All it took was removing the 6.2 oil pan. And the a/c box from the car's firewall. And the 6.2 starter, of course, to even get the 6.2 out of the pickup.
I used Moroso solid motor mounts for putting gasoline-fueled Chevrolet V8s in '82-'92 Camaros / Firebirds.
I tried this once before, and got nowhere close.
This time, I had to do a bit of bashing, hammer on firewall, and I had to bend one of the studs at the top exit of the right exhaust manifold, since it wouldn't unscrew with vise-grips.
But it is bolted in, correctly, so I can see that the rod nuts are never less than 3/4" above the cross-member.
Tomorrow I'll check starter fitment.
'06 GMC C2500HD RCLB gasser 4.10:1, 4L80E, custom camshaft
'84 Trans Am 6.2 diesel, 700R-4, custom Class-3 receiver
'69 F350 dually. GM 6.2 diesel, turbo, 700R-4, NP208 all pending.
Not wanting to do massive mods to the 6.2 pan, I thought of splicing it to a known-fitting pan of similar size.
First I placed it on my work table, block-side down, and did the same with a SBC 350 pan. Not even close. I tried again with a BBC pan. VERY close!
So I got a tape measure. Width: BBC = 8.5", 6.2 = 8.7"
Looks like I'll order a new plain pan for a '72 Camaro SS402, then cut the rails off it, cut the sump off the 6.2 pan, and drop the BBC sump inside the 6.2 rails.
This will be at least a full week from now, but will happen this month. And I will post pics.
Just finished putting a new Curt class 1 hitch on my mom's car, plus a 4-wire.
About to cut the oil pans, been frustrated all week.
Next week was supposed to be ordering the rear springs, but I'm less sure about dually wheels fitting in there. Right now I'm debating ordering one new dually wheel for test fitting.
I'm unhappy how this project got slowed down, I still want to get it to the show on July 7. Looks like I won't install the cage in time.
