  1. Got the transfer case in and found the 2nd to last bolt won’t tighten because it looks like a JB weld repair was done probably because they put too long of a bolt in. also verified the old driveshaft works
  2. GGot the transfer case / transmission adapter today from eBay and installed the new O-Ring rubber in the rear of the trans and slide the adapter on and tightened the four bolts holding it on the trans. the Transmission Cross Member I just paid too much money for, doesn’t work. Talking to Transtar Mike he mentioned the 700R4/NP241C is longer then the stock 350 or 400 trans with similar transfer case so the cross member won’t work. Sooo, going to Plan B which is attempt to use the newer cross member for the suburbans and trucks that had the 700R4 trans. looks good, just need to drill out a hole on either side. The rear hole on both sides lines up with existing holes but the front hole in the frame is too far away so I need to drill a hole closer to put the required 4 bolts in to hold the crossmember but as you see from the photo. It looks lined up. Truth will be when I tighten the trans mount and install transfer case and install driveshafts. i did have to cut the drivers side exhaust pipe to fit the support but it didn’t line up with the engine anyhow.

  4. Switched back from the LED amber bulbs since I got the fast flash because the amount of current is too much. In short the LED doesn't require that much current but the suburban doesn't know better so it flashes like crazy. I looked at fixes and they were all way more work than its worth so just switched back to regular amber bulbs and all is good. Left the LED bulbs in my license plate lights, driving lights and those are working great. Still would like to replace the taillight and brake bulbs to LED. Just have to do it.
  5. Beautiful truck that I had to capture the photos for reference when I build my 1964
