    Completed the Swap!
    Had a few issues during the swap, Had to cut a good piece of the front of the trans tunnel.

    All is left is to lengthen, add yoke, and new U Joints for the drive shaft.
    After that I need to install hydro master and slave and wire up the starter.

    Engine Plate, fly wheel, starter, clutch!

    And to top it off, added some new carpet to cover the tunnel and new shifter boot. (will order LMC Carpet set eventually.

    Well Started the truck for the first time 2 weeks ago. Took it for its maiden voyage, found that 3rd gear doesn't stay in and 4th doesn't work at all, After pulling the trans back out, I opened the top casing to see what was going on, Found that the 4th gear syncro is missing all the teeth. So handed it over to have it rebuilt. Hopefully will be back soon!
