Just so you all know what I have to work with...here are a couple pics.

Tuesday night. Our first snow storm of the year.


Wednesday night...


I still have to crawl underneath and get the oil pan, pan bolts and whatever else that might be lurking underneath.

Parts should be in today...

Hmmm, maybe not...ran into some snags during the install. For some reason, one of the rods would not rotate on the crank after torqueing(sp) it to specs. So, I took some 1000grit sandpaper and sanded the back side of the rod bearings to thin them up a little. Well, I guess I took too much off and now the rod is banging around again. Weird thing is, it'* not the same rod that got torn up before. ****, oh well. $200 down the drain. Might as well start off fresh. Called up Gmpartsdirect and ordered a series III */C engine with matching PCM/wiring harness. Had to use a different source for the HD trans to match up with it, along with the axles etc etc. Thank goodness for tax refunds!




































































ha ha ha! j/k. No, it runs fine now.

Did you really sand the new rod bearing? I'm still trying to figure out how could've taken too much material off with ultra fine 1000 grit sand paper.
