Got the mount fabbed up for the Rakeway carrier bearing, it replaces the existing doubler on the back of my front 3 link x-member. Once installed I have just enough room to get a TW shorty shaft between it & the t'case.... fingers crossed !



Also, got the ECM mount made up.



Slow progress but getting there... might have the motor running by Christmas

Working on the throttle cable, used the Chevy Silverado outer with the LR EFI inner.... should look stock once I solder a new nipple on the throttle body end.







Clutch piped up using some M13x1mm banjo's & dash 4 hose.

Got the main fuel tank pump upgraded to a high pressure, hi-flow type to suit the Vortec along with the Earl's -5/-6 adaptor and a new connector.

If your doing the same make sure you get the correct hose, it's 'in tank' specific and to SAE J30R10 spec. Regular hose won't last as the outer layer isn't designed for constant immersion in the fuel.



Next to get the tanks plumbed up and we're one step closer

Ok . Just a quick testament to Nick's meticulous engineering after 1 year 6 month my gen III has clocked 16,000 and no engine or fit and finish problems whatsoever. I did manage to kill the 4l60e as a rock ware belly guard which prevented a proper amount of air flow over the transmission and towing another 90 for 2500 miles across country caused the failure during the first 3,000 miles of the install. The BW 1339
Quatra Trac T Case has it's down sides as it does not like the harshness of a Detroit locker witch will be pulled as soon as I can find a 4:11 rear LSD set up and the chain is definitely not as robust as the gear to gear LT230 set up. Regardless this is by fat the best modification the truck has experienced. I have got tons of Hps on demand and still grin ear to ear by mashing the pedal as I watch a waward jeep disappear in his attempt to catch a rover. This truck will also tow a double axle car carrier with no problems. If I had to do it all again , I would start with a Markiw engine swap before any other mod and go from the inside out in building a truck. This mod is not for the low mileage garage queen but is essential if you want to have a realizable everyday vehicle

Clay,

Glad to hear you are still enjoying "my" truck. I think it had about 213K miles when I got it from the fellow in Long Island, NY, then put a few on it myself. I do miss the open top driving most all year round in San Diego.

Dennis

Needed to get a replacement starter motor for my '99 Vortec, old one was the long & short bolt type, new is the later 2 long type. If you have the same swap you'll need another long bolt and it's part #11610787.

Just a quick follow up on the fuel lines, one of the guys on another forum pointed out (after I posted this pic) that you can flip the fuel rails by trimming the plastic tabs off the plenum to get the connections pointing backwards again on the drivers side.

Would save a few $ on the 180 degree fittings....

As I've got the front fenders all bolted back on, now to work on the 'little' things, like rad hoses and the rest of the plumbing.





The top two hoses will be connected with a 6" x 1.25" dia aluminium coupler.

Got some more work done on the exhaust manifolds... added the opposite end cylinder pipe to stabilize the outlet pipe.



Then added the middle pipes.



The drivers side will need a couple more 45's to offset it away from the frame rail to get the V-band coupling in.
