tranny swaps
« on: December 28, 2009, 05:48:58 PM »
hey, im looking to swap out the auto tranny in my 76 bus for the manual one since im going to have the engine out for an overhaul. are there any drastic differences that would make this difficult or would it be nearly seamless?

Different shift linkage, diffrent hole in the floor, diffrent pedal assembly (=adding another hole in the floor), need clutch cable and different flywheel.
