    Poor girl. There's one thing that would make her genuinely beautiful, my old gray nuts slapping her eyebrows.

    Best not to imagine that in every exquisite hairy gnarled veinous wrinkly sweaty olfactory audible detail though.

    Barkeep .... !! More Mead !!

    Oil pump has been serviced ...



    Tappet blocks are also done ..
    Used gaskets from the 48-52 era cause they don't have a hole in them to feed the hyd's ....
    Being solids will be in use, the tappets are also from the 48-52 era ...

    These motor parts will be set aside until the lower end starts going together ...
    That may take a while, we decided to go with a Knuckleworks left case (65-69) ...

    Just like the left case that was used on farmall's 48EL ...

    This motor is seeing a few mods mostly for gaining longer engine life .
    Not a lot of Hot-Rodding going on with it, but will be taking some meat off the stock left flywheel ...



    Not going to be pulling a trailer or a sidehack or even packing Bertha around so a few pounds off will net a faster revving motor ...



    Basically will be the same as S&S wheels ...

    Can't beat it with a stick ......

    Damn good coating, I run that or chasis saver based on whatís getting covered and have never had a disappointment over the years. If I get it on the rotisserie itís getting coated as Iím not in the business of doing it twice due to Midwest salt bathes. Click image for larger version.

    That's ^^ the first coat of epoxy primer ..
    Guide coat was laid on and block sanded ...

    The first photo is the second primer coat ...
    Going to bolt it on the truck so it won't be dancing around while sanding it once again ...

    When done with that, it should be ready for the color ...





    Wetting down the fender with final wipe (Wax & Grease Remover) gives it a look like the clear been laid down ... Shows the light refraction, which can be seen by eyeballing ..
    Found only one spot that need a bit more TLC ...
    One more primer coat and block sanding will have it gone ..

    My goal is not to have waves showing up in the final finish ...
    ... (Good chance I may achieve that look ??) ...

    ____________________________________

    Kinda getting a few more ducks in a row when I get around to doing the tranny swap (TH 400 to a 4L85E)

    Wanted to add a bit of beef to the driveline with the installation of factory strut rods (The 75 1/2 ton 4X4 Jimmy frame that's under the Binder never had em) coming from the motor mounts going to the trans alum. dust cover ...

    Came up with a used set (Santa dropped em off), powder coated them and was thinking of a way to mount em to the dust cover that came with the 4L80 trans ..
    Being the trans came out of a 2000 3/4 ton Van, the dust cover didn't have the lugs, from what I understand only the 4X4's had them ..

    The truck's THM 400 trans (K case), that I built so many years ago, has a dust cover with the lugs .. (Just a hanging, nothing was ever bolted up to the lugs)
    Thoughts was that I could use it on the 4L80 ....

    That dog won't hunt !!

    Two of the mounting bolt holes don't line up with the 4L80 case and the converter is hitting the back of the cover ..
    Okay, no biggie .. Some work to make up lugs and weld onto the 4L80 dust cover would get the strut rods nailed down ..

    Was in the mode of hunting the material to make it so ..
    Knocked on "farmall's" door to see if he had any solid alum. round stock ..

    While we both (Two heads are better than one, ya know) was in the think tank on how to go about doing this mod to the Oem cover, a Buddy from my hometown in Kentucky sent to me a eBay link showing a cover that was made by GM for only 5 years that used those casted in lugs and fits the 4L80 ...
    Only on the 3/4 & 1 ton 4X4 trucks ..

    Problem solved ...

    (Special thanks goes out to farmall, Hillbilly Josh & Santa)

    Well Guys & Gals

    Since this thread is in a eddy at the moment, thought to post up a few photos ...



    She's coming together ...



    One of these days I'll be pulling into a A&W ...
    (Car-hop better have some stilts handy)



    All that work I did on the fenders and the look is like it came from the factory that way ...

    4L60 behind a BBC? I hope THAT gearbox got a gut rehab! Good transmission design but herptastic execution by the bean counters.

    Just added one of these to the LS frame rail slicing tool kit. A two-cripple crew can skin drivetrain donors so fast it's worth the time dual saws save. (If the damn yard would get ahead of forklift maintenance instead of being reactive that would be awesome but some dreams never come true....) The short stroke remarked on in reviews is a bonus when cutting steel near obstacles. Torque and stroke rate are what matters as useful reach is determined by blade length in vehicle slaying. Saw brand isn't critical but I've got plenty of batteries from other tools so the DeWalt won the day, adding more 28V batteries to my old but superb pre-buyout Milwaukee being uneconomic.

    I have corded Sawzalls too of course and they're cheap used. (Blade chuck parts etc are quite reasonable if ya wear out any of that stuff. I love old Milwaukee tools and going used gets me tools I'd rather not pay retail for like the glorious 5196 die grinder.)

    I've not blasted my hubs yet to send down for wheel building but since this is also a GM truck drivetrain thread here's some info other 33ers might use:

    Reprogramming GM LS and other computers to tune, downloading .bin files (especially custom files so if your ECU dies one day you can just flash another on the spot instead of waiting and paying). Don't be afraid to tackle it but do practice on a spare ECU first. Self and bro are harvesting complete drivetrains from salvage and deleting VATS so we can run the engines on a stand to demonstrate and make them much more desirable than the usual pulls buyers cannot see run.

    It's easy and cheap to make a bench programming harness,

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tGxl0cYBnm8

    feed it about 14 or 15 volts (12 volts is too little so just running off a battery = no joy, though in a pinch you could clip some very long leads to a running truck which would be awkward but work) from a cheap bench power supply like this one I bought for my "kit"

    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09KMS74PT...roduct_details

    then connect a proven adapter from these guys (I bought the VT since they're so popular, I avoid being a beta tester)

    https://obdxpro.com/

    and use your choice of PC or Android device. I picked up a Fire 10 tablet (2021 version, ya want to check and make sure your Android device if ya use one has the right Android version and never update it! If it auto-updates by accident since you were smart and backed up all your APK files, bin files etc off the device you can just reset it) to learn the Android side of the house. I already have old Windows notebooks (old Thinkpads are cheap) to download and reprogram that way. Windows 7 or 10 will do and the computer can be almost any old shitbox.

    All the software ya need for the basics is free like LSDroid to download and reprogram and Universal Patcher, PCM Hammer, TunerPro to edit bin files. Lots of useful stuff is hosted on Github and videos cover how to download it which is (because of Github's original purpose) not what more users are used to. When starting out with any such software I take lots of screenshots for reference.

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...hl=en_US&gl=US

    You can skip the hardware if you want to just download software and .bin files to practice with. The GM tuning community is huge and videos abound from folks like Lowbuck LS for beginners like me.

    People wanting a 4L80E standalone controller can roll their own easily too:

    https://sites.google.com/site/sloppy...ans-controller

    Others here will be much more advanced than I but there aren't a lot of basic overview posts like this out there so maybe it will be useful. There are many old GM trucks out there cheap and they get a lot cheaper when they won't start because the keys were lost and the owner doesn't want to tow the truck to a dealer then pay out the ass, and pay even more if it has BCM or wiring or sensor issues.

    Any 33ers familiar with how to do the same stuff on Fords for free (I'm fine with running cracked OEM software)?
    I've not gotten into that yet and Ford truck forum posts tend to be useless. The OBDX GM people figured out free software sells their adapters and everyone wins. The Ford aftermarket side of the house want their money from vendor lock and license revenue which sells far fewer devices and doesn't build a community even close to as supportive.
