Hi I am in the process of restoring a 1963 Chevy C10 stepside from ground up. I hope someone can help me out. I have a question on the "Technical C10 trans swap" posts. I am swapping out a straight 6 in my 63 Chevy C10 with a 305 and 700r4 trans that came out of a 1987 Camero Z28. I beleive the trans will work with a little tweaking from the transmision shop but what kind of tweaks should I have them do? I will be using this truck as a daily driver and towing. The next quesions is several diferent users have explained why GM added the front crossmember and suggest leaving it in and adding across member to support the tail shaft of the 700r4. Provided I leave the front crossmember (trans support) should I be concerned with the angle and clearance of the trans to the cross member? What about the emergency brake brackets on the cross member behind the trans crossmember, should I remove this and mount on the new tube tail shaft crossmember I install for the tail shaft. Please note the 2x4 is setting on the e-brake bracket to prevent trans from hitting the crossmembers. Any suggestions are welcome.
