Re: DaveT's 93 Short Bus Build DaveT 1 hour ago
Had a little time after work today.
Found the rotors I ordered from Amazon and inner barring's and seals were incorrect. Re-ordered from a local place, should be here by tomorrow.

Almost done with the front, just need to change the pitman arm, and need a puller for that.
Tomorrow

These are 2.5" drop spindles, new stock springs, new upper A-arms, new lower ball joints, and new brake hoses.
Waiting on a few more parts.
Should be done by the weekend, hopefully. Then I can drive it, rear breaks next, then the real fun begins.

Introduce Yourself..... Jump to new posts
Re: Sidecar Intro Just4fun1991 Yesterday at 07:20 PM
Sidecar

Welcome to the forum

To give a little personal input (not advice) but look what is above the area that you want to put the side pipe length at, meaning window, door. It would be my personal input not to install/terminate the side exhaust under a window or a door where one can get out of the van and get burned by the exhaust (most side pipes have covers, but it's the exhaust either coming in the window when van is at idle or someone getting out of the van getting burned by the exhaust)

Best place to look for van parts would be here or E-bay and if you have a Facebook account then you may want to look at a van group. If you want stock replacement windows, check out

Best of luck and hope you stick around this site....

79 Corvette motor in 79 G20.. will it work? Forrest Yesterday at 06:37 PM
Just picked up a low miles 79 L82 Corvette motor to hopefully put in our 79 Van Dura G20 that came to us with no motor or transmission. .
1st thing I noticed is the dipstick boss on the L82 is on the driver's side. I have a oil fill tube and dipstick tube off a van, but it's setup for passenger side and does not work in the L82.. wrong length, mt hole etc.

I imagine someone here at some point has stuck a car engine in one of these vans, and I'm hoping to get some advise and insight on what to look for, parts I'll need etc. L82 came complete with air filter down, but missing oil pan.. although that made it easy to confirm 4bolt mains lol.

Re: Question About Oil Pressure Gauge On A 91 jcd74 July 05th 2022 9:37 pm
Cold start it should peg the needle (60+ PSI) warm- almost 30+ Middle of gauge, hot- lucky to have it above 20. Don't judge your oil pressure at idle hot, kick up the throttle to a fast idle around 1000 rpm then look. The senders are mostly crap, they leak at the fitting and at the electrical connection. You can clean the connection and make sure it's tight. A little pinch with pliers will help and I mean little don't crush. when driving at a steady pace you should see a constant reading. Remember the van is old and GM sold cars in the mid 80's that were only ment to go 100k don't expect much, but they will last longer.

Re: How did you acquire your van?? 1986LSVAN July 04th 2022 4:47 pm
Chevydude 1987-It was not easy for me, I am not a mechanic but I enjoy solving problems. I got lucky and the exhaust manifolds I ordered fit well. I modified the trans crossmember, fabricated several brackets for ECM, shift cable(from donor), used donor fuel module in a new tank, modified donor gas pedal. Harness came with OBDII. I have mixed feelings about using the Painless harness unless you had them extend the wiring for van use. I had the donor harness and went to it many times for connectors and info. Main thing is get everything from the donor- ECM, TAC, pedal assembly, MAF. Once done, you have an incredible improved rig. I am seeing much improved mileage and more power than I thought I would get. It is hard to keep my foot out of it as it runs so strong and sounds so good.
