    recently i rolled the 1987 k5 of mine and destroyed it. i picked up a cab off a 1992 chevy k1500 and made a custom subframe to mount the cab to the blazer chassis. over the past weekend i converted the wiring harness over to the 92' style and was able to get it running again. Manual Tranny has also been on the agenda even before i rolled it. the is a k5 for sale right now with a std. in it but it does not have the hydraulic clutch. i want to know if any of the 1988-1998 c/k cabs ever came with a mech. linkage clutch. if not, what would be the best way to connect the pedal. the k5 is going for cheap so i'd really like to maek this work

    there was only a hydraulic clutch in the newer trucks. if you really want it to work, get a hydro bellhousing and slave cylinder for a 85-87,91 truck/burb/k5 and use that with the hydro pedal and mastercylinder from a 88-98 trucks.
