Not sure exactly, yet. I'm hoping by the end of next week. I'm shooting for a goal to have it running by at least the end of April.

Slow week last week, but here's what I happened to get done.

After close inspection of the headers, it looked like I may have an issue. I bolted the trans to see what the deal is.

Image
Image

It looks like it may just barely clear with the right collectors.
Image


I finished up the wire looms. I should have my wires back in this evening, so I can go ahead and run them through and put the grommets in. Here's how they look with the headers.

Image
Image
Image

I also took all my bolts to be powdercoated black, so they would stand out against the aluminum color better. They should be done today, and I'll pick them up tomorrow, then start bolting things together for the final time.

Awesome Awesome Awesome! Looks great! Definitely fits with the "slick" theme of your truck! Big upgrade from the other engine even though it was VERY nice as well...this just screams COOL!

Thanks, The plug wires came in yesterday, so I went ahead and put them in the looms. I have to find my other pack of grommets before I can put the last wire in, though. The grommets from NAPA come in packs of 7. :lol:

Image

I mounted my fuel pump a couple weeks ago, but never took pics. I still need to run fuel lines, though.

Things are just moving slow lately. It seems like I just get in a hurry to wait at this point.

I had all my bolts powdercoated. Bad idea!! I've never had anything powdercoated, so I didn't know it was so thick. I've ordered some stripper from Eastwood to remove it all, but again, I'm waiting for it to get here. There's a place up the road from me that does nitriding. I'm going to see what that's gonna cost me before I decide what to do with the bolts again.

I did get the ears trimmed on the trans. to clear the exhaust tubing, then painted it.
Image

Finally got the frame painted and installed the engine towers.
Image

And just because I didn't have anything else to do, I stuck everything on just to see how it was all going to look together.

I've made a little bit of progress.

Got all my accessory and engine bolts nitrided. The nitriding leaves the metal with a durable finish. It's a really dark gray color when done. I got an LS2 timing chain to replace the stock LS1 chain. I also finally assembled the engine last night.

Image
Image
Image

Here's some closer shots of the coil pack bracket.
Image
Image

I have no heater in my truck(for now), so the heater hoses are pointless. So I pulled out the hose barbs, and tapped them 3/8" and 1/2" NPT. Plugs will do for now, but if for some reason these need to be connected, I'll get some -12AN adapters and connect them with a 180 deg. fitting.
Image

More stuff installed(for good, at least this time).
Image
Image

Transmission set in place.
Image

I'm working on finishing up my steam line fittings, need to install the balancer, and power steering pulley, then she'll be ready to drop in. I'm shooting for setting it in this Saturday.

I still have some work to do. I have to do some wiring, figure out where to mount the MSD ignition controller, have the headers coated, then get the exhaust connected, driveshaft shotened, belts, hoses, fluids, yada, yada, yada. Hope to have it running by this weekend!

Post Re: Project: LS1ick68
Nothing major happening lately, but I did get a little bit done yesterday evening. I removed the wires from the weatherpack connector on the MSD wiring harness and fed them through the existing hole in the firewall then reattached them inside the cab. I'll find a place inside the cab to mount the MSD controller later. I'll mainly work out the ball of spaghetti in the engine bay first.

I torqued down the trans crossmember and trans mount, then measured the length to have my driveshaft cut down.

Lastly, I finally got around to changing out the old CPP 1" front drop springs for the new ECE 2" drop springs. Sorry, no pics yet, but, wow, 1" of drop makes a big difference!! (Yes, the 1" drop springs will be up for sale.)

I'll try to finish cleaning up the wiring, install the MSD box, reinstall the intake, and finish up some other odds and ends this weekend, then try to take the driveshaft to get cut and take the headers to get coated next week.

Got the hood put back on Saturday and washed it since it was so dusty from sitting since November.

Image

I also ordered a Lokar column shifter system, Lokar TV cable, and a Lokar engine dipstick. I'm still trying to figure out if a stock trans dipstick will work or if I'm gonna have to use a Lokar trans dipstick as well.

