Hello All, I have an '82 Chevy C-10. It came stock with a 305 V-8, TH350, and 10-bolt rear end. The engine has since been replaced with a '75 or '76 350 V-8. It's completely stock, and is aching for a rebuild. The stock TH350 is still in the truck...has been rebuilt twice, and needs it again now. My dad did not take good care of this truck...now it's mine. Ok, now that you know about the truck, maybe someone can help me out. I plan on swapping the stock TH350 for a TH700R4. I need the OD for increased fuel economy. That's all well and good, but I plan on lifting this truck 3 inches and running 33-inch rubber. Stock size is 225/75R15, so about 28.5 inches. Anyway, I'm trying to figure out what gearing would be good to use with this set up? I'm going to rebuild the engine with the intent of getting slightly more HP and TQ, but the best MPG possible. I have NO idea what the stock gearing is. The RPO code simply says "GQ1", which deciphers to "Rear Axle-Standard Ratio(Non-Posi). So is that 2.73 or 3.08? ANy help would be greatly appritiated. I know this truck isn't 4-wheel drive, but I'm trying to learn all I can.
