    I did it with body on, imagine body off is even easier

    ^^^^ Thanks, I forgot the 1940 went to column shift that had to change a few things. Bob
     
  7. A good question would why do you want to do this? The location of the clutch lever is different, is that what you are taking advantage of? Maybe just availability?

    I'm not positive, but I think somewhere in the year switcheroo the opening in the X member changed. You might need to clearance the X a little, but it should be obvious when you put the pedals through.
     
  10. This is a very common swap when we changed to Fork operated clutch (as in Chevy) bellhousing. Turn the through shaft 180* and it was just a short rod to the fork to pull instead of push.
