You still have a 14 bolt 3.73 lying around, eh?
I'm hoping the lack of overdrive will mean a bit more jamb. I'm not sure the sweet spot on these engine for rpm, but I think 2400 is a bit high. That being said, I'm sure it wont hurt anything except mpg, hahaMy 6.2 K5 with 4:10 gears and 35 in tires does ok as a daily. It's got a 700R4. It gets to be a dog heading up the mtn to work. I just manually kick it into 3rd when I need to abd it does better. 16 mpg too. Even with new glow plugs it needs to be plugged in below 20ish degrees or a quick shot of ether.
On your list sounds link you have an open sender wire or no ground.
2400 rpm is not a bad cruise range, mine likes @2600 for 70ish mph. Just likes it there.
For reference, I'm about 3200-3500rpm at 70mph and it's fine. Just loud.
