    ...... but, I need your help! /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    I need to sell the '82 K30 and the '84 M1008 to buy this motor.

    My 454 in the '85 is getting weaker and weaker every time I drive it. The lifters are clattering and the motor runs like its missing real badly.

    Yes, I have already tuned it up and replaced old for new parts.
    The motor probably needs new lifters, and/or camshaft.

    I don't want to take the time to fix this 454 since its already got the mileage on it now. Just want to pull it and store it for a future rebuild for something else. This motor has a forged steel crank in it, so I want to save it. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    The whole idea with a new crate 454 would simply be the fact that its BRAND NEW. New 4 bolt main block, new forged crank, good cam that produces good power and torque.

    Just the price for it is the bad part. /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    But if the 2 trucks can go, the motor comes in. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    Anybody interested in the 2 trucks? PM me for details and prices. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    Price: $4,599.80
    Part # 12568774
    Horsepower: 425 hp @ 5250 rpm
    Torque: 500 ft/lbs @ 3,250

    VS:

    Price: $8,825.80
    Part # 12497323
    Horsepower: 510 @ 5500 RPM
    Torque: 550 @ 4500 RPM

    For $4225 more (92% increase) you get 85 more HP (20% increase). And the RPM range is so high for the peak #'s on the 502 it would be hard to use in a truck I think. The 3250 RPM peak torque on the 454 looks better to me.

    <font color="green"> Well, since you mentioned it. I wouldn't want that engine for my truck, it would be for another future project, my dream rail. Mid engine V8 sandrail, full drag race short powerglide to an Corvette IRS rearend. Most of the weight would be the engine. 550HP in a sandrail that would weigh maybe 1500lbs... Fun stuff!</font color>

    I prefer the 454 HO anyways for a truck that gets driven more than something that has the 502 RJ. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif
