The last of the shows will soon be only digital pictures and fond memories. If you are getting your Bolt ready for some last cruises, or just thinking about putting her up for winter, be sure to check out what parts you need from American Classic Truck Parts. They still offer a 10% discount to Stovebolters.

I have acquired a saginaw 3 spd overdrive transmission...I don't know what it came from. ( A chevy I would imagine) I don't think it really matters.I intend to dissasemble it to see if it is alright internally. My question???/ Has anyone done this swap or should I not even consider it? I realize these aren't the strongest transmissions but I don't intend to do any real heavy hauling with my 3/4 ton anyhow. Just looking for a little better milage. Thx for any help or info anyone can provide. Chris

Have a read through this thread? Do you have a 4 bolt side cover or a seven bolt? There were two different versions for this tranny. Actually they are pretty tough transmissions. The only thing that is getting a bit hard to find is the electric solenoid and governor switch for them. I have the seven bolt later tranny with synchro first and think it was my best addition to my GMC with 305E V6. Regards, Steve New Orleans
