Very true. He is one of the most generous guys on the planet with his time. Ask him how to install power steering or disc brakes on a series truck and he will literally walk thru the entire process down to the part numbers with you.

Here's what I have retained :-)

It's an 80 inch that he stretched. I think it's at 86 or so now. It has an LS1 Escalade 6.0L aluminum block coupled to a Muncie M22 4 speed with an early advance adapters adapter that couples it to a Series T case. It has Rover diffs with trutrac rear and 4 pin front and 3.90 ratio rings and pinions. He's got a Santana OD in it too I believe.

I too am guilty of wasting Timm's time once in a while. I get down on my projects and give him a call to shoot the breeze and it's like an injection of rover enthusiasm and I get back to wrenching.

The truck is so light that he reckons it will do OK with the beefed up Rover stuff, I think he is right. We are in the middle of building a 6.2L Escalade mill for a 68 Transmarobird and the engine just fully gets it. They are such a great engine.

That's hilarious...the last engine I built / installed in a "TransAmeroBird" was a 472" Ford.

The guy wanted it because, no kidding, he had blown up the 455 Buick that we put in it previously ... of course, that was like ~1978 or so

"Transmarobird"....great name

Why the 6.2 Escalade vs an original style ZZ 572 big block crate motor?
Mounting issues with the Corvette trans??

Really? '69 was the last year of the first gen Camaro. I'm happy to take any of your cast off '69's!

Now, '70 and up - no thanks...

I love those gauges and the series license plate lights on the dash! The hydroboost setup is also very slick. The custom headers are also really nicely done! I wish I had that kind of talent. When I saw it recently I couldnt stop laughing when he fired it up. It just sounds crazy! Oh yeah and the emblem on the steering wheel! Sweet!

I think Timm just had a harness made and had the ECM reflashed. You can get a hacked harness from various sources that will run that engine with very little wiring, basically three wires. I'm a diehard rocks-simple diesel fan but these new gen III IV engines are soo nice. They are silent at idle, and they put out brutal power. I am really contemplating pulling the 6BT out of my 109 and putting in a 5.3 Chevy.

I dunno. The one I am involved in was a used take out motor from a smashed Escalade. I think the engine was 2500 with everything, and the harness and reflash was about six hundred. Timm's is slightly older and I think it's a take-out as well. No idea what he paid for it. His is a really desirable engine (6.0L aluminum block, only seen in Escalades IIRC) and the iron block 6.0Ls and others are way cheaper. The Gen IIIs are the new small block sans mullet.

I saw this rig again today and Timm had some pics of himself SMOKING the rear tires big time! There are little bits of melted rubber hanging off the rear fender lips, and the rear sides and the drip rail from the roof. That thing is a hot rod!

The 80 was at the ABFM. Couldnt understand why the muncie car trans . . . . With 3.9 diffs, 2.50 trans and 2.89 t-case its like 28:1 low range. Besides ruining tires, Im trying to decide what its good for? Some nice detail work, but gobs of pop rivets are kind of a bummer considering the time spent elsewhere.
