If you have a manual with lots of gears, then go for 3.08-3.55. An auto, probably 3.31-3.55.

Where can I get a full gasket kit? I don't need the works kit with the liners and bearings. Its got low miles, just all the seals have dried up and are leaky. Also I'm only running an alternator and a ac pump, where can I get the ag pulleys I dont need 15 ribs on the pulleys. Does the power steering pump run the same pressure as a standard gm ps pump? I plan on running my hydroboost and ps through it,, just wondering if I have to regulate it down at all. Thanks!

Never put a picture of the travelette up. Here it is when I backed it in to start the teardown. The cab is a bare shell now and the ol 392 is out.

A dealer or ebay for a gasket set. The ps pump will overheat and have problems necking down to 3/8. Pipewhiner sent his to PSC to get modded to work with it.
