Yes. The 700r4 will bolt up to any 302 or 350

Will a89 accumulater work on a 84

Are you referring to the transmission part? They are both 700r4 transmissions, i believe the only difference in the two is the size of the mainshaft and # of splines

How do I know if options from a 1976 el camino will transfer and fit in my 1976 monte carlo?

In the 70's GM was notorious for simplicity. One size fits all, so it is highly likely that all the Monte Carlo options will fit onto the El Camino unless they are for behind the cab. To double check you will have to look at sales literature from both and compare option lists.

What is the towing capacity of a 1987 el camino with a 4.3l V6 4 sp auto trans

Well the transmission is good for a rating of 6,000.lbs if it is the 700R4 they are in 8, trucks. The motor and the frame is another story. Something that heavy you would want electric brakes on the trailer if that is what you are thinking of hauling.

Will a 700r4 fit into a 87 el camino without having to cut the drive line? I currently have 305 v8 with a hydromatic 200 in it.

It depends on what the 700r4 came out of. Different vehicles had different length tail shafts. The best thing to do is to measure the length of the two transmissions. You should be able to get a driveshaft shortened for around $150 if you need to do it. Also don't forget to get the vacuum-electric switch and harness for the trans, on the firewall by the heater box.
This will really make a difference in your mileage so give it some serious thought. I replaced a Turbo350 with one and my weekly gas bill went from $100 to about $65-$70. Hope this helps.

I have a 85 chevy elcamino. It has a 305 engine in it that needs to be replaced,along with the transmission. I have a friend that will give me a early to mid 90s chevy caprice with a 350. Do you think that...

Providing that the valve covers are the same, the engine should fit. It would be easiest if both transmissions were identical but you can use a 350, 400 or even a 700r4 in there with some mods and a crossmember move and possibly a driveshaft mod. You will probably want to swap intake manifolds and all brackets for stuff up front as well.

Are 1983 el camino bumpers the same as 1983 caballero

Yes. GM made all Chevrolet El Camino's and GMC Caballero's excactly the same, save for badge and trim packages. You can interchange parts with El Camino/Malibu/Monte Carlo cars and some S-10 trim peices will fit. But all three Cars will interchange interior parts. as for the bumpers, Only El camino/Malibu/Caballero will fit without modifying them. A simple Bolt-On and go.
