Ok that is my biggest concern, mounting the motor to the trans. So I need a Windsor bellhousing for a manual trans. Does it need to be off of a 4 speed trans or will one of a 5 speed work also?
Also, do you know what I am gonna run into with the flywheel and clutch?
I am guessing that with the windsor bellhousing I will be able to use the clutch in thats currently behind the mod. Will the t bird flywheel work or do I need to find one off a truck with a manual trans?
Sorry for all the questions, I am an over-the-road trucker and only home on weekends. My goal is to get all the parts I need before I start swapping and get it all done and running in one weekend.
I really appreciate the answers to my questions, I was hoping I wouldnt have to resort to just putting a chevy drivetrain in it instead.
