View Full Version : Well, it is in.. :)

After a few nights of painting and a couple of days of bolting in. My new motor (Nascar Mark's old motor) is in and running. Took a little bit to get it started due to truck sitting for 2 months in MINUS zero tempuratures and causing the Fuel line to freeze. But once that was thawed out, it fired right up and it just runs SUPER. ;D ;D<br><br>I haven't even adjusted anything just yet and the Tranny is shifting ok, idles right down to 750 - 775 rpm, plenty of power (even in 4wd, 800 lbs in back bed, plow on). Much more power then my other motor during the summer in 2wd and NO weight. I may need to adjust Tranny as I would like it to shift a little harder into 3rd. I also need to adjust the TPS to shift into OD a little sooner. But otherwise, this truck ROCKS now and a big THANK YOU to Mark. <br><br>

Nice... now when Terry is ready to trade in that crewcab....

sharp lookin motor!!what does the truck look like?

Not as pretty as it use to be. 2 months sitting really ate away at some soft spots. I figured I would just replace complete back bed and cab at some point in it's life.

Here is another angle.

Got to have the proper identification for those Ferd and Chebby boys.

Looks good Nutty! Did the Wildman have the engine painted before you bought it or did you do it before the install?

Mark had the typical BLACK for paint. It looked original from factory. I know that Black helps get rid of the heat but since I only use this as a daily driver (no towing, hauling, loading), I figured a different color wouldn't hurt. Makes it stand out a little bit more under the hood. Now it is time to re-detail the motor since I usually end up nicking it here and a little there while trying to get it in it's place. Need to do some more wiring detail also. Clean up under the hood a lot by re-wiring certain components. Just makes everything look cleaner. Previous owner just put anything anywhere, very cluttered.

man that's a nice picture location too!

Hey, I'm looking for a good picture of an engine to feature on a tee shirt. Can I use the passenger side pic for a shirt? Do you have any other shots that would look good on a tee shirt? I might be able to arrange a free tee shirt for you for permission to use a good pic.

GREAT looking engine and the truck's not bad too!<br>Terry

Hey Scott,<br>That looks familiar. ;D Little cleaner than when I sent it to you. Glad to hear everything went OK. <br>Boy what a difference when I put the stock shop engine in my truck when I pulled the motor for you. It felt so weird to drive my truck with stock everything. [yuk] Not that I'm complaining because Piers bought the shop engine just incase and as it turned out we had to use it while waiting on my new engine coming together. Can't thank him enough for having the forsight to look out for me. <br>I now have the shop engine running like my old engine did. Piers let me put some POD's in and I played with the pump some and it rocks like old. Man was it nice to have power again. ;)

;D Yes, the power makes the difference ;D <br><br>Now, in talking with Bill. Looks like I will be going to MA. to pay a visit to Scott at MassDiesel to upgrade my DTT Tranny to what you had done to your tranny. Though truck is running great, I feel that it could run better. Always good to have the proper person recalibrate tranny since this is putting out much more power. Then we will be HOOKED up for good. ;D ;D

:) :) "....Though truck is running great, I feel that it could run better....." :)<br>Yup, it looks like your pretty much infected with the virus.... poor booger, it won't be long now..... can I get an Amen !!<br><br>Bush.

I agree, AMEN. With this new power, it is 5 times more powerful. I figured that the engine is pretty much done. Don't think I could find any more power out of it then Mark did. But found out that Bill modified Mark's tranny a little more then the norm. So, off I go to see Bill (Mass Diesel) so I can get the same treatment. Heck, no fun if you have all this power and it goes nowhere. Rather be putting it to the ground to chop on some trucks around here.
