    Great platform to build upon. 360 or 401?
    Hey bubba get your hand off my ass,

    Some days it is just not worth it to gnaw through the leather restraints.

    I am not sure when they started, but I do know from personal observation that some of them had a semifloating D60 in them. Believe ot or not, they even had 53s in some flat fenders

    Yah I will be crawling all over/under/in this thing this weekend. I already picked up some parts today, electric fuel pump, block off plate (looks like a chevy one will work), new fuel filters, upper and lower radiator hoses, oil filter. The bellow inside the fuel pump broke and so its sending gas into the crankcase and oil into the fuel line.

    got her up and running today, pulled the mechanical fuel pump and installed the electric one, and a block off plate. just have the fuel pump hooked upto a temporary toggle switch for now, just to get it up and running. it actually runs pretty smooth and feels like it has some power left in her. found out the front driveline is MIA so im hoping theres nothing wrong with the front axle or the transfercase.

    i verified the axles are a 44 front and a 53 rear





    well if i end up putting the chevy axles in with disc brakes all around, ill still have a park brake lol (and check out that exhaust lol)



    the PO cut the sides off the original wrap around bumper, atleast the pieces he cut off are in the bed
