Here's info on the V6 http://www.6066gmcguy.org/ and you would find threads on the 60-66 forum.

Re: 1970 gmc big block V6

You will need a diffrent bell and diffrent motor mount stands. Tha diffrent bell will bolt to the transmission and to the crossmember Ok. Not sure about the clutch linkage,the z bar will most likely work but I dont know about the pivit ball on the motor. If you need parts for the conversion PM me I most likely have a lot of what you need. I never did the swap but had/have 67-72 trucks with the V6 and 350 v8's.

IMO it would be cool to slip a 478M in there.

Re: 1970 gmc big block V6

Welcome jonabalco!

It was my understanding that 1969 was the last year you could get the V-6 unless it was dealer installed. Is that the case with yours? Pictures please of the truck, engine and SPID in the glovebox. Give us the vin and let's work it through. Welcome!

Re: 1970 gmc big block V6

This link should help you...double check that "3" it should be a letter and not a number; an "A" maybe?

http://www.gmcpauls.com/67-72_gmc.htm

Always like to hear about the history of the truck, especially when it gets passed down from a family member.

Re: 1970 gmc big block V6

I hear what your saying about wanting to be a bit more hot rod style. I had/have that 305 in 3 diffrent trucks that I own and it was never a quick thing but once it got rolling it would tool down the road pretty good. I used to drive a 61 GMC 3500 that started off (with me) delivering cordwood and she would roll down the hiway 70 with a load on. One time I had her chained to something that wouldn't pull and that truck grabbed traction and stood up on the rear wheels. I swear that thing had the torqe to pull a house down. My 67 camper cruiser has that engine and I liked driving that just fine too it was a smooth running rig. It had really high rear end gearing,not sure about the ratio, but you actually could drive first gear on the road. If you took off in second it would struggle a bit sometimes as it was a little to high. I thought it was funny,You used the term big block V6 ,people would see that V6 when you were checking the oil at a gas station and think it was a big block V8.

Re: 1970 gmc big block V6

If its not tired- throw a holley 500 and HID on it to wake it up some and drive it! The "M" in your vin is for the V6. They changed the GMC vins after 1967 so I cant decode it much other than its a 2wd, 1/2 ton, V6, and fleetside. I also read 1969 was the last year for the BB6.
