Since putting bigger/heavier rear wheels, I noticed a vibration at a specific speed. I had the tire shop re check the balance of all tires and found a few out of balance. Ran it back to 55, still noticed it. I felt it in the pedal so I had a sneaking suspicion...

And I was right. Transmission mount was toast!
Comparably to a new one.

Annoyingly the center bore on that new mount was too tight and as I was knocking in the large bolt that went through the center of the mount to the cross member, it got wedged tight and wouldn’t budge. I had to ream the center and file the bolt a bit itself from some corrosion over the years and it finally fit perfect. I had to remove the crossmember to get it all apart after it got wedged which was an annoying extra step but it made installing the mount bolts to the trans itself much easier.

I started it. It runs. It's alive. 5.3L Vortec swap almost done! Just need to do some wiring cleanup and put it back together. So damn excited.

Love the contrast with the two bars and the black backer. Super clean!

thanks! I have been at odds about what to do with the grill because it was looking sad. I decided to try the black paint and i like it.

Change the valve cover gasket from cork to rubber and install a new carburetor smile

Next week it will be a new radiator.
