In for a penny, in for a pound...

Now that I have one rover back on the road I can turn my attention to my old daily driver, the LWB.

I currently have the following on hand:
High mileage zf and BW TC
Lo mile 4.6 long block

Currently in the truck is a somewhat tired 4.2 that I know has a lightly scored bore on #7, but still runs pretty good.

I guess I'm looking for validation to go ahead and remove the 4.2 in favor of the 4.6, find a low mile trans and fit an LT230. I have a deadline of july 30 cz that's when the next smog is due.

The 109 project on hold? I forget exactly what broke on it, but I say fix that and keep driving her until you finish the 109. Trust me, I am the king of too many projects and it's not a good way to do it!

If you have the 4.6 block already, seems like kind of a no brainer. You could have it done in a weekend.

Not really on hold. Just can't move forward until Ron gets my frame out of the garage up there in Niagara Falls so the shipper can pick it up.

Tend to agree on just slappin the working trans in there on the Loob and be done.

Might just put the 4.6 in the SWB some day.

Never. Been there, done that.
