I bought a 200 s10 extreme and after that i had realized that i was missing a shock that goes from the right side of the rear axle forward. then my drive shaft failed and has to be replaced. now is there a connection between these two or does one have to be fixed before the other and where can i get a new drive shaft.

Re: CHEVY S10 ENGINE SWAP carl Jones 2-17-07  
I have an 89 Chevy s 10. IT had a 4 cylinder and it went bad and someone put another wrong 4 cylinder in there. One month later it went bad. I only have access to a Chevy 305. The truck is a 5 speed, but I bought an engine and transmission. I was told I could change the bell housing and use my manual transmission..... Is this true? Is it expensive? How much is the cross-over kit and motor mounts. Can I buy this stuff at a junk yard. Please help - I am on disability an poor as hell, help.... Is their an inexpensive way of doing this?
Thank you,

Carl Jones

Re: CHEVY S10 ENGINE SWAP chris 8-14-07  
I have a 95 gmc jimmy 4.3 with cpi
is it possable to install a 350 in place of the 4.3 and get the odb11 to work.
i was thinking that if i got a early 90 350 from a fullsize pickup with tbi and had the computer flashed or found one from another truck could i get this to work. if any one has any info on this please e-mail me at cvisockis@hotmail.com
Re: CHEVY S10 ENGINE SWAP Jeff 8-8-07  
Listen closely....The SBC will bolt up to the stock mounts, but it requires about 4 inches of depth when falling in behind the firewall. So, you have to trim out part of the FW, AND beef up the front suspension, like Air bags, lol, because the 350 weighs in a considerable amount more than the 6 Cyl. Also, be prepared to move the rad ahead an inch or two to leave clearance for the spindles, water pump ect,.....

Re: CHEVY S10 ENGINE SWAP Joe 7-24-07  
I have a 1984 s10 - 4 Wheel drive. There is no engine in it. Once, there was a 350 in it, but now there is nothing. What engines will bolt to the transmission that is already there and what wiring will have to be done? I have 3 different 4.3 V-6 engines. (all 3 TBI - 1986 complete engine; 1987 block, heads, tbi intake; 1991 complete engine)I would entertain a trade for a 4 or 6 cyl carburated complete engine to fit my truck. I would appreciate any info available!!!!!!!

Re: CHEVY S10 ENGINE SWAP Phil Feinstein 3-21-05  
Very Kewl. Thanks Bryan!
Re: CHEVY S10 ENGINE SWAP Bryan 3-20-05  
It will bolt right in. its the same block the tranny is the same mounting also however it is a 700R4 which is non electric and uses a TV cable to shift the 96 vortec uses a 4L60E which is the same tranny but the shifts are controlled by the ecm not by a cable.The 89 4.3 was a tbi the newer vortec is a cpi and will require a better fuel pump(more psi) and will require 4 o2sensors (89 only has one).You will need a complete wiring harness from 96 or equivalent and the ecm also from same.So basically just your tranny will not work other than that its fairly simple if you have the right tools. check out www.blazinlow.com for lots of engine swap info. I have a tbi 5.7 in my 91 s15 jimmy that was pretty much bolt in and plug and play.

Re: CHEVY S10 ENGINE SWAP Phil Feinstein 3-8-05  
IS THIS SWAP SOMETHING A BACKYARD MECHANIC CAN DO?

Yes, if they have the correct tools to do the job safely and have experiance with EFI and replaceing motors and fabricating brackets and wiring harnesses. And using a steel rule.

WILL IT BOLT RIGHT IN?

I doubt it. If the block is the same the motor mounts should match, but you're talking about 7 years difference, so I wouldn't attempt this thinking that it will bolt up without any mods.

WHAT ABOUT SENSORS & ELECTRONICS?

You will have more for the 1996 fuel system (OBD2) than what came with your truck originally (OBD1). The harness for all these sensors is seperate from the body harness, so it could be removed and then re-installed in the S-10. You should invest in wiring diagrams for both the donor and the receipiant.

WILL IT FIT MY '89 TRANNY?

Again, I doubt it. You'd be better off pulling the tranny from the same donor that you got the engine and fuel system out of.

BTW: TYPING IN ALL CAPS IS CONSIDERED SHOUTING. Just a friendly reminder ;-)

Re: CHEVY S10 ENGINE SWAP jacob 8-24-05  
I swapped a 400 cuin into my 87 s10 and into a 2002 s10 extreme and the swap itself is very easy especially now since there a lots of aftermarket parts aviable. you should be able to get most of your parts from jegs.

Hey i have a 89 chevy s10 4x4 and the motor froze. me and some buddies decided to put a 350 in it. so we got sponsered by my buddy and started the project. we started by cutting out the firewall and the 350 bolted right up to the stock mounts. after that we put a 2 wheel drive tranny to and switched out the rearend. it was going all smooth until i got into some trouble with money, and we scrapped out the s10 and keeped the engine. and now im rebuilding the engine to put it into somthing else.

3.8 L out of a 96-02 camaro/fire bird reed 9-21-11  
I was looking into swaping a 3.8 L into a 96 S10 blazer I'm hoping to be able to find a RWD engine because it just seems like that would be the easiest bet. I'm not sure what I will need for this swap i.e. engine mount, trans, frame cross members, pretty much anything. By the way im looking to do this in a 4 x 4 with a solid front axel swap after the engine swap. Or maybe it would be easier to put the solid axel first.

