Thanks. Got all the injection parts, headers, collectors and the starter all loaded up. Anybody need a good 727/Dana 20?

Fuck that was a good time reading all of that. I had forgot what a cluster "certain" PBB IH dudes can be. No sense of humor at all.

So glad that this truck was purchased for a price that is more realistic. It sounds like you got it for what it was actually worth too.

Did you respray it or was it resprayed when you picked it up...? It looks really nice now. And as far as the transplant goes...that will be one nice running truck when you are done with it.

Bravo.

Thanks man. It was already painted. I know it really isn't pirate worthy but I might need some hand-holding with the ls swap.

Fedex dropped of my new radiator today. It's a Champion radiator that I bought off eBay for $200 with free shipping. It's 3 row, fully welded aluminum for a '66-'67 chevelle. It has dual mounting flanges. If I cut the front flanges off it will damn near be a direct bolt in.

Cory, if your swap is anything like mine, you will need to pull a leaf or it will be nose high. Those darn LS power plants are way light and you are pulling a ton of weight off of your front axle. Leona's Scout is now heavier on the rear axle than the front axle.

It already rode like shit with the 345 in it. It's a good excuse to put coils in the front.

Your headers showed up today too. Looks like they will give me plenty of room. Thanks again.

Is the SII frame that much different than the 800 frame? My pickup manifolds fit between the frame with room to spare. Looks like you are gonna be done with your swap way before me

Scout II frames are quite a bit narrower.

How did you position it in the frame? Crank centerline at about the same plane? Move it back at all? Can you take a pic of how far down the oil pan is hanging?

Looks pretty good so far look like headers fit great.


Mines actually lower than that. As I was going to use the mech fan, but decided to lower the motor making the fan uses less and ended up with efans.
I didn't push mine to far back to save drive shaft length in the rear. Its already lighter up front so pushing it back its gain alot and the angle was better for the rear shaft.
Also the truck pan clears great but I am SOA.

I couldn't really go much further back because the heads would have been up to the firewall. If I would have gone forward much more the mechanical fan would be too close to the radiator. I centered the crank between the frame rails and I mounted it as high as possible and still have the plastic engine cover fit under the hood because I'm concerned about clearance between the front diff and the right header collector and oil pan. I think I'm going to add some bumpstops for peace of mind. I'll take some more pictures in a while. I'll be using an 80's K5 transmission crossmember to install this morning.

This one shows the engine cover just peeks over the tops of the fenders. I could go about an inch higher without the cover.

Thanks Robert. Mine won't be as pretty as yours but hopefully works as well. Those ls1 intakes sure give you more room than these truck intakes.

Is this what you're looking for Chi? It's at 5 degrees which is a tad much but will help with u-joint angles a bit.


Chevy crossmember.

Why do you think 5 degrees of rake on the engine is a tad much? Just curious.

Mine is in at 7 degrees to fit.

My engine dimensions will be the same as yours. Roberts is several inches shorter with the car intake and his pan is a couple of inches shallower. I didn't think I had anything to worry about with the intake but after looking at your pics I can tell that it can be possible to set the engine too high and have hood problems. It looks to me like the truck pan is hanging down pretty far even with the intake near the hood. Im thinking Im going to need to start saving up for the $400 aftermarket aluminum pan.

Im also looking into OBA. There are pics of a York on a 5.3, based on your pics I think it may be too tall to fit under the hood

Those pics were most helpful. I really like what you did with the headers

I think 3 degrees is pretty standard.
