ohhhh.... Yeah pass on that. To my understanding, this generation of GM motor and trans is controlled by the same unit.
I'm mostly worried about trying to ... adapt a GM trans to the existing shift assembly and cluster outputs.
It's not my first swap, but it IS my first cross mfg swap. I've...
According to the internet (tm) the 4l60e can support 400/400 without much problems, and they are cheap enough that if I break one I can just get another one.
Sooo that's onto the consideration list. I know that there is an adapter from marks that will allow me to run the H2FA to the 4l60e...
Definately considering it. The 4l60e that came with the truck I bought was a 4WD so it wouldn't work with the marks adapter, so I just sold it.
If I do go GM, I'm thinking that a 4l80 2WD would be best?

* Engine rebuilt at machine shop bottom-to-top
* now sourcing full parts list before pulling engine from running vehicle.
I'll use this box to post questions that are outstanding and perhaps drop links for later developments.

Now in my possession is a zero-mile '04 GM 5.3 L59 that I intend to have carry me throughout the forests and hills; getting there is...
Sounds right, oil is in the right place for the distributor leak.
Though with the above posted video, I may need to do a little more extensive work.
engines got around 275k on it, so I might need to do a full rebuild here.
I have a feeling they are very much so related.
Maybe I'll just try to do an EGR blockoff / delete first and see how much better things get.
After that a leakdown test. It was pretty neglected in the form of oil seals so I know it could use a lot of help holding down drinks, haha.
No joke, hahah.
Well, I'll grab a video and show you guys. If I can be convince it isn't a rod knock, hell I'll just pull the head and get it rebuilt. have a good time! I have a check engine light because the EGR is all borked too, so maybe I'll delete that while I'm in there. one more...
