Re: Best P'up Diesel Engine Transplant Recipient

No Chevy LUV truck is in the equation on this but I I do know some parts cross over between the brands. My 81 matches the 87 body I bought .. .. only superficial trim seems different. I am s...

Re: 81 Diesel 5 speed Transmssion Replacement or Parts

I have a question.. are the Isuzu trucks virtually the same into the 90's (before GM versions) compatible, Found a 92 truck 2.3 5 speed , short bed.. maybe potential diesel/driveline swap?? I've been under the impression as long as its a true Isuzu it can be a direct driveline swap.. (with a few twe...

So that would normally mean a counter shaft or bearing issue.. Yes I've checked and changed oil a few times.. C...
