got the ls into day finally. bit** fought me every step of the way.


did a test fit last week and the oil pan hit the engine x-member, so i order a ord hd xmember. it's nice  :rockon:

old og xmember to the scrap pile

new xmember install, it was pretty easy just had to drill 3 new holes.

did another test fit and i still need some more clearance, so i stacked some 1/4" plate and drilled some holes for the motor mounts to sit on top of. after another test fit i had to move the mount that bolts to the frame up 3/4" and everything finally fell into place.

these are the engine mounts i used, they are nice cuz they are adjustable. so moved the engine forward a inch so i get more slip on the my rear dshaft yoke. since i went from 6" to 4" lift my custom made shaft was too long. so moving the drivetrain forward should solve that problem.

i got this adapter from advanced adapters so i could keep my 208 and mate it up to the new 4l60e. the newer 60's have a 6 bolt tailhousing instead of the older 60 and 700 4 bolt tail. this adapter also has a vss built into it.

the adjustable mounts engine.

and the bit** finally sit in between the frame rails.



now i'm going to clock the tcase, build a x-member for that, plumb the fuel lines, plumb the trans lines, hook all the pigtails for the puter up, install the drive by wire gas pedal, put the headers on (i will need to cut some frame rail to get them to fit), make a y-pipe so all the exhaust is on the drivers side away from the clocked tcase and fuel lines, put the front clip back on, possible re-wire the whole truck, do the rad hoses and put my elect fans back on. i'm sure i forgeting a ton of little sh**.

so i figure i'll be dun by the first of next year, but we will see about that..........

i had the 5.3 ls sitting in the garage for over a year, and the 454 sucked gas like crazy.

true, but that 454 i pulled is really built up for a hotrod or a mud bogger not a crawler.

haven't had much time to work on the k5 as of late. i did get the fuel system plumbing started. i used compression fittings and they worked great for connecting to the ls fuel rail. i just need to finish plumbing the filters and walbro pump. i also installed the exhaust manifolds, just needed a little trimming on the frame rail, but they fit. i also capped off all the emissons crap, won't need it. tonight i brought the ls wiring harness inside to the kitchen table and started to clean it up. i know this wiring setup works cuz my cousin heard this motor run on a engine stand before it was bought. it just was a little sloppy. i forgot to take some before pics. after all clean up is done i have 2 power wires, 2 grounds, 2 fan wires (which i don't know if i'm going to hook up since my dual fan shroud has a thermosat build in it), starter wire, and a key on power wire. i just wanted to get into the this harness and get it cleaned up. don't think i will install it in the k5 until i have everything back together.

here is a pile of wire nuts that i cleaned up with some butt connectors and some heat srink.


all of those wire nuts were on this mass of wires. from this cluster of wires there is a positive and negative and a starter wire that need to be hooked up.


most of these wires above are connected to this seperate power box that has a fuses and relays inside. from this power supply box there are a postive and negative wire to hook up. there is also a wire for key power, fuel pump, and fan 1 and fan2.

so put some time in on the k5 yesterday. got the front clip all back on and bolted down. put my electric fans back on. got the drivers side wheel well on so i can start the wiring and mounting the ls puter.

dropped the steering gear box down and took off the pittman arm so get it ready for hydro assist. i still need to drill and tap the other cap on the top.


on xtreme 4x4 i saw a trick to hook up a oil pressure gauge to the ls block. this alum part is right above the oil filter. you drill out a hole and tap it.



also got my trans fluid lines started but need some 5/16 oil hose, which no auto part stores seams to have any.
i'll get more dun in the coming weeks.

You can get 5/16 trans hose at AutoZone, they sell it by the foot.
