Ok I am getting a 1985 chevy fullsize jimmy with a SMC465/NP203 fully running... 305 motor, etc.... anyhow... I have been able to get this for about 4 months now but have been not on my top to bother... well my tranny is slipping.. dont know if it is clutch or what... also something doesnt seem right with the linkage.. on a bad angle and stuff... so I just called my bud and asked him to look at the linkage for me and he said.... " It will be different..... it has a HYDRAULIC CLUTCH!!!!!!" so I told him I will take it next week. Just need time to cleanout my garage to make room for it during the teardown... so will a 1985 setup fit right into my 78? also my trans dropps out of second... L, 1, 2 if I dont hold it in there.. so needs a rebuild anyway.... so all this for a measly... Buck.... YUP $100!!!!!! how do we say that???? won hundred dollars!!!!!!
