    That's pretty cool Mike. Is a 4 x 4 truck? Those things were tough to pull a V-6 out of let alone a V-8. Looks like it drove nicely for you.

      Yes, 4x4, everything is original except for exhaust and headers.
      Don't ask about the rag inside the engine after the rebuild.

          Ok, long story short, I got the engine from the junkyard, cleaned it up, stuck it in the s10, drove it around for a couple months, decided I would rebuild it. Took engine back out, rebuilt it top to bottom. Reinstalled, decided to gut the cat, noticed new profound power, then all of a sudden, no oil pressure. Got it back, checked over everything. In order to drop the oil pan, the engine has to be pulled because of the front diff. PULLED ENGINE AGAIN, removed oil pan, found rag sucked into oil pickup tube. Removed rag, REINSTALLED EVERYTHING....AGAIN!! Been driving it since(6years).

                Yeah bad things happen in a very short time with that kind of failure.
