66 Lemans need Parts list 5.3L swap
Hello, I'm new to this forum.
The owner of my Company purchased a 66 Lemans OHC in-line 6. Fairly Clean, has a decent bit of surface rust. Nothing serious. He has task me with some goals.
He wanted an Chevy 350/400 drive-train. I talked him into a nice truck 5.3L engine swap with an 4L60E. Now I have to put a parts list together. To get this thing rolling.
I know where to get the engine and drive-train. That's not an issue.
I'm concerned with Motor mounts, Oil Pan, Cross-members, Drive-shaft or what-eva else. I know where to get a drive-shaft made. But sometimes, you can get lucky with swaps.
I'm fairly exp. with engine swaps. I put an Olds 307 into a 86 Camaro (16 years old didn't know, no better). In the process of helping a friend stick a 02 Camaro LS1 in a 89 240sx. And I daily a 81 Olds Cutlass with a Original 350 DIESEL!!!.
Any links of suggests would be helpful. I did search alittle. But came out with nothing solid.
P.S. This will be a simple cruiser. Wanted Fuel injection, all-a-round disc brakes, maybe a rear-end gear change depending on stock gearing (8.2 bolt), and stock replacement suspension.
