    Did it bolt right up to the stock engine mounts? Anything special have to be done?

    Hey, looks great! I've got a 402 BBC in my other '80 K10 that some previous owner swapped in. I removed it this summer, and I'm thinking about rebuilding it and putting the 402 in my daily driver (another '80 K10 titled as '74) to replace the no compression, oil leaking/burning environmental hazard, no power 305 currently in there. My 305 is so worn out, even changing the gears from 3.42 to 4.10 was not real noticeable, except on the highway!

    Blazer79- At the time of the picture the flexplate was sittin on the work table in the shop. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif lol, I noticed it about 5 minutes after I took the pics......Engine was about halfway lowered into the truck. So no big deal. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    85Mouse- Everything bolted up just like a glove. Used the same motor mounts from the small block. The only "custom" work I had to do, was figure out a way to mount the 4 core radiator and shroud from the '82 donor truck. Just had to drill four holes and that was it. Everything else went smoothly. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif Exact same thing happened to me, that's why I asked. I started to lower my 454 (with the help of my g/f!!) when I realized there was no flexplate /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif

    Worst part is I couldn't find all the bolts at the moment, so I "borrowed" a few from my ex-350, which is now my brother's property.

    I've got two real issues to work out before it runs perfect. Went to set timing today, and found I have the distriutor off one tooth. Gonna fix that tommorrow. Also, the q-jet from my old SB does not run right on the BB. Totally craps out about 3500 RPM's, Sometimes it'll hit 4500-5000, but it falls flat on it's face eventually. Anyone got any suggestions about what carb would work well on this motor? I assume I should try to find one from a BB? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    I'm running an Edelbrock Q-jet #1902. Rated 750cfm runs great.

    You mean you've revved the big block past 4000rpm? /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif I've never done that.

    This motor seems to like to rev past 4000...Full roller aluminum rockers, forged pistons, balanced crank. It's a '71 402 BB. Out of a K20 I believe. I've got dual Flowmaster 40 series delta flows- It sounds BAD ASS. Music to my ears. /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif
    As far as the carb.....That 1902 is definatley the one I want....I just don't have the almost $400 for one. That'd be my "dream" carb. Either the 1902 or the Jet Stage 2 Q-jet. /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif
