    At age 42, I had my construction company. Did energy efficiency upgrades to houses - triple pane windows, energy efficient doors, built custom decks and 3&4 season rooms, general remodeling work, basement finishes, fences, concrete flat work. I was a working boss with my own crew and two leads...

    Yup, 1st Semester of my Junior year at University of Nebraska - Lincoln! I graduated High School at 17 (could have graduated at 16 end of my Junior year, but didn't want to start college at that age) in 1979 and Enlisted in the Nebraska National Guard March of 79 while I was still a High School...

    BRAVO! The hard part in now over! Now tomorrow to finish up with all the details! Your tale reminds me of back when I was in college in '82. My next door neighbor had to swap out the blown TH350 in his 70 Impala 4dr family hauler and go to work vehicle. It was late December and we were working...

    506 BLOCK WORTH ANYTHING?

    And I'm willing to bet there's a lot more clearance with the 6.0 oil pan to the converter cover than there is with the 6.5's, which is one of the reasons the used a cast aluminum. I bet the 6.0 doesn't use the braces (one on each side) that the 5.0 and 5.7 gassers use with the 4L80E in the...

    Actually, it looked like it bolted to a boss on the side of the transmission, not with one of the cover bolts. Let me go get a shot off of the 4x4 4L80E I have sitting on the ground. Just looked. Nope, you're right, it bolts to the lower shield hole. Things look wacky scrunched under a vehicle...

    Don't confuse the brace with the torsion bar or the transmission dipstick tube in some of the photos. It runs between the starter and oil pan.

    Well, I can see it from the top side, but I can't reach in there to get a shot. Cold front is moving in and it's starting to sprinkle cold rain and the engine compartment is filthy, soooo, no pics with the phone. BUT, the 98 K2500 Burb's a whole different story!As you can see from the series...

    Top shot is looking up at the converter cover and oil pan. The bolt hanging down is a starter bolt from when I had to pull my recently rebuilt by a local auto electric shop starter and put it on my Burb when the Burb's crapped out the day the big snowstorm was moving in that night! The cover is...

    Ok, here's a couple of shots from the passenger side from as far under as I could scoot my 60 year old, a lot fatter than I was 20 years ago body, and reaching as far as I could with my right arm to the driver side of the engine from behind the passenger tire. First shot is from Passenger side...

    The closest I can come is my '94. Getting a photo would take some doing, as it's sitting in my driveway with about 15 years worth of stuff shoved under it (like the old exhaust system off it and the Burb, for starters) to stay directly out of the elements. I'll see if I can get a shot.

    Me? I'm using the almost 60 year old Snap-On ½" drive torque to click torque wrench my late dad used on the sprint car back in the 60's when I was just a pup helping out. He gave it to me about 35 years ago when I was R&Ring and rebuilding Subaru engines. Still holds dead balls-on calibration...

    Sounds like somebody had either the engine or tranny out of that one and either forgot/couldn't find your brace and cover, @dbrannon79!

    I revised that post. I was going out of the 6.5 engine section. I went to the 4L80E section and it had 49 lb/ft for flexplate to converter bolts with transmission on engine.

    Oh and the transmission to engine brace bolts (on the right side only on diesel) 51 lb/ft

    Unbelievable Real Barn Find!

    How about a 1979 'Smokey and the Bandit Edition' TransAm with 35 certified miles on the odometer and all the factory/dealership stickers in the window!?!? Found in a barn in Michigan, along with a '70 Chevelle and a '46 Willys! The TransAm now resides in Lincoln, NE at Restore a Muscle Car...
