    With the help of a couple good friends got my tired 307 pulled last night. I've put a few pics in an album named Pulling 307 at Picture page

    Thankfully, I'm only saving the Rockwell T-221 transfer case. A bath is in order I think!

    Here' what's going in. It's a poser pic, the goodies aren't installed yet.

    Do ya think the 454 will have a little more grunt than the 307?

    Looks good. I think you might notice a slight power difference between the two. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Oh, you might want to resize your pics to something smaller...I'm running off a T3 line, and it took about 5 minutes for them to load.

    Looks great. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif I just set a 454 in my '72 last Sunday. Even though it's kind of like duct taping a hand grenade to the rest of my drive train, but I'm still excited. Mines not that purdy though.

    Congrats Yukon, I bet you can't wait to feel the power of the 454. It's gonna make that 307 look really weak. Good luck with the rest of the swap. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I bought a wrecked 89 1 ton with this motor in it for $800.00. The go fast goodies have taken the price tag up quite a bit, but the engine its self was pretty cheap for a running engine.

    Reddog64 - your PM must not be working, oh well /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    The headers are Dynomax Cermacoated for the 73-up. Just hoping I will get lucky and have just little, fixable, fitment issues.

    I'm also kinda looking to see if I can locate a 73-87 engine crossmember and towers as I hear that makes header fitment easier. I assume that at the towers for the 73-87 differ depending on whether it is a big block or small block. Don't know yet.

    The guys who helped me pull the front clip have me talked into going ahead and pulling the cab as it will make reinstall so much easier and the cab is already unbolted. Now they are trying to talk me into having the rust area's fixed now, does kinda make sense since it is all apart. Where's that darn $$$$$ tree?
