Ended up just going the local route with the brake lines. But im ordering spare parts online.

Ther are a few things iv overlooked On the th350
the tv cable is non existant. What are most doing about plugging it (rtv?) I'd rather plug it, but Google 85 coming up empty with a cheap fix besides rtv.

Are most also blocking off the vacume port?
Hey! I bet that is where the drywAll screw is on mine!! I never wanted to mess with it cause it works. But dam sure got a screw In mine.

Not much to update but the trans don't have any line pressure so I pulled it to have rebuilt asap.

Hubs were dropped off at Lnw fab here locally to be bored out to accept 35 spline shafts

Picked up a set of 44s 18.50s for the rig... Damn these things make my 38s look like ford Fiesta tires

Well I had a bunch of chit typed out then my ph died.. here's the short version

First trip out, was having brake issues along with over heating .
The lifter tick I had was turning into a lifter tock! Sounded like a damn cummins on the trail. Overall I was happy besides the mentioned above.

Towards the end off rbd the engine sounded like a faint knock. So that ended the trip.

After starring at the buggy for a wk I decided to tear the engine out to take a look see. ( Im 99% sure the knock was loose tq converter bolts ) and the lifter issues was a sight for sore eyes

Purchased additionally parts to fixr up ( lifters pushrods and random other chit I skipped during re build ) and shortly after I did that I b can across my engine I wanted from the get go. Lq9. Low millage blah blah. So also picked that up...merry Christmas to me. 3 days before xmas we dropped my 6 oh in. Cranked here up and guess what?!?! Sounded perfect! No more lifter bs. Count be more releaved.
Now enough typing here are some pics
