The last two days I spent helping Smokey swap the motor and Trans in his 48 gmc panel truck. He has about 800,000 miles on this and has owned it for 40 years. He told me I am the only one besides him to ever work on it since he owned it.
He had a tired old 327 and a power glide in it and we put in a '92 TBI sbc and 4l80 Trans. He's going efi as well.
Smokey is one of te sharpest old guys I know. He raced Indians for many years and still builds crazy Indian race motors. People abuse the word hero these days, but this guy is one. Thanks for all you've taught me smokey.
