    Can someone tell me what tranny and transfer case is behind a 6.2 diesel in an 89' 3/4 ton burb? My guess is its the same as my 90' K5...700R4/241.

    Thanks

    3/4 ton in 89 should be a TH400 tranny.

    that makes more sense, ...would the transfer case be a 205 then or is there something lighter (208?) that would have been used that year behind the TH400?

    Pretty sure the T-Case is a 241. Is on my 89' 1/2T. They used the same 241 just a different output shaft between the 1/2 and 3/4.


    So, it should have a TH400 with a 241 (nice!).

    Hey, Thanks. That would be cool. To bad I don't know squat about the 6.2, or diesels in general. Anyone have any pointers when looking at one of these?...

    I think I need to wander over to the GM Diesel forum now.:o

    make sure the harmonic balancer is in good shape. if it's got good glow plugs, it shouldn't take much effort to fire it up. if it's cold, don't be surprised by teh amount of smoke on start up - drive it around till the engines warm and you'll get a much better idea of what the engine is like. a 6.2 infront of a th400 is going to be slow.

    A 6.2 in front of anything is slow. Put 3.08:1 gears on it and it's really ... umm ... :rolleyes:

    Don't get me wrong, though, I looove mine :D

    an 89 will have a 6.2 with a th400 and a 241.
    mine wasn't slow it had 4.10s though.

    anything is slow if it has the wrong tires and gears for the engines power band
