    So did some research on the engine I have and it's an lm7 which I guess is part of the Ls family, I also found an article that outlines exactly what I am going to do http://www.superchevy.com/how-to/eng...ped-ls-engine/

    Now I have a few questions, I am following this to suit just about. Just had a question regarding the oil pan, seems these guys just like to rock a lot of Holley, and I was wondering if that oil pan was necessary, or if I could get one for an lm7 out of an 01 camaro and if that would clear the crossmember for the skylark?

    Another question was

    i would like to use the stock serpentine system. In which case I take it I would need to buy the 01 Tahoe alternator?
    I was wondering if anyone had a link on how to wire a late model alternator into a classic gm?
    (72 skylark)

    I was also wondering what If I could use the 01 Tahoe power steer steering pump, and retrofit that into the skylark? If not, what power steering pump should I use, and will it mount to the stock serpentine system?

    Thank you very much for the time

    Serpentine is better than V belt IMHO. Why are you trying to do away with it?

    So 36 Sedan, do I understand that everything in your post below the long line of asterisk's was copied and pasted from another forum, and he's not asking anything here?

    Efregoso(92), in case you come back, congratulations are in order for figuring out that you have the LM7 engine, which is a GenIII SBC package. Hopefully you got the ECU and wiring harness with the engine that you bought, and if you can also get the tranny from the Tahoe you'll be in a lot better shape for an easier overall swap. If you didn't get the ECU and harness your costs just went up quite a bit, unless you decide to abandon the computer and build for a carb, which I think is a step backwards (just my opinion).

    It would still be great if you can post some pictures of your engine & your Skylark, just for grins, should you choose to continue here. Like you've been told elsewhere, there are several sites dedicated to LS swaps out there.
