What I like about the first couple of posts in this thread is how everyone basically told the kid(at the time), take your ideas wad them up into a tight round ball and....you get the idea,lol. Tough crowd.

Digging this OLD thread .... Have a 76 Courier with an auto in the yard. Hoping to gather some **** over the winter for a spring time junk yard budget 302/c4 swap I have no issues with cutting, torching, hammering, or ghetto fabbing to make it fit.

Did some time on the google machine, and can't seem to find what auto tranny is in a 76 Courier stock??

I suck at the Internet

come on guys give the kid a break he's 23 and the first time he's worked on an engine! so now he's gonna get alot of practice : ) seriously though it can be done but your gonna have to build everything. I just put a cummins in my f250 not hard but time consuming the way to start is get an engine hoist and drop it in the hole and see what you have to do to make it fit and where your mounts are going to go and so forth

Alan, This is a zombie thread from 2001. This "kid" is now 35 and the first couple posts drove him off since his last post in here was 2001 with his total posts sits at 11. But, it would be interesting to see if he ever finished the little Courier and what direction he went in!

Probably not a popular option among this crowd, but I would have gone the rotary engine route if building this truck. All parts are there for drop in and you can get some serious horsepower out of those piston less little *******s!
