if the idle is anywhere close to 850 +/- 50 rpms, the timing is probably good.

I didn't run it long enough to come to operating temp but it did a 1200rpm cold idle then starting coming down as it warmed up. Was down to 1000rpm when I shut it off. I think it had barely touched 120F water temp by then. Ive got almost no fuel in the tank so I didn't want to run it dry.

Stupid *(^*&%*^ front diff! Had to lift the motor up to get the diff in. Oil pan hits the diff on a weld that isnt there on the old one and holds the passenger side of the motor up about 1/2 inch. Any ideas?


I pre-loaded the torsion bars WAY to much. Still havnt bled the clutch. And it was absolutely pouring rain so I didnt want to do jack on the truck.

multiple options there John. You can buy diff drop bushings that drop the diff about an inch. You could probably use a piece of plate to raise the motor mounts 1/4 inch on either side and that would do it. You could also grind down the area on the diff where it hits the engine with a flap disc, OR use a hammer to beat a dent into the oil pan (probably the easiest way). As long as it's not hitting there the sump goes into the bottom which I suspect it's not.

I don't see how a diff drop would work. The front of the diff sits on top of the cross member.

I'm not sure what I'll be doing yet. Now I'm back out in the mud and rain.

"I don't see how a diff drop would work. The front of the diff sits on top of the cross member."

Could you space the cross member down a little?

I don't hit that at all.

I don't want to make anything under the truck lower. Lower means I break it off with a rock.

the best is the oil pan mod. consider actually cutting and welding it if you can. if you cant then dont hit it directly with a hammer. use a deadblow and a block of wood. they are surprisingly thick when you wanna dent it
