I've been driving this thing around for the last two days... Adding to the list:

Smokes like a diesel rolling coal anytime I coast to a stop
TCC not working
Spark is blowing out above 30% throttle as soon a boost builds.

But hey, the bluetooth radio works great, and it makes sweet turbo noises!

I figured out which 4x4 hub isn't working. The mechanism that is supposed to push the locking gear out isn't working at all on the one hub, the other is fine. I'm going to pull it apart and see if I can fix it. I had a few spares somewhere at one point, but I can't find them now. Otherwise I'd just replace it.

I fixed the misfire finally. It pulls pretty good now, far better than the 455 had done before. Also sorted out the trailer harness. Still working on the TCC lock situation. Looks like it's not getting power to the vac switch, the last stop before it goes to the trans, and I lost my wiring diagram for the custom circuit already.

Have you tried running it vacuum only with a vacuum block? just so that less components to fail.

I'm on the fence right now about the transmission that's in there anyway. There were a few little things about how everything works together that I just don't like.

I had to change from a shift linkage to a cable shifter. Not a huge problem, except that in doing so the resulting change in lever arms between the column and the trans means that my gear indicator, which I had to go out of my way to also replace, doesn't line up anymore. Also, the amount of rotation on the shifter shaft is different, so my neutral safety switch only lines up right in park - and the reverse lights illuminate in D.

The TCC is combination 4x4, vac, brake, and internal pressure switch controlled. I'm using the good ol' series 2 PCM, and I'd much rather have the PCM control it. Which leads me to the 'I need a different transmission' conclusion. I'm thinking about grabbing a much newer 4l65e, assuming of course I can find one with the ouput shaft to match the transfer case I have - or grab a complete transmission and transfer case from a suburban (np241 passenger drop, should bolt right into my truck). Of course, there's always the NV4500 as well, the 5-speed manual beast, which means I don't need any of the aforementioned crap...

With the local u-pull having sales on transmissions ($50 each) it really stacks the deck against screwing around with the 700r4 for this build. But I'm going to wait until I get the tune and some other things dialed in before I make that decision.

Random, hey I tried to do a pull, but then somebody decided to run the light and I had to lift, video:

Also, ignore the 4x4 auto hub clicking noises...

The original 350 - long gone, probably turned into body panels for a prius.
The olds 455- electric motors in 6 Teslas, and the rest went to a nuclear fuel rod.
The first Buick 455 - some dude bought it for a rebuild
The second Buick 455 - collecting dust in my garage
