How did you like the Advance Adapter kit for the 4L60E to NP205?
I have heard mixed reviews.
Thank you for the compliment.

I had no issues with the Advance Adapter kit. What have you heard and what are the problems?

I have heard modifications were needed for the mount and inner drive sleeve that was not described in the instructions from AA.

I did not experience these problems. Plus any questions that I did have were answered by calling their technical support line.

Re: Creamsicle: My 70 K10 SWB is about to get sweeter

I've come to the conclusion that these trucks are like owning a home... You're never done working on them. My wife calls me the "Lowes Man", because Lowes' motto is "Never Stop Improving".

Well I decided to swap out my front Dana 44 drum axle with a newer mid 80's disc brake axle. I know that since I have the 1970 axle that I could've just rebuilt mine by swapping out components from the knuckles out, but I decided to do an axle swap. By the way, if anyone is interested in the 70 (one year only) drum axle let me know. I plan to sell it.

Time to remove this axle

Re: Creamsicle: My 70 K10 SWB is about to get sweeter

Over the summer I found that I had some oil drips coming from my oil pan. I decided while I had the front axle out that I would correct the problem. Well I made two mistakes. The first one was using a fabricated oil pan. The Tilden pan is nice, but I think it contributed to my slow leaks. The second mistake I made was trying to change the pan gasket with the engine in place. I thought that maybe there would be enough clearance to be able to pull the oil pan out if I disconnected the motor mounts and jacked up the front of the engine. Well that didn't work. Maybe I should've tried to slide the crossmember forward to remove the pan instead. In the end I was able to get the old pan gasket out and a new one in. I know you're not supposed to use any sealant with the LS style oil pan gaskets, but I decided to put a thin film on the surface anyway. I just didn't trust the sealing surface of the fabricated pan. Unfortunately, I don't have much confidence that just replacing the gasket and re-torquing is going to solve the problem. I'll keep my fingers crossed and see what happens come spring.

Man that’s a shame it’s leaking, that sure is a nice looking pan. Nice work overall. That’s such a great looking truck, you’ve done a great job!

It is a nice looking pan, but I think the fabricated pans just don't stack up to a cast/machined pan. It's reinforced around the bolting flange, but IMO the mating surface just isn't strong enough and flat enough like a machined surface pan. Thanks for the compliments.
