Planning on buying a Cheapo LUV from my Neighbor. Now while I don't yet own the truck I'm already trying to learn as much about it as possible.
Most notably I'm trying to find information about the 4-Speed Standard Tranny. Anything would help, especially if somebody could just get me a model #.

It is one of the variants of the MSG-4 transmission. It was replaced by the MSG-5 (5-speed) in 1986 Isuzu P'up (although Chevrolet was no longer selling the LUV).

It has a great reliability record if maintained properly. Failures often resulted from using gear lube rather than the recommended lubricant -- motor oil.

Regular ole motor oil? Good to know. Does the motor oil hold up to use? What viscosity?

Use whatever viscosity is appropriate for your engine in your climate. Change intervals are much longer than for the engine. Engine oil breaks down faster in the crankcase because it's exposed to combustion and much higher temperatures.
