Well its warm out again so im finally motivated to work on this thing again!!
Picked up a 351 short block today .030 over forged alum. pistons, AFR 185cc alum. heads, ARP head bolts and some push rods, and intake.
Gonna tear the short block down tmrw hopefully and check everything over and then reassemble if everything checks out okay.
Gonna order up some more motor parts this week for it also.
Ill try and get some pics tmrw,
Im also going to be picking up a set of stock chevy 63's for the back since i want the truck lower and a good set of shocks in the back bilisteins maybe not sure yet.

I'm anxious to get it done and see how the truck does, the 5.0 isn't running to good anymore so I had to do something and this deal kinda fell into my lap. I'll keep updating!!
Few pics to,
Pulled the oil pan off to find all ARP bolts and studs in the bottom end and fully balanced also!! The cam ended up being a E303 also. I've gotta take it to have it honed as it has very light surface rust on the cyl bore from sitting but that's not to big of a deal.

Got as far as I could go on the motor, need to get a push rod length checker and get shorter pushrods, also might need longer studs for the rockers.
Few pics.

Motors just about done just need a few more things. Ordered some valve covers and bushings to make motor mounts.
Few pics.




Useless crap from wiring harness, hope I didn't strip anything I still need!!

Well got a good bit of work done this weekend, did a bunch of random crap Saturday and cleaned the shop up. Sunday I mounted up my Saginaw PS pump and then got my motor mounts all built and welded up.

For your ps pump http://westtexasoffroad.homestead.co...rsteering.html

I did it to mine and there's a small difference. Not much but every little bit helps and its free.
