    my dads friend bought a 82 2wd burb that had no engine(but came with a 6.2 originally). he just wanted the front clip,hood,doors,rear seat,and carpet. today me and a guy he knew took that thing apart. got all the parts he wants off. the rest of it is ours. which got me to thinking.. hey i could use some of this stuff! well not much of it. but the rest i could at least make money off of. main things i wanted to look at were the 2wd steering box, dual exhaust(looks very similar to a small block i have my fingers crossed:dunno: ), the a/c stuff, sound deadening, and anything yall think of! and i was thinking that i might get some good scap metal money from the 5 lug 10 bolt!:D i just want to use the dual exhaust,well only the pipes that bolt up to the manifolds, i havent checked but it looks like it might fit???and if it does..:bow: ... i wont have to buy headers when i lift my truck!!!!!!!!!!!!(again), then i want to try and get my a/c working with a combo of parts from the two. and put the sound deadening stuff in... the dash cap is in very good shape only a few cracks, but i think my brother wants that. i already took the steering column and redid it.(put it in the blazer)...

    so if there are any other parts yall think i should look at before we roll this one out to pasture speak up! well ill still be able to get parts for a while but it would be easier right now. as its right behind our barn where all the tools are.

    ** if anyone knows if the exhaust might bolt up to the manifolds on a sbc let me know.. the angles are the same but i havent taken my exhaust off to see yet.:thinking: **

    ok well i guess thats a long enough post. so anyone that wants to. speak up
    thanks -sam-

    exhaust works...

    I've been told the exhaust will fit,but may need "tweaking",by a few of my friends that put 350's in blown up 6.2 trucks..I think the flanges on the pipes might be different,I'm not sure...but the pipes line up with gas manifolds...:crazy:

    I once took dual exhaust from a 6.2L van and installed it on my '91 crew w/350tbi and ram's horn manifolds. Driver side fit like a glove. Passenger side fit the manifold, but had to be reworked considerably to clear the front axle.

    is the hydroboost system still intact? that could be desirable.

    sorry but the mounts are gone.
    i was wondering... what is the transmission that was most likely put in this... its an automatic. but i have no other info (overdrive, stock tranny?, etc..) because from what i heard the engine blew up so they took it out and parked it. the tranny may be good so it would be nice to know what kind it is.

    dash...

    Look at the dash if its still there--if it says "P-R-N-D-L" its probably a TH400--it has a modulator sticking out of the case near the bellhousing on the passenger side..a 700R4 will have a circle around the "D" in drive on the indicator...not sure if TH350's were ever put behind a 6.2,they will have the modulator in back,near the driveshaft--a 700R4 has none..:crazy:

    the mounts are the same between the 6.2 and 350. some years were bigger, but the engines will interchange onto the mounts no problem. the exhaust will bolt right up, but if its from a 2wd, you might have to clearance something. I bolted a 350 right in my 84 when i robbed the 6.2 for my crewcab.
