Right on! Keep me in mind if you need some help, or another set of hands. I'd love to learn. Are you down for a gas tank pulling party one day? I'll cook!
Well right now we are just doing smaller things on hers i still got to pull the cradle from mine still and do some welding on it as well. Just mainly got to get more funds to really dig into them the way i want. But if we get a free weekend i know i would enjoy meeting up and lending a hand. Its just hard to get a free weekend when i spend most of my weeks up in new york and have two kids at home. But i might be able to pull something off.
And got a question about this swap. I know everything is plug and play other then the starter but will i have to have my computer reflashed since i want to go 3.1 with cam and roller rockers and maybe dawg mod along with opening the excaust. I know its not going to be 100 percent since it wont be tuned but will it still run decent on stock program
Well got a little bit done this past weekend on mine. Managed to get the upper intake and the electrical undone just need to finish draining the coolant and oil and then get under it to undo cradle bolts. Then it should be ready to come out.
No sorry started to run a little low on funds but now that we r getting taxes back im looking at parts as of right now. Im going to finish stripping the blocks down this week to try to get them off to the machine shop to get bored and honed 30 over and also get the rotating assembly balanced once i order a small scale to do the pistons and connecting rods myself. Is there anyone that has a good 87 flywheel for sale or know where i can get a new one for hers
Well have been ordering parts like crazy the last few weeks. So far for hers i have ordered- new piston and rings .30 over,cam,bearing,head bolts,comp cam push rods,gaskets set oil pump,timing set, freeze plugs, clutch kit. And i still got to order her new valve springs and valves. Mine i have order the same but for a 3.1 without the stock cam since im going to a 260 cam plus ive also ordered myself stainless valves fierostore performance valve springs and keepers, clutch kit moley rings. Ive also polished the heads a little bit on mine. Will be doing the manifold and y pipe a little later. Ive also ordered us new clutch pedals since i know the originals have a habbit of bending.
Well here is the update. I got her motor back from machine shop and together and about ready to go in. Just got mine out last night. Had to cut the front cradle bolts. The 3.1 block i had i found a major crack in it. Luckly i still have the 2.8 block and the 3.1 crank. I need to find a new cradle for mine now since mine is rusted out around the a arms. Ill try to get pictures later
