Return to manual tranny
#1
Well I hope to get into garage this weekend to work on car but first I have questions, My car was a stick but converted to auto c6 I want to change it back. I want to go 5 speed I need a parts list of what I may need to do this,
I know the normal parts but the bell what will fit?, tranny what year for 5 speed is best, clutch type what is better cable or hydro or z-bar, Flywheel size,
Car has 351 4 with c6 stuck to it, I will toss the C6 into bed of truck for plowing, good weight.

Thanks Trainey, I went through the process a couple of years ago and built most of the conversion parts.

Jeff T.

Low buck, touring style, '73 Convertible "rolling restoration", 351c, 2v heads with a shave and a haircut, Performer intake, Holley 650(ish), roller rockers, screw in studs, guideplates, stainless valves, Duraspark / Motorsports MSD, T-5 conversion. 1-1/8" front, 3/4" rear swaybars KYB shocks and some home brewed subframe connectors. Future plans; JGC steering box, Cobra brakes and... paint, interior, etc.

When I die I want to die like grandpa, peacefully in my sleep... not screaming, like his passenger.

I saw your post and have been reviewing it Droptop73 Did you use z-bar or hydraulic for clutch system?

I built my own Z bar. I used an original set-up for inspiration. I had heard about problems with the hydraulic set-ups and decided mechanical was cheaper and more reliable.

I did the swap on my '68 coupe. It was rather easy. Mine was a J code (302 with a C4 and an 8 inch rear). I took out the motor, trams, and the rear end. I then swapped in a 393w a TKO-600 and a 9 inch. As for the TKO, it was pretty easy. I got purchased the transmission with the bell housing ( a 90's style 5.0L will fit), I got an aluminum flywheel from Fidanza (5.0L flywheel is a 157 tooth with a 50oz balance). Mine is internally balanced. I also got a clutch, pressure plate, clutch fork, Clutch pedal and cable clutch kit. Obviously I went the cable route. No issues with fitment issues with headers and no hydraulic lines. I also got the mounting bracket and shifter with older style T- handle.
I actually purchased everything as a kit from Modern Driveline. You should look them up.

my car is originally a c6 car, almost 5 years ago i swapped in a tko600. my mild'ish 460 build loved the tranny since it had a low 1st gear and a .64OD gear but well well well, i build a strong 521 stroker and now it hated the 1st gear and the .64OD.

now i went back to the c6 with a transbrake. my 521 is so much more streetable with the 1st gear. and if i ever have a OD gear again, it needs to be no lower than a .80 cuz my stroker hates anything under 2000rpms but prefer to be above 2500rpms.

www.moderndriveline.com is your key ticket here! i sold my entire kit to another member here. i can help guide you along with the cable adjustment if needed.
