I just pick up a sweet '87 GL-10 wagon. It was for sell in southern Utah for 2000$. The seller agreed to meet me half way to Salt Lake City. He pulled off the freeway to meet me and it would no longer go into third gear. The ATF was bone dry. The frustrated sell then dropped the price to 1000$. I knew before I wanted to pick it up I'd prefer the 5speed d/r.
But now am trying to weigh out my options.
Do the Manual swap(pedals,drive shaft, diff,etc)?
Fix existing transmission?
or find a 4at or 5 at that will bolt in?
my main function of this GL-10 is to keep my vanaru as my camping rig only and something to drive while i finish my 83 ej swap
I would like to keep it front wheel drive with the 4wd option. I love the d/r but not required on this rig for me.
also the air ride works but really really slow anyway to bump up the speed? and should i replace the struts with stock or is there a better option?
