Either way, I would be interested in seeing what information you've got! Thanks for adding your info however not everything interchanges from 55-60. The clutch for the 284 is also unique with a pull style slave. Aluminum bumpers,hood,fenders,inner fenders,deck lid,radiator support. I'm pondering a Turbo 400 behind it, but just rebuilt the Hydro a year ago, to the tune of over 2 Grand, so not sure yet about which slush box it will have. This car should rock pretty good for a 2-ton Tesse! And use stainless steel studs with brass nuts.
Also, you've alluded to the fact that you could be producing parts for this type of swap, though into a Fiero. One thing you might consider would be a 64 Cadillac turbo 400 if you wanted a turbo 400 with a trans mounted starter and no adaptors to shoe it in, but for myself I really like the old P type 4 speed super hydro. Now it gets sticky as far as mounts: 1955-1958 use a chin mount under the front of the engine, that attaches to the front cover. Well, Schram has a ton of F40s at that price, but before I commit, I want to make sure I can make this work without spending an arm and a leg. If this happens, then you might find that the stock transmission mounts no longer work and you might need to fabricate them as well.
No, not really but they have it covered. This flywheel is plentiful, already has the right crankshaft pattern, is already the right thickness, and is already neutral balanced. The bell housing patterns changed every couple of years, through '62. Another potential issue with the 284 is the bellhousing placement side to side in the chassis. It shifts smooth as silk. This will help front seal drain back to the pan and will keep from blowing the front seal out. Valve body and case differences.
Then I'll put a manual in somehow. Here are a couple of pics. I know this is a stupid question, but is the intermediate shaft typically included with the trans or does it need to be purchased separately? But the clutch not being strong enough? In addition to the above info, you would obviously have to remove the freeze plugs in order to run the water outlets. Thanks to for the photo! You require the heavy duty version of that transmission. I could of went a lot more thorough but what i wrote is the main stuff to help out. After talking to Dave and the shop that did the work last time, it appears that my trans will need a minimal amount of work, depending upon how things look when it comes out.
When it comes to transmission bolt patterns, you have: 1955-1960 you can swap any transmission to any motor 1961-1964 are similar to the 60-back pattern, but with a few small changes. You could make most 55-60 tranny's work but some do need adapters. If '67 Camaro, I would assume always dangerous it came only behind 396. While they may work just fine, they may also need to be rebuilt. I do, however, see your point. Driveshaft mods - to fit new yoke - actually you will probably want to have a whole new driveshaft fabricated; 3.
Awesome chicks and it is absolutely free! Take care of that ol' Poncho! Hope some of you enjoy this. There is one that is Chevrolet only, and the other fits all Buick, Olds, Caddy and Pontiac engine from those days. I found an adaptor to mount your late model Cummins diesel to an 87 Yugo transmission. Second, you will need to cut out the floor tunnel and either modify it or fabricate a new tunnel. Of course, some modification the transmission case and some sort of bracket will need to be fabricated to mount the starter. This kit will fully convert your car from the boring automatic that it is now to a short-geared 6 speed giving you better acceleration, more power to the wheels, better fuel economy, and just a more connected driving experience.
I second what Dave B. Been running them here in our old Pontiacs since 1989, always happy with their performance! I would love to have that transmission in just about any car. None of those applications include an engine making more than 400 lb. All these kits are high quality, customized build to incorporate the part replacement components you should have for overhauling your manual transmission. So, by January 68 all three brothers were running around northern Virginia in Muscle Pontiacs. If you want to go with a manual transmission, the early bellhousings should work with later transmissions, or else Brad Duerst at Fabcraft Metalworks in Texas is reproducing the old Ansen two piece aluminum bellhousings to fit the earlier cars.
Having issues with your Pontiac manual transmission, need parts? New transmission linkage - the roto linkage will not work with these newer transmissions. Improved versions of the 700R4 used a 30 spline shaft and different torque convertor. . That just doesn't make a ton of sense. Modify exhaust system depending on what you do in item 3; 5. And for me, this makes a difference as our Impala sees about 3500 - 4000 miels per month, 95% of which is highway. Smaller engines will nearly always benefit from the smaller transmissions.
Not 100% sure but on Pontiacs prior to 1964, the starter bolted to the slim jim transmission bell housing. The rest of the parts are the same - bearings, etc. Don Topic Jump To: Pontiac Street Performance © 2006-2017 This page was generated in 0. I need to get my car running first and make sure everything works like it should. I can't think of a better place for it.
