    What years, if any was a hydralic cluth setup used on the 4 spd? I am debating doing a swap into my suburban and would prefer to stay away from manual linkages, I never have luck with them.
    Thanks in advance,
    Mike

    The hydraulic clutch system came out in 1986 and was used on the 86-88 Trucks, 86-91 Blazer and Suburbans equipped with the 465 4 speed tranny. I hope this helps.

    I may be slow, but I sure am fat!

    Thanks, Do you remember about how much the parts ran ya from the dealer, It's pretty easy and cheap enough to get the transmisson and t-case but I have not had luck finding hydro bellhouseing and such.
    Thanks again ,
    Mike

    i gave this info to someone on here and they found the parts new online for 1/3 what i paid.
    i am in canada and paid 'walk in the door' price at a rural chev dealer over $300cdn for the bellhousing alone. all of these are junk yard items for sure. 85-87 pickup w sm465. the trans and tcase are no different i am using my original 77s.
    i have an 87 2wdr auto cab so it was a simple drill at the indents job for me, then weld up the hidious holes we cut in the floor for the mech linkage
