did gm put these two together?
yep my cousin had one in a 91 4x4. it is not a t-5, it is a nv3500? but it is not a t-5
I've got that combo in my 03.
I have two of these setups.
1- '93 T10 4.3L "Z" NV3500 X-Cab P/U
1- '92 T10 4.3L "Z" NV3500 Blazer
Very much so available, and a blast to drive /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
wel i just picked up an 87 ..prety ncie shape got it for 100 bucks.its got the 2.5 with a 4 speed i guess? i thought they were all 5's..but i guess not? i didnt actually go throguh all the gears to see..and the ball on the shifter isnt on it but he said it was a 4 speed.
2.5L and 4 speed came in 82-85 firebirds i know, but in s-10 hum dunno, look under truck at tranny see if is aluminum or iron case, aluminum is t5 and iron would be four speed, but i doubt it, but never know, mayb someone got bored and wanted four speed in it and had one laying around ?
i tell you what though, manual trans with these trucks as light as they are makes for some fun rippin and roarin /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
yea im excited about it..i mean its nothing speacial but ive never had a truck with a standerd in it..just my dads 64 impala which i get to take around the block a couple times in the summer lol..so itll be fun. i was doin a little research and ive seen some other trucks (s-10's) with the 4 cyl. and a 4 speed..matter fo fact one of them was posted about in like the first page of posts in this foumn...87 with a 4 banger and 4 spd.
big difference form 60s manual to the little 5 speeds in the s-series trucks
the s-series trucks trannies are top loaded and lighter and very light duty
the old 60s 4 speed were heavy and l;inkage type side loaded and stronger
whole new world really
then you have the big heavy iron truck top loaders with internal shift, whole new world again,a nd are my favorite manual trannies, the 420 and 435 and 465, etc.
also on a side note there are alot of 4.3L 5 speed '85-up trucks too, although i dont know what year 5 speed began in full size trucks, about 88 is when it should have started, with the 4500 tranny
oh i know!! lol..yea ur right..driving my dads car is totally different...even still i dont shift it that great.. but i hoped in my s-10 first time and took it around the block like i had been driving it for years..
