Re: Rottenwood Garages C50 Hauler project about to begin!

I knew you'd get back into another medium duty. I am sure you have it all envisioned and planned out. But, mind if I show a picture for inspiration? This guy has a body shop in Edinburg, VA. Truck was tight!

Re: Rottenwood Garages C50 Hauler project about to begin!

Engine finished, mated to trans and it along with the fuel system dropped in place. FYI, 4L80 sits in the same spot as a Turbo 400. No x-member relocation necessary but drive shaft will need to be lengthened and of course yoke changed. Now time to fab up the exhaust.

Re: Rottenwood Garages C50 Hauler project about to begin!

This weekend I welded up the front 7' of exhaust to include O2 sensor bungs, and hangars. Also ran all the fuel lines, oil filter housing and cooler lines along with installing the starter. Next set will be hooking up the fuel tank and final mounting of it. We are shooting for dropping the cab by mid October.

Re: Rottenwood Garages C50 Hauler project about to begin!

I'd say you're moving along nicely on this. I guess trans is longer (know that) but mount's in same place?

OK folks, we can all breath a sigh of relief!! THE TRANSMISSION IS "IN CORRECT" and nothing "custom" had to be done!!

We have also confirmed that in fact, a 400 is longer than 4L80 by several inches as was quite apparent by the need to lengthen the driveshaft. HOWEVER, the transmission mounting point on both is within 1/2 inch of one another.

I'm glad we are past this bump in the road!!
