Currently working on an LT1 swap in the 85' Elky and will need help lol

Glad that you stopped "lurking" and decided to join us! With 3 Elkies, the first step should be to post some pix of your projects and tell us what your plans are. Welcome to the club!

As long as you don't trade being a lurker for a stalker, you are only allowed one question per car. :nanawrench:Only kidding, welcome aboard! :beer:

Welcome to the Forums, No Plan. You've joined up with the most knowledgeable folks there are about the El Camino and Sprint vehicles that we like to call crucks. But, if you've "lurked" for a while, you probably already know that! So, I'll just wish you the best of luck as you follow your plan, No Plan, and make your El Camino all that YOU want it to be. If I can be of service to you, don't hesitate to PM me.................Ken :beer:

Here is a pic of the 85 getting the LT1 swap. I had it for several years. The trans shelled in 2004 & it's been sitting ever since! I just moved it to this garage, changed hoods, wheels & started the lowering process. It will have air bags & dropped spindles. I have what I believe (how can I find out for sure?) to be a 93 or 94 LT1 from a B-body (70k miles) stock at this time, also a 85 700r4 trans, & a Painless wire loom, headers, & a Qk Perf. 9" rear housing w/ no cntr sec. I haven't pulled the 305 or trans yet. I got it from a guy that winters in Arizonia, so it's rust free. I used to do some custom painting, so I will probably paint it after the engine swap if it turns out to be reliable. I just retired so now I can do some of my projects!.... OH!!!!Sorry, I'm too damn old & stupid to get pics to post with this- insert image- not like what I've done in the past & can't figure it out yet. Will work on that ! I have some of my 59 project also.
