Is that the calmini rack?

Cool rig!  [thumbsup] [black_s]
Pix and Vids / Re: L67 Swap Progress
Not trying to say one way or the other is the right choice (I would have went L67 also because I am biased)  [lol]

I do know though, when my L67 takes a dump, I will probably swap an L32 lower end in there. (If i can find one at pick n pull)  [idea]

About the L36, I didn't say to do it, I just know many have "top swapped" their NA 3800.  :welder: :welder: :welder:

I would do the LIM gaskets if you haven't already, and there was a recall on the valve cover with the oil inlet, maybe you can get GM to swap that out for you.  [lol] [lol] :P

One last burning question, are you gonna drop a pulley size, add a cam, upgrade the valve springs and do LS1 rockers????  [idea] [idea] [idea] 8) 8) ::) ::) ::)

Cool build, wish I had the time and $$$$$ to do it.

Can't wait to see it run!  [thumbsup]

Hmm, maybe the TB is fly-by-wire, but I think you can just swap the TB out on the GenV, also some use the northstar TB config.  [thumbsup]

GenIII to GenV

N* pic in first message

Just a pic of a N* TB

My L67 has nearly 190k miles on it and runs fine.

I bought it with just over 100k about 10 years ago!  8)

Solid engines!

I do have some lifter noise due to a collapsed lifter that wiped a cam lobe slightly (last repair I did, although I didn't swap the cam) or it is some serious piston slap.

Some guys actually do drop a SC on a n L36 (NA) and then tweak it in the tuning.

I have pulled the LIM and heads a few times now, and the oil pan is a serious PITA (in a fwd transaxle config)

Also "driveway rebuilt" my 4T65-E when the overdrive took a dump..

GM's SC'ed 3800, gotta love em.

Low mileage L67 is hard to find these days!

Also, with the horror stories about people rebuilding the lower end, a JY swap is usually the safest bet...

Also, many people do a "top swap" to their L36 (higher compression)

Why not use the L32 in something like this application?
('04 up)

It has the GenV blower also...

Just curious  [red_s]

Samurai Tech / Re: Dreaded steering shaft play
Can you link the forum post about the shaft rebuild?

I didn't know there was a bushing there, I always thought the rag joint was the thing everyone spoke about...

RIP Surly, wish you were around to pick your brain about carb q's

No repair, the cast housing is shot and would be very difficult the recreate that seal area (pan lip)

New/used housing is $300...

Argh, we found a local brand new from factory from a mopar head for $1000

Since he save a bajillion on the score, he had a shop install it for $600...

I think he got off cheap for an SRT8 tranny replacement.  [thumbsup] [thumbsup] [thumbsup]
Samurai Tech / Re: Rust and Bushwhacker Flares installation
If you have any questions feel free to ask.
What is the approx. cost for just the building itself? (footing and all)
8) ;D
Samurai Tech / Re: Last minute beater build.
You've done more to your beater build than I have to mine in months!

General Chit Chat / Re: Last one to post wins

Yes, just for fun... 8)

I plan on keeping the hitachi on there for the most part, maybe just a few trial runs with the non-feedback and weber  8)

I have had my zuk nearly 10 years now, time to have a little fun  [thumbsup]
:o :o :o :o

I have 7 hitachis (including the one in the car!)

3-4 of them are total scrap carbs that I may "send out to the pasture" fairly soon... [lol]

It has been fun selling a few nick nack items back to a few members here, but in all reality, I have 2 really nice rebuilds (one in the car and one on the bench) and it has TAKEN 3-4  to make 2 really good ones!

Keeping one as a spare.

This carb (the non feedback) I want to toy with and see how it actually runs in the car, but this will require time and research, but I feel confident I can get 'er going!

Also, I just picked up a 32x36 Weber from a forum member here and I am very excited to tear it down! (thanks again @Mr. Black‍ )

Oh, I also have a Sprint carb in the pack that is in great condition and I am just hanging on to it for God knows why!

I have a search setup at Pick-N-Pull for sprints (has the 1.0L in them with a feedback Hitachi) so I can go scavenge MCSVs and try to hawk them on ebay

eBay is a rough deal these days, I usually try to avoid selling there due to the overhead associated with selling on the site...

I really don't know what I have planned for 'em, I just know ONE day I will need one!
Thanks for the carby!

Another one for the stash!  8)
Your input shaft pic is kinda fuzzy, but mine was a little uneven, so I opted for the wider bearing and it seems fine   [thumbsup]
