Damn, I can feel the disheartenment(if thatís even a word) in this picture.itís a bummer but at least you have options and can get it sorted.

Re: Project 67 DRGNWGN - 67 Burban!!

ya having no luck selling this yet though. I don't have Facebook so I posted on Craigslist, 5 miles, and offer up...no luck yet. I'm getting the front frame painted now along with the crossmember but that will be done by the weekend.

Looking good. My project is kind of in the same place right now. It would be nice if they went back together as fast as they came apart

Re: Project 67 DRGNWGN - 67 Burban!!

some of my pics don't want to upload....but anyways. got the crossmember sanded down and painted up and back on. 60 bucks in new grade 8 hardware

not sure which route I want to go down now, haven't had any bites on my donor truck so my motor issue is still at a stand still.

Mine was the same way. I got lucky, I cleaned it all up and re-tightened the pan bolts and it quit leaking. Mine had some modifications done to it before I got it and I wonder if they forgot to go around and double check the bolts.

I don't think a few weeks is out of the question for a timeline unless you have trouble getting something you need.

Keep us posted on your progress.

Good deal.

My engine was an LS1 so I didn't have to change anything on it.

only reason for the pan change is because the air ride. believe the pan will hang too low.

I am chasing oil leaks on my 03 Yukon LS. Do you have any good pictures of the LH side of the engine?

Re: Project 67 DRGNWGN - 67 Burban!!

I am leaking a lot of oil. Are there any sensors or anything else on the LH side where it could be coming from. I already replaced them crank sensor seal.

the only sensor on that side is the coolant sensor for the ecm. is your leak coming from the top? only thing I can think of is valve cover or oil pan...?

Re: Project 67 DRGNWGN - 67 Burban!!

Thanks I know the vale covers are leaking and the rear main seal too. I am just trying to get all of the parts lined up so I only have to tear it down once.

Re: Project 67 DRGNWGN - 67 Burban!!

thanks my drill bit came in about 30 minutes ago so I drilled and tapped the head....this made me nervous lol

I'm not sure if the stock 67 sender will work though. when I get to the cluster, I will be modding it like ls1nova did with the s10 speedo. I will be adding a clock and camaro tach, and delete the circuit board and make a harness. so not sure if the idiot gauge temp sender is used or the 5 hole cluster temp sender. I believe they are 2 different ones?
