I have a very clean 81 lesabre (it’s basically just a big g body 😁) that currently hosts a 350 that smokes like a diesel and a 700r4 that has a lack of 3rd and 4th gear. This winter I’m hoping to swap in a 454/th400 getting the motor and trans mounted is not my concerns, the wireing aspect...
I have already bought brand new spindles, so i do not want to have to buy them again to do blazer upgrade.
With that being said, which direction should i go when upgrading front brakes using the stock spindle. Minimum rim size will not be a problem, i have big wheels.
Had an early 80's Elco about 20 yrs ago that i had just barely gotten started on by swapping in a sb and auto trans in place of the v6 and 3 sp man along with exhaust. Then life got in the way and i had to sell it for a work rig. So for 20 yrs i have watched others build, race, and just flat out...
To all who have the experience with doing a beefier transmission swap..
I'm swapping a big block in my '85 elco and along with it a new transmission. From the stock th350 to a th400. My question is will the stock crossmember suffice or am I gonna have to scrap it and have another installed? Thanks!
