We have a plan to start
Well Raechel is a busy girl between working, school, working as a volunteer at a vets office for her needed service hrs she can only work on the car Sunday and Monday this weekend. So Saturday my brother-in-law is going with me to find parts at a U Pull It salvage yard. (50% off sale) We decided on a 350 with the most up to date 700 transmission we can find.
We are looking for a 90-94 Chevy truck since it will have a throttle body. We are hoping to get
Engine (complete for parts but will rebuild)
Transmission (we will rebuild)
Computer and wiring Harness
Fuel lines, pump and a tank that will work
Any other suggestions on what to look for?
Since this is a U Pull it lot were bringing a trailer with Generator, compressor, saws all, air ratchets, extension cords electric impact Maybe a torch and a ton of other tools.
My brother in law is a ASE Master Technician. I didn't want to get him involved to much because he works an hour away and long hrs, has 2 young children and his wife so free time is far and between. That said he drug him self into this ( Couldn't help himself ).
Sunday and Monday the plan is to pull the front cap, engine and transmission, seats doors etc. so we can lift the cab off the frame. I hope this is not to ambitious but I would like to see what we are dealing with.
What should we do with the original Engine and transmission ? Save it just in case or sell it get money to help with this car and maybe help someone get a motor for a full restore ? Is there a value for it and how much ?
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
