"Well the transmission was a '53 and the engine was a '73 and when we tried to put in the bolts all the holes were gone. .... So we drilled it out so that it would fit And with a little bit of help with an A-dapter kit we had that engine runnin' just like a song." - Johnny Cash I think we need a thread that brings together all the little tips and details of adapting transmissions to engines they never were mated to from the factory. I often see brief descriptions of WHAT was put together, but not HOW. All the gory details like what pilot bushing, was the input shaft trimmed, what clutch disk part number was used, which adapter housing was used and/or modified. In short, this will hopefully become a repository of reference information for trans swaps. Copies of old magazine articles are legit, as long as the detail is there. Links to other HAMB postings are legit too. Now, this IS NOT to be ANOTHER T5 thread, there is already a great lengthy thread here,plus others. So don't bother with that. What I would like to see for example is LaSalle to flathead or T-10 to Studebaker or Buick straight 8 to ZF transaxle. Go.
