    I'm looking at a tranny that is out of a 82 Chevy 1/2ton diesel with a np208 behind it. Would it bolt up to my 91 K5 with gasoline 350 and a np241?
    Thanks,
    Nate

    The bellhousing will bolt up but you might need a new converter /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif <font color="blue"> </font>

    it would bolt up but you would need a different torque converter as this is 27 spline and your old is 30. the diesel converter has a lower stall rating. you will have to change the governer also.

    i would stay away from the older 700r4. 82 was the first year and they had way to many problems.

    preaty much any 4x4 700r4 will bolt up, unless someone changed the output shaft to fit a 205 or 203.

    New question. Would a 700r4 off a 4.3L S10 Blazer swap in?
