I thought 350 and 6.2 have the same bolt pattern. If not finding a 6.2 4spd combo will be alot harder. Can sombody please confirm.

Thanks

It is the same bellhousing bolt pattern. However, some have stated there is a difference in the starter depth of the diesel vs gas starters.

Bolt pattern is the same, bellhousing is different as far as the mounting parts go.

The hydraulic clutch is prefered to the mechanical clutch also because if you twist the truck up offroad the mechanical linkage will bind and can go out of adjustment, even break. Hydraulic doesn't do this.

Change of plan. I did buy the 1982 chevy for parts. After looking at it I determined it had a bit more use as a farm truck. Not as ugly as I first thought with very minor surface rust and a few dents. I have purchased a nv4500 rebuilt 5 spd transmission. I debated if I should go with the mechanical or hydraulic cluch. It seems the decision has been made for me. I talked with the rebuilder after it was delivered to me about how the hydraulic cylinder would be mounted. He said that there is a different imput for the hydralic setup. Do not know if that is correct but will find out. The plan now is to get a new cluch assy and used pedals and linkage. Then I'll get moving on the swap out. Will post pics during this process​

Almost being the operative word. I'm not certain which yr it is however a friend thought it was an early model. 6 mounting bolts I think he said. How can I tell? The length of this xmission is very close to the auto 3spd which will be removed. The biggest challenge is to get all the right pieces on hand prior to teardown so that once started we can continue with no further delay.
