There is not a whole lot really. There is like 4 engine solenoids/sensors needed to run it. You'd also find way more than enough wiring on a stock harness to route the injector driver and PCM in cab

Well cucv started making some noises and they sounded like a cracked flywheel. So I pulled the trans today and did find a cracked flywheel, but I also found my trans case is fucked... so thatís awesome and not really sure if I should just find a case or do something else. Money sucks right now until I sell the white blazer, so might be on a back burner till I find a decent deal.

Even though it would be missing two mounting points?

I wouldn't worry one bit. The dowels are there, that's what counts, so it's aligned, good. 2-3 good mounting holes... theres no support based on bellhousing. Cross member is good enough, it just needs to rest against the engine.

So after lots of thought and cost comparisons I decided to 4L80E swap this bitch. Thanks to @daturbosix I picked one up for a great price.

After getting it homing and pulling the pan I decided to just take the gamble and put it in without rebuilding and see if I get lucky. The only thing it will cost me is time.



I picked up a torque converter from advances Labor Day 25% off sale and a flexplate.



The old flexplate is what I thought was the initial issue and well is was an issue just not thee issue


Luckily the truck is tall enough to just roll the trans under it on the jack


So I got the trans in place and tried fitting the transfer case up but the trans to transfer case adapter is slightly off so Iíll have to do some ďmassagingĒ to make them all play together nice. Looks like Iíll have to pretty much just lengthen the shift linkage and shorten the drive shaft a tad. Iíll update this with all the little things that it will take to complete the swap.

Could be the harmonic balancer is bad, could be the bellhousing was loose, but most likely just because itís a 6.2 diesel.

I changed out my balancer when I did the turbo. Looked fine on the front side but the backside just had chunks of rubber missing and falling out.

So got some more things done. It fought me for a little but things are starting to go smooth for now.

So to get the linkage to work I had to swap the gear selector from the 4l80e to the turbo400 one. While taking the one off the 4l80e the selector rod snapped.



Thatís the 400 one, so then while taking the rod out of the 4l80e the ďnailĒ that holds the rod on snapped flush with the case.



After a lot of patience and a dremel I finally got it out and got the 400 one put in. So the pan is back on and all buttoned up. While I was in there I changed the wiring harness even though it turned out to be the same.



Then I moved on to putting the wiring in. I got the tci controller, it has great reviews and seems pretty straight forward. The drivers side it pretty empty so I decided to mount it all over there.





I also got there tps kit. There is a place to hook it on the throttle just no bracket to mount it. I had one from a carb laying around so I took that and some straight bar to make my own. It turned out to work pretty well. It mounts to one of the intake bolts and actually goes under the intake so you donít even notice itís there.





So I have a few things left.
-I need to find a 4l80e dipstick and tube.
-Still have to bolt the torque converter to flywheel.
-Have to lengthen the shift rod.
-Get the driveshaft shortened.
-Finish button up the wiring, trying to decide if I should get a trigger for the rpm lead. Says you can use the tps, but trigger sounds more accurate.
-Have to figure out how and where to mount the dash controller
-I need to run new lines for the cooler. The existing ones will bolt up, but Iíd have to stretch the lines the make them work.


So Iíll probably just get an auxiliary cooler and run new lines.

Thatís about all I got done yesterday, so moving along nicely.
