Ok. I went the other way .. I went straight 6 to V8 302.. rule 1: You cant use a fly wheel from an 8 to a 6 bc of the balance. if ya get an automatic 6 cyl combo,, youll need the 6 cyl chassis mounts bc the V8 is way to low.. and you'll have to rewire the dura spark to be a 6 cyl.. Its a pain.. But otherwise, No big deal

Were do i get gmc 1986 vandora 3500 motor mount diagrams

I did this a long time ago. I remember hat the mounts were the same. Going from a v6 to v8, they stayed the same. Going to a straight six, the mounts had to be flipped over. They kept the mounts the same for years. They changed the mounting hole on the block to fit the mount.

How to take a manual transmission out of a chevy 1500

super easy even a novice mechanic can have one out in a little over an hour, lift it in the air about as high as you can get it put jack stands under it
disconnect the drive shaft
loosen the exhaust, doesnt need to come off
remove the starter
remove the slave cylinder
remove the shifter from the top 4 screws and 4x8mm bolts and 1x10mm bolt holding the wires running to the trans.
remove the bolts that connect the motor to the trans there are 6 really that hold it with several other nuts on top holding wires and such.
remove the 4 bolts that hold the crossmember and the bolt to the trans on the crossmember,
stick your jack underneath the trans and remove the crossmember. pull the trans straight back and lower. even without the right tools you can have this done in about 30min

The battery keeps dying

First i would back check all of the power wires and make sure they haven't melted. if all your wires are okay then i would get your alternator checked. If your alternator is bad then your motor is running straight of your battery and it won't hold charge for very long.

Transmission fluid stick

No the manual transmisson does not have a stick. on the transmisson their are two plugs. One for draining and one for filling. In order to check the fluid, pull the higher plug out and feel with a finger in that hole for fluid. To set the level to the correct level you would need to drain and refill the trans. If no leaks are present you should be OK
