Post by bigc » Wed 07 Feb 2018, 20:12

Hi okes I need some inputs on whether a GM Ranger SS 4-speed gearbox will work on a Chev 4.1 Straihght six motor? What things do I need to consider if I go this route??? My truck is a 1969 C10 bakkie.

It should fit as the same belhousing is used! Take care on the diff ratio as the 4.1 uses a 3.08 ratio and the Ranger a 3.45. The propshaft length may also be different! Johann. Make certain the starter is located on the same side! That will determine the fit!!
