    Default Standard tranny swap?

    Hey my names Adrian. I own a 93 chevy silverado 4x4 with a crate 350 and a 700r4 auto transmission. the other day i lost reverse and od. the tranny fluid was full but it was dark brown... not a tint of red. so i assume theres not much i can do besides a rebuild or a new tranny. I was thinkin about making my truck standard and i figure now would be the time to do it. I know all the work thats involved i just dont know what standard transmission to look for? i couldnt find n e thing on google about a transmission list or what tranny fits what engine. Can n e one help me out?

    you will need a lot of other parts. Full clutch assembly(pedal, clutch master cylinder etc) tranny, possibly different axle and t-case if the manual tranny is different length than the auto. 93 also has some computer stuff so an ECM swap from the manual tranny I would assume as well. i would say it would be easier to just find a running manual truck

    NV4500 (light duty, P/U and SUVs)is what you would be looking for, the NV3500 is for medium duty trucks

    if i'm not mistaken the nv4500 is the manual used in the 2500's and the nv3500 is the one offered in the 1500, me and my father both drive 1500's with the nv3500.

    I would stick with the automatic myself but either a NV 3500 or NV 4500 would work. The NV 4500 is a HD 5 speed with a granny low which you would only use occasionally where the 3500 is a regular 5 speed.
