I'm also impressed with the speed of the build - you went from primer to a completed truck in less than 2 months!

Re: 85 C10 LT/6L80 Frame off build

The alternator wire isnr getting warm.is it? Hard to tell how beefy it is but I installed some stock Camaro e fans on a build and that wire happend to be to small. Another note, is that a new 4 core rad support bracket? If so where did you source it from?
Fantastic build!

Re: 85 C10 LT/6L80 Frame off build

luke,
Thanks again for sharing this build. I re-read the thread again & did not see what you did for your trans linkage? would you be willing to share how you connected the trans to the steering column (in relation to shift linkage)?
Also I was wondering if you would share what wires on your firewall block (truck) you are using on the engine portion to the LS? I would like to know what wires you used from the truck part of the harness?

thank you again & I am following along on the blazer build too!!
