I bought a 81 lemans with a 3.8L V6, just to get around while I build my next truck so stop laughing, and i was thinking of putting its V6 in a sammy, tight fit
so Im wondering what bolt pattern it would have and what trannies it would take? Im asuming it would be a dodge tranny.......

thanks

Hey Shannon. Lemans or Lebaron???? the Lemans is a Pontiac . The Lebaron is a Chrysler..... If it has a 3.8 litre then it is a Pontiac (this engine is the "buick"v6 ) 231 cubic inches (one US gallon) the only manuals that bolt up are real crappy ones like the sm420 (YEAH RIGHT...LOL) you can use the bellhousing from a S10 truck to do this mod. If you're putting this motor in a Sammi just use a BOP pattern automatic (again a Bolt up) and rig the adapter driveshaft....

If it is a POS dodge v6 then I think the Dakota's used this engine (yer basically on your own there...)

Thanks, yeah i kinda had a brain fart there and thought pontiac was related to dodge
So it is a buick 3.8, this could work. Right now its a toss up between the 3.8 and the 22r outa my truck, gonna have to look into this........

and the anti-spill cup holders are in the final stage of R and D
