PostSubject: My turn to row my boat   Tue Sep 14, 2010 10:02 pm

I am going to start collecting the parts neccesary to install a T-56 in the wagon. I figure I have the rearend setup, and an aluminum driveshaft, and I can make my own crossmenber. So I just need the factory GM parts like a tranny, bell housing slave cylinder, flywheel, and cover, and aftermarket clutch, pressure plate, throwout bearing, and F2B conversion kit. I will be replacing the engine with an aluminum headed LT1 with 87k on it. While the drivetrain is out, plans also include fixing, or just plain replacing the floorboards.

I am starting to get excited again. Very Happy

I looked at their web site, but could not find it. You have a link to the cross member.

Robertson's Used Auto Parts in Wareham, Ma. Too lazy to do a search? Wink 1100 bucks for the whole shebang. I've done it twice.

http://www.bowtieoverdrives.com/index.shtml

They make the crossmember for Dan. I ordered my 4L80 one from them also. I don't see the T56 one on their site, but call them and I'm sure they'll have it. Smile
