    Yea I just send them a request to cancel my order and bought one from someone on eBay that’s in north hills so that will definitely be here soon and for the same price as futofab but more likely to be here within a few days.

    Well I guess I paid $40 for a futofab alternator bracket and it’s been 2 weeks already and still no bracket I asked them why it’s still showing pending 4 days ago and they told me they ran out of parts than they were gonna have some ready by the end of the day and provide the tracking info as well and still after some days I haven’t gotten any tracking status. My alternator bracket is already broken so I had to weld it. It’s not gonna hold for long but has anyone else purchase from them before? Are the eBay brackets good?

    Haven’t done the muffler yet has the same one I bought the truck with. I recorded it to show I just started it up and to also let you all know that for some reason it sounds to a tally different that before. Before it was actually quieter now it’s a bit throaty I love it just weird how after the valve job it would sound way different haha

    that’s so true that’s the reason I couldn’t fish my truck wastes about 5 hours just because of that’s I put a bunch of stuff up rags in the middle section when I should of put them am the way down. Have any of you guys run an exhaust set up other than having it stock. I want to give my truck some taste haha

    Update on the engine. So what I didn’t wanted to happen happened. I was struggling trying to set the cam sprocket on with the timing chain and I just couldn’t...I try prying up the sprocket carefully and it still would budge my uncle said fuck it your gonna have to remove the timing cover. So I had to remove extra stuff I didn’t want to remove in the first place but anyways it was the chain tensioner that had pooped out pushing the chain tighter and getting stuck under the timing guides. I had to hold the chain while my uncle unbolted it compress it and set it back into place . Had to Wash And paint a lot of stuff all I need now is to put the oil pump back in put the distributor, radiator, hoses, thermostat housing and start her up!!!

    That l20 has everything on it. Intake and exhaust manifold and alternator with brackets. I’m planning on getting it and rebuilding it as a project with my oldest daughter age 7 who really seems interested on how I fix my cars haha. Would be nice to have her learn some basic stuff

    I’m going to be putting my truck together tomorrow. Head is out of the machine shop with fresh seals and everything else needed to put back on the l16. I also found another l20b engine number says u67 with a w58 head on it. It has the distributor and what looks like a 32/36 really dirty and rusty for $150
