well after looking over my truck real good this morning i see theres a fair bit of work to be done,some rust issues on the floors but nothin major,clutch is pretty much shot,but i have a turbo 400/208 combo lined up,new fenders,doors and a few other things to do ,but other wise the runnung gear is solid as fuck,so i'd say this new project will take a little time to complete,mostly just a little tlc and then ill be out on the trails,i would say within a month it will be out and about [cheers]

don't waste your time with a 208 ... if you want an auto go 205 but those 4 speeds are tough as fuck and you can shift em with out the clutch ...


we are really good with these truck's as i had one and we have all worked on em ... look at the abuse never2high's takes because of some of the extra's we have done on his ...

just a heads up larry

ya i know alot you guys on here have had chevys,i will take all input on my build seriously,i jut went and looked at the tranny/case combo and it has a 205 mounted to a trubo 400,so it should be good[cheers]

You sure the clutch is shot ? Really doesnt feel like it..think its actually something to do with the pedal mechanism itself. The clutch in that thing is pretty new man...

looks good.
I agree, the front bumper is not my cup of tea.
and i agree 100% on keeping the manual tranny.

If your out wheeling and you loose a pump or torque converter or it overheats.. your screwed.
In a manual, its pretty rare to loose all 4 gears, and you can drive / shift them without a clutch if you know how.

but thats just my way of thinking.

02-21-2009, 10:22 PM
The driving without a clutch I kno drove mine when it was given to me from Matsqui to my place in langley with no clutch. Dunno how the guy did it but the fork was cracked and then the guys that pulled his hitch out bent the master slave which sucks because 85 was the first year of the hydraulic setup so I ended up doing the entire thing. But atleast now I know when it goes again I can get it home without a problem. Truck looks great I wish they had more bumpers for these trucks but I think I have seen 2 that actually look good.

I was running mine 2 weekends ago on 6. 1 plug wire was off just a bit then one I have had trouble with the header getting in the way so I have since replaced the boot and now has a metal cover to protect the boot and yea what a difference now so the MSD Off Road ignition is going in hopefully this weekend. Only problem is that now I will probably break something with the loud pedal. Anything done that motor or is it just stock?
