i bought a crippled truck at a flying J a week ago with a broken steering column from vandalism and attempted theft of the vehicle. i put a used steering column in it and now it runs. it runs decent and i drove it home yesterday about 10 miles or so. the transmission is good and shifts fine with no issues and motor seems to have plenty of power. truck has a 391 rear end in it. the overdrive doesn't engage. the wiring is suspect and i called gear vendors customer service and he told me how to how wire the solenoid with a toggle switch to see if it is good by passing all the wiring and dimmer switch. what i want to do is make sure transmission and overdrive are functioning well and install behind a FE gasoline engine or a 385 series stroker in a shortbed pickup. will the guts out of a 88 7.3 diesel C6 install in the case from a 460 or 428 C6. thanks.
Everything will fit.
