5 Speed swap?
« on: October 23, 2006, 09:58:59 AM »
Hey I'm new here.  Just picked up a 67 with a I6 3sp.  Looking to due the V8 conversion and a 5 speed. 

What can I use?  I know the aftermarket stuff, Tremec TKO, 500, 600 and the T56.  But are there any donor cars that have stout 5 speeds that would work?

don't know of any direct bolt in swaps available.

if you modify the crossmember the sky's  the limit.

5 speed out of camaro, firebird bolt to original bell housing with little modification.  you can still use original throw out set up. modify crossmember slightly and move the location of hole in floor a couple in rearward.  remove 5speed shifter and flip it around and it fits in counsel once again this must be relocated about 2 inches rearward, no one will notice it.  i have done this many times, very simple. make sure you get trans from v-8 car.  must be early trans with speedo cable. late ones have electronic speedo.  should be able to by trans on e-bay for less than $500.00.
