Haven’t been here for a while and my original log was archived so now doing a new build log. Few years back I got ahold of a 6.2 to swamp into any of my projects. After new laws with smog I decided to Swap the 6.2 into the OBS. 

so this week is got the engine on the hoist and has issues with the bolt fit the stand. Today I got the bolts and started to put in work.. after taking the oil pan I found no broken rods or pistons and it spins freely. I might remove a few caps to see if the bearing are okay or possibly even just replace them since I’m already taking it apart. I already have almost everything for the swap just need the mounts which I’m going with dirty dingo. The transmission which will be a 4l80E. And a few front accessories. For alternator I already have a mechman 250 hairpin. I will keep updating here on a weekly based

Here is a video of the crank spinning so it’s a good thing I may not need a crank or rods and even good to o me the block is not internally broken per the reputation these 6.2 have with broken rod and piston

It’s not a full stock build. It’s going to get camed and possibly force induction in the future. First trying to get the truck running by December when the none op is up for renewal

Found the issue with the engine. It had a bent pushrod. No damages to the piston or valve so who knows how it bent. Time to upgrade to hardened pushrods

This thing is not letting me post more picture. But the engine is now being assembled. Got the cam in today and the bottom end. I might get studs for the heads and need to order the pushrods to start putting the top end on
