Re: 48 Chevy Truck/ s10 chassis+ Cummins 4bt + a bunch of other parts

I heard you can put a split windshield in the 54 cabs. Is that true? That is my plan with a visor as well. How it will go, IDK. Too early to tell. Haha

Id go with the 4bt Cummins, Older ones have VE pump, and the newer ones have P-pump, they are the better pumps but they are harder to find and you can get more horse out of a p-pump. the 4bt Cummins come both with exhaust up above the engine and below, just most come above the the engine. But you also need to run a different trans to because your stock trans will never take the torque of the 4bt. They make all kinds of adaptors for the 4bt, chevy 4spd chevy torbo 400, or you can go with the dodge trans to, id go to 4btswaps.com and that site will have everythin you need to know, in my mind the 4bt is the better road to take.

A 4bt weigh is about 750pds, most are 105 horse stock, but with almost 300torque. And are easy to get to 250 hp. They have put 4bt in everything from gensets, marine boats, box vans or breed vans, and tractors. And Marine 4bts were stock with 250 hp.

But ether way the 4bt or the 4bd1-t is gona take time and work, and Cost Some Major $$$$. The trans adaptors and the trans are not cheap and a 4bt hard to find depending on where you live.

Read up on the 4btswaps.com its really got all you need to know there, Hours of info on that site. haha 8)

1998 Chevy S-10 4BTA Cummins Diesel

| How-To - Project Vehicles

The S-10 that GM never built, but should have

What you’re looking at is one of the most unique Chevy S-10s you’ll probably ever see. This truck has been repowered with a Cummins 4BTA turbodiesel engine and it sports a stout drivetrain including a solid front axle. Best of all, it was built to use.

The owner/mad scientist behind the truck is Allan Hummel of Waterford, Michigan. He’s a field electrical controls engineer with an obvious knack for creating cool stuff. “This truck was built to handle anything I threw at it, anywhere it happened to be. It was not built for show, not just for rocks or mud, and this truck will not be seen on a trailer. I looked at what worked in vehicles from all over the world from small SUVs to large trucks and took from them the ideas I liked personally. For better or worse I did it all myself at home in my garage with simple tools and a big imagination. I needed a truck that was simple to work on if/when it broke and no help was available, which might be 50-75 miles, not some 2-mile-long trail or 5 miles from a town. This truck is so simple. It can start and run with no battery or alternator, the hydro lines can be bypassed in less than an hour if a fitting breaks, brakes can be turned off if a line breaks, and if a shackle breaks the spring can ride on the frame. I used as many stock parts as possible so problems could be solved by limping into town and ordering the parts. I did my best to keep it street legal in 49 states and Canada even if it looks a little stupid or compromised some off-road ability,” Hummel says.

We met Hummel in Johnson Valley, California, while he was “testing” the truck. He left his home state of Michigan with only 417 miles on the conversion. He ended up driving over 6,000 miles on his “test,” and the vast majority of that was on the trail in places like California, Nevada, New Mexico, and Colorado. Along the way the throttle cable broke (he drove using the hand throttle), a power steering line came apart, and a front stock axleshaft broke. “None of this stopped me for more than an hour,” Hummel says.

A conversion of this caliber required some help from friends. “Thank you to all my friends around the country. And a special thanks to those neighbors who always lent a hand when I needed it, to those who told me to keep on the path when I was straying or lost focus, to those who troubleshot over the phone, and to those who lent tools or took a part to work to get it working for me. Most of all, those caring individuals who checked to see if I was crushed under the truck when I had not been seen for a few days. Without your help I would have never been able to get this far,” Hummel says.

93 S10 Cummins 4BT swap

Its been a little a bit since I've posted anything on the Bscene, here's what I've been working on lately.

We're swapping a 4BT into a bagged 93 S10 so it can pull the bagged camper faster than 60 mph haha.
Some specifics, engine is a ~99 with somewhere around 160k. Came with a Eaton 5 speed attached, we wont be using that. Transmission is a M5OD out of a 97 F150. Adapter plate is the OEM Cummins to Ford. We attempted to use the starter for the P30 stepvan that is listed in the sticky on the 4bt swap forum, but due to the way the starter motor is clocked it interfered with the upper control arm of the truck and wouldn't let it sit down as far as needed. To fix this we ended up with a starter for a 99 7.3 power stroke, this bolted right up with no issues once the spacer plate for the other starter was removed. We reused the oil pan by flipping it around to clear the crossmember, all that was needed was a rear sump oil pickup tube and to move the dipstick location. Extensive modification of the crossmember of the frame, firewall and transmission tunnel were needed.

Ill try to keep this updated as we get more accomplished.

The truck and camper (the first one is a video if you click on it).

The engine after removing all the unnecessary parts.

Video of it running [url="]

Start of the tear down.
thread post photo

This was the first time the engine was set in, you can see the starter basically sitting on the passenger side upper control arm. The engine started to look a whole lot bigger at this point.
thread post photo

After a lot of taking the engine in and out and getting the powerstroke starter, we got everything clearanced and were able to get it low enough to make the stock hood work.
thread post photo

This shows the big hole we created that has to be filled back in haha. You can also see how much was taken out of the crossmember.
thread post photo

The clearance for the transmission, this one is quite a bit taller than what came stock. We may need to tunnel for the driveshaft, but that will wait until it is made.
thread post photo

With everything now fitting in, we started the motor mounts. Passenger side started.
thread post photo

We reused the original brackets that came with the engine, just cut them apart and made them fit to our needs. This is a shot of the passenger side.
thread post photo

And here it is sitting in the truck on the mounts. We modified the transmission crossmember and moved it back around 4 inches.
thread post photo

In order to get the engine to sit low enough, the pan needed to be clearanced.
thread post photo

After the pan was finished, we could start boxing back in the crossmember. This shows it braced up and the center cut out.
thread post photo

A piece of 2x3 1/4" wall tubing was used in the center and the rest filled back in with 1/4" plate. The recess on the passenger side is for the starter.
thread post photo

thread post photo

Welded up.
thread post photo

With the engine and transmission location set, the firewall started going back in. We made a panel for the blower box delete and added a few bead rolls.
thread post photo

Finished and seam sealed.
thread post photo

Primered and almost finished.
thread post photo

That is where the project is at this point, we are going to get the driveshaft measured and hopefully made this week. Today we are planning to get the new upper control arms on and the engine and trans back in. Ill keep this updated, thanks for looking!

S10 4bt

It had such a large diameter that I was scared. "Now you will find out what it means to pull," he chuckled. Fear gave me determination. I pushed him away and ran to the door. But she was locked.

4bt s10 swap

I believe her that she will no longer cheat on me, and even then, everything happened through no fault of her, but still. I told him that something similar happened to me, and although my worldview had changed radically, I had other hobbies, hobbies, which helped me to abstract. Myself from that situation, but all the same, the scar on my soul remained from this, and our relationship is no longer the same as before.

I told him - think better, if you cannot, sincerely forgive her, renounce this situation, then you doom your life to torment. Better to solve everything at once, cut it off once and for all.

Now discussing:

Okay. Papikyan smiled slyly and calculatedly. I understand you, maybe your lawyer will come to me. Fine, on Tuesday.
