Love that motor. This is shaping up to be the build thread of the year Deo.
Thanks, I’m definitely more excited about this build than any other Cruiser I’ve slapped together, as I think it’s going to be the most fun to drive. I have a few goals for it:

500 hp
City block long burn outs
Cross country travel

I also want to beat up on chevys fords and dodges. This 60 will be known as “The Domestic Abuser” but I’ll just call it “The 60” to keep things simple.

The sc400 comes with a rear sump oil pan whereas the ls400 has a front sump. I picked up a sc400 motor and will be runnings it’s pan.

I bought this “complete” h55/case thinking it would save time. Backstory: it came from my bud, who doesn’t wrench. He purchased the transmission new and had a “shop” install it in his 70 series during a restoration. He drove the truck a whole ten miles after the restoration was complete and the engine blew. (It had no oil). He ended up with another complete drivetrain leaving the blown engine and this trans/ xfer in the corner of the garage.


The transmission looks new, has clean fluid and goes into each gear as it should. The transfer hi low lever was disconnected in the pic he sent. After picking it up and attempting to shift into low it was obvious the shift fork isn’t in place. I’m also willing to bet that there is no 5th gear oiler in there either. I’ve got it on the operating table for a full disassembly/ inspection this weekend.
