Well no matter how you do it when you have the engine out be sure to put a front trans seal in it. ROY

My trans does not appear to be leaking at the input shaft. Is this a comont place for them to start leaking? Mine has always leaked out the speedo cable. No one has been able to fix it according to my Father-inlaw. I myself have never tried. Any advise on how to correct this would be greatly appreciated. I am going to install a new slave cylinder, throwout bearing, and pilot bushing while the trans is out. My clutch seems in good condition. It will stall the truck when I try to start out in 3-5th. Second can be started but it must be on flat. My truck was ordered with an extra low gear by the origonal owner. I guess he had a small boat.
Is there anything I should watch for when I take the clutch apart? I am going to tear down the motor tonight and figure out what parts I am going to need to do this. I imagine that the Master rebuild kit will have everything in it i need. Have you ever found a good way to properly and permanently seal the intake. Everyone seems to be concerned about this?

You can swap out the 2.8 for a 3.4 - bolt for bolt replacement - GM can even fax an article on everything that needs to be done. I did this to a Camaro - its great. Loose the 2.8.

You can also find other articles on the web about replacing the 2.8 with a 3.4.

Good luck!

If you don't have to have the truck for a day or two, I would pull the engine and tear it down first. Theres nothing more discusting than being elbow deep in greese, and then realizing your going to have to order an undersized set of berrings <img src="confused.gif" border="0">
