    Trasmission Q's

    Did a search can't seem to find any solid info.

    I have a '86 Jimmy with 2.8 and a five speed and I am gettting ready to do a small block swap. The trans looks like a T5 but with a different bell housing.

    If this is the case what bellhousing am I going to need?

    Any help would be great

    bellhousing you can get from any v8 3rd gen F-body. I would def. atleast get it rebuilt before you run it too much with the v8. I know brad on here has broke his t-5 behind his 2.8 many of times. Im pretty sure that the v8 vs. the 2.8/3.4 versions have different gear ratios but not sure about anything else. If you break yours you might want to look for one that came from a v8 F-body.
