Just a 72 year old gear head with 20w50 blood type. My love is drag racing and the yukon XL gets me there. I like building Mark4 BBC 1100 plus HP NA motors to 10,000 RPMs and clutch 4 speed trans. I do my own chassis work and 4 link system always upgrading my Chevelle SS
Use to have a shop years ago but it didnot pan out very well. someday ill get a pole barn and have someplace to continue my efforts. Finally was able to find and afford this yukon with nice towing package that is what i was looking for. Over the yeaars i tried keeping up with OBD1-2 and new tech and i learn fast with your younger techs help. I have a bunch of little things to get done on yukon yet but everything is now reliable with drive train and emissions. Thanks with past help EVERYONE.

I will have to ask some more questions on body parts as my Yukon is a rust bucket, from Cal. but rotted by the midwest weather.

I will post in exterior pages for help. I hope this message finds everyone in good health and good spirits.

Welcome from Oregon. I once built a 460 Ford for my jet boat back in the late 70’s with Super Cobra Jet heads and a Weiand 6-71 blower. That was a bad ass boat. I used to love that old school stuff but I probably couldn’t even get one to run anymore lol. Nice to have you here on the forum.
