    Going to register the Tahoe today after motor swap and go for a shakedown run. during swap I noticed the trans pan was a bit wet. looks to definitely be pan gasket. I ordered new gasket and filter kit and new fluid. I'll take care of that next weekend.

    What was the swap to? Any mods? Sure it was trans fluid not oil? Looks great

    Just a straight swap from my Suburban to Tahoe which I bought with a motor that had quite a few collapsed lifters at 158K, my Suburban ran great just body too rusty. no mods really. I did however installed a new Melling stock replacement oil pump and a new Cloyes Timing chain set. also all new gaskets and seals. definitely transmission fluid. my seals on the suburban motor were all dry. the only weep was oil cooler clock off plate gasket.

    yea pretty funny. My Z71 Suburban was same color, also barn doors and all same RPO drivetrain codes. just Tahoe is cheap grey cloth. I will miss the Z71 Leather.

    It's where you make one thread containing a compilation of everything you've done, as opposed to a scattering if steps that have to be read piece wise
