I'm getting pretty sick of TH350's is there a manual option some of you guys are running? How hard is it to adapt one to a metric (82 Monte 350ci had a TH350 in it). A big concern is what will fit and the clutch linkage. Any ideas guys??

Just run a hydraulic setup with either a slave cylinder or a hydraulic throwout bearing. You can put a manual transmission in any car and make it work.

the 3 speed saginaws are a bolt in the drive shaft and cross member bolt right up, speedway sells the required bellhousing fairly cheap. i bought the 3 speed shifter outta summit but found it later at advance for way less but less quality i guess. the saginaws come with different gearing depening on the rings on input shaft the more rings the lower gears that are in trans. if u need ratios pm me

After thinking about it that was another question that came ot mind was about driveshafts and what will work. I have zero knowledge about transmissions/slave cylinders/TO bearings/bellhousings and all that so all this infor is awesome! Thanks

yeah 17 it was an indy qualifier paid out the @#$ for it $100 advance has the sparkomatics cheaper like 50 but i think junk when i did my swap i was pushed for time and ordered up i didnt go for 2 lever cause of the thought of maybe going from 1-2 on starts depending on my gearing untill it was all figured out in the end. the shifter does good is built well but u gotta keep it clean and lubed to be best not a prob for me i go over everything every chance i get but i agree make your own...
