Keep at it. Progress is progress, even in small bites.

Building a small, high rpm engine
with the perfect bore, stroke and rod ratio is very impressive...
like a highly skilled Morrocan sword fighter with a Damascus Steel Scimitar.

Cubic inches is like Indiana Jones with a cheap pistol....

Re: Project: 1970 yet-to-be-named

Thew in the towel on the lines and picked up a Mastercool flare kit and some AN tube nuts. Wow this thing is awesome. Did a few test flares and had everything done a couple hours later. Can't believe I wasted so much time before I got this tool I should have bought it a long time ago. I used a factory GM fuel filter and reflared some 'fixit' lines to AN to connect to my Walbro pump. Worked great.

Apparently Ace Ventura did the delivery or someone at Mastercool was in a rush packaging it..

Next step, HPTuners!

Re: Project: 1970 yet-to-be-named

Went to put plug wires on and 3 on the driver side hit the speed engineering headers. One thing I found from the 01/02 4.8, 5.3 and 6.0 engines that are all at my shop is that the plug wires are not the same length. I don't even know which ones I am using, I think the 01 5.3 wires - but they are about 1 to 1.5 inches longer than the other 2 engines. Either way they don't clear the headers, may have to get some Accell 45degree ceramic units. Or just put factory exhaust manifolds back in to keep costs down.

Poor picture but you can see the culprits here

Re: Project: 1970 yet-to-be-named

Everyone who has ever swapped a motor knows how this feels! Now I just have to tie up the 8675309 loose ends and time for a drive!

Oh and build the exhaust..

Re: Project: 1970 yet-to-be-named

accelerator cable... 70's honda civic TB side + '71 c10 firewall side + mountain bike inner cable + hardware store crimp = success! Also apparently in Canada nobody has ever heard of a knarp. Hope I don't have to adjust it! Switched the pedal to 71/72 cable type.

Re: Project: 1970 yet-to-be-named

Someone was asking about plug wires on the speed engineering shorty headers. I ended up with Taylor TAY-76046 from summit, they fit well.

Re: Project: 1970 yet-to-be-named

Had just decided that an Ididit tilt wasn't happening at this time, gotta keep the costs down, and then happened across a van tilt locally for a great price. Has been sitting in the guys basement for 15-20 years. He thought it was from a 73. Needs some cleanup but feels pretty tight. Anyone know if parts such as pointer/indicator and indicator lens are interchangeable with the truck tilts? Would like to get lens to match up with the 4L60e

Re: Project: 1970 yet-to-be-named

Another local find. I already bought most of the sensors to get my stock gauges to work with the LQ4 but this will be a heck of a lot simpler and look better to boot!

Re: Project: SRS BSNS

Well spring is finally here so got the truck out of storage a couple days ago. What better way to start the year by breaking the post ls-swap best of 50 mile trip with a 200mile tow road trip. Serious Business! With the lq4 and bags it pulled amazing. Drivetrain-wise it's head and shoulders better than my 07 f150 was. Just could use more weight and I may have to get some power brakes on it lol. Also note to self, get that brake controller working!!

Re: Project: SRS BSNS

Awesome truck! I have the same wheels on mine with flipped center rears. What backspace are you running and how do the wheels fit when aired out? I went with 4" backspace and still have about 1" clearance between the tire and fender. I want to swap out to the wider 70-up rear to get my wheels pushed out a bit more but I'm worried that will be getting too close to the fenders. I already removed the inner well and flattened the lip some, so that helps.
