On the tank Make sure you get a tank from a 87-91. It has baffles in it that the carb tanks don't have and it keep the fuel around the pump better.

you could try getting a gas tank from a newer 2 door tahoe or blazer. i just did a fuel pump on my buddies '97 fuel psi is 55-62. that way you could just use the stock tank/pumd and wouldn't have to fab anything

went to the JY this afternoon and picked up the fuel pump from the truck I got the motor out of. also got a 91 suburban tank and sendingunit and pump. I've got some things I am going to try with the combo. Only $50 for all 3 of them. We'll see what I can do.

Got my wiring harness back from Jim's Performance.


All laid out on the floor


He ended up having to do a lot of work to it. He removed nearly half the wiring from the harness.


Jim had to completely remove the Allison TCM and all the wiring. Then had to re-pin the plug for the ECM to accept the 4l80E. He labels EVERY plug so you know exactly where it goes. Even the ground wire are labeled "ground"


He even had me send him my pedal and TAC module to make sure it was working correctly with the ECM


He is very thorough and was in contact with me the entire time on what was going on, on almost a daily basis. Very good guy to deal with.

Now hopefully I can get this thing fired up soon.

So I am finally sick and tired of this damn truck just sitting in my driveway or garage. So I decided to get my ass busy on it again. We pulled the bed off the other night so I can get the fuel tank mounted. I'm waiting on the new tank straps to show up friday. I need to move around some crossmembers in the mean time though. Also ordered seat brackets from Brent @ Trail Works. Awsome guy to deal with. I will try and get some pics taken as I get some progress made.

Here is something to look at in the mean time:grinpimp:

Maybe a recap and some current pics would ease our dissappointment for the last few months, slacker:flipoff2:
