You make these swap look so freakin' fast and simple! Can you still use the GM gauges or what is your remedy for that? I really miss my burb and always dreamed of a swap like this bud.

ok i dont have the numbers in front of me but if you take what i took out "454 4l80e np243 front 3rd member and axles and then add back the cummins and trans it should equal out to about the same . the black truck is having front end problems thats why im building this one up so i can build it up with the d60 and d80 .

Nice job on the install. Are you going to run a cooler?

As far as A/C lines.
I put a vortec in my 66 wagon. When it came time to do the A/C i took the header that bolted to the pump and the lines that fit my system to the welding shop. Showed them what needed to be done and presto. $20.00 fix. Think we could get a Cummins in the wagon I'd do that.
