Great video Eric! Can't wait to see the truck finally driving!!! Keep it up!September 14, 2019 at 11:19 am #79993ridge runner
you will be pulling the engine back out to change out that chrome oil panSeptember 14, 2019 at 11:19 am #79994thehappyTexan
Why do engine stands not fit between the legs of engine hoists? That was an epic brain fart!September 14, 2019 at 11:19 am #79995JakexRain
So that transmission, is it a 700r4 case with 4l60e parts in it? Cause i thought only the 700r4 had a one piece design with removable tail end.September 14, 2019 at 11:19 am #79996MrTurtlekid434
interesting fact: the K on the trans bellhousing means it was originally a 4×4 transmissionSeptember 14, 2019 at 11:19 am #79997keshmo12
Maybe was in the video but why did you go with a carburetor? I get it's not a "performance" truck but if you're spending the money on rebuilding everything I would have spent another $600 on an EFI carb and get it running perfect no matter where you go.September 14, 2019 at 11:19 am #79998Stainless Slayer
Now I'm freaked out. Instructions in my arp kit said their fastener lube and 80 lb ft. No mention of loctite. Same application. 1 pc rear main?September 14, 2019 at 11:19 am #79999yambo59
Nothing like installing fresh, clean new parts into a clean engine bay, SO much more enjoyable than not – even if ya just do a quick degrease and washdown and black spray paint, huge difference.September 14, 2019 at 11:19 am #80000yambo59
I also learned the hard way many years ago, when its THAT much trouble to have to go back and redo something, never take shortcuts follow instructions to the letter, its a lot less hassle now than with everything together and in the vehicle. Its easy to get impatient to see it all come together and run but its a dead dog bummer to have to install and remove an engine twice for such an easy task — ask me how I know—lolSeptember 14, 2019 at 11:19 am #80001Aaron Wood

I dont see a issue with the torque stick because you arent torquing a bearing cap or anything lolSeptember 14, 2019 at 11:19 am #80005Trent Robey
Looks like a 4l80e. …..pops gonna have a sharp lil racey truck!!!September 14, 2019 at 11:19 am #80006Ceasar Vasquez
That torque converter paint is just unnecessary gunk in the filterSeptember 14, 2019 at 11:19 am #80007Nick W.
Looking good Eric. All nice an shiny.September 14, 2019 at 11:19 am #80008Sean C.
Panicked when I saw the engine + trans start to roll D:September 14, 2019 at 11:19 am #80009Carmine Riganti
I know it's a little too late but did you ever think of using an engine leveler on your hoist ?September 14, 2019 at 11:19 am #80010Sam Denluck
Great video series with good information. Good that you leave mistakes and mention them. Same type of errors happen to any intermediate wrench head.September 14, 2019 at 11:19 am #80011J-Rose Gaming

Looks great!September 14, 2019 at 11:19 am #80015Kramersklassykustoms
I still cant believe people are dumb enough to use those 4 tiny studs on the intake to lift an engine and trans.September 14, 2019 at 11:19 am #80016Vin DamascousSeptember 14, 2019 at 11:19 am #80017ComicalCowboy1911
Nice job my man! I remember how "fun" my engine/trans installation was back when I built a motor for my Charger. Like you, I did the installation all by myself, only I had small jack stands, and an uneven driveway which kept resulting in my hoist getting caught in the cracks (Oh yeah it was fun). After I dropped the engine home, I installed the trans by crawling underneath and using my body as a transmission jack LOL! Wish I had more tools, that's for sure. But I got er done! That feeling after you drop a fresh engine into your vehicle is like none other! And the level of anxiety when ya crank it for the first time is always pretty thrilling too lol! Can't wait to hear the truck fire up! =]September 14, 2019 at 11:19 am #80018Michael Dunn
Nasty looking beard anymore. The cleaner old look was way better.September 14, 2019 at 11:19 am #80019ReyReyDewit
What's an acceptable gap between flex plate and converter mounting point. Trying to figure if I will need spacers or let the converter pull forward. I know it should not pull forward too much though.

Did I miss you bolting the torque converter to the flex plate? My eyes were heavy, so I might have had a quick power nap. Everything is so sanitary, so clean. Nice job, nice calm narrative.September 14, 2019 at 11:19 am #80021Stacy Dornan
Awesome job Eric,Pops is gonna want his truck back when your doneSeptember 14, 2019 at 11:19 am #80022MIKE MOTORCITY OG

How is that Monster Transmission? I was looking at one but the reviews they have are pretty bad it scared me.September 14, 2019 at 11:19 am #80025Molly Penderson
When will we HEAR THAT ENGINE RUN! THIS IS FRAUD AND A SCAM!September 14, 2019 at 11:19 am #80026jon doe
I had the same thing happen. Rebuilt an engine only to have a “tap” when reassembled. Come to find out it was the bolts that backed out on me on the plate.September 14, 2019 at 11:19 am #80027Eric Wolf
Love the Muttly laugh at 2:15.September 14, 2019 at 11:19 am #80028Tim Ramich
That engine bay looks like it could use a Chevy big block.
