Re: 1969 Burb build-up (Bags, 5.3/4L60E, repaint, interior....)

Sanderson's making custom headers for GenIII swaps? I had ECE's Sanderson shorties on my 350 before the swap, loved 'em...I'm using MAC shorties but I sure wouldn't mind going to a longtube eventually Are they going to be short like the SBC headers, or full-length headers?

I forgot to ask him that. I'll try to find out.

This is my '73 frame with S&P mounts with Truck manifolds on them. I had to grind the lower bolt off of the port, but it does fit. The passenger side fits perfectly fine. Unless something better comes along, I plan on using these.



This is the drivers side:

Re: 1969 Burb build-up (Bags, 5.3/4L60E, repaint, interior....)

I'm using 2005 truck manifolds and have no issues on the passenger side and will only need minor grinding on the drivers side to get the clearance I need. I'm using the S&P mounts. I tried the EC ones but they told me they are specific to 2 wheel drives and wouldn't work for me.

o man your truck blows!!! if ya dont mind what did that set ya back..... on mine it looks like the engine sits lower, but that may be my error.... for a fact on mine i needed to grind the upper pass side frame frail about .75 inch in by about 10 inch long. and the dr side i had to notch it for the collecter flange..

Re: 1969 Burb build-up (Bags, 5.3/4L60E, repaint, interior....)

On my LT1 swap in Project Slow Build I had sandersons build me a set of Semi-shorties andd I also moved my motor back 2" tward the fire wall since their is no dist. to worry about. They also coated my tranny cross member for me when I stopped by to get the first set of trial headers. Great people over their and they are all hot rodders so it made for a fun visit.

PS. the burb is looking great!

Re: 1969 Burb build-up (Bags, 5.3/4L60E, repaint, interior....)

Got back from vacation and found some more bling-bling on the porch!

Painless 18 ckt harness, lower shock brackest for front shocks (modifying because they hang to low), and sheet metal to fix the floors (thanks Ed, MotherTruckers). I only need about 2 inches from each one (not that I'm complaining).

Quick update: Making a little progress but no pics. Pulled old gas tank and fuel lines. (prepping for my ECE SS tank). Got it up on jackstands and will start rocker and floor repair, gas tank lid install and tail light modifications this weekend. Pics to follow.

Thanks Yukon, I've been planning this for a year. Hopefully it will move fairly "quickly". I guess I need to come up with a name for this project, but don't have any ideas -- anybody got any suggestions?

how much for the painless harness - let me know how you like it, how it installs and whether you are required to keep *any* of the old wiring in the truck (if so, what? dome light? anything else?)

$320 shipped from Summit. So far the only thing that I may have to reuse or replace are the taillight, b/u light, marker light pigtails. I'll keep track as I go.

I haven't started the install yet, but I've done quite a few Streetrods. I like wiring personally (I was originally and electrician in the Navy before going to flight school). These new wiring kits are pretty simple and have most of the hard work done for you. But you still need to do your "homework" and study their wiring diagram THOROUGHLY! Then you have to be patient when laying everything out (running the main harnesses). You can do this about 1-2 days. Making it look good (routing wires, tie wrapping everything.....), now takes a little time. I hate excess wire and wires running everywher. I'll probably do a "How To" when I start installing the harness.

That would be tanfastic!

Auto wiring is my arch enemy and I know there more than a few of us out here. We'll take all the help we can get.

A little more progress. I got the electric gas pedal installed (wish the rest of the project could go this easy!). Lined up passenger side doors to ensure good gaps prior to beginning rust repair. I will start on the rockers and floors this week.........

A few more pics for the rust that need repaired. It looks like most of it was caused from a leaky winshield gasket .

Finally got a little more work done on the rockers/floor this week. I've got everything cut out and most of the new parts fitted. I'll screw/tack them all into place, put the door back on for a test fit, and then if all lines up, time to weld it all up and go to the other side.

Anyone notice the white paper outline on the floor? It is/was the build sheet. I couldn't save it and the only thing I can make out on it is the word "FREMONT". This matches the VIN for where the truck was built.

More progress.... Got all floor pieces (rockers/floor/kickpanel) fitted. Now some POR15 to prevent any future rust (hopefully!).

Patch Panel for air box (this was a fun one to make ). I also raised the lower shock mount on my StrongArms. They are the lowest part on the front end and I always seem to drag them. I think I still have enough travel in my shocks, but may have to go with a shorter one.

Re: 1969 Burb build-up (Bags, 5.3/4L60E, repaint, interior....)

Slowly but surely making progress. The key for me has been making a little progress every day. I try to get 4-5 hrs on the weekend and at least 1 hr a night.

I didn't have much rust, but it affected 5 pieces that are all tied together creating a multi-dimensional metal jigsaw puzzle. I haven't kept track of my time, but I'm sure it's taken longer than some of our Pro's on this board. It definitely adds to my respect of some the guys that do this type of work with relative ease. After much "ciphering" I have figured out that the inner rockers are shorter on a truck than a suburban (lengthwise and widthwise). So after spending several hours trying to make the repop work, I finally took Rokcrawln's advice and built my own. Rok, not that I didn't believe you, but I had the repop so I thought I would try. I will build my own from now on.

When I got bored trying to fit the five dimensional metal puzzle together, I ground down most of the welds on the fire wall. Minimal brain power required to do that!
