I traded for a 1984 (body converted to 91 diesel) 4 spd slant six 4x4
shortbox. Will the transmissions bellhousing be swapable to the v8 ?.. I
wanna place a 318 in it but was not sure if the slant 6 setup with 4 spd
could be done. I have heard 4spd/5spd tranny's have removable bell housings
but that was only chev and ford.
THE slant six belhousing will NOT bolt to a V-8 You would have to get V-8
belhousing /clutch/flywheel to use your existing setup. The 4&5 sp trans
setups on the newer pickup's use a different trans type & could be adapted
if you got one from another 4X4.
WHy not just keep the bent six
is it really good ?.. I haven't driven it.. the motor is screwed but came
with one with 60,000miles on it..I thought go v8 but if the tower of power
LMFAO is the way to go.. then so be it.. Maybe she'll be better on gas too.
