if you only have 1500 into it so far, what you are sinking into it now aint bad. it's a clean rig and worth doing it.

No progress. I'm waiting on the guy rebuilding my trans then it's saving for the SS SYE kit then save for the lift.

Here is the latest gathering of parts. A new converter, kickdown cable with bracket, adapter kit to go from the turbo 350 to the S-10 231 and a shiny dipstick and tube for the trans.




The 231.



The speedo issue is solved, for the time being anyway. I forgot about the GPS I got from my brother a couple years ago. Tested it out and it'll work fine.


Hopefully spring this will see the road........

Picked up my trans up today. Actually I picked it up twice..........

We loaded it and he closed the tailgate. I didn't check if it latched. This comes into play later. I drive 25 miles to my shop to unload it but as I backed to the door I noticed I could see the garage door. Odd, the trans is not there and the tailgate is down. SHIT! I boogie down the separated 4 lane that is getting redone to find it. It's right where I figured it would be. Didn't even get hit by anything but the road. Get it back in the truck and head to the shop to access the damage. The new output shaft got a ding in the splines and the trans pan got killed. I pull the pan to hammer out the dents and find a tear in it. Scrap.

I wanted a aluminum pan with a drain plug anyway.

Cliffs; get new trans, dumbass forgets to check the tailgate and ends up picking said trans off the highway with a wasted pan.

Cool starry bra.

Well that was almost not a happy ending!
I wish I had some foresight on the trans issues you're had. I sent a s-10 blazer to the scrap yard with a 10k fresh rebuild with the 60 degree 700r4 a few years back.

Got my new B&M pan a couple weeks ago. Stock depth. I had a thought about gluing some kind of cheap lift together with parts I already have or need to get. Need to rework shocks and mounts so they still work with the screwing around but then I ran some numbers and figured out that I would be ahead just getting the lift I'm after instead of butchering something together to get me by. I will still need a SYE regardless of what happens. I still need to stare at the front a while to see if I can play with bumpstops so the upper arms won't crash into the exhaust.

So it still sits, waiting on money.

Cliffs: Random thoughts/brain dump.

Figured out a way to gain some clearance for the drivers downpipe. It will get friendly with the upper control arm. I have a new pair of BDS upper arms, stock length and will gain me the extra couple inches needed so things won't crash because of the tube design and how it attaches to the diff. I won't need to lift it then. Save some coin there.

Hopefully huge progress the first week of April. The boss is going south for the week so I get to snag the hoist again.

My plans are:
Swap the transmission.
Put the SYE kit in my spare 231 and install it.
Change the upper control arms to give me better exhaust clearance.
See if the front driveshaft I picked up will fit in the rear and if not, run it to the driveshaft shop down the road.
Wire the new speed sensor and run the harness. Speedo will be determined later. I'm debating on aftermarket and a mech conversion. The end pricing will be close.

I'll bring the camera and will hopefully have good things to show but if there is no good things, I'll fake it.

There are a few things I'm forgetting. If the shaft is good, I can drive it and see what else is screwed.
