I am selling my v6 from my s10. It's a 2.8l v6 with new rings, spark plugs and wires. The guy I bought it from did the engine work, I'm selling it cause I want to put a diesel in it. Make an offer! Located in Moscow, ID. I also have other parts from an s10 if you want them.
!987 Chevy s10 Called Twisted
This is an old slideshow/video of my 1987 chevy s10 that I built many
changes have been made since the making of this video. At the end are some
video my crew and I at the track doing some tuning. At that time the truck
was running flat 7's 1/8 mile
Starting the 'other' 2.8 Chevrolet motor 1-23-10
Re-put-together with parts from the 2.8 I shot with my hakim, this engine
had a spun rod bearing which messed up the crank, and rod. I re-assembled
it with the crank from the other engine, and one rod, and fabricated an
adapter plate to mount a 2bbl carb in place of the fuel injection system.
A few issues, but it does start and run. Don't know what I will do with
this engine....in the spring maybe rev it until it blows, or shoot at it.
Flex Plate Swap in '87 Chevy S10
After swapping the motor in this '87 Chevy S10 I noticed a strong vibration
at idle speed that seemed to somewhat go away at higher RPMs. It did not
matter whether the vehicle was in gear or not. With much research I was
able to determine this was an issue with having the wrong (externally
balanced) FlexPlate for the (internally balanced) engine - - it was the
same model engine (just a couple years newer) and the FlexPlate was the one
that came on the truck (new engine did not have one) so this took a lot of
trial and error to diagnose. If you are experiencing these symptoms -- it
is not the timing, not the fuel injectors, not the distributer or the spark
plugs, and not a vacuum leak -- it is a balance issue with the harmonic
balancer, a cracked piston or (especially in the case of a 2.8 L Chevy of
this vintage) probably the wrong flex plate or flywheel.
Videos and postings I found on the Internet were fundamental in helping me
figure this out -- so I am giving back with this post that I hope can be
helpful to someone else. The Video goes from start to finish including
removing the Exhaust, driveshafts,
transfer case, transmission and finally flex plate.

Beat to hell 1985 Chevy S10, 2.8 V6
Cold start and then driving the 1985 Chevy S10 we have at work. 2.8 liter
carbureted V6. This vehicle is still used daily to make deliveries (I work
at an auto parts store). I didn't even show you the worst part, the front
tires are so bad that the belts are coming through.
