Re: 1960 GMC Suburban

While working on the engine and transmission, we are also working on the seat frames. Took them down to metal and primed them. Ready for paint..

Re: 1960 GMC Suburban

So ... things are moving along. Freshened up the motor a little. Cleaned out all water jackets and replaced all freeze plugs. Followed the "while you are there" philosophy .. and while it was out, cleaned all the sludge from the valves, cleaned the oil ports and new gaskets etc. New oil pump, new plugs, new clutch etc.able to clean and paint the engine compartment paint the engine and tranny.

Re: 1960 GMC Suburban

So I am going to post this issue here too since I have not had a lot of response from my other thread. I am taking my Burb back to the original style 3-speed on the tree.

I obtained a 3-speed from a burb years ago and have held onto it waiting for the time I could install it. Now that I have, the original linkage does not line up to the tranny levers.

I am trying to figure out why. Any ideas ? Anybody else had/solved this issue ?

Re: 1960 GMC Suburban

Okay..I have a BIG favor to ask...ANYBODY who has a 60-62 ( maybe later not sure) 3 on the tree.. can you look and see if the shift levers on the tranny are both down ? The original shop manual show three different views, with two showing the forward shift lever as "up" and the rear shift lever as "down". What do you guys show as yours being ?

It looks like my linkage might work if it is up, but the lever doesn't look like it has been changed.

Can any post pictures of what their lever positions are in neutral ??
