Default '82 Duramax Swap Pictures

I may have discussed my Duramax swap into my '82 Chevy Tk. with a few of you here & also asked a lot of questions (special thanks to Mike L. & Pat for all the tech advice).

Here is a link to some photos that I have taken so far. Please check back often as the motor is going back together & I'll have more photos up soon when the motor & cab finally come together.

Looks like it's going to be sweet. That background on the pages is cool too.

Thanks for the feedback.....

Looks like everyone is being good for New Years.

Sikdmax.... Yes, the parts I bought from you are also going on this truck.

Now if I can remember where all the parts go. Painted the engine today & there are parts everywhere. I'm almost done with the dirty part. Still have to paint the starter, alt & AC compressor.

Whats with the factory engine sealer.... $16 for a little 4" caulking tube. Needed this for the intake manifold & oil pan etc., since I decided to remove & bead blast all the engine pieces.

Thanks,
Lonnie

I'd have to have a big box for all the left over parts and bolts that I couldn't find the original use for. Nice project Lonnie.

Had a minor disaster today. While moving my engine across the garage today on the crane (to set it in the frame), a wheel locked up on something & the crane stopped. The engine swung & tipped everything over, dumping the motor on the floor. Once it started to tip, there was nothing I could do to stop it. It fell as gracefully as something 900# could fall, even if it was only a little over a foot. I'm so glad I spent so much time cleaning & painting the pan yesterday..... now the aluminum part is cracked. I had the lower tin part off, so it survived, but the pickup wasn't as fortunate.

Used so many 4 letter words, I had to make up new ones....

So.... are the flywheel bolts 14mm Allen heads? It has to come off to get to the rear 2 pan bolts. It would have been too easy to space them out 1/2" to clear the ring gear I guess.

If anyone has an upper pan & pickup for a reasonable price, send me a PM.

That sucks Pat has 3 engines and only one good pan they break easy.

Pat thinks they are 10mm but they could be 14mm.

I was originally going to remove the pan after the engine was installed so I did not have to worry about scratching it. But, the rear pan bolts are behind the flywheel, so that was not going to work. So, I spent a lot of time grinding, masking & painting the pan on the engine yesterday for this reason. That sure paid off.....

Things were going too good, something had to happen.

I wanted to get the engine in before it got injured. I could not set it on the pan after it was painted, nor could I let it hang on the crane for a few days. So much for good intentions.

I did put up a few more engine pictures of the painted parts before all the accessories went on.

Call me in the morning. You will need a ring gear lock tool and I will loan you mine with the socket if you need. Sorry for the problem.
