I always have a tube of thick silicone dielectric/brake grease so I just put a little dab on.
Helps keep it from crusting up and sticking when pulling off later also.

We usually have a pretty good idea of house versus shop,I wanted seperate service but code enforcement wouldn’t let me unless I changed zoning pretty much. Some stupid rule about one meter per property,I badgered them about the shop being a seperately deeded property altogether but the “committe...

I want to say when I rebuilt the rear in my truck several months ago I saw “conversion� type races or bearings to switch between the new and old carriers. I still have the Eaton and 4.10’s from my 98 tahoe and considered using them when my daily 2k silverado started whining. Ended up not wanti...

I’m more of a “piece it together yourself for cheaper but end up spending twice as much in the end� kind of guy though.
Can’t pay retail in that scenario or i’d spend 3x as much.

I’ve thought about doing some solar stuff,our bill can be as high as $700 during the winter sometimes (house and home shop).
It’s really time to do another energy audit though and take care of some maintenance.

I’ve become facebook addicted,while I kinda hate facebook and don’t like not being able to find posts as easy as a forum it is much easier than the huge list of forum bookmarks to go through lol.

That was hard to read without paragraphs or many periods lol. As I can tell it’s a 454 TBI™ swap but using the stock ecm/prom. They might use the same ecm but you should most definately put a 454 prom in it. I can burn a stock or deleted prom for it,I would suggest at minimum verifying correct E...

Shouldn’t be a big issue running it on 0411,there is a couple guys on gearhead that have mentioned doing it on chrysler motors to junk the jtech stuff.
I just did a 5.3 swap in an 80 camaro,those cars are as fun to play with as the earlier C10’s.

Also don't forget the 8.1 did come with a factory turbocharged option also through CAT dealers.
I know none of the specs however.
