06-28-2015 01:21 PM fitment issues
As one would expect, when transplanting an LS1 engine into a 1977 Corvette, there have been a few fitment issues. I installed energy suspension motor mounts, which also required an adapter plate, but the motor mounts and the frame mounts where not even close. I jacked up the engine and removed the plates that Energy suspension said are required, sorry Energy suspension but there was no other choice, and still had to drill the motor mounts to get the bolts installed. Here are some pictures along with the other fitment issue of the shifter bracket that I made yesterday.

06-27-2015 11:59 PM Shifter linkage from th350 to 4l60e
The shifter lever from the turbo 350 fit right onto the 4l60e transmission, but the mounting bracket was a different story. The bolt holes didn't line up with the new transmission. The fix was to make a plate and drill holes that lined up with the new tranny and weld the old bracket on to this plate. The pictures where taken with a cell phone so the quality is poor. I will take a picture tomorrow of the mounted bracket....good quality if I can remember my camera.

06-25-2015 10:03 PM Engine and Transmission
Installed the engine/tranny at the semi-public and had a few problems with the cherry picker. Nothing to great, just a problem with the chains turning the engine at an angle and no swivel. I had to put the engine back on the engine stand twice before I got a swivel setup that would work well enough to install the engine. The transmission was not a problem at all with the transmission jack they have there. With all the problems I had with the engine, I am glad I separated the engine and transmission.

06-21-2015 05:06 PM no more Vintage Air for me
The Tech from Vintage Air contacted me after I sent an email about hard wiring the Dash lights into the Vintage Air control. He said there was a funeral and then he just forgot to send me a return authorization. I have to assume he is the only tech currently employed at Vintage Air. I had planned on installing a VA system into my pickup...but not anymore. I always hate to deal with a business that seems annoyed when you have contacted them and interrupted their coffee break. The lights are hardwired and I am really sorry that I bothered Vintage Air.

It has been three days since I have heard from VA....the last contact was telling me how to remove the ECU. I then asked about sending an ECU and have heard nothing since.
