Logan Lanfear replied to Kevin Angie Berglund's topic in 1973-1987 Chevrolet & GMC Square Body / Rounded Line PickupsIntake manifold, carb (obviously), fuel pressure regulator, throttle setup for a carb linkage. You would probably be able to get a stand alone controller for the transmission if its a 4L60e. You will probably need a different distribute and ignition system to get it to be stand alone and not running off of the computer. The trans could always be swapped to something that wasnt electrically controlled. TH-700 or a TH-400. Why are you looking to get away from the TBI?
My grandparents live along a state road here in VT. Their neighbors had a mailbox that seemed to attract the plow blades of the larger trucks (full size dumps running sanders and wing blades). They replaced it with a 3/4" plate box on top of a 10" I beam sunk in about 4 feet. Once the ground freezes here that post wasn't getting bent. One afternoon, a plow hit it during a storm and it bent the wing blade right in half, Ill see if I can find the picture.

Ive read that flushing the fluid out of a 4L60e can damage it. Others say just to drop the pan and change the filter and refill the trans. What are the pros and cons of each? What would you reccomend for fluid for a 1998 4L60e with 185k?
Something definitely sounds fishy about that mechanic, I would take it to someone you can trust or preform a compression check yourself. You can get the kits online or maybe at your local parts store.
Its not going to be easy but its not the most complicated. You have to split it up into different sections. Starting with the axle, a dana 44 came on the 80s 3/4 ton truck but if you wanted some more weight capacity I would try and find a dana 60. Those might have came on the 80's 1 ton trucks and they also came on some fords. Suspension wise you have to know what kind of lift height you want to run because you probably wont be able to keep stock height. I've seen swaps that only add about 4-5" using reversed arch leave springs. These came on the 80's gm 4wd trucks. My advice would be to find a good parts truck and work from there. Steering is another issue whether you want to go with a remote hydraulic system or try and match something that came stock on the 80's trucks. Coil springs are a different suspension option, they would be more expensive because of a the tracbar setup but they probably would ride better. Some of these trucks came with lockers in the rear or limited slips. It depends on your RPO codes in the glove box.
I had coolant spitting out from behind the alternator, almost around the water pump. Took off the lower intake manifold and it was a no brainer that the gasket was just wrecked. The truck ran alright but obviously wouldn't be driven, enough coolant was coming out to empty the whole system in about a minute or two. I still count myself lucky that none of it made it into a cylinder or into the crankcase.
