Finally an update. Got the block surface finally prepped for install off the heads. still need to chase the threads, havent worked on the rear end tho im really wanting to but as always ballistic is slow on shipping so my stuff wont even be here for another week and i need to find a welder to use in the mean time ugh. thats about it.. Im reallyhoping to get everything i need and crack down and finish this thing here in the next month or two max. I just want to cross all my T's and dot my I's, i cant afford any hiccups during install lol
Picking up my transmission today!!! I havent really dont much of anything lately. I went on a rant the other day and completely cleaned off and organized that messy counter and all plus i went out of town and really havent had much time to do anything. I will have pics tonight!!
Well i have to say is that EVERYONE that has messed up as redeemed themselves. Dealing with a salvage yard out of GA and they are great! Going to pick up my NEW transmission for FREE no Shipping and they dont even want the old one back! so now I have an extra trans! lol
update. got PS Head finally bolted on. did some other mock up just for fun and to double check clearance... Let it be known. that these valve covers will NOT work with EGR tube. Luckily im not running EGR and am just going to find something to plug the hole.
If you run a mega shifter you will run into problems with the shifter lever that goes into the tranny, because it still has to operate the TRS. B&M does not make (to my knowledge) a shift lever that will still operate the TRS. But i do belive that art carr make the correct shift lever. I rigged my shift lever up to make it work its not pretty but it works.
well i dont like riggin stuff up unless i have to. Im sure it works perfect for you but, with all the work involved id rather just get one i know will work with no modding lol. However it would look kickass. i would actually move it up and put it towards the front where the stock manual shifter is =)
Ordered Diff cover today.. Cheap Summit chrome. Idc im gonna spray it with Metalcast. I cant jusitfy droppin 100 on a HD one when i dont wheel.
i know this is small. but any suggestions on which spark plug i should run?
Idiot me orderd all the wrong junk from ballistic so im sending that back today.
next week im relly goign to concentrate on finishing the other head. and get it ready to install. I still neet to shim the springs and lap the valves, clean the surface and repaint.
Next weekend going to JY for Radiator, Auto Column, oil lines, and motor mounts. I have found ones on ebay but I need the Block Plates too! sucks. Gotta wait a little bit for the rear brakes and ECM tune.. Need to get some money set aside first.. Then im done!! Sorta
like i mentioned before im gonna hit up the JY today for an Auto Column. As the time nears no harm in Swapping columns pre swap. i know Ill have the cable to tuck away and the shifter just chillen but if its one less thing to do come "Swap Weekend" then i can like for a week or 2...or 3 lol
Ahh Sorry Mark! I left my parents and when I got back to my house, I realized I didn't grab the pedal! Sorry man! When I get home next, maybe this weekend, I'll get it shipped out. I wanna say $15 would cover shipping from USPS. I can't imagine it being more than that.
