PostSubject: Need info on manual transmission swap..   Mon May 19, 2014 2:36 pm

Ok so first off I'm not sure if this is actually going to happen or not, I'd like to gather as much info as possible before making a final decision.

Since the '92 has pretty much a whipped engine and a leaking 4l60 trans I've decided to stuff a 350 into her in place of the little L03. I bought a kit so the tv cable will work with the square bore carburetor I'm gonna run so using the automatic would be fairly easy aside from having no TC lockup.

I have a wonderful super t-10 4 speed trans just sitting in the corner. I already have the flywheel, pressure plate, and clutch.

My problem lies with the clutch pedal assembly..

FIRST I do NOT want to run a t56.

Second, If I can get away with it I DONT want a hydraulic clutch setup if I don't have to.

Is it possible to run an old school mechanical clutch pedal linkage on our cars?

I have a complete pedal assembly and all linkage from my old c10 could this be made to work?
Has anyone ever done a mechanical clutch in a 91-96?

I have read the reason you can't is due to the inner fender liner. This could be a myth however......I have a document detailing a T10 swap in a box body car using all 2nd gen camaro linkage and pedals

Cutting isn't a problem! And I have NO fender wells at all.

Something told me you won't have a problem with cutting metal...

Interesting part will be rigging up the speed sensor to the t-10 to run the speedo....

I'm using a mechanical speedo so I'm just gonna hook up the speedo cable to make it work.
I was concerned with the placement of the pivot. Because in the c-10 the frame was like a C shape there.
On the caprice it's a solid tube chassis in that area.
