    Default fullsize vs s10 v6 vortec

    hajjsaa!! means hey friendīs! i just bought a ī99 s10 4wd for hardly 2000 buckīs,itīs in good shape and new hubs ,shocks and all oilīs changed.the engine hade a overhaul with sinking oil pressure at varm motor,no banks or things.problem is exhaust lifter on 4th cylinder ticks and are loose at that the lifter or can the cam loob be so bad? anyway,i had the luck to come over a ī99 v6 vortec from a fullsize chevie with 40000km, so i wonder if it will fit in with no hassle? thinking of drilled holes for attachment and converter to crankshaft fitments. i would like to convert to v8 but it takes so many paperwork according to swedish not understanding other s10 4wd ī00 runs great. the vechiels are built at 5 month seperaral in shreveport/ peter pictures can send by e-mail

    Not being an expert, I'd say yes it will fit. My son just put a new V6 in his 1989 GMC. It sure made a difference as he had 360,000 miles on the old one. I'd say you got a good price, too!

    yes i guess it will work,only conserned about the outside gears and attachments. the price are good i believe and the new motor is clean as new with all cablage and computer,other exhouse manifolds but thats not a problem.wish i were retired too/ best from peter , sweden

    From what I read they're the same exact engines so everything should work.

    i believe so too,was thinking of outher gears and connections.well i fixed the engine in the truck today,it was a sticking lifter wich i cleaned and made it tomorrow i will put the motor together and test.the " fullsize" v6 iīll keep in the garage for future issius.also bought a bedcover for my s10 for 63 dollar on the net.sometimes the net are great for getting things at low prices

    today i put the engine back together(v6 vortec 4.3) and it started right away,thanks to an article on one of the sites for chevies.just want to say that there are 2 timingmarks on the crank pulley.the second mark should be at the zero mark on the camchaincover and the first will be down at the oilsump.donīt know why but thatīs the fact,sorry to say oilpressure falls with warm engine even there were supposed be a new pump and knock anyway and i took it for drive along the roads,it ran perfekt no leaks no iīll guess i spare my fresher vortec for upcomming issius.wondering if oilpressure has somewhat to do with the remotefilter this truck has,s10 ī99 4wd, there should be some reliefvalve wich dont really understand the work of.

    May just be your oil gauge
    pressure will be lower with warm oil and lower rpm's
    Glad you got it working. Did you do the work yourself?
    Remote filter should have a bypass on it.

    yes i did the work myself,but first time on v6.interresting engine.iīll chech with another oilpressure sender this weekend,went by the garage tonight after work no leaks but pressure falls after 15 minutes idling.someone said to change filter to AC,using purolator right now.iīll try a grade thicker oil aswell ,but i still thinking of that bypass valve.the motor sounds good and runs smooth even at low pressure.thought the lifters would start ticking but nothing sofar also drove on the countryside for a few miles and it felt perfect
