I've been doing extensive research ahead of swapping in an SM465 granny gear 4spd and NP205 behind my 6.2L. I've got my parts list done up, most of the parts collected, and I'm down to the last few elements -
bearings associated with the clutch system.
I've been reading over some posts here and on ColoradoK5, and I've run across a few conflicting part numbers for the flywheels. KennyW recommends PN 14022675 (but it doesn't show up as a valid PN on GMPartsDirect.com), I've also run across PN 14050525N which I'm unable to confirm, and my Chevy dealer quoted me PN 14077160.
I told them I needed a flywheel for an '86 Chevy K30 4WD with 6.2L J code diesel and 4spd manual trans. This PN (14077160) seems to verify across the board as a valid number, but it's expensive. I've also seen LUK PN LFW201, but the guys at CarQuest who've spoken to the LUK rep say this part is a no-go and LUK doesn't make a flywheel for that application.
So, I'm stuck. I'd hate to order a $300 flywheel to find out it doesn't fit... (actually a $550 flywheel, but ordered from a direct online wholesaler it drops to $300 plus shipping)
I'll be running a hydraulic clutch setup, I scored big time and grabbed an entire cab from a hydro clutch setup stick shift truck, and got the trans, bellhousing, slave and master cylinders, pedal hangers, pedals, steering column, the works. My plan is to drop the entire cab on, as mine is badly rotted out. I got the entire package (complete cab and trans) for trading a 4WD TH400 trans that I had as a spare. The money I saved in finding all those parts I don't mind putting into the rest of the system, probably the flywheel and pressure plate.
Anybody have a good source that I can use to verify the PN's for an entire system that will work together?
Thanks in advance! (I tried to crosspost on ColoradoK5 but I don't have posting priveleges until I buy a upgraded membership)
Oh yeah, I've scoured most of my local wrecking yards to no avail, and Craigslist only finds two 6.2L/SM465 trucks nearby, one for $650 and one for $1500...
