650cfm edelbrock performer carb
edelbrock intake (not sure exactly what, didn't say something like
"PERFORMER" on it)
TH400 (I think) - looks allot like a TH700R4 too me but that wasn't an
option during this year. Haven't really examined the tranny, but it's got a
square oil pan with the rear most passenger side corner "cut off" at an
angle. The entire rear of the pan is angled ... (I know very technical)
NP203 (only t-case offered w/ autos that year)
D44 front and 12 bolt rear - don't know what ratio or if anything has any
kind of locker....
ORD rear shackle flip, 2.5" I believe. Greaseable shackle bolts...
The body is a joke - mid resto and it has rot in places they don't make
repair parts for! I honestly have no idea why they were thinking of fixing
up this tub. The frame is nice though, very low rust for any frame, and
especially for having this body on it.
It came with piles of rot repair parts and that type of thing, new lenses
and all sorts of parts.... last count $2,000 (new). This is why I bought the
I'm pretty happy with it :-)
Now can anyone think why when I emptied the oil - it was thin as water with
gasoline? My thought is the fact it was parked for a long time on about a 30
degree angle, quite quite steep. I drained the oil, took off the K&N oil
filter (interestingly it was a paper air filter), let all the gas out.
Marked the wires/dizzy and pulled all the wires. Pulled off the billet
aluminum valve covers to take a peek. Squirted some oil into the cylinders
and turned it over a few times by hand. Trying do decide if I should just
hook up some juice tomorrow and try to start it, or if I should take off the
dizzy and run the oil pump with a drill??? I need to check the tranny fluid
too.... NP203 - hypoid or dextron?
