1979 Chevrolet K30

Old Truck News

The base engine in the 1979 Chevy K30 was the venerable 292ci Chevy K30(4.8L) inline-six (except in California, where the 350ci V-8 was the base), backed up by the Saginaw SM465 four-speed and a married NP205 T-case. Axles were a Dana 60 up front, a full-float 14-bolt in back, and standard 4.56:1 cogs (4.11:1 for the V-8s). If you got the 10,000-pound GVW dually, you got a Dana 70 rear axle. No matter which, you could opt for an automatic (TH350 for the I-6, TH400 for V-8s), which also gave you full-time 4WD (whether you wanted it or not) in the form of the now generally-sneered-at NP203 T-case.
