I have seen both styles. I still do not have a good handle on the W55 2wd trans. Since 99.9% of my rebuilding is on 4wd trans, I recall working on 2wd W55 and W56's. Both trans were the same inside with a 3.83:1 first gear. It appears that 2wd carb trucks got the std G52 or the h/duty W55?.toy283 said:Marlin, wouldn't that be a W55 in the one-tons? Or is it truly a modified W56? [/B]
Your one ton trans is a keeper. Only 2wd turbo diesel, and one ton 2wd trucks use the same 3.95 first gear trans as a 4x4 EFI truck!fishtruck66 said:I have a w56 out of a 2 wheel drive one ton. Can I use the output shaft, tailhousing and shift linkage from any of the G series or L series 4 wheel drive transmissions to convert it to 4wd.