Yes you can swap a 4.3 engine to a 305 or a 350, i think someone would be stupid to put a 350 instead of a 305 because you get more power from a 305 if your looking for balls in your truck

Re: CHEVY S10 ENGINE SWAP travis ratcliffe 5-21-06  
I have had both a 4.3 and 2.8 and the 4.3 gets better gas mileage so definetely dont go with the 2.8 i was talkin to a guy bout a swap with a LT1 and he said that he got 22 mpg instead of the 16 with the 4.3 so i would consider going with something like a 350 thats what im going to do get back at me good luck with it
Re: CHEVY S10 ENGINE SWAP Mack 8-19-06  
The answer to your Question is (YES)...
You will have to run a 2 to 4 inch Cowell hood in order to have the room for the A/C compresser. I have a 1992 S10 Tahoe, With a 383 stroker. It has the Air as well. I also had to run the hood to make room for the cold air induction. The other is the motor mounts. I would spare no expense on the motor mounts, for the simple fact is that you will weaken the strength of the mount, possibly cause major damage if a malfunction were to occur.

Re: CHEVY S10 ENGINE SWAP Alto 2-22-07  
Yes a v8 is great i build 5 s10 i recommend a 350 because you can do so much with them to get more power but first you need a 350 convershion kit you should be able to get at any parts house and a set of shorty headers ad what ever tranny you use i recommend a 350 turbo you can use the same crossmember and tranny mount after you get it all in and bolted up you need to get a long or shorter drive shaft depending on if you have a short wheel base or a long wheel base if you have any problems or questions send me a email carralto@yahoo.com

The engine will bolt in if you swap to a 4.3 mount pad on the frame but the tranny will not bolt up from a 2.8 to a 4.3 you would need a 90* 700R4 the 2.8 uses a 60* 700R4 tranny.

Re: CHEVY S10 ENGINE SWAP Larry 2-7-07  
The tbh350 is always a real good choice because there are parts all over the country if needed and the tranny bolts right up to the engine ! You MAY need to relocate thye cross member slightly rearward but thats emrely a case of drilling a couple of new holes ! You can get a regular tranny or a lockup if prefered(lock-up torque converter) ! This is a common transmission to ALL G.M.vehicles(cars and trucks both) and has been used with great success in a great many engine/tranny swaps !

Re: CHEVY S10 ENGINE SWAP Dave 2-14-07  
I have a 1992 Chevy S10 Blazer with a 4.3L Vortec engine. Just replaced the water pump, thermostat and all radiator related hoses. Then flushed out the radiator. My temp gauge runs hot. Anyone know what the normal operating temp is on this vehicle? Or any suggestions on what else could cause this to run hot? I have 120,000 miles on the vehicle and always do my regular maintenance and oil change every 3 months. Was thiking that it could be a malfunctioning temp sensor.

Bravada v8 engine swape, im doing the same thing, im 15, saving a lil cash, right now i have a 86 chevy s10, (93 engine trivetrain and frame) she's got a 98 ford stpedside on her, yes you can swap the 4.3 with a 305, it would be stupid if someone put a 350 in one because you get more out of the 305,

Re: CHEVY S10 ENGINE SWAP Rebel 2-26-09  
Your all nuts! Any S10 with a 4.3 you can bolt a small block in, if its a 4 banger or 2.8 you need a tranny and mounts. If its a 4X4 you need an oil pan. No need for cutting or beating on anyhting it fits. 3 inch body lift maked it even more easily done. I have done several.

Re: CHEVY S10 ENGINE SWAP Ed Sent 9-27-08  
I have a 1994 S10 with a 2.2 engine with an automatic transmission. The engine is gone...Can I replace this engine with a v6 Vortex or even a chevy 350 with out major change over or would it be best to simply rebuild my 2.2 engine. I will mostly use my truck for a 40 mile commute to work and back 5 or 6 days a week. Also this truck came with no airconditioner, how hard would it bee to install Air Conditioning in this truck

Re: ANSWER TO SWAPING 4.3 TO 305 OR 350 Sean 11-2-10  
The guy that posted that you'd be stupid to put a 305 instead of a 350 hasn't a clue what he's talking about. A 305 is a boat anchor and you'd be better off keeping the 4.3 vortec then wasting time with a 305.It's not a good truck motor with very little torque and that's what you need in a truck.
Your best bet with a v-8 swap is to find a v-8 truck that's being parted out and switch the wiring harness and ecm as well as the intake manifold along with all of the accesories.You can put a carb on it but won't be able to get through an emissions test if you need to.You can also get an adapter for the ecm and just change the engine harness,but you still need to find an intake and injection set-up and used is the cheapest way to go.All in all a very easy swap if you have a wrecked v-8 truck or one being parted out. But remember,don't waste your time on a 305 a 350 is a much better and starting point with many easy upgrades. There is no substitute for cubic inches
Re: ANSWER TO SWAPING 4.3 TO 305 OR 350 shon 9-11-11  
Well just so u know I know all abt motors I acquired a wrecked 96 trk with 305 vortec I wld put 350 in if u will buy me one
