Powerplant, Driveline, and Braking / Duramax discussion: LB7
« on: July 18, 2019, 05:55:30 AM »
There are a lot of LB7s that have gone 300k. Most on a couple of sets of injectors.  CP3 is fine and head gaskets aren’t the best if you start increasing cylinder pressures (tune and turbo). Everyone moves to the newer gaskets when building. (The “C” gaskets IIRC)

SAC injectors may be the answer but given the labor costs to replace injectors when they are under the valve covers, if you are starting from scratch it’s easier and cheaper to run the LLY heads where injectors are not known to be a problem.

Yes you will easily be in the 10k range in parts alone. My transmission was $6k installed all by itself.

But in the end you have a lifetime vehicle and for much less than the $70-$80k for a brand new gas burb

I’m not sure if you can run a native 6 speed trans off the 5 speed tcm. Bet Mike L would know. For sure when Don has his built they can convert it. That’s the one thing I wish I had done when I got mine built

I believe the issue Don is going to confront is the communication protocol of the early DMax. If it were 04+ (iirc) he could swap pretty much anything into it.

He can build whatever block he likes but he will need to use the LB7 ecm/tcm/ficm to drive it and that’s why the LLY headed motor is the best compromise since the LB7 ficm is known to be able to reliably drive the LLY injectors and conversion harnesses are available.

There is nothing wrong with the LB7 blocks. The weak link is the con rods.  ARP studs and  wagler street rods will hold whatever he’d want the power level to be in the burb.

And Don, you can put a six speed behind an LB7. And for what you’ll be running it would need to be built anyway.

Made the trip hauling the empty 20ft trailer.  Ran fine at 75-80.  Trac bars are a bit noisy under braking since i had them loaded for acceleration.  I remember why I took them off.  But I can get on it now with out axle wrap.  Will likely get shackle flip brackets soon and maybe retire the bars

Well. Took it for a 20 mile drive. No catastrophic failure and no unusual gear whine. Accelerating  or coasting. If anything it seems quieter.

And yes it is aggressive. Chirps the inside tire on tight turns.

Put the trac bars back on. Just in case. ;-)

About to make the 135 mile trip home.

Living vicariously through Don

I’ll reiterate here again Don. It will be easier to swap an LB7 with LLY heads  the LB7 ficm will run the LLY injectors. 

It’s a tried true and proven concept with no learning curve for you.

Wagler rods and arp studs top and bottom and you can make 900 hp with no worries

JR is right. Get you a donor truck like a rollover or rear end accident

Now I’m completely freaked out about the bolts and I may regret it but I’m going to power forward and trust it will hold together or by the time it doesn’t I’ll have a 12v project completed and this one can sit in the shop a while.

I just changed the oil and filter in the wife’s van and cabin filter and air filter and had the tires balanced and rotated at discount this morning.

First time I’d ever been first to arrive at discount tire. Small town shops are not nearly as busy as the ones in Houston. I was in and out in 25 minutes.

So. I had to clean all the old thread locked off the old threads and my Hf press had a bad jack. So a long trip to HF and got an air over hydraulic 20 ton jack and a bench grinder with a wire wheel.

Fought the ring for a while until I remembered to stick the ring hear in the oven. Then how to torque....


Pressed the carrier between two plates on the press and voila.  Easy peazy.


So got it cleaned and back in place and now I just need to adjust the side load on the carrier (?? Not sure how) and then set the backlash.

It’s at about 3 thou at the moment so I’ll have to move it a hair once I get the side load figured out.

Well, As usual, I think I don't have all the stuff I need to finish the project.  I measured backlash best I could, and I continually get about 5 thou although that seems tight per the specs on line.  But all the stuff in there looks good and it has 180+k miles on it.

I need a thread chaser for the bolts and holes in the ring gear to get all the threadlocker out and I need to dig out my bearing install cups and see if I have the right size

aaaannnnd my jack on the 20t HF press is busted....

So today I did some drivers ed and then painted and installed the railing in the casita and adjusted the sliding shower door so it would stay closed easier.

And now I’m about to go out and get started on a long overdue project to install that Grizzly locker in the Bus....
