A few years ago this Chevy C10 truck was powered by a tired 350 ci small-block V8 and four-speed manual transmission. Since then the owner has replaced the V8 with a turbocharged Cummins 6BT diesel inline-six. The inline-six features an upgraded fuel pump and injectors, equal-length twin-scroll exhaust manifold, and Holset HX35W turbocharger. Power will be sent through a ZF five-speed manual with a Clutchfix clutch to a Chevy 12-bolt rear end with factory differential. The owner will eventually upgrade to a Yukon differential. The truck rides on a Western Chassis DS2 shocks, Air Lift DS2600 bags with KNTRL control system, CCP shock mounts, four-link rear suspension, and a set of American Racing AR23 wheels.

Hmmm, its says GMC across the grille. Maybe the author and editor should recheck their facts before they put stuff out.
It is a Chevy C10 with a GMC front.
Maybe you should mind your business and stop giving the author a hard time when he puts out absolutely AMAZING content. No one asked you to come to this page 😉
Nice work on the truck.
I am putting a 6bt in my 72 c10, i am trying to figure out which transmission will work for me. This truck on this site went with a ZF is what I am understanding right. what adapter or bell housing is used with it.
Hi Nathan. We recommend you contact Diesel Conversion Specialists to see if one of their adpaters will work.
