    Well, It was good to meet you all this morning!!!! Needless to say I feel a little underdeveloped on the build up of the trucks, but I think it's going to be a fun new experience to get my truck trail worthy!!!!!!! /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif

    Yeah... I lifted a 350 block on a stand into the back of my truck. that's heavy!

    My friend eric got under my truck and benchpressed my 205 up onto the back of my TH350 and got it lined up while i got the bolts started.

    Well, I will not try and outdo anyone here, a 465 203 combo is way too much more than I would try, but I did manage to lift the 203 into position and start the bolts by myself, once and that was with no jack.
    After that I tried a couple of times, and I couldn't. I guess I used up all my reserve power.

    Now I did a couple of 205 and 208 no problem. And a couple of Auto trannys too.
    but this 203... /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    Ok that 465/203 was probably more than I should have tried....don't think I'll be doing that again. Anyway Joe has it now!!!!!Besides I didn't get it in the truck by myself Joe.. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
