Looks good JFG. How big of a job is that swap.
Dad gave me his low mile 76 Chev truck with a 6 banger.

Like your quote Tripper. "I made it work!" I need some of that.

It's actually one of the easiest swaps going. 1" set back motor mount plates and it drops into the stock sbc location and mounts. The Silverado mechanical fan sits right in the 85 shroud like it's supposed to be there. Stock truck manifolds will work too with a slight frame trimming near the flange. Or use the Speed Engineering stainless swap headers like I did for $284.

Just remember orange wires are 12+ all the time and the pink wires are key'ed power. Black or black with a white stripe is ground, purple is starter, tan is oil sender signal, and 2 or 3 extraneous wires for DLC, tach (white) and fuel pump relay control (green). Boom! you're off and running!


Just saw this in LS section ....I would still need help

It's been tough working in this Tejas heat but I started working on the patch panels I made for the lower part of my body over the weekend! Supposed to rain & be cool the rest of this week so I plan on getting in a lot of shop time... fingers crossed!
