Not Corvette related but, doing a LS swap in my 1966 C10. Having lots of fun in the garage on this one 😁!! I am building a 5.3L from scratch, and learning lots, as I never did a complete rebuild.

I never had one of those apart, man the mains are really bolted in there. I love chevy engine orange , wish GM didn't quit selling it in the spray bomb, it was the best . The stepside looks decent shape, chrome bumper too, wow. Nice job.

Some VERY COOL parts cam in today 😁. Going to be running a Holley intake and fuel rails, small block Chevy valve covers adapters, and 5.3L throttle body turned upside down on adapters to intake, with a old style air cleaner. Going to mount the coils in the back to look like a distributor. All fuel injection, drive by wire throttle body, electronic cruise control, etc. So much fun !!!

Of course everything painted Chevrolet Orange !!!! 👍

Still looking for Small Block Chevy valve covers & Air Cleaner..... if anyone has anything?

nice ! , what would look cool is if you put on the 348 / 409 covers and make it look like the W - block , I believe there are adapters to put those covers on overtop.

Amazon delivers on Sundays !
What a world we live in 👍. Some Compcams springs for the 5.3L, to go with the bigger camshaft. Swap the springs, mount the heads and intake, then time for more Chevrolet Orange!!
