Changed the timing chain out yesterday, since I was in there PM doing the oil pump.
The new one had a bit of slack, so, I put the old one back on to see what kind of slack it had, it was much more, so I put the new one back on.
I can't for the life of me remember if I checked the timing marks the first time or the 2nd time I put the new chain on.
Gonna open it back up today and double check, I can't not know if it's right before I go further.
Stupid.
If this picture didn't suck you could almost see and not open it up. But it sucks!



Switched pans too.
Left the shop feeling like I was all that before remembering I didn't double check the timing.

Is that an F body oil pan? Did you put a baffle on it? Guys running that pan without a baffle on it have cooked their motors due to oil starvation in off camber situations.

I didn't.
That sucks, first I've heard that. Thanks!

Damn they're expensive too.

I ran a H3 pan on mine. About an inch shorter than the truck pan but no oil starvation issues and only a little over $100 new.

Do you plan on any sort of skid for the pan? I smashed my truck pan first time out so Im hoping to do the camaro pan with baffles and a skid

Skid is low on my list, that's why I switched pans. One of these days I'll make one but that's a ways out.
I don't really see how that baffle would mount with the ribs my pan has on the inside. Or with the pickup tube.
Or maybe this isn't the pan I thought it was. Fleabay.
Edit. Double checked apparently it's from a C6.



Also. Glad I went back in to check timing... Nice job huh?



Mounted the radiator, looks like it'll work decent size wise, hope its enough to keep it cool.
Climbed inside with the hood closed and it has plenty of clearance.
I had "helpers" at this point =

Also.
Thanks to anyone reading this and commenting.
Being a hack, I'll take all the help/suggestions I can get.

What are you plans for a cooling fan?

I haven't picked one or really looked too hard into it yet, but I'm thinking a junkyard electric fan with a shroud built into the mount somehow. As far as CFMs or anything, I haven't got there yet...

I finally ended up with a Lincoln MK8 fan. The shroud fit the radiator perfectly (with a little notch for the lower rad hose). I controlled it with the PCM and a inexpensive 50 amp relay. It's a monster of a fan CFM wise.

Hindsight though, I probably should have just went for a mechanical fan for simplicity.

I like that one, with the shroud built in... looks like it'd work good.

AA motor mounts came.



Got a VSS kit which has a new 1310cv yoke.
I had a np231 front CV yoke that I thought I was going to use, but it turns out this Atlas has the HD 32 front output.
The CV and non-CV yokes are the same spline, but the OD is different at the seal.
But the VSS kit came with a seal for that, which matched the rear yoke I had, so I just used the new seal up front.

The trans has to move down about 2" from here.





Won't be able to clock the Atlas flat cause this is the driver's footwell. Trans comes down, case will have to be clocked down. Probably still cutting the floor.

If anybody's got a 465 or flat clocked Atlas and wants to show off their crossmember I'd love to see it.
