Yeah, looks like its happening. Been looking on/off for a 351 for my dad's truck since he needs a motor, and ended up finding a 460/C6 combo (w/ harness & ECM), so i bought that instead. Plan is to drop the 460/C6 in my truck, then put my 351 in his truck, and i guess sell my small block C6.
Mess of stuff in the bed of my truck
Stainless headers, w/stainless ARP bolts holding them in place.
Ive never seen headers like this before, the d.side wraps down under the engine behind the pan. Its designed to bolt up the factory dual-inlet cat.
Extra crap i dont need (egr, alt, smog pump, all other emissions crap)
I got a set of towers out of a junkyard so i can run stock motor mounts.
Also got a saginaw off a 460 van, thought i had a pic of that but i guess not. Ill get one when i put it on the motor.
So heres the plan. the motor ran strong when the truck was cut up so im not going to do anything to it other than change a couple seals, and clean up the valve covers & pan. Swap my 3G on, add a Saginaw, and eliminate the emissions.
Heres the fun part. My truck is an 88, and the engine is an 89. Unfortunately, 88 has a bastard harness, the 89-91 harness is different. So i have a lot of wiring to do. The engine harness is in good shape, the main control harness (the harness that connects the motor to the ECM, and connects to the lights/ starter relay etc) was butchered when the motor/tranms was pulled. Now, i saved the control harness from my p/u cab since it wasnt compatible with my truck (cab is a 90), so it looks like ill be using that harness instead of my 88. But this means i must change all the connectors that go from the control harness to the chassis harness. This is the easiest way to make it all work i think. So tomorrow im going to the junkyard to either find a 88 460 to steal the engine harness off of (what are the odds of that?), or im chopping up a junkyard 89-91 harness to get the connectors i need to retrofit mine.
