2.8 liter 5 speed
I have been lurking for awhile but this is my second post.
Will a 5 speed trans from a early 80's 2.8 liter work with a small block chev. .
thanks for your time.

no, it won't fit. the 2.8 was a 60* motor, the 4.3 and small blocks are 90* motors.

You dont want to mate that trans with a V-8, there are a few companies that make adaptors and the package can be cobbled together but the result would be a blown up trans even under the best conditions. The rear under that truck is also suspect and wont last long behind the power of the smallest V-8.
If your doing a swap do the whole drivetrain from radiator to rear axle and all between.

I am asking for a friend who has a 87 G-body frame with a 4 speed now , he wanted to know if the 5 speed would work. are the splines the same . basically his thought was could it just bolt up to his existing bell housing and off to the races type of thing.
it is in a auto cross car . a G body frame with a 67 Corvair body. currently has a malibu 4 speed in it now. he has the 5 speed in a S 10 and wondered of it would work.
