How many miles does this package have on it?
I wouldn't assemble any more until you get it running.
If more than 100k miles I'd get a new water pump and front main seal in that thing.
How did the LBZ come into this? Was it a swap that was started and not finished?
Does the truck have it's original BCM or the one from the LBZ donor?
The allison tcm/wiring for the lly/5sp would be different than the lbz/6sp.

The guy I bought it from told me 220xxx, guess Iíll find out.
Iíve got everything for the truck, not buying any upgrades at the moment, just putting everything back together to make sure it runs and drives well.

Iíve got a post in the new members section that explains it a little better.
Original Bcm is still in the truck. He hadnít tore into any of the electronics yet.

He was swapping the LBZ into the 06, Iím putting the LLY back into the 06. Pretty much reversing all he had going on.

You do realize the 06 LLY and LBZ are the same engine, right? It should've been a straight swap if that's what you're doing.

Now, if you're swapping an 04-05 LLY engine into the 06 LBZ, thats a different story.

Not swapping, putting the lbz in an 89 Chevy. The lly is going back into the original truck. Just reversing the swap the guy was doing.

The point still stands... if the truck is truly an 06 whatís the 8th digit of the vin? 2 or d? If d itís an lbz. If 2 itís technically an lly but is identical to an lbz except tuning. Should have 6 speed and all.

So I got these trucks from a guy that owned a grading company. The 07 LBZ was in a wreck that bent the frame but the driveline was still good. So he was just swapping it out because it had less miles on it.

Got a lil done today. Trying to get this running by the 25th... weíll see haha.

Driveshaft in


Gear selector hooked back up


This exhaust bracket was the biggest pain but itís on


Where the exhaust bolts up to the motor is a little off, guess itíll take some persuading.

Iíve got new transmission oil cooler lines on the way as well as a new oil pan.

The fuel lines that come up near the steering column are giving me a hard time not wanting to sit right. Hopefully get that sorted tomorrow.

Definitely the older LLY with the 5 speed allison(external gear position sensor is the give-away), as long as the original BCM stayed in place you shouldn't have any issues.
And at 220k you'd be crazy not to install a new water pump and front main seal now...it's an absolute bitch of a job when the truck is assembled..

Looked into the water pump and front main seal replacement.

Gonna order a replacement water pump tonight, looks like Iíll need one of those main seal drivers but theyíre expensive.

Anyone know if an auto parts store would have one of those to rent out?

Merchant sells a cheaper seal installer. Or some guys on here will loan or rent them. Where are you located?
