98 Chevy G20 Van Repair Manual [BETTER]
The 1970 model year was the last year of the square styling, front drum brakes, and I-beam front axle. The 250 cu in (4.1 L) inline-6 engine producing 155 hp (116 kW; 157 PS) at 4200 rpm was now standard. In addition to the 307 cu in (5.0 L) 2-barrel V8, a 350 cu in (5.7 L) 4-barrel (255 HP at 4600 rpm, 355 lbs-ft torque at 3000 rpm) V8 engine may have been available as an option for the first time in 1970; it is referenced in the owner's manual, but not mentioned in the dealer brochures. The 3-speed automatic and manual 4-speed column shift continued as transmission options.

In line with the C/K pickup trucks, a 4.3 L V6 replaced the long-running 4.1 L inline-6 as the standard engine for 1985. For 1987, the four-barrel carburetor for the V6 was replaced by throttle-body fuel injection (TBI), with the 5.0 L and 5.7 L V8s following suit. Alongside three-speed and four-speed manual transmissions, the G-series vans were offered with three-speed and four-speed automatic transmissions.
For 1988, a fuel-injected 7.4 L V8 was introduced as an option, becoming the first big-block V8 offered for the model line. For 1990, manual transmissions were discontinued and the four-speed automatic became standard equipment on nearly all body configurations; for 1992, the 4L60E and 4L80E four-speed automatics replaced the three-speed automatics entirely.
While retaining the dashboard from 1978, a new tilt steering column was introduced (sourcing the steering wheel from Chevrolet mid-size sedans), moving the manual transmission shifter from the steering column to the floor.
