I used it to pull the new to me shed/coop off the trailer. Didn't think a 6x6 shed was so heavy!

A while back I put on a new door bumper on passenger side after seeing that it was missing. I remember someone on here posting about what they found from The Truck Shop and I was excited that there was a shop on the East coast and the West coast, so I ordered the free catalogue and got door bumpers from there and a T-shirt to make it worth my while. Door bumpers arrived and I installed on the PS and I think I posted how it isn’t exactly like the DS. Anyway the T shirt was on back order! I thought I may not ever see it,

I jazzed up the interior. If you look carefully you'll see ham radios, rear view mirror with compass and thermometer as well as billet trim for the doors and dash.

I looked up Chevy 377 and found a cool article about the aluminum chevy v8 that wasn't so great. What is a 377, a 350 bored 0.020 over?

EDIT: 377 = 400 block with 350 crank. Supposed to be a high revving engine

Finally putting the box back on. I had it off during the winter to clean up the frame. Decided to put a new trailer hitch on while I was at it.

Youngun has hers up for sale. And between me and y'all, she has her damned head in the clouds thinking that it's worth $15K.

No it's the coil that came with the Pertronix ignition box and an MSD cap for an external coil on an HEI distributor. The ignition box is mounted inside spaced off the heater box. Tried to hide all that best I could without drilling any new holes in the firewall.

Blueprint lists it as a 383 but the paperwork they sent says it's actually 4" bore (new block) and 3.75 stroke=376.9. Close enough lol
@Rustisbest Your truck is beautiful Matt!
Thanks! The body is full of rust in all the normal squarebody areas. I just can't bring myself to do any bodywork on it, I'm more of a rust/patina kind of guy.

added a quart of Rotella 15w-40 to the rebuilt LS after ~1,000 miles. Worry is....where did it go. No leaks so it must be burning it.

Only had it up to ~4k RPM's....surely the rings are seated by now.

Do you have the PCV hooked up? Do you have the updated valve cover on it? I ended up 3.5qts low not long ago because of the PCV system

I have it hooked up with a catch can. I either have the 2nd or 3rd version of the valve covers. I'm going to get a better catch can, this one is one of the $25 models lol.
