Upcoming tech day - 347 swap

Hey all - In the next not-too-distant future I'll be receiving the 347 I ordered from Creb Engineering (in Rhode Island) who has started sending me pictures of the assembly work being done. He's shooting to finish it up in the next couple days.

The tech day is being held at Gene Smith's (Smithkid) place in Puyallup at a date to be announced as soon as the motor arrives to Kenny (Redfalken) and Jeff (Jeff W) at their workplace (Starbucks, Seattle). If I were to set a tentative date, it would be Saturday the 22nd or 29th.

Hopefully, due to parking limitations at Gene's, we can meet and I'll drive a lot of us there in my 7-passenger van, or we can meet outside his "gated community" ( ) and we'll all drive in in one vehicle. This will allow some to leave when they have to if I end up spending the night in his garage.

If interested in helping, or even just watching to learn something you might not know, feel free to reply.

For any newbies here not aware the back story, this motor is going into my '63 Ranchero, which currently has a 289/T5 in it. So it should be a pretty straight-forward swap.

I've been collecting almost all the ancillary bits to make the best of our time; minimizing as much "pulling stuff off old motor to put on new motor" as possible. So I have a new intake, water pump, distributor, water outlet/thermostat here waiting already.

Dang...this is going to be a good one. Iím trying to get a vision for what Geneís gated community is going to look like...
Unfortunately, I just booked a work trip to China leaving on the 21st and returning on the 28th. The 29th Iíll be a bumbling zombie, but Iíll stop by if i can. Just donít let me touch anything if I do. Maybe I can do the pictures...

It's done and shipping...

on Monday to be received by Kenny and Jeff at their local coffee shop. I'm told, after a couple cups of their coffee, they'll be able to offload it by hand.

It's not likely to make it for the weekend of the 22nd, so it's probably going to be the weekend of the 29th.

Thanks Roger. I'm firming up my plans for it to take place the 29th & 30th. Would it be helpful for the pallet to come directly to my house from the coffee shop? Also, we could use my little truck if that would be a help.

Gene,

Lets see what it is Kenny and Jeff receives, and when, and you and I can talk about it then.

I got out there and got it out of the ghetto garage and cleaned it up, but of course the crappy ethanol carburetor disease had hit and I'm going to have to pull the carb and rebuild it so it's able to go to your place and run well on the new engine. I've been starting it every month, but ethanol is not friendly to carburetors at all.
