Been too busy and sick to post much lately. Doesn't mean progress has stalled.In fact, I have started rebuilding the dash pad with 3M Flexable epoxy.

I picked up the repaired head, mounted it and when trying to install the intake manifold found that the threads in the head for the intake manifold were gone. Not stripped, just rusted off. So a helicoil repair doen to 3 holes in the Rockauto head and one in my rebuilut head When i got that all done i reinstalled the manifold but Didnt get the bolts to 50 # of torque. Every tightened something knowing that one more fraction of a trun was going to strip a thread? Well i got 40+ of torque but stopped at that point.

A couple of days ago I used the shop crane to put the tranny and TC onto my moveable workbench. Many hours of spray cleaner and it was as clean as i was going to get it.

This morning I chopped the handle off a 8" screwdriver, slid a piece of fuel line over the end and chucked it into my drill. I used that to go into the distributor hole. I slid the fuel line piece down over the oil pump shaft to hold the blade in the slot and primed the engine. Reminder to self--put the pressure sensor into the block before doing this.

I then hooked up the shop crane and pulled the engine off the engine stand and moved the engine next to the workbench. From there it was simple to align the engine and tranny. Sorry no pictures of that--I was busy.


Then I moved everything into place and stuffed that bad boy combo back into truck. Tomorrow I should be able to get all the stuff mounted and secured.

Things are moving along. Not nearly as fast as I'd like but still forward.

Rebuilding the entire steering column and part of that was fixing the cracks in the wheel then repainting.




I have the engine in the frame after pulling the cab back off for ease of access. I have new transmission mounts and torque arm stud with bushings. Don't have pictures of this mess when I pulled it apart. One of those hell I can remember this--but almost 3 years later I don't remember.




.





See what I mean?



This is what I mean by making progress.

For some reason I can't post a reply from my computer and even though I have done nothing to change the size of my pictures they are huge when posted.

I am seeing some very strange glitches all over. On this site, other sites, and how my computer saves photos. Weird. Try, try again...

Ok I have looked at this mess for more time than should be necessary.
The torque arm mount was all messed up on this truck when I got it and what was there made no sense what so ever. Does anyone have a picture of a correctly mounted arm??
Parts manual and FSM are of no help!

I am trying to post a couple pictures for you. Two issues... My camera is dying and everything is colored with a very purple hue. Second is photobucket is not working tonight. I will try again tomorrow morning.
BTW, your trans adapter looks severely worn on one side. The foot on the bottom. On the passenger side. You might have to put a couple fender washers under it.

You should have an aluminum bar between the trans adapter and the poly or rubber mount. It is about 8-9 inches long. I will try to post up tomorrow unless someone else beats me to it.

Thanks Al. The wear on the foot is actually just camera angle.

My camera is definitely on its way out. Here are a couple shots. The end view has the thicker edge facing the front. That is the aluminum bar I mentioned.

From the front looking back.



End view.



I looked through 40 pages of my build thread and realized just going out to take a picture was way faster....

Al is that a homemade bar? I don't remember what came out of there having a bevel to it. But then I don't remember much since it was about 3 years ago and it was junk.

That is a factory piece. There should be one under every TH400.
When they get loose they wear badly from movement. I fixed one by using panel adhesive under a stainless plate. Made it flat again and sturdy with the stainless.

Al here is a picture of a TH 400 mount and is identical to the ones BJs sell. I am really confused. Not hard to have happen but frustrating.

Thanks Randy. positive input helps!!
Now the problem for today
I blew the posi in my LJ running a Chevy 6.0 liter and a6L90 tranny.


It just couldn't take the power of the engine anymore. Pulled on to the highway headed back to camp and "slightly" got on it to merge into traffic. Well that didn't go so well and now I have an ARB in the back. Seems to work well or at least as well as I can tell.

Now the problem. I am throwing three codes: P0700, P0182E and 1915. All are related to the transmission.

While I was waiting for the ARB to get here I shortened a couple of wiring harnesses. I have gone back several times and checked the wiring to make sure everything was where it is supposed to be but no luck finding the problem.

Anyone out there got any suggestions?
