Here is a pic of the GTO mount. I also used a corvette oil pan because my car was real low and that pan gave me about two inches more clearence.

Those are the same mounts that I just ordered. Did you use the LS2 Corvette pan or the LS1 Corvette pan with the "batwings"?

Ls1 vette. It worked perfect for my car, almost like it was made for it. I ran a TH350 trans and got the adapter from summit which included a flywheel and spacer. Lokar dipstick to get rid of the ugly one and lots of little tricks here and there to make it look good. I also got the adapters from summit so my autometer gauges would work with the LS motor.

Got any pics from underneath? I was afraid the "batwings" would interfere with space for something (exhaust/brakes/steering) later. I measured, and it'll fit within the frame fine. They are MUCH cheaper than the LS1 F-body pans and 1/4" shallower too. With my car being so low, I really don't want anything hanging any lower than it has to.

Thanks for the pics. I can't see the "wings" on that pan; you sure it's a C5 Corvette LS1 pan? It would look like this:

Thanks! Your pics helped a lot! Good lookin' car! My exhaust will take up more room than yours but I think it'll work.

Yes. Looks great. My compliments Tubbed! How are you liking the carb set up?

My 36 is sitting on the sidelines so I can get my son's 65 Elky going. I just started ordering parts again yesterday for the 36. I still need the LS2 water pump. But I do have the modified fuel injection wiring harness back. Going to get started mocking up the headers soon. Then hopefully I can at least get it started......then pull for a good cleaning and paint the frame.

How's your progress going Sinister?

Dave

FWIW the May, 2009 Car Craft has an article on the "Complete Chevy LS accessory drive and pulley swap guide".

It's 6 pages and includes OEM part numbers- it isn't just an advert for March pulleys, it goes into how to do things using OEM/junk yard-sourced parts.

IMO, just the info on alternator interchange and power steering pump pulleys would be worth the price.

The carb setup was easy and runs great. I bought the motor out of a wrecked GTO and they cut the wiring harness and lost the cpu so instead of buying all that stuff I just spent 650 bucks and bought the carb kit.

I`m of no help either but I do have to say thats a awesome truck Iceman. It looks like a old ice delivery truck or is that where your name came from? If not it sure does fit. It would be cool after painting and restoration to have a false ice company`s name and logo painted on the side. Something like "Artic Andy`s Ice Delivery" or "Eskimo Ed`s" Just random thoughts.
