Re: Rear end 1990P-30 Diesel

Very important question: what transmission do you have? 1990 could be a TH475 or the 4L80E overdrive. Without OD...realistically, you are looking at cruising at 55MPH, tops, even after a swap to 4.56 gears.

Personally, I'd keep the 5.13's and replace the TH475 with a built TH-700 overdrive automatic.

Re: Rear end 1990P-30 Diesel

Thanks for your suggetion.
I have a question on the tranny swap to a different one.
If I can locate a good TH-475or a TH-700 how hard is it gonna be to get it fit to the motor?
Also it is the same lenght so it can be just replaced with one?
There is adapters for it if needed?
Sorry for all the Q?'s,but I'm new the the whole schooli world and would love to put my bus back to the road for the spring-summer.
Thanks in advance.
