my truck got mashed. will parts fit on another?

I tried to get pics, but no luck.
my ole 89' c1500 was a great truck. it died at 335,000 miles on it. it has never been towed, pushed, or pulled since ive owned in the last 12 yrs and 150,000 miles. well, until a 2005 jeep Cherokee rear ended it at a dead stop. but it still was able to get out of traffic and drive up on the trailer under its own power.
anyway, the rear end was completely rebuilt, including all new brake parts and hose, and installed in January.
in feb. I had all new ball joints, both coil springs, all control arm bushins and tie rod ends replaced. id say there are less then 5000 miles on these new parts
the 89' c1500 is a Silverado with a stock 305 tbi, 700r4 with a 2000 stall converter, and a gm 8.5" open rear with 4.56 gears.
I found, bought, a running, drivable 94' c1500 Cheyenne, 248,000 miles with a stock 305 tbi, nv3500 trans, 8.5" rear with a 3.42 gear. I think it has some kinda locking diff in it.
the 94 drives very well as is.
will all the new parts from the 89' fit on the 94' ???? im thinkin yes, but don't wanna pull em off if they don't fit


i'll be replacing the 94' 305, its got a bottem end knock at 2500 rpm, with the 89' 305.
thx rick

Yes same trucks minus some electrical differences. The 94 probably has a g80 gov lock in it.

just do what I did and source an F44 package 9.5" 14 bolt ( 1500HD ). I bought my '95 with a blown axle one mile from my house. limped it in 4x4 with a tied up driveshaft in 4x4 home for $800 in pretty mint condition with 140k miles. I got the axle from the local yard, like $250. then sourced the bottom plates and u bolts needed from the dealer. I coulda used lifted 4x4 stuff to save money but I was still under $2,400 for a truck that booked well over $3,500 and I could have sold for $4k. I drove it trouble free minus a fuel pump and a new clutch at 160k due to the throwout bearing going. soon after I got bored with it, and actually gave it to someone who needed it more than I did since I had bought a new truck

I've got 2 other 8.5" gm rears for this truck. the original that was in my 89' has a 3.42 in it, its open. there was nothing wrong with it when I pulled it back in January. no leaks and good brakes, a set of shoes wouldn't hurt.
then the rear that's under the 89' now has all new parts in it. seems like I pulled it out of a 94' or 95' SCLWB truck. but the 4.56 gear I had installed in it, will kill this knocking 305 sooner. I better wait till I get the 89' motor changed over, before putting it under this truck. it should be fun with the 5 speed tranny.

yea, between 1989 and 1994 a lot is different in the wiring. gauges, sensor wiring for gauges ( swapping not plug and play ), '89 uses a spark control module on the engine, 1994 has it in the ECU. but the trucks themselves and all of the hard parts swap

ok. since i'll be putting the 89' 305 tbi in the 94', it will work, but I may have to change some or all the sensor's. ok I got that. but what about the computer???? I know for sure the 89' has the 7747 computer. the 94' computer has different #'s on it, but I know its not 7747. is there a difference in the computer's. is one best????


I was hoping to use all the sensors and the computer from the 89' because I know how well it runs. the only sensor I have every replaced was the o2, because the wire was broke, that was 12 yrs ago. no check engine light on, even the way it sits all mushed up. no check light on the 94' either, well so far anyway. I've only put about 250 miles on it since last week.


ah........ maybe because of the 5 speed in the 94' ????? the computer is different.
I gotta do more research.
thx again.

the ECU and wiring harnesses are not interchangable unless you swap everything including the gauge cluster. things like the O2 sensors, coolant, knock sensors ect.. are all the same. you could verify that pretty easy. I would use the 1994 intake/ throttle body just because the truck knows it in case theres injector impedence differences ( I dont think so ), but the rest of the sensors should swap

i see the TPS is different part# according to parts site.
I gotta put new intake mani gaskets on the 89' anyway, so I'll just use the 94' intake/ throttle body on it, as you mentioned. everything else, seems to be the same and should be a fairly easy swap.
I notice the exhaust y pipe on the 89' is bigger dia. then the 94'. I hope I can use it instead of that small 1 7/8" or 2" on the 94'. if it clears the nv3500????. they both exit 2.5", but the 89' sounds so much better. I got the same thrush 28" long with 2.5" inlet/outlet glasspack, closest to the axel as possible, no cat, but there is a very noticeable exhaust tone on the 89'.
I'm hoping not to break those exhaust manifold outlet bolts. I've been sprayin pb blaster on them for the last 3 days.

I broke them on mine when the fluted end on the passanger side collapsed forcing me to replace the Y pipe. I bought the cheap Ebay headers. I think they were $150 but are good stainless headers. Y pipe was not special for the 5spd as I remember.

it they break, I will probly get headers that bolt to the stock y pipe. true duals exhaust is very expensive on these truck. im not gonna put that poser, half arsh dual bs on the truck, that 2 into 1 into 2 crap, its useless IMO.
hows the ebay headers holdin up??? easy to get plugs out??? blowing gaskets??? length and dia. of primaries???? paint??? im not concerned about pretty. its a dd, not a garage queen.

Yep, stock replacement shorty headers is what they were. Bolt right up. And from there back was all stock even muffler. I did it cause it was cheaper than 2 replacement manifolds.

I got them bolts out without breaking any.
I got the engine and tranny ready to be pulled. removed the rad support, pulled the water pump, acc. brackets, and timing cover. the old link chain has 1/2" or more play in it, its got gm marked on the cam gear. I bet its the original timing set.
I noticed it still has the seals on the intake manifold front and back. the intake, head, and exhaust bolts look to have no tool marks on them at all. I don't think its ever been opened up.
the only oil leak it has ever had, since I've owned it anyway, was the oil sender behind the dizzy. I replaced it a couple years ago.
there is major sludge build up under the timing cover. I know if I start cleanin, scraping it off, it'll be in the cam, I best leave the sludge alone.
I plan on replacing the intake gaskets, timing set, oil pump, and dizzy gear. throw it in the 94' and get back to truckin, lol
