Thanks. Looks good from a distance. Last mounds trip played it toll on the body. Put about 6 good dents in the bed and back half of the cab. Huge strachs were the dents are. Both fenders are smached in on the bottom from jumping it and the tires hitting it. Paint lasted about 3 months before all that. Not to be a downer just telling it like it is.

Finely started putting the 350 in.
Got the old motor, trans, case, and almost every thing out in about 2 days. Engine bay preped and painted the next day. And started mocking the motor in by the 4th day. Lots of hours.
Very tight fit. Ended up making my own mounts and not using the ones i bought. Over all im going to have about 1/4in to 3/8in clearlance between the raditor and water pump.
Had to bet dents in the headers to clear my spark plugs and wires. But they clear the frame and motor mounts with no problems. Just have to make the rest of the exhaust.
Couldnt use my nice AN fittings on my fuel pump because it would hit the frame. Had to get a regular fitting from the local parts store.
Hood just clears the air filter. Didnt at first but i redid the mounts, after all that it clears. Also didnt clear the raditor before redoing the mounts.
Turning out real nice. Pain in the butt, but its turning out real nice.
Still have to go have the output shaft in my trans. Also have to finsh welding the motor mounts in. Then put the trans and case in. Getting close to finshing.

Yea me to. Its not my fault. I could have had it done but every one i was going with has had somthing happen. Thats means no one will trailer my truck up. Going make sure every thing is done and broke in the right way now, instead of huring. So now im not as worried about getting it done so fast. Hench being in here on the computer instead of out working on it.

Thanks. Its almost ready to start up. I just need to put oil in it and then prime the whole motor for oil. Then i have to set the roller rockers, and get the disturbutor set up right. And a few more little things.
Dont know if i have the right flex plate though cuz when i have the starter on it looks like it wont even reach the flex plate to turn the motor over. I dont know, see what happens.
Getting close though to starting it up.

Very tight fit. Got it finally mounted were i want it. To change the front belt on the motor i have to pull out the raditor to change it. To change my plugs and wires i have to take the headers off. To take the driver side header off i have to unbolt the motor mount and lift up the motor to get the header out.
And it does not fit under the hood. The spin nob that holds the filter on hits the hood support.
Alot of little stupid things like that but its going to be sweet. Cant wait to drive it.

Going to try and build them first. Longfeilds and shafts in the front. Disk brakes, chromly shafts, hardened ring and pinion out back. Fully trussing them both.
Longfeilds are just as strong as a 35 spline d60. Try that set up and see what happens.
If i end up building the motor more later ill probley have to go bigger but they should hold up after building them.

Found out that i dont have to pull the motor to do the header, plugs and wires. Have to set the header in first then put the plugs in and then the wires on, then bolt the header on. Lots of fun.

Also finaly got the adapter to bolt to the transfercase. Got the shifter forks cut down enough to clear the plate.

Thanks

Thats my guess on weight to. That comes out to about 1hp to about every 9 pounds. Thats only about 2 or 3 pounds per hp then the new corvettes and ford gt's. Going to be alot of fun to drive.

Went and dropped my trans off today to have the output shaft put in. Also got all the stuff i just ordered from summit.
Bigger sfi flex plate- other one was to small
4ft 3in exhaust
3in U bend
2x 2 1/2in U bends
3in inlet, dual 2 1/2 outlet 40's flowmaster + free t-shirt
Push button for starter

Got my oil pressure and water temp gauges mounted and wired. Mounted the shifter. Filled the power steering fluid, started filling the anti freeze but ran out. Drained the gas tank(cheap out, 94 going in). Sucks draining a full tank with out enough gas cans, started using milk jugs. Swapped flex plates. Hooked strobes back up. Put grill on. Bolted axle in. Ran trans cooler lines. Mounted fan and controler. Few more little things.

Going to go pick up the trans before work tomorrow. Put it in when i get home from work.
