    Default 88 s10 questions

    I just recently bought an 88 s10 long bed, and because I like to know what I am dealing with, I did a google search on the one I have.

    My s10 is a regular cab long bed with a 2.8l v6, and a 5 speed manual transmission. According to my search, there was no such thing. Multiple sources said "Only the EL Regular Cab Short Bed 2WD and Extended Cab Short Bed 2WD got a standard five-speed manual transmission with overdrive. The other trims got the four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive. "
    Is this right? Was there special orders? Did they just have bad info to go on?

    Other than this, it seems like a good truck, a few small repairs. Also one slightly bigger fix. The previous owner tried to adjust the timing, and broke off a piece of a screwdriver in the cylinder while trying to find top dead center.
    The piston and valves in it are still good, no damage, and hasn't been started since that happened.
    I don't know much about mechanics, but even I know not screw around like he did. (No pun intended)

    Other question, How easy are the s10 trucks to work on?

    Also, there is only 70,000 original miles, and I paid only $425
