You GO Boy!!!
That motor is a thing of beauty.......
Excellent work, Well Done......
Glad it'a all worked out ok.
Thanks for the comments. I am going to try and take some pictures this weekend in the sunlight. I want to make sure that all the people who read this thread have new stuff to look at
Long bump to the top. I posted some updates in the first post. As promised here are some pictures I took at the seller's house when I first purchased Buster:
What a beautiful 67.
Some internal engine pictures. It is a 347 stroker motor with all the goodies:
More later on in the thread
Some additional engine swap pictures:
Last of the pictures for now Front suspension repair:
Phew ok I think that is the majority of the pictures from all my old threads. As I mentioned I have a couple of upgrades in the works so watch this space.
Looking good! Great engine swap!
a good time to paint your master cylinder.
that 347 looks tough, neck-snapper over that 2V!
Doin' it nice takes lot's of time even when everything goes your way. Looking great Jeff ! Got one dummy question fer ya though. Why did the previous owner feel the need for a block heater ?
What heads are you using?
Haha good eyes! Originally the truck was in Colorado so the block heater was probably needed there. I didn't put it back on for here in TX
