Thanks for the tip Brian. I doubt the civic ball joint will be compatible with the s10 spindle, so was already planning on modding the arm for s10 ball joints (or something similar)

Won myself some Lotus Bilstein shocks. Working out spring rates now.

Its getting there...... slowly.

If I can bolt a 4T40E to a quad 4 block, your fine.


oh im not worried about it not bolting up, just noticed those two bosses that are different between the two. and hell maybe its just the quad block i checked who knows. i know for a fact that the NVG does not use one LD9 boss on the underside that goes into the oil pan though.

and brian... SUHHHHWEEEEET i am glad you said that, i really didnt wanna have to buy a different clutch disc lol thats awesome! and at the same time that SUCKS. i found a BRAND NEW world class T5 on ebay for something stupid like 400 shipped, too. bummer.

link?

A few pages back there was info posted on a clutch disk that will work with a World Class.
Jamie Smith used a Cav clutch with a non world class T5 in his Nova.

Google search for the bell housing, that's how I found mine for 50% off.

Just took a look, a '79 for $1500...... Looks pretty clean.

I'm pretty set on the body I have (exp since I doubt I could find a buyer to make it worth while).....

ALTHOUGH if someone found me a Buick Opel by Isuzu, or I-mark for a decent price, I'd sell my body for scrap metal! lol

People just had to talk about C4 IRS swaps....... Spent the last two days researching swaps, narrowing, mounting......

My Bilsteins showed up. Need some upper control arms so I can get front suspension back in.

Ok. Borrowed a welder from my uncle, angle grinder from my brother, and had some time to work on the project.

I trimmed up the subframe, cutting out the bump stop and spring pockets, as well as the upper control arm mounts.


Also welded a skid plate to the bottom of the subframe boxing it in.


Then I took the angle grinder to the engine bay, making room for the radiator. Will pick up some angle iron to add support to the lower radiator support.

Slid the radiator in.



Who needs a metal brake when you have some 2x4's and a bench vise?
Bent up a upper radiator mount.




At least it's some progress. lol

lol, I haven't seen the new one yet, but I had heard that the Fbomb camaro was in it.
I just googled olive drab car and that pic came up...... pretty much what I had pictured in my head.

Is this better?

Haven't made much progress since last update. Had a couple other projects I need to get out of the way first.

I did pick up some stock S10 spindles, rotor hubs, and calipers. They're not the '98+ Blazer ones I wanted, but they were free.

I have the 220k mile 2.4 on the engine stand, need to tear it down and replace the bearings and oil pump. THEN I can pull my W41. lol

Still plugging away.
