Hey everybody I purchased an 81 k15 with a 350, 4 spd manual and a 208c wich was rough to look at but has potential. A few months ago i came across another 1981 but this time a k25, 350, auto and a 208 for a price i couldnt turn down, the old guy said it was a different motor and transmission put in a few years ago but couldnt remember anymore details. Im still in the process of identifying the parts on there.

I am planning on taking out the auto and putting in the manual but running into some setbacks with removal of the manual transmission. The clutch pedal seems to be bolted in a few places in the dash and I'm not certain that those are even in my other truck...
The other issue is the bracket on the frame that the clutch connects to, its not on the other truck and it appears that ill need to remove it with a grinder, trace, drill and bolt it into the knew one.

Anyone have some helpful hints lol

Thank you!

I have a 78 3/4 ton, the box floor is getting bad and I found a newer box at a good price. Question is I have dual tanks and the caps are round with no doors. The box I am looking at I am told is a 79 and it has dual square doors. Are the locations in the same spot and what would I have to do to make it work? Thanks.

Newbie to the forum: I am contemplating a 350 motor swap given that "Old Blue"-- blew a head gasket leaving NJ 2 weeks ago. All things considered, rather than replacing the head gasket / possible warped heads etc, an engine swap seems simpler/quicker.  I have found another 350 motor mated to a THM350 which came out of an 86 C20. I am awaiting confirmation on whether I have a THM350 or 400 Tranny.  I have gotten different answers so what was the Original Equipment for an 86 C20 2wd with a 350ci Chev?

I have an apparent donor sedan engine already changed out by a former owner owing to some clamped off emission lines around the manifold. Not having the truck here in Tennessee, It is a guess as to what is in it now. Do I have any issues if I mix or match the THM 350 vs the 400?  I believe I have a 2 piece drive shaft.

 That said--As long as I am pulling the engine, I thought I might look upgrade the 3 speed for a 4 speed.
 I pull the occasional heavy trailer but would like better gas mileage. What are my options?  4-speed Turbo Hydra-Matic 700R4 or ?  What 4 speed could I be looking for and will I also need a different driveshaft?

Any advice on what to look out for is welcomed.

I just bought a 1985 C30 dually with a flatbed, I want to put the original bed to go on it but have been told if the truck was ordered without a bed and the flatbed was installed later that the rai;s were different.......is this true?
