The big block is heavier, plus I have a full serpentine up front. Maybe I had more gas.

Re: What did you do WITH your truck today?

I drove down to Santa Cruz to pick up this 327. Supposed to be a rebuild of about 30.000 miles ago. It is clean under the valve covers and the spark plugs were clean and brown. Don't know why the first engine pic is Green. Kind of weird. Also dose anyone one know what kind of car this bell housing belongs too. I have never seen one on the right side.

Re: What did you do WITH your truck today?

Drove mine to work the last few days since the daily is down, 90 mile round trip. Still allot of work to do but it's driving really good since the upgrades. I need to do a build thread on mine, I'm terrible about taking photos as I go.

Re: What did you do WITH your truck today?

Thanks, it only had about twenty miles of shake down miles before I hit the highway and hoped for the best. Crossmember swap with power disc brakes, add a tbi 5.7 and 4l60e that I cut the harness up and reworked. It's made 3 trips to work so far with no problems. Brakes and steering feel so good it's amazing and it goes 75 on a whiff of throttle in overdrive. I need to get my Speedo working this weekend. Going to try to put the 1995 guts behind the stock dash. We'll see how it goes.

Those are some crazy side view mirrors. Do you have a close up?

Re: What did you do WITH your truck today?

I took advantage of the holiday schedule to go visit family in NC. I've taken the truck to Daytona which is only an hour away, so this was the first multi-day road trip! Even though NC is a day drive, I planned a stop on the way up in Charleston SC. I enjoyed it enough to stop again on the way back. I had to get the tires rebalanced in NC, the radiator cap is leaking some I think and had to disconnect the speedo on the way back to Charleston, but otherwise it did great.

I have a concourse show this weekend so figured I better clean a little and finally painted my throttle spring the almost right color.
