    :D 1990 Chevy 2500 2wd 350TBI/700R4....went and got a temporary plate for it, been driving it around for a week now. It has 135k miles on it. Tranny has 32k on a rebuild. Motor is very strong, no smoke, idles well. Went out Sunday and cut a load of wood, hauled it no prob.

    Just wondering what anyone thinks I should do to this before I start working on getting it in the cruiser?

    It's almost a shame to part it out, but wife says I don't need another truck :grinpimp:

    Just wondering if I could use the gear box also for the ps conversion, looks like its a 3 bolt though.

    Anyone know where I can find a wiring schematic for this vehicle?
