technically it's a build

Well, it is a build, I just could not do it myself. We all pay for it one way or the other.

So, here's my '77 SJ. https://postimg.cc/gallery/4xktd7r











Had it now for 15 years, doing odds and ends to it and just nursing it along. Never figured the motor would last this long. Finally the 401 gave up last fall. Had a local small shop build the the motor (had to replace the block too). AAMCO rebuilt the transmission plus a new torque converter. Neither of them wanted to work on the Quadratrac, they just put new seals on the ends and fresh TCL-1.

used 401 block .030 over
Wiseco Pro Tru Street Piston kit
COMP Cams High Energy Cam and Lifter Kit 260H
dynamic balanced
Edelbrock Performer 3731 w/bolt kit
Quick Fuel Slayer 600
ARP connecting rod and carb studs
almost everything else new
new stock type muffler

That's awesome! With that combo, you should consider headers, next. They really make a big difference letting your engine breath.

You have a good lookin truck! Is your QT still full time?

Thanks, I'm impressed with how it turned out. Seems like plenty of power. You're probably right about the headers, but I don't think I'll be changing them. I'm OK with the stealth of the stock like system/sound. Yes, the QT and 3.54 axels are still stock. Just wanted a fresh engine with more torque/guts. But it does like to go fast.

I saw the video of the driveshaft mishap, how did you break an axle?

I think it was 40 years of neglect from the previous owner. Just a broken spider gear. If I wasn't traveling over the next few months, it would probably be fixed by now.
