I agree with Darrel but it is good. If right price and date I would use it.

I know the yoke is different but I think the shaft will work.

It is not gunk. They used some tar like sealer that works really well. Never tried it but a heat gun might help.

Guys had them a while. I might be in Roanoke next week. Might call and go by. If he has hoods maybe? I will be in my truck might see what he wants for them now.

Drive it further. You want the oil to get hot and thin out to work up into the sliders and inside the brass rings. If you stick to short trips it could take a while but one long trip should do it. Even in neutral with clutch out most parts are rotating.

Something I did not know. Is this a way we could identify a 302 assembled? With or without the balancer on. Maybe post some pics.

You think someday an interior other than gray or tan in a car produced in this decade might be "rare"

I think what is trending today is anything "different". So many muscle cars have black interiors and are red or blue that something different just catches your eye. My 6 cars are 6 for 6, all black interiors. My next one will be "different"

I think you are overdoing it. Just drain it overnight, put the 90 weight in it and try it. Drive it through the gears when you do and let the oil get up in all the sliders,ect.

My L78 69 has one. Never looked at the mount but I will now. It was there in pictures from 77 and looks like the other one.

If it was mine I would go for it, would not invest a lot in the build but try it.

Not sure about the L79 but most stock GM covers will fit upside down and the rockers will rub. Set the on a flat surface and you can see the angle. Ask me how I know?

Couple hundred miles just enough to dilute or wash off the old lube from the gears. You know what to do but the symptoms sound like low lube level.
