Finished adapter GM 4L60E to LT230

First and foremost, a great big thanks to Charles Galpin for sending me the spare mainshaft!
The shaft was cut and machined (muthalickin hard metal in some places) then pressed into a GM yoke I machined down and bored for a friction fit. The shaft was then tig welded (two passes) at a local shop as my Syncrowave 250 hasn't been set up yet. Here is the finished product that I built using the original Novak-Adapt 4L60E to Dana 300 adapter I designed years ago. The front spacer came out of the 6061 8"x5" chunk in the lathe. The rear plate was fabbed from 6061 12"x12"x1" flat stock. Everyone is jumping on the LSx wagon (with good reason) but I have a spare LT1 and 4L60E waiting for a project (I'm probably fitting it into my '84 110). I also included a couple of photos of my hybrid '88 LS1 project started several years ago but still waiting completion.

Cool. What do you plan to do to the brakes?

The LS1 88" coiler uses Currie 9" hi-pinion axles with Dana 44 front knuckles and brakes and Ford Explorer disc in the rear. The 110 will get vented 110 rotors/calipers and better pads all around. Stopping power isn't any more an issue with a bigger engine than a stock unit. Larger tires and heavier loads have the impact.

That's an option. I've considered it on the 88" even playing with a unit and bracket but it is on hold like so many projects. With retirement, I'm going get some stuff completed over the next year or so.

No. Like Nick's gen III setup, the engine is pushed forward 4". There's enough room in a 90/110 for that move.
