Well, I just got a new job that puts me in a position to where I have less time on my hands than usual. However, it puts a lot more money in my pocket, so instead of rebuilding this 3.4 I have, I am going to buy me a crate motor so I can put it in the truck in just a few days and be up and going. I have a question or two, and also add to this list if you can think of anything else.
1. I need to get a flexplate from a 87 or newer motor
2. I am converting over to a serpentine setup from the vee setup on the 84 motor. I am going to need a newer 87+ oil pan as well correct?
3. I'll need an electric fuel pump (I already have). Does anybody have a picture of their fuel pump install? Which lines are which on the 84? If I remember correctly, are the lines not differently located on the EFI trucks than the older carbed trucks? I mean like which size line is the the pickup, and which is the return line?
Am I forgetting anything?
Also, I have a disassembled 3.4 for sale. Nothing internally wrong as near as I can tell. I'll sell it for a $100 bill as long as you are comfortable with the freight charges or picking it up in McCalla, Alabama, which is inbetween Birmingham and Tuscaloosa. PM me if you are interested in it. I'll put it on ya! SInce it is disassembled, I could potentially freight the block, and ship the cam, pistons and assorted parts through UPS which might be cheaper.
Oh yeah! ROLL TIDE!!!!!!!!!
