On your swap, try to put your headers on prior to sitting the engine all the way down and bolting it in place. I have tried Pacesetter Fbody headers and Schoenfeld C10 LS swap headers and it looks like Iíll be lifting the engine first and maybe even slightly notching the frame. Mine is an LS1 and I noticed it does have different mounting holes then an iron 5.3. I canít remember which adapter plates work either but Schoenfeld recommends using a certain Dirty Dingo part number and claim their headers will fit.
If you use the camaro LS3 or L99 waterpump like I am using, it will line up with the truck accessories of your 5.3 and you can use a short uppoer radiator hose like I am using instead of running one across your radiator.

That sounds pretty painful but, 7 days off seems like a legit reward.

The survice I primarly provide is perforating. I send down explosives into the well and I shoot perforating guns to make holes in the casing (pipe). Frac then pumps sand through those holes. The thing is we usually only do an area of 100-200í at a time. Frac will pump sand. Then we send more guns in and shoot more holes, then they frac again.

Re: My 85 C10

Well, I finally got some time off work and got to ise my buddies shop oday. Lifts are a gift from God. After a little grinding on the driver side frame rail, a little bleeding. An awful lot of cursing... the driverside Schoenfeld header is in. Iíll say this,#%*! Schoenfeld headers. Fit 73-87 C10ís my @$$. The driver side second primary kept hitting frame rail enough that it didnt want to slide in forward. Once I shaved that down, it kept hitting the clam shell motormount. After denting the primary and shaving a little off the clam shell it fit. Then the gridning wheel broke in half and scraped my nose a little, haha. No big deal though.

Also got the Circle D Stall, TCI Flexplate and 4l80e in!! Tomorrow Iíll drop the trans pan and put the TCI pan on. The torque convertor botls off the Ď98 LS1 couldnít be reused, neither could the ARP bolts. I had to use the bolts that TCI sent with the flex plate to clear one of the bolts on the rear main seal cover or a timing bolt, couldnít really see back up in there.

Iíll upload pics, hopefully they wont be upside down.

Re: My 85 C10

Re: My 85 C10

I decided to install the Lokar column shift linkage. If you use this on a 4l80e, you will want to take the allen head out of the adjustable piece that bokts onto the side of the transmission, and shift the insert to where the arm is almost horizontal when in park. I will upload a picture to show what I mean. If you dont the piece will be sticking up vertically when youíre in park.

These arenít my photos but I followed these to do the install. I also had to bend the shaft in order for it to work.

The pic probably posted sideways... but the adjustable arm bolted to the trans should be all the way forward/horizontal with your column in park.

Re: My 85 C10

Still waiting on my Riedtech Strong Arms, spindles, front sway bar and coilovers.
I was really hoping to get all of that installed along with the SSBC rotors & Wilwood calipers before I am back at work for two weeks. I still have 3 more days off so maybe I’ll be in luck!

Re: My 85 C10

Finally got some packages from Ridetech delivered a few weeks ago. Friday I took the bed for a 5 hour journey from Midland Texas to Plano Texas to get started on the body work. Truck already has a Sir Michaels roll pan welded on and a shaved tailgate. My buddy Francisco is going to shave the stake pockets and the fuel door. Minor body work is needed and it will be ready for paint. Hopefully in the next 4-6 weeks I will be able to take tbe rest of the truck and get it finished as well.
