hi iam justin i have a 1985 s10 i bought it for like 1200 but the engin
was shot ... it was a 2.8l but to the main point i want to a 4.3l engin
in but the bell housing dont line up with the smaller tranny.
i was wondering if i could get a kit or some thing to make that tranny
work or do i hve to get a biger tranny for it... i got the 4.3 from an
auto but i want to make it standered but like i siad the trany i got i
think is to small so if any one got any sagetions it would be greatly
The tranny you need is a diffrent bolt pattern. The 4.3 uses the same bolt
pattern as the 8 cyl engines. For a 85 model everything you need should be
cheap and easy to find in the boneyard. Just make sure you snag the parts
from a s truck originally equipped with a 4.3. Also I would suggest not
buying the parts from the people who got 1200 out of a 85 S10 with a bad 2.8
