    I was into watching this, so I can do an engine swap on my 91 K1500. You left out a lot of information that would have been helpful. You removed the front end wiring harness, all the way to and thru the firewall. However, the show didn't provide any further information about the wiring of an engine swap besides the Holley wiring to the engine, inside the engine compartment. I wanted to know if I missed something? I saw S6, E6, E7 and E8. Can someone let me know of a video(s) that show more wiring detailing?

    As a ford guy, I do like how interchangeable Chevy parts are. I actually converted my 4x4 03 ranger to AWD and swapped a 5.0 V8 into it and only had to make minor modifications to the wiring harness to make it all work. Engine/trans/transfer case bolted right up and I used my stock driveshafts

    c2500 or 6 lug k 2500 obs bolt right in, you have to cut and move spring perches on the nbs axles which is arguably more work than regearing

  45. Joel Goodman

    Joel Goodmanپیش 28 روز

    not really, the ps pump is a pita with the steering shaft in, but otherwise the rest is a cakewalk, alt is right up top, and unless notching the frame for the low mount compressor you're running a higher up ac compressor anyways. water pump is 6 bolts easy to access, and better to leave off until it's in, especially if you're not pulling the rad or condensor

    I rebuilt my 04denali front diff my self 100$ for the brearings and seals. Drove 500 miles I still hear it. Buy rebuilt for 1200 swap in . More noise and same slight amount of metal on drain magnet. Im sure they sent me a 250k rebuild and my 125k is even quieter LOL. Pro tip. you can set the gear lash in that diff without the tool just loosen the two case halfs and do it by hand slowly. LOL. takes a couple trys . Then I removed the adjusters and drilled a hole and left the drill piece in the adjuster so they could never move without disassembly. The fault with these AWD 6.0 engine diffs was the tab would break and the adjusters would back out giving you huge backlash in your diff. Plus the fact its the basically the same as the part time 5.3 diff but running more power all the time now.

    Those thermal actuators are EXCELLENT ESPECIALLY WHEN IT GETS INTO SOME CHILLY OR JUST REGULAR SHADED MUDDT AREAS SHORTLY AFTER A HEAVY ENOUGH RAIN STORM IT DISENGAGES YOUR 4 WHEEL DRIVE ( 2 WHEEL DRIVE) AND MAKES THE OLE TRUCK A 1 WHEEL WONDER :0) IT GETS CONFUSED BY THE SUDDEN " COLD" SIGNAL SHUTTING OFF YOUR 4 WHEEL DRIVE LITERALLY WHEN ITS SUPPOSED TO BE NEEDED MOST! NEVER HAD IT OCCUR IN A HEAVY SNOW BUT IM SURE IT WOULDNT BE a stretch to expect similar results!

    the design is similar, but the mounts are different, the axles are smaller, the overall width is less. so for all the reasons that this works, astro would be a bad idea. also it was made for much less power 4.3 [great engine tho]

    Would love to run this front differential in my 03 S10 blazer that I’m looking to lift instead of going Dana 44s for axles for a SAS swap. I wonder if the NV149 would mate to a NV3500

  76. Joel Goodman

    Joel Goodmanپیش 29 روز

    @AdamW582 right, the 6l80e shares the 32 spline output and 6 bolt pattern with the nv3500/4500 so the awd case from say a 2007 denali bolts right on no modification. Otherwise the same input shaft he swapped to here on the 149 will work fine

  77. AdamW582

    AdamW582پیش 29 روز

    Yeah I get that. I’m not interested in a 6L80e. Prefer to have manual transmission because it’s more fun to drive. I’m not all that interested in lowered AWD vehicles being a 4wd guy.

  78. Joel Goodman

    Joel Goodmanپیش 29 روز

    same issue as that 4l80e, 32 spline output shaft. there are other awd cases that came behind the 6l80e that will bolt right up
