Bad Day!

My fishing truck (93 Z-71) just blew it's tranny. 183,000 isn't too bad. I'm thinking about swapping in a newer drive train. Has anyone come across any good 4x4 web sites or first hand experience?

Thanks!!

You probably have a 700R4 tranny in your 93. GM has made a lot of changes, but has used the same base tranny for many years, I'm not sure but may still be in 07s renamed as a 4L60E. (This tranny used behind 4.3 V6, 305/5.0 V8 and many 350/5.7 V8.)

Do you have a good local independent tranny shop? They have a lot of upgrades available, and will know what will work with your truck setup and how you want to use it.

Post back with what area you are in and I'm sure you can get help with shop recommendations close to you.

      What does the Lake map chip run for it?

      Great tip Big A.  Was in exact scenario and picked one up myself.  Right after ordered the universal Lowr. pack from cabelas.  Had a 597 on old boat that sold, loved the unit for ice, excited to see how Lowrance is this time around.  Will sit next to the Garmin in boat for GPS, not a big fan of the Lakevu

      There are certainly areas on the West end of Vermilion that walleyes can spawn at. Quite a few years ago walleyes were tagged at the Pike River Hatchery and some of them were caught on the West end a couple of weeks later! So walleyes will certainly travel full length of Vermilion to spawn also! Cliff

      Walleyes are known to travel very long distances to spawn.  Lots of tracking studies done on other bodies of water show annual spawning movements of 50 miles or more commonly being made.  That puts the entire lake well within range for any given walleye that wants to make a long spawning run.   My question is this...are there spawning grounds on the West end of the lake?  Or, are most of the walleyes - includng those found most of the year on the West end - traveling to the East end and running up into Pike Bay to spawn?  Has anyone caught West end walleyes dripping in eggs or milt early in the season?   Brian

      I can not think of any lake in the Ely area that would have 5" of ice. Even the beaver ponds in the Tower area barely have ice on them! Cliff
