have Tom put a shift kit in. I remember you telling me the 4l80 would shift 1-2 on it's own, it does, that I don't care for. Tom said the shift kit would let me hold 1st. There's a couple hoses on the radiator that seem almost collapsed, I will be swapping those out for an upgrade as well. Oh, and I will be adding a gate between park and reverse.
