Not quite a P'up... Diesel Chevette!

Postby johnklos » Sun Feb 11, 2018 5:01 pm

Hi, all,

This site has all sorts of wonderful information with great people helping each other. I hope I can give back even a tiny bit of what I've already learned.

While I don't have a P'up, I do have a beautiful Isuzu 4FB1 engine and five speed in a Chevy Chevette that now has more than 700,000 miles on it. At least the transmission, I think, came from a P'up! Isuzu certainly knows how to make long lasting engines.

I've recently been trying to find more resources for cross-referencing parts and suitable replacements, and this seems like a good place to share. I hope to make it easier for others to find suitable replacement parts and accessories, too :)

Here's a picture from a cross-country trip:

Welcome to the site! 700k? Wow. Amazing. I remember back in 1983 I helped a guy pull the transmission out of a chevette diesel.
Currently P'up-less, but keeping my eyes open for a good deal
