You know... so it'll actually kick off when you hit the brakes.
Meh, who needs brakes?

But I bet your correct Mitch.

My speedo will be ran from the 205 transfer case. Dakota digital sells what you need to make that work. I havent installed it all yet....however, in the next few weeks I will be back on this project pretty heavy. My harness should be here in a few days. I'll post some pictures of it. I'm sure it's another stellar piece from Ben. I haven't seen his work in person but I've dissected many harness pictures and talked to several people, his are, from what I can see, the best.

I've been working on swapping cabs recently, I've received my harness from Ben and it looks amazing, should look very clean in the engine bay. After I finish cutting up my donor cab to make it fit the engine, I'll be putting it all together.

For some reason I can't view the photos even when logged in. On another note I have my lift installed now so give me a call when you are ready to swap the cabs over.

I've got an 1988 c/c dually 2wd that i just started my Duramax conversion on.
It appears in your core support pic that you mounted the oem intercooler behind the core support.
If so, did this still allow room for the radiator And factory cooling fan to fit as well.?
Thanks, chres

Yes, I used oem intercooler and radiator. There was plenty of room for the fan.

I've had the truck together for a couple weeks now, it runs remarkably well, it will break the tires loose in 5th gear. I have the trans pulled right now to send the clutch back to south bend......

I havenít posted here in a while, Iím on a swap page on fb quite a bit, if anyone is interested in it, itís Gm Squarebody Duramax Swap on Facebook. At any rate, since my last post on here, I put the clutch back in, south bend was great with reworking it...quick turn around time and cost like 100 dollars I believe. Anyways, the Dana 70 that was in the truck....well, it was ruined not long after the clutch was reinstalled, too many 4th gear pulls ripped the ring gear teeth off of it....so I put a 14 bolt in it out of a 94 Chevy dually, seems to be holding up nicely. I was also running the clutch master cylinder from a square body, it ended up being a no go, had to modify the firewall and pedal to accept a duramax master cylinder.
