well it only took having a baby, but the engine is back together! new head gasket and a valve job.

I have most of the accessories ready to go as well, I just need to steel JP's awesome York mount idea and get it mounted up.

I know it looks like the same picture I always post of this engine, but it's actually bolted up tight! I just need to weld a bung in the oil pan and it's ready for the transmission.

I thought about going stainless but it's over kill and I can't just mig weld it. Maybe next time. I will get this coated once it's done.

Yeehaw!



As high as it can go. Belly won't be flat but it's close.



Just enough clearance at the firewall



OOOPS. Doesn't look like the York is going to work



Need to source the proper stiffener or make one of my own. One of a few issues gong with a 70 series AL bell housing.

is that engine is over enough to the mans side of the truck?? i cant believe that you dont have enough room to get a york on there.. it doesnt look like you have your engine that low in your frame to where the yoke wont work...

i would solid mount the york as tight to the engine as possible then and make a little adjuster pulley like i did on mine and adjust it that way.. probably have to hang it off the bottom..

looks good though..

you dont have the side stiffeners off of your 70 series engine in the corner??

i might have to come over at some point this weekend and see whats going on...

yup, it's over as far as it can go. I think the difference is my body is so low. That and the origanal mounts are quite high. When I was looking at your york the bottom is at the top of the frame rail. The top of mine hits the the top of the frame rail.

The blocks of the two 3Bs are different. I got that stiffener off the BJ70 engine. I posted up on mud to see if there is one for a older 3B

I was planning on the adj pulley but never thought of hanging it down. That's a good idea.

i hope to get the engine mounts welding in tomorrow and get that damn hoist out of the way.

wow.. that looks good.. i like that the york is still on there..


Ummmmmm, why dont you get this ready for black hills and use your tundra to tow it and leave the Duke till after summer??? i can even lend you my car hauler for the trip as i will be driving Rank again.. you have a ton of time to get it done and you have most of the parts..
plus it would be a helluva time in that thing..

hhhmmm that has me thinking but I don't think it will happen. I could give you a million excuses why....but it comes down to; I am just too lazy.

To be honest it's the body work. It's like you and Xtendatoy. You are WAY closer to getting that truck on the road but the sheet metal work SUX.

I wish I enjoyed it more.
