It will be a while before it gets installed because I need to beef up the transmission first.

Everything. A lot of the stuff I don't even the part name to. For the most part if it was part of the engine it was included. I'll post up some pics after I pickup the rest from my friend tomorrow. Could only get about half the stuff into my bonne to get home tonight and left the rest in his van.

Nice !

You do realize the only differences between your trans and the HD are the diff, diff cover and output shaft, as well as a gear ratio.. If you swap in the HD diff, you will have 3.29 gear ratio automatically. All non-HD transmissions have 35/35 drive/driven and the HD diff is 3.29.

I can do better on the setup, but only because people leave stuff at my place all the time.

Yea I know but I have to wait until I can afford the stuff to upgrade it.

Gonna clean everything up and probably sell the oil pan, L67 connecting rods, and the pulleys I don't need.
