    hi, ive got a 1983 K5 with a SM465 and NP205 and when i put it in reverse, it shudders horribly then once in a while it wont then next time it will. I just had the clutch redone (including flywheel resurfacing). All other gears are fine, anby ideas as to what this could be?

    thanks

    You could be missing a (couple?) gear teeth. Other than that, it's all gear drive so there should be no way for anything to slip or move (unlike clutched systems).

    I'm no brake expert, but I know drum brakes self-adjust when you are going in reverse. Could it have something to do with that?

    Most likely you have a bad motor mount or tranny mount.

    its the way your letting the clutch out/ applying the gas, all standards do this if you are a little off... thats why it only happens only sometimes
