Thanks. It can be frustrating because I want to move faster, but a friend reminded me to "enjoy the journey."

I hadn't located a transmission to mock up my mounts and driveline. My buddy MShip let me borrow his newly acquired 6.0/4L60e. Hope to get some time this weekend to set it in.

Awesome project, it seems every time you linger on it though, something better comes around. Keep up the good work, I'm excited to see this thing come together.

Re: 71 C10 rebuild 2.0

I bet I am the ONLY one who reads through other builds and says "hey, I think I'll undo half of every thing I've done 'cause that looks ____ (cooler, faster, lighter, stronger...)"

Re: 71 C10 rebuild 2.0

Today I set the mockup 6.0/4L60e into the frame using the original big block towers and Dirty Dingo sliders. I haven't built or bought a tranny x-member yet, so it's sitting on the original. It doesn't feel right - I put 2" block under the back of the tranny and it still seems to be too much of an angle. Even with that block the back end is angled 4.5 deg

Thought the motor was sitting a little high, but maybe not that much.

I guess I'll go sit on the mower and think for awhile.

Re: 71 C10 rebuild 2.0

Mine is set up at 5 degrees down I think they do it like that so the Drive Line clears the center crossmember.

Re: 71 C10 rebuild 2.0

I ordered the ECE mounts for two reasons. I would like to leave the AC where it's at (low) and it looks like they may sit a little lower. Looking at the pics on their site I was pretty convinced the towers that were on the frame I bought were from ECE. But the ones I got are different. It doesn't bother me, here are the two side by side:

Here are the complete ECE setups.

Set the motor in, won't quite clear both the alternator and the AC. Probably trim the frame a bit.
