Hello, all. Remember the S-10 with the 2.8 I told you about for cheap. Well, I just got it home, and its got quite a few options, including 4.11s, 20 gallon tank, full skidplates, inter. wipers, cruise, tilt, air, HD shocks. I was very surprised to see these gears in a 2.8/5 speed truck. Even with 31x10.50x15s I had to shift to 5th at 40 to keep the engine from over-revving. The truck is surprisingly rust free, with some trail damage. No wonder its on its 3rd engine!
WHat suggestions for a new engine do you have, a 3.4? Not bad for $500 eh?
The engines got a little blowby and a rod starting to knock a little, but still runs & drives. I've gotta get a starter and a wheel stud and a few other little things, but its 90% like it was in 85.
