    The engine can run without the transmission but, how are you going to mount the starter? Doesn't it attach to the transmission?

    Ok I am new to this truck and don't know how the starter bolts up. I can assume that it bolts up to the block and not the transmission.

    The starter does bolt to the block not the trans. I would also suggest removing the torque converter. Engines are run all the time for dyno purposes on stnads without anything attached to them. Just remember that it will be more snappy sounding without the trans attached to it.

    BE CAREFUL !!!!! It is fine to crank your engine up with no tranny but without the weight of a torque converter the motor will spin up extremely fast . All will be fine just do not get rev happy and reach valve float faster than you realize .
