whats "warmed over to you?" I was actually pretty suprised how well the little v6 gets my truck around.. better than a 305 anyways.

|0trbo4myCHEVUICK||Oh yeah thats a relief, no custom driveshaft.. Still gotta find one at pick n pull that will work, the current is too long.|

Be sure to use the washer/spacers between the flexplate and torque converter to space it properly to compensate for the adapter thickness. That should be covered in the instructions.

|0trbo4myCHEVUICK||thx cobalt.. went with your advice and got the stock tc.. sure it'l work out! Am i gonna have to get a custom driveshaft? Is there any way to make up for the 1/8" adapter plate? grind the yoke down?|

|cobalt327||Fluid totally mixes/circulates throughout the trans and TC.|

|0trbo4myCHEVUICK||going to the junk yard tomorrow to hunt a yoke and maybe a driveshaft??|

|0trbo4myCHEVUICK||yes i bought a chevy to BOP bolt pattern adapter. its 1/8" thick.. i still havent figured out what im going to do about a driveshaft... got new trans cooler with fan from jegs yesterday with the adapter plate, dipstick and new champion 2 core radi. Couldn't stand to let my new trans drink fluid from the stock cooler. I should be getting the summit 17 - 2000 converter tomorrow as well! Does the fluid that you put in the converter stay in the converter? what about 50/50 lucas n fluid in the converter? Or does it all just mix? I already mix two bottles with my fluid changes..|

Do you have an adapter plate to mate the GM truck trans up to the BOP bolt pattern?
Would that 30 series trans possibly use a bolt on yoke?

My 85 C10 has 3.73 rear , 305/ th350 c , performer cam/intake ,vortec 906 heads shaved, 100 headers, stock qjet, and a dynamic 3000 stall. Vortec heads and the stall add so much to the performance. The launch is very strong and governor recalibrated for 5200 shifts. This makes for a dependable fun utility vehicle.
A higher stall can really get you going for the hole and not sacrifice a thing.

|0trbo4myCHEVUICK||thanks! Does anyone know if there is a truck with the driveshaft I need? Shouldnt I beable to find a truck with a th400, yank the shaft and yoke, shift linkage and roll? As long as the truck is single cab and regular sized bed like mine?|
