Re: GMC History: Think the 4.3L V6 is big?
Drey, look in old GMC trucks from the 60's. They started around 1960 and I beleive they went the way of the dodo bird in 1971. My latest siteing was the one I mentioned earlier in this post in a 1967 GMC K15.[img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img]
As Jeff said, they aren't high rpm power motors, but they make the power and torque of a factory carbed SBC, but they reach peak torque 1000rpm lower.[img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img] There are upgrades for them. Edelbrock made intakes for them that allowed you to bolt on a 4 barrel carb, but good luck finding one. It's been 20 years or more since Edelbrock made them.[img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]
Still be a cool engine to have.
Hey Jeff, same bolt pattern as the SBC's, BBC's, I6's, etc?
Yeah, it would fit great in the Tracker. In the back as I drove it home from where ever I found it. Although the tracker would probably be a bit nose high during the trip.[img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]
