Motor has gone through an extensive tune up....new oil pump, timing set, valves, springs, guides, pushrods, lifters, rockers, distributor, and gaskets...as well as most sensors. Still more to go

Well....it was all running fine like this just yesterday, after I spent all day yesterday replacing, motor mounts, plugs, wires, distributor and rotor, fuel filter, fuel pump, and an oil change as well as punching out the catalytic, I took it for a drive and lit the tires up , and did fine. As I got around the block it started to run rough with a backfire from the exhaust and intake. Don't want to pour more money into the motor I don't plan on keeping so i@ thinking I should just go ahead and swap it with the V8 , I forgot how frustrating it is to work on your own stuff 😤

Fixed a few more things here and there...almost road worthy

4"drop in the front 5" drop in the rear... gone get ready to pull the motor and trans soon and drop in that sweet SBC 383. The process won't be fast but when it's done, it will be.

Got the rear lowered 5" waiting for spindles and coils to get the front down 4". Then will rebuild the trans and go through the motor...runs good at the moment but want to check things out before I get any further...the stock 4.3 will stick around for a bit until I get the 383 gone through and rebuilt...then it will get swapped out once that motor is all set up.

Reminiscing old days... $500 turd s10 project... in time turd rocket... #s10 #383 #sbc #smallblock #sleeper
