I will! Figuring out the hydro setup will be the biggest hurdle, no part numbers or markings on the T/O bearing so I'm not sure if it's a McLeod, just my best guess as that's what it looks like. On the hunt for a 6.0L now but funds are tight with winter coming.

Maybe you could hunt a wrecked Caddys? The GTO's tend to command more bucks,at least in my area.

The cars tend to command much more money. I'm looking at trucks.

Trucks, or even better, vans. Van parts are easy to offload to people, too.

I'm sure I'll have plenty of customers if I part out a white van.

What you did there, I see it. Besides, he already had Ferd parts on there.

Things have changed, as they do. Still have the wagon, still stock. Finally pulled the replacement drivetrain from it's shipping crate. It's a 4.8L/4L80E from a 2003 junk van. What were you expecting something new? Going to clean it all up and prep it for the swap in early June. Engine is getting cam, valve springs, gen 4 truck intake, not much else. Trans will get a convertor and shift kit. Things are happening, finally!

No TKO Manual?


Good luck on the swap. These cars have plenty of room under the hood and the LS fits nicely in there.

yea no manual the TKO found it's way into my 86 C10 last year. It's pretty noisy so perfect for the truck.

Gonna be lazy and leave the car an auto, for now. bought the rusty van for $300 and the four cats on it are worth $75 each, so that helps.
