My truck has a 454 in it so you can
imagine the gas that it chugs. I like
the old 454 for their cast iron
blocks. However, replacing the pitman
arm, left front wheel bearing,
alternator, starter, water pump, hydro
boost pump, rear drums, valve cover
gaskets, and more to come, I think am
begining to lose confidence that I can
actually drive this truck "till the
wheels fall off" without spending far
too much on keeping it on the road.
454 block, pulls my boat with ease,
heavy safe vehicle for the wife and
Keep the sold drive train General
Motors, try upgrading all the other
critical parts so a guy can actually
drive one till the wheels fall off
without going broke in the process!
