    Re: so what\'s next.

    Picking up a 83 C30 parts rig so I can complete my 6.2 swap. New T-case adaptor, new bell, install D60, install anti wrap bar from A-tron and rear disc's.

    Yes my truck is in pieces at the moment...but it should be back on (or off) the road before X-mas.

    Re: so what\'s next.

    Borrego, SOMEWHERE I have a computer print out (I scanned it too) that I got off a Genisis measuring system. If that will help you Ill try to find it and fax or Email it to you. I know I have it on my computer, but the original may be gone. PMme if you think you can use it. I think I got it for 80s K5s.
