What up Doe!? Anybody live around the D?
i might be interested..but i cant help until june cuz i need to get ready for the oaktown show in may..shouldn't be too hard of swap its pretty much a 340 block stroked out..which means it uses the same motor mounts as a 318/360. not too sure on the oil pan and pick up though. i could swing out some time on the weekend and take a look (will be working second shift for GM powertrain development so can only do weekends)Is there anyone around Saint Clair Shores that does body work? A friend of mine was working on molding a 6" fiberglass cowl onto my hood and was doing a shitty job so I just took it back unfinished with a mess of bondo and surface rust... at least I hope it's just surface rust. So anyone that could help me finish/redo it that would be awesome. Also I'm supposed to be getting a 390 to go in for my 318 so anyone that wants to help with that swap that knows what they're doing that would be amazing!
its a 318 wow those are some thin water jackets..neways it should be carb..umm the guages and what not will be interesting to figure out since your truck is EFI. but its shouldn't that complicated. what trans and rear end you plan on using?? but yea it would be awsome to get your truck done for woodward cuz the dakota r/t club is coming to the cruise this year (national meet)10 and a half and Harper area... My friend that I'm getting it from said it's a stroked 318 so it should be pretty much a direct swap for what's in it now. I'm just not sure about the wiring and whatnot. I'm not sure what accessories it's gonna have either to know what I need to cannibalize from the old motor. I also have to find out if it's fuel injected or carbuerated, either way I can't wait. I'm not really worried about when it gets in, but I'd really like to be able to take it out a little this summer.
i'll keep an eye out in the macomb/oakland area for ya. if you find a 440 lemme know cuz i can stuff one between rails when i bodydrop my 94(stock floor):trink39:Well from the looks of it the whole deal's falling through. It's just getting a little shady with my friend that's s'posed to be getting this motor from his neighbor or something like that. So I don't know what's going to end up happening with it, but if it doesn't happen I'm going to start looking around the junk yards for a 360 to swap in.
