Re: 1972 Chevy Pickup Project.

I sent my ecm to a guy on eBay and was around $75 . He was super helpful and can tune for gear ratio cold air intake electric fans etc. Here's a picture of his eBay info.

Re: 1972 Chevy Pickup Project.

Got a lot done today. I refilled all the fluids and found an immediate problem. I know I should have put on a new water pump when I did the motor tear down but I check everything and it looked really good. As it turns out the seal behind the pulley is bad because water started running out. Went to the local parts store and picked up a new one. Im going to finnish up the new fuel filler neck tomorrow and then ill try to start it up for the first time since the teardown.

Re: 1972 Chevy Pickup Project.

The ecm would have to be reflashed first to delete anti theft passlock system for it to start unless you are using all the stuff from the donor like the body control module steering column etc. Just a thought you may have that all worked out already.

Re: 1972 Chevy Pickup Project.

So Ive got an appointment to have the ecu reflashed and that will fix my tire size change, my o2 sensor delete, any engine related changes, etc. But where do I have the computer reprogramed for the inside components? I want to turn off the extra air bags, reprogram for the new factory stereo, etc. Any ideas?

Re: 1972 Chevy Pickup Project.

You could take the bulb out of the cluster for the air bag light and for the factory stereo if it came out of the same vehicle everything else did it should work without being locked.

The radio that was in the tahoe was damaged. I purchased a replacement like new to put in.

Re: 1972 Chevy Pickup Project.

If radio is locked dealer can program it. I do it at work for people who replace the radio themselves. Truck looks great with grille and bumper on.
