Thanks. I've always been a sucker for detail. I don't like plain looking bolts, but didn't want to spend the money for ARP's(this time ). I used to always use hardware store stainless bolts with the heads sanded down and polished, but it was gonna cost a fortune to replenish all these metric bolts in stainless. Plus, the stock bolts actually look kinda nice with some color.

I got the dampener and power steering pulley installed today. I just need to torque the flexplate, finish up the steam lines, cut the wires and install the LT1 plug boots and she's ready to install!!

Re: Project: LS1ick68

IT'S IN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!




I still have some work to do. I have to do some wiring, figure out where to mount the MSD ignition controller, have the headers coated, then get the exhaust connected, driveshaft shotened, belts, hoses, fluids, yada, yada, yada. Hope to have it running by this weekend!

Re: Project: LS1ick68

Nothing major happening lately, but I did get a little bit done yesterday evening. I removed the wires from the weatherpack connector on the MSD wiring harness and fed them through the existing hole in the firewall then reattached them inside the cab. I'll find a place inside the cab to mount the MSD controller later. I'll mainly work out the ball of spaghetti in the engine bay first.

I torqued down the trans crossmember and trans mount, then measured the length to have my driveshaft cut down.

Lastly, I finally got around to changing out the old CPP 1" front drop springs for the new ECE 2" drop springs. Sorry, no pics yet, but, wow, 1" of drop makes a big difference!! (Yes, the 1" drop springs will be up for sale.)

I'll try to finish cleaning up the wiring, install the MSD box, reinstall the intake, and finish up some other odds and ends this weekend, then try to take the driveshaft to get cut and take the headers to get coated next week.

Re: Project: LS1ick68

Got the hood back on Saturday.



No pics of it yet, but I finally got my insulated wire loom for the starter wires. I also finally got some more parts sold, so I'm going to take the driveshaft to be shortened, the headers to get coated, and probably go ahead and get the exhaust hooked back up before dropping the headers off, so I can route the trans cooling lines while I'm waiting on the headers. I ordered Lokar column shifter linkage, Lokar engine dipstick, and a Lokar TV cable from Summit Racing. They should be here within the next few days.
