Hey Jeremy where you hooking up your cylinder vapor recovery line to? I didn't see that in the picture. If its not connected, you will get coolant flowing out. Some just run it directly into the water pump inlet. Glad I'm starting to get some LS company here

There is a provision for it in the accessory drive kit. There is a small pipe plug I have to take out right behind the WP

Made a little more progress today. Got the Alt wired, plugged coolant port in the passenger head, oil pressure sender and manual gauge installed, threw away about 30 cardboard boxes that were all over the garage and put some tools away lol

Wired the relay for the MSD today. Got in contact with the drive shaft dude and he should have my drive shaft done by the end of the week.

I am out of town for work again on Tuesday and Wednesday but Thursday Friday Saturday I expect to hit it hard and get some **** done.

It's been too long since I heard my neighbors screaming to slow down

Sweet, I can see some angry neighbors once you lay down a 60 footer rubber strip. My tires are worn out and I'm too cheap to buy new rubber, and if I did my dana 36 would just explode.

Send me a video of the first start up buddy. That cam is going to sound sweet. Cheers

Hate to ask, but you get the starter to crank yet? This sounds lame but remember to hook-up all of the grounds. Took me awhile to figure that one out.

I haven't bolted the starter up yet. I'm getting antsy now.

I need to get my new throttle cable in and get the headers finalized. I'm waiting to get the driveshaft back so I can bolt up the C Beam and get all of it in place before placing the final welds on the headers.

Once I get the headers welded up I'm going to wrap them and SEND IT right past my neighbors house. YEE YEE

Yeet. Any reason you stuck with the cable or was it just one less hassle?

you're getting closer! my C5 headers, $98 F-body oil pan and C5 damper showed up yesterday for my '84 LS swap...

and I just 3D printed a vacuum port for the LS1 intake I just bought ( original was damaged in shipping ). I hadn't used the Fusion 360 modeling software in a year, but the brain cobwebs cleared, and it came back pretty quick.

this is going to be fun....and a learning experience ( hopefully in a good way)

C Beam is loaded and ready for action, waiting on a couple fittings to show up so I can make the fuel filter/regulator arrangement.

I hate C-Beam installation, always ends up being a hassle to get it together.

Good work getting it all hooked up, keep up the great work. I'm really enjoying this thread.

Do a top gear burnout for me when you're done.

Cut collector off and then...

I really only had to smack up #2 and #8. The drivers side I didn't have to do at all

I take it youíre able to weld?
that would be a huge help especially if you plan on going turbo down the road.

Yes. I've only done MIG but want to learn TIG especially for the turbo

Hello,

Today I did try to pull cables from cabinet to engine room, but just burn my nerves.
Hole where old cables has been and where new set is going should bee big enough. But space between heater box and body is so small that job feels impossible?

How have you done it? My new ecu, fuse-box.. is coming to inside where old ecu was... So lot of cables.
I did try to found how heater box is fixed, but even heater core replacement seem to be terrible job? How to remove whole box?

First had a feeling that I can do it, but when come bigger set, did see that no way...
Of course, one possibility could be to try from engine room to inside, if take all wires out from housings? All wires from ecu terminals, fuse box...Just doesn't know how can remove those without breaking anything... and how to get all back to correct places

Or better to take those wire covers away and try again? Quite big job to get those so nicely again

Any ideas what should do?

Mechanical side start to be ready... for first start, only this small job



Looks that can get those to engine room... But...

Should get so many wires at same time between heater box and body
I think, it would be possible if can get free way to hole, and help all connectors one by one through it. But now can't get fingers even close...
