    Just used windows movie maker and the pictures I had; and a couple video clips from the new camera. I have a bunch of video of how that motor ran and sounded in the Truck Blazer and my GMC, but it's all on VHS and I don't know how to transfer it to the computer yet.

    I'm kind of amazed looking back at that one motor how good it still runs having been run hard and swapped into and out of so many vehicles. Only thing that went wrong with it recently was a bad pushrod end. Chuck swapped a different cam into it, but the old cam wasn't bad. Other than that, not a thing has been touched internally in that motor since it was put into that '77 Crew Cab many years and 80,000+ miles ago.
