I do believe that the bell houseing is different between the two transmisions. Plus not to sure the tranny would hold uo to the lt1 350. Plus the torck converter will probly be different

Aaacar is correct the 4.3 uses the same trans as the Vette. Some internals and the torque converter are beefed a bit.

4.3 v6 bellhousing pattern is the same as an lt1 or any small block chevy or even big blocks. The LSX engines have been changing it up tho. A trans designed for the 4.3 is a little weaker than one make to be behind a v8. Less clutch packs, servos, blah, blah, blah. They can be upgraded to be better still.

its a 5 speed also

the 5 speed will work but be warned, dont be rough on those factory 5 speeds. They can last a long time but if you like quick shifting it will die quick.

thank you for the help.

So a 1992 Chevy 4.3L V6 is compatible with a 1992 2500(3/4) transmission ? And the bellhousing will fit perfectly?

i have a 1991 chevy 1500 short bed,,with a 5.7 stock,,will a 4.3 trans work and be ok with changing anything,,this is not a hot rod,,got it new trans went out a few years ago ,,just fixing it up,,found a trans in a truck with a 4.3 engine,,just need to know if that trans will work

So I got a transmission from a 1996 Jimmy 4.3 5 sod, I should be able to bolt it right up to my 1988 4.3 Chevy engine with a new clutch

I guess Iam Asking if the bell housing is the same on a 1996 Jimmy 4.3 to a Chevy 4.3


Bellhousing is the same

I have 86 c10 v6 4.3 4 speed i want to put 5 speed From v8 366 fit the same bell housing
