Beautiful!

I also have a GMC with the 366 big block.
I have a good friend who drives trucks, tractors, and dump trucks and he said if we keep new oil in the 366 will run forever.

I love the bbc motor because it is familiar to my mind. I have been working on V8 gas motors since i was young. I get them. First motor swap i helped with changed my life lol.

Congrats!

Found my chassis fuse box. Is it just me or could there be a better place for it. While looking I found a "Weldon 7000" is there any use for it in a skoolie?

Well today was busy...
Checked into getting a a second 50 gallon propane tank, now looking for a used tank.
Checked on getting an off the shelf "Y" pipe, no luck. Custom exhaust here we come.
Checked into getting 900 R 20 tires or something to fit, nothing. Custom rims and 22.5 tires down the road.

Hi Bluebird1998. If you are not using it as you drive I don't think there is anything they can say. Just install it like a mobile home. Also if you are using it for heat only you don't need a big one.

Your tranny should be a 4 speed. The middle number in the 500 series Allisons is the number of gears.

Tango, Thanks for info. I thought the gear selector showed the number "R N D 3 2 1"
