Here is a picture of my truck taken at the house of the man I bought it from. It cost me $1500.00 which isn't bad considering it was 100% road legal and ran perfact. My truck has Dana 44 rear and Dana 25 front axles with 4.27 gears, so it's not bad on the highway.

The drive line consists of a 250 Chevy 6 cylinder. My dad works at a automotive machine shop, so as he fixed the machines, he tested them on my motor. The bottom end was redone a few years ago so I left that all together. But we did about $800 worth of work on the head for free. There is a special cast iron adaptor plate and alumanum bell housing to fit the Chevy up to the T-90. The entire clutch is rebuilt profesinally with a new disk and throw out bearing. Trans and transfercase are the original T-90 & Spicer 18 - all rebuilt with new bearings, thrust washers, etc. I bought the overdrive from a guy at work for $100. It's the Borg Warner overdrive. As you know, that is the one used in the 2WD Stationwagons. That was rebuilt and put on. I got ALL new brakes cylnders, master cylnder, and lines. I have the Warn locking hubs to save gas. I did not have to cut out any of the chassis to put in the new engine, just drill two little holes. It would literally take me a few hours to put the 226 back in. I'm sending you a exploded drawing I drew of my overdrive. Most people I talk to are very intrested in it because it is more stock than the Saturn/Warn. It isn't the best drawn picture but not bad for a quick 15 minuit job on the back of my repair manual. The drawing is VERY VERY large because that was the only way to get all the detail in.
