New motor going in

Going away for a week on Monday and i'm leaving the truck with a freind who will be puting in another 302 motor to replace the one in it now. Thats going in so i can hopefully start the rebuild of the engine in it. Im doing it this way so that the truck doesn't spend any time off the road. So i'l let you know how it goes in a weeks time.

Re: New motor going in

Its in!!! I havn't taken it to far but did take it out for a test and its feels good. This engine has around 90000 to 100000 kilometres on it so it should be good to get me through until i can start the rebuild. It only cost me $150 and a couple slabs of beer so i reckon it was a good deal. My freind who put it in for me said he could also help me do most of the rebuild to hekp keep the costs down a bit.
