Coupling S10 tranny to SBC

Hello,
I have question. I know that some of the 4.3 V6 S-10's came with standard transmission. Is it possible to hook that tranny up to a 267 SBC? Engine will me mostly stock so it shouldnt have a lot of power, and rear end will also be out of an S10 (maybe).




Thanks,


Mike

Yes it is. I run an NV3500 5spd from a 99 4.3l S10. It's a 1 piece tranny without a removable bellhousing. It has an integral slave/throwout bearing that slides over the input shafts collar, so there's a stainless braided line coming out of they bell that must be cut and modified to connect to a regular double flare style threaded clutch master. The 95-earlier trannies use the old stlye clutch-fork/throwout bearing with an external slave cyl. I use an early smallblock 168 tooth internal balance flywheel, with a 77 chevy 4x4 4spd clutch/plate (10 or 11) spline. I have run the big truck stagerd bolt starter, but it was touching the frame slightly, so I went with an 88 vette gear reduc. starter that I got used. That packed it in, so I now have a new 88 4.3l staggered bolt Wilson rebuilt, that has outlasted the warranty it came with, and has no probs. cranking an 11;1 smallblock. The trannies are pretty tough, But after 3.5 years,2 diffs, and countless U-joints and rear tires. I finally took out my 1-2 syncro.

At V8S10.org we are just talking about starting a new forum for people who are swapping S10 frames, and other S10 parts into other vehicles, as we know of a lot of people who are taking advantage of the size, strength, and interchangability of these little econo-trucks

Sorry for pluggin' another site

I had the same trans in my old '93 2wd full size. It held up for quite a bit of heavy use. The factory one tossed the 1-2 syncro at about 120,000 miles. And, I too had a problem with u-joints. It should be a decent bolt-in (remember, I said should be...) into just about any car. All you'll need is a big hammer and some duct tape...

In a while, Chet.

Well I really want the car to be standard, although there's not much space in a model T. Its either the S10 tranny or a Saginaw. Price comes first (I want CHEAP) and performance second. I've never done this so I'm hoping for a cheap and easy swap.

The main answer to the main question in this thread:
Yes the 4.3 V-6 shares the same bellhousing bolt pattern as the V-8 engines (so does the 200 and 229 V-6 engines for what it's worth).

Thanks guys, how about performance? Should it move a little T along nicely?

========= not the new 4200 straight 6 cylinder engine from GM. You probably knew that.
