    Cleaned up the motor last night and got the axle on the frame before mocking up the motor. There was a ton of grease and nasty on that thing, but it looks great now. Still have to clean up the water pump and wiring harness, but that can happen anytime. The motor mounts and H3 oil pan fit great and gave plenty of adjustability and clearance. With the motor in the frame, though, it became quite obvious why nobody has used the Truck manifolds before. The driver side dumps right into the frame and they aren't as close to the block as the LS1 camaro manifolds. It is also nearly into the control arm. Passenger side fits great though. :? I also mocked up the LS1 driver manifold. It is even more into the control arm, but if the flange is extended down ward it would clear fine. May do some more brainstorming, but that is my current direction.

    Head shot... Cathedral ports are supposed to be good. These are 862 heads for future reference.



    Frame on the wheels at about ride height.





    H3 windage tray and oil pickup tube. Windage tray looks to be the same as the truck, but the pickup is shorter.



    Clean motor ready to drop in.

    Driver side on the JS1blazer has the flange cut off and exhaust pipe extending down and making the turn into the exhaust system tubing. Helps clearance issues a lot and removes a leak potential.

    That's the plan although there is doubt in the garage how doable it is. Doesn't have to happen right away, so I have time to research and decide. Probably do both sides to make the y pipe easier to get on and off. Next week will either be spent playing with the T56 or fabbing up a frame jig I believe.

    You wouldn't happen to have any pictures for reference? There aren't very many on S10 Forum.

    Found an awesome craigslist deal on a big steel table and it is now holding the frame in the barn. 120" x 70" with a 1/4" top, but for $200 I'll work with the thinner plate. It is built with thick wall 3x3 tube and has lots of supports. Should make this and any future frame project I come up with easier.

    Enjoy.











    And some before and after pictures of cleaning the motor I missed uploading last time.

    looks like a fun project jason. what all do you have planned for the motor?

    how hard/expensive was that H3 pan to get ahold of?

    Sometime within the next year or so I'm supposed to be building some long tubes for a buddy. If it is even possible lol

    For now the motor will be run as is. The owner of the barn keeps talking about how well a turbo would fit in my empty engine bay and make the motor have some extra fun... we'll see haha My ultimate goal is to boost an aluminum block to about 600 hp. I've got a softer spot for superchargers than turbos, but the efficiency of turbos may win out in the end. The 5.3 is a place holder for the next couple years.

    I ordered the H3 pan directly from the dealer. I believe the kit is about $150 retail and took a couple weeks to show up. Part number is 19212593.
