after buying the truck i soon found out that the heater core was bypassed

but the worst to come one day i was driving on the highway and out of the blue the truck turned off right when i got off a exit and wouldnt start again i through it in 4th and roll started it and just lived i almost crashed into a tree after that moment i had a rod knock FML second 4.3 ive killed

i purchased a long block from jasper engines for about 1900 with alot of extra goods (new water pump wires etc) you may ask why not a junk yard engine jasper has a 100,000 mile warrenty

what a mission it was to swap engines its 200 times harder on a manaul because of the input shaft and i was doing in my drive way ive had my engine out in my other rig many time and now that seems like cake
