Awesome! Are you planning a build thread? Any details on the plans? Will it sit high, low... somewhere in the middle?

Re: S10 Swap how to

Call me brother. We'll figure it out. Run on can be caused by several issues. Too many questions to diagnose on thread.

Re: S10 Swap how to

Since your kinda of the topic of wiring, just wanted to know what wiring kits you suggest for these swaps? Does it make much difference what engine you run? Exc. LS, stock S10 or 350.

Re: S10 Swap how to

I use ez wiring 12 or 21 circuit harnesses depending on how many power accessories the build will have. Basic carb'd 350 gets a 12 circuit, start adding power seats, windows, door poppers, locks, etc y hen it needs a 21 circuit harness.

Re: S10 Swap how to

Evening guys and skymangs! New guy here, been doing soooo much reading and checking out everybodies trucks.. love this site!!! First post on the forum and here is where its going to be!
Ive read every one of these posts 15 times over before I went digging in .. im a measure twice cut once guy... anyways. Im working on a 1951 AD short bed, have it finally sitting on an 89 S10 long bed chassis,, ive put a whole new front end in, quick ratio steering box, 4x4 (top of the line 04ish Envoy) rear diff with sway bar, disk and 3:73 gears(rare im told)

anyways I made your version 1 mounts and have tacked the fronts 2 1/8th" forward of the oval frame hole just behind the flare of the frame , I have the back end resting on a floor jack just to double check where the rears mounts need to go.. and where I need to be is 8 1/8th from the rear of the 5/8 hole.. which is fine.. but something isn't looking right to me. I have the drivers fender someone dangling there just to get a visual.. I don't seem to be centered in the wheel well , its like the cab needs to move forward some... ut I just wanted to ask if this is looking right to you.. I have uploaded a few pics.. your help and knowledge has and is greatly appreciated!!!

Re: S10 Swap how to

I ended up putting my mounts 3.1/8" fwd to center my wheels. It looked ok with 15" wheels at 2.1/8 but when I put 20" wheels on it looked off so I moved the mounts 1" forward. After putting the fenders/grill on I ended up cutting the front frame horns right where they should be (at the PS).

I just put the 20"s back on and you can see a pic on my build thread. Happy with the sheet metal now. Now on to lowering it and getting the driveline connected.

Hope this helps.

Re: S10 Swap how to

I've been trying to find headers for my build. My motor is a 350 out of a 93 1500. I've looked at the Patriot and some others and they all seem to say they do NOT work with angled heads/plugs.

Are there another option other than switching out the heads?

Re: S10 Swap how to

4orty6, keep in mind that as you add weight, the upper control arms articulate slightly (I believe to the rear, but I forget ). Make sure you have accounted for that movement before final burn in.

Re: S10 Swap how to

Also, bolt the grill in. It spreads the front of the fenders some, and changes how the wheel looks in the fender.

I'm not sure why your rear measurement is 8 1/8th. From the rear edge of that 5/8 hole, 10.5" should mark the forward edge of your cab stand. That measurement should allow you to use one of the exsisting body mount holes to bolt your cab to the stand.

Bowtie; not sure on angled plugs. The early 90's 5.7s I've seen have all been straight plugs.

Re: S10 Swap how to

Here's a tidbit that should help you LS guys.
So the radiator hose part numbers are as follows:

Upper rad hose
22248
or
22227

Lower:
21045
Lower will require a straight water neck. See below.

Straight water neck Part number 2671 from Mr. Gasket on Ebay.

Re: S10 Swap how to

Yeah, those are for LS, with the radiator upper radiatropening on the passenger side. For a small block I just use an upper hose for a 75 chevy pickup. I have numbers for good lower hoses in the shop. I'll try to post it up tomorrow.

Re: S10 Swap how to

[quote=Strodder;7148463]I've been following this thread, and not sure if someone addressed the issue of mounting the front bumper. Here's what I did. I made a bracket from 1X2 tubing and slipped it into the frame and clamped it. I forgot to take a picture of what it looked like. Sorry. Then welded a nut in the inside part of the bumper brackets so a bolt can be bolted through the bracket and frame. Then I had to modify the bumper brackets so the bumper would be centered. After I had everything centered I did the final welding and boxed in the front frame around the brackets I made that lets the bumper brackets slide in. I can undo 4 bolts and the whole bumper and brackets come right out. Here's the pictures I took. Hope you like the idea.





Nice clean mount for the bumper.

Not sure if you figured it out yet but your center link is on backwards. took me a bit to figure out why the inner tie rods looked off.
