Got my fabbed-up liquid line for my LS conversion on my '91 V3500 TIG welded-up and installed on the truck!  Next is fabbing-up new transmission cooler hardlines.  That isn't going to be fun!

Here is the old with the new:

And then installed on the truck

Sadly, sold the GTO yesterday to help pay for repairs to the race car I tore up last Friday. Been a tough week.

Hey guys,

Since I got my 850 Demon carb working good and the 700R4 trans shifting correctly, the old 69 is such a pleasure to drive, I drove it to work Tuesday through Friday.
70 mph at 2200 rpms is much nicer than 70 at 3200. biggrin

In a couple weeks I will be driving it down to Woodburn Oregon to watch my nephew and cousin race their Mopars. Maybe I will do some test-n-tune Saturday before the Mopar drags.

Wonder how many less stops for gas I will need? wink My last trip down there I managed 10.6 MPG on the first tank at 60 mph doing 2800 rpms.

Moved them.  They were the very last things to come to the new house.  Chevelle had a dead battery...had to get my other Blue Top Optima I use as a spare/trailer winch battery on another trip.  I think the original one is dead now, trickle charge since yesterday and the light is still red.

Thank you.  I'm not sure of the brand of building, will have to look for a tag somewhere. Footprint is 23ft wide x 35 ft deep.  Currently I need to put more stuff on the shelves, in the toolbox and get the Costco pagoda put up(probably after finding a hot tub)...using too much floor space.

In progress, drop coils for the Camaro, some fancy ends and center link.
Then the intake will come off as part of fixing stuff and distrib work/conversion, re-calibration.

Life is better now. Grand kid came home from LeukemiaVille 2 weeks back, neglected home stuff getting caught up.

Drove the chevelle up to Arlington for the airshow last weekend... Stopped by DB's since the last time it was there was on the back of his trailer. Did a little burnout on the way out. Hung out at the airshow, then ran another 30 mins up to Eric's new place to shoot the shit. hour+ back home on the freeway, car did great the whole time.

16 days to go until we close the house deals and the moving truck arrives.
Last seat project left on Sunday morning and I started packing up the garage.
The car will go off to storage this coming weekend so we can start moving all the furniture into the garage for easier loading on moving day.

Excited to get into the new place... ready to be done with packing and waiting though.

This weekend I bent up my transmission cooler lines for the LS Conversion in my '91 Crew Cab. What a PITA! My stock cooler lines did go in, but how they routed alongside the LS engine, I wasn't totally comfortable with. The lines were kind of tight at points along the block and I was worried about them rubbing. I did design a clamp at work and printed it off on our FDM printer. It helped secure the lines to the block, but it still didn't feel right, so I ordered some lengths of straight 5/16" stainless from Inline Tube, bought some 1/8" steel rods from Lowe's and started mocking up my lines. crawling under and back out about a hundred times, snaking the lines in, measuring, marking, snaking the lines back out, making a bend, snaking the lines back in, measuring, marking, snaking the lines back out!!!

I finally got them fully routed. The lines go from my stock '91 radiator, go between the conversion mounts and the block, bend down and go through the stock LS support bracket for the transmission cooler lines, snake around the oil level sensor and starter, and then up to the transmission.

Pretty happy with how they turned-out. Never have I made such complicated bends and so many on one length of tube!

Good progress on the Vintage Air install. All the OEM stuff is out - see my for sale ad if you're interested. New condenser, defroster vents (what a PITA...) and block off plates installed. Evaporator unit assembled and controls upgraded to electric.
