I got a 84 suburban that was originally a 6.2 truck that now has 396/t400 in it :D wanna buy it for a guide?

if you have any specific questions, I can take a look at it, but I didn't build is so can't make you a guide

Trans is different Buick olds Cadillac bell housing and converter is a low stall
And the differentials will have tall gears great on hiway
You will need to change engine to frame mounts
the holes will be in cross member
Not sure on making gages work
Think on the gas ones all the gages are ran by the Ecu
Did a carb bb into buddy's oneton never got the speedo to work

the tank on a diesel has return lines and a low spot in the tank for sediment

So does a fuel injected gas truck tanks are the same
But the fuel lines come up at the back of tho motor instead of
Front

skyjacker is right,my buddy did a 6.2 to a 350.The only thing he did was drain the diesel an put gas in,also changed the throttle cable.
other then that it bolted right up an he was all set.

it was a 6.2 with th400,now its a 350 with a th400.[36]
