Last night I patched up the hole in the 4.7L's oil pan with some metal screen and JB weld. The hole was about the size of a quarter.

Today I put some oil in and the patch held. I filled the motor up and gave her a turn over. Heard some LOUD clunks, while cranking. but it started up and idled smoothly so I shut it off and then saw a bunch of smoke and noticed oil dripping into the bucket.....

now the hole is about the size of my fist....

You dont need a 12" slip for your rear driveline. The stock will work fine. The front needs it because the diff is offset and uses alot more slip(by the way, you can build 3 square shafts for the price of a crappy 10" Trail Gear slip).

pulled the motor and did some hacksawing on the tundra today.

number 8 cylinder has a broken connecting rod and it looks like the cylinder has some scoring.

can anybody suggest a good engine builder?

not sure how many miles are on it the speed odometer stopped working at 150k in 2003.

greg's doing good, man. i went and stayed at the hospital in SB, for a few days. it was a hard thing to happen but the dude is tough and stubborn. last i heard is he put some hand controls on a rhino, and has some on order for the vette.

the stock position of the motor mounts for the tundra are 6 inches WIDER than my front frame rails... so i've gotta figure out some way to mount this fucker. also i hear that dual cases with the auto are a mother fucker to stop and you have to just about shift it into neutral so i might just use one 4.7 case. but either way i have a ton of work ahead of me. estimated time till i hit the trails.... memorial day 2015

I had a buddy that had hand controls on his vette makes it really easy to do brake stands.......I can see greg now.....lol

Even with 4.7's it will act the same as dual cases with the brakes the crawl ratio of yota duals with stock gears in both is 5.2:1 not all that far off 4.7:1 plus with duals you have 2.28:1 when you wanna go faster :thumbsup: only using one case in low will you wont have the brake issue as bad anyway then you can throw your reduction box in as needed with 4.7's youll have the thing powering thru your brakes the whole trip... for the motor you could build a whole new front frame section just cut the frame a few inches forward of the firewall tube in around the motor and just hang your fenders on the tube :kranker: raising the motor to clear the frame puts your center of gravity higher and you'll roll easier keep the motor low expecially since your adding a ton of weight over the 4 banger
