So after months of research and purchasing parts i'm finally digging in. I first got the motor a few years back from a Case IH agriculture sprayer that i bought and stripped after it had been hit by a train. The sprayer flew 90 feet and amazingly the motor was fine, except for the oil pan, pickup tube, and injector lines. I've been wanting to drop the motor into something for a long time. I finally bought a 6" lifted 84 crew cab chevy with the frame already shortened rust free box cab and 1990 suburban power doors and front clip and 468 big block. But i ran into a big problem.. The vin tag for the dash got lost because a new surburban dash was swapped in and the old one was cut out and, well, it disappeared... Then lucky for me a different guy in town was selling his 89 crew cab chevy with 45k original miles that he bought from the Arizona swat force. He removed the bombproof swat center room whatever you wanna call it and installed a flatbed. What's great is it's never seen salt so it's in fantastic condition, inside and out. I sold the bed for $2000 and the engine for $1500 so i don't have much invested in it. Anyway i'm pretty new to these forums so bear with me as i try to get my pics uploaded and more details will come soon.

I like it I got my 84 crew cab swap done about 3 months ago except for some small things that I need to get finished up. It still has to go thru body and paint it is a New Mexico Truck so no Rust it needs a few dents fixed. I left my motor pretty well stock though this is my daily driver good luck on your build.

2 cylinders had rain water in them, i bored the motor 40 over. Everything had to be changed to work in this swap, and it is a 2001 model.
