Default Engine ****....

Got bottom end done, got heads back from machine shop with the lt4 springs. Got it put together as much as i could before it got too hot in garage!!!


Valves are not adjusted yet, and intake just sitting up there as i was checking wiring harness, apparently it had a missing wire from day one.. (well my day 1)

This is how i got it... if you zoom to front of water pump, you will see cts with nothing plugged in, you also see a connector dangling... does not plug in there... look left you see a couple wires, a yellow and a black just kind of hanging around.. thats where connector should be.... pays to have the schematics!!! If anyone else is doing this swap, go to lt1swap.com,,, all wiring and pcm pinouts are there.. all free!!

You might consider checking the pickup tube on the oil pump. It may not be pushed in all the way. I would also recommend using something like original J-B Weld or hitting it with a couple of spot welds to the bottom plate of the pump. Make sure you have set the clearance between the pan and pickup before you "anchor it" to the pump. My LT1 is still in the machine shop, but I hope to have it looking like yours sometime this winter.

Default Nice work

When I saw your truck with the engine in the back I thought you were making a dump run.
Small screen, I could hardly see the engine in there.
Cant wait to hear the rest of the story
