Spend months finding this year and model. I wanted a 94. It's the first year of the electrical injection pump. It'll run on waste oil, kero, and just about anything else. I personally won't run anything higher than a 50/50 mix.

It's fully loaded and everything works. I'll be doing a lot to it. First thing was to pull the visor and ground effects

Rust ate the bed and fenders. Repop parts are cheap but I like oem. I bought a parts truck.

The parts truck has 3.73s. I'm thinking about ditching the 4.10s in the dually.

Nice!!!

I kind of like the sun visors, if not do love the roof lights, always wanted to put them on the Tahoe.

Man, wished I could find a parts truck for my dad's truck, I need so many parts.

What year is the parts truck?

Nice truck, too bad the rust got to it so bad. The parts truck looks like it has a nice body on it though.

The parts truck is a 96. It's got a few dents but that's so much easier to repair than rust.

I was hoping it was a 93, need a 4x4 tranny for dad's

The parts truck looks to be in pretty good shape, cab is decent.

Is it an auto or standard. If it's a auto it's most likely a 700r4 which shouldn't be hard to find one used. I know chevy/ gmc trucks were using them in 88. Also a tranny from a 4x4 S10 of roughly the same age will work for you too, I know the trans from the square body S10 will work. I'm not sure about the newer body style. The only difference between the S10 trans and a fullsize trans are minor outside things and the torque converter. It will bolt up and work fine, you just need to use the torque converter from the fullsize truck.

It's actually a 4L60E, 93 was first year to go full electronic. 93-94 will direct swap, 95 was a year all it's own as GM was prepping to switch to OBDII, it has it's year only shift solenoids, then 96 and up will swap. People may believe S10 trannies are the same, but they are light duty. I know plenty of people who have done V8 swap in S10's/Astros and tranny lasted short time. V8's need 6 shifting plates -vs- 5 in S10 trannies to make a druable tranny behind torque/HP.

I could pull it and my BIL will do rebuild for about $300-350. but truck is ate up with cancer and needs other stuff beside just tranny. I hate to do it, but maybe a parts truck at this point. I may pull motor, sell the rest.

Nice truck. On the diesels they had problems with the intake manifold gaskets. You might want to look into it.

 

Actually Tahoe some 94s (like mine) have the 95 year model 4l80e in them. The 94 was the best year for the GMT400. After that the gassers went to the Vortec system that didn't have the low end torque of the TBI models.

The 4L80E was introed in 91. You just need over 8600 GVW to get it.

I don't buy that one, Willie. A quick check of the GM parts catalog for a 93 Sub shows the 4L80 as an option. I don't recall them ever using the 4L60 in anything with 8 lug hubs.

HUmmm. When We were working on the Burb we had a hard time finding a wiring diagram. The GM dealership told us that the 4l80e in my truck didn't come out till 95. Maybe it is just something particular about my transmission.