Post Re: Project: LS1ick68
Well I've not made much progress lately. I've been a bit under the weather. I've had some sort of viral bug for the past couple weeks, and I just don't feel much like working out in the heat and crawling around under the truck. Along with my sons baseball games and practices, when I have felt like doing something, I haven't had the time.

Anyway, enough of my whining. Here's what I have accomplished. I picked up a barely used 750 HP Street carb.

Image

Worked on mounting the fuel lines. I wish someone made clamps with holes bigger than 1/4". I had to drill out these clamps to use 10mm bolts. I'm gonna take them along with the bolts to my buddies machine shop to make them look a little cleaner.

Image
Image

Here's how I had planned to run my steam lines, but I don't really care for it. A friend of mine gave me a better idea that I may try. I'm trying to keep from running AN lines which is costly. So far, I've got about $12 in this setup.

Image

Here's the modified power steering hose. It's not pretty, but it will do for now.

Image

Wiring finally put into loom and cleaned up a bit.

Image

With my custom plug wire looms, the Lokar dipstick interfered, so I cut 8.75" out of the housing and the dipstick cable itself. The dipstick handle should sit underneath the headers. This will make checking the oil a real PITB, especially when hot, but at least it works. :lol:

Image

I got the headers picked up yesterday!

Image
Image
Image

Image
Image
Image
Image


Things not pictured: Driveshaft is shortened with new 1310 U-joints, painted and ready to install.

Lokar TV cable installed at transmission end. I still need to cut it to length after the carb is actually installed for good.

I still need to wire the fuel pump. I found a fused wire from my fuse panel to hook it to. I just need the time to route the wire along with the rear light section of the harness.

I also need to plumb the trans cooler lines. I'm not sure if I want to run an external cooler or just run it with the cooler in the radiator. I may just hook it to the radiator for now with a temp guage and see what the temps run, and if I need it to add a cooler, I can later.

Lastly, I need to ream the holes in the flexplate to fit the torque converter.

The only things left to pick up is an alternator, belt, hoses and a trans dipstick.

I'm hoping to get some more work done on it this evening. I may try to pick up an oil primer setup today at lunch and pick up some oil and filter. If I can get the oil system pressurized and get the wire routed to the fuel pump, I may try for a short startup. Don't go getting your hopes up, yet. I'm going to shoot for it, but it may not happen.

Thanks, Jonathon. Yeah this stuff is wierd. I'm more tired, weak, and achey joints more than any sickness, but there is some dizziness involved with it. And, no folks, it's not getting old. :lol: I'm only 33. I'm hoping to kick it soon and get back to feeling more like myself.

New upper and lower hoses, belt, trans lines, Lokar trans dipstick, temporary steam line, and other tidbits installed. Trans fluid and coolant put in. Reached in, turned they key to "ON" position, let the fuel pump prime, turned the key with eager anticipation............"click"................Battery is dead!!!!!!!

It's hotter than #$&* outside with high humidity today, and I'm sweating like a.............well I'm sweating pretty bad, so I hooked up the charger and came inside for a little while to cool off while the battery charges. Figured I would post a quick update since I'm inside.

The upper hose is a stock hose for any 99-06 Chevy/GMC truck with a 4.8/5.3/6.0 engine. I told them it was for an 02 Chevy with 5.3L.

I hadn't touched the carb before that vid. I fiddled with the carb settings later and the idle improved. Then, I put it in gear. She really starts singing a tune when its in Drive!! I'll get a better vid when I have someone other than a 9 yr old helping me. :lol:

I'm also hoping to get the exhaust hooked up on Wednesday.

I know. I'm looking forward to it. Hey, I know of a few other guys(with stepsides) that should be there. It would be cool to park together. If nothing else, we all should try to meet up for a photo-op!! :punk:

Got the headers connected to the exhaust yesterday.

I'll try to get a better video, but for now, this is all I was able to get. You will have to turn up the volume to hear it good. There's alot of background noise going on at the muffler shop.

New vid from last night. Sorry about the foggy look. I took the camera out of the nice cool house outside into the muggy, humid air, and the lens fogged up. :lol:

Not sure why my power steering pump is whining like that. It's full of fluid.
