93 s10 v8 conversion shift linkage

I have a 2wd x-cab 93 I did a v8 swap. The truck originally had a 4l60e tranny. I thought it was a 700r4? I swapped the tranny with a th350 can anyone share there experience with what you did on the shift linkage??

Re: 93 s10 v8 conversion shift linkage

i have two different experiences with this...

did a v8 swap years ago in a 95 which is the newer body style but dont think that matters. anyways 350 engine th350 transmission. i had a old hurst shifter laying around and just got all the cables and adapters for the transmission and dont remember having any issues with it once i got all the parts



on my 1993 with the 4l60 transmission which you guessed it, is basically a 700r4, i just went to a junkyard and snagged a shifter assembly off a late 80s camaro. again dont really remember having any issues and pretty sure it bolted right up using everything i found at the junkyard.



the 93 is a offroad truck so i guess if you grabbed the console it might have looked a bit better lol

the camaro shifter is the one on the left. the other one is for a np208 transfercase

Thanks for the reply I am going to do what you did and install a floor shifter the factory linkage is hitting the header. It is hard to gauge the correct bend that is needed. Thanks again.

no problem. both of those set ups use cables. that was the whole reason i put the camaro shifter in the offroad truck, there was a few times during flexing the shifter wouldnt shift so i went with a floor shifter
