Is it 4wd? I may want it for parts.

I have a B2600. Put a new engine in, and it runs rough. Thinking of changing to a V6. I need info on it. I know how you feel.

Just bought a 1987 B2600 4x4, It has the original carb on it with all the lines pulled out, with screw plugging several different places. I think I am about to buy a Weber carb, and if those Pacesetter headers do fit, wouldn't mind to get some of those as well.

Since I have bought the truck, I have loved it. Regardless, I drive it to chase coyotes and check traps... and to school of course. It has treated me great, and wouldn't mind to get that little more "umphh".

Can anybody find a 6 cylinder engine that can fit the 1987 B2600 transmission (4X4)? Please email me at rf300484@yahoo.com

When I pulled the bed off mine, a prior owner had installed an electric in-line pump and bypassed the tank pump. But if you take the bed off, going into the top of the tank is the pump and filter; remove the screws and pull out the assembly, and change the pump

The fuel pump control unit is under the dash above the pedals.

Hi Dennis, I've got the same problem with my B2600 and am wondering which Weber model carb did you use to replace the Mikuni?.. I realize that your post was nearly 10 years ago. Hope you're still online.

I own an 1988 B2600. The fuel pump is electric instead of manual like it's supposed to be for the age of the truck. It does all the same things. Check what kind of fuel pump you have, and if it's electric you know what your problem is.

Can somebody make a YouTube video to show how to install the Weber carburetor for the 1987 B2600? It would truly be appreciated.

I think the Mitsubishi 3.0 that Plymouth used in their minivans in the 80s.

I think that 3.0 might bolt up; stock they're 150hp instead of maybe 85 for the stock 2600 on a good day. The G54B is a Mitsubishi engine, NOT a Mazda.

Good luck, Dan.
