Motor ready to be ripped out. Front end halfway off, gutted the interior. Just have to get the door panels off. Lot of stuff needs to be sold. Roofliner is actually in great shape for a 15 year old truck.
decided to get her ready for the long trek over to cali next month. She's leaning to the left and it irritates me. so, i went ahead n bout some DJM 2" drop coils and shocks p/n 1315 for the front and 2400 for the rear. yesterday, changed out the tranny fluid which actualy went quite well. but the exhaust took a crap on me, so, i bought a cheap turbo thrush muffler, and have that 90% of the way installed. i need 1 clamp. i'll get her on in a few and post more pics under the truck.
Went to look for a crank and some 5.7 rods. ended up finding out the guy i went to talk to have some 062 Vortec heads laying around that he doesn't want to use because he went carb'd due to the spider injection. i'm going to have to take em off his hands soon.
found a machined block going for 200 on CL... turns out some one stole his rear main cap... he said the lowest he can go... would be 150.... so i HAD to take him up on it... he sent pics... the block was crazy clean. and he preserved it in oil... every two weeks, he'd clean it and rub it down again. only thing is... this one will probably only be a 350 since my 30 over pistons wont fit.. i don't want to force it! i need to mic the block.
