    Does anyone know of an adapter that will mate a standard stick shift trans to a 500/425 Cadillac engine?
    I want to try something... but I cannot find an adapter to get away from the Auto trans.

    all you need is a pontiac standard bell housing and a flywheel from an after market supplier.
    I think McLoud or Mc somebody makes the flywheel.

    Then you have to drill the crank for the pilot bushing,

    You don't need an "adapter"....you need a Buick, Olds or Pontiac manual shift bell housing......so-called BOP......that block pattern is the same as the Caddy.

    The flywheel may be the more difficult to source......not sure if there is a factory GM
    flywheel that fits, though aftermarket types are available.
