Hi...appreciate the replies...."not worth the time or money" but not a major
mod....hmmmm....obviously, I'm not going to put $4K into a $7K car.....but I
appreciate your input. If anyone wants to elaborate, please do!
Many things can go right but then there are a number of things that
can go against your change over.
Throw out bearing length differences.
Number of teeth in the yoke spline.
Incorrect hole in the end of the crank for your pilot bearing.
Length of drive shaft.
Solid cross member modification, (not sure what a '75 has).
Actuator rod differences.
Pivot ball stud location in bell housing.
Throw out arm length.
Proper pedal location, length.
Shifter worn out from donor.
Console plate expensive or not available.
Starter location needs shimmed.
Cracked the radiator removing the coolant lines.
New gear to correct speedometer, minor.
Correct balance on the flywheel, engine lower combination.
And last but not least if I've haven't missed some, that strange
vibration, shudder, or chatter that wasn't there before.
All of the above may fall right into place and then again all of them
can bite you when you least need it to happen. Each one can add time
and dollars plus the frustration that goes along with your Corvette
being out of service. If everything goes smooth for a couple of
thousand dollars and 2 days you're in your 4 speed Corvette. Then
again if they go sour for four or five thousand dollars and 5 weeks
you have a car that shutters when you drive it.
As I said before, an easy mod but can also be your worst nightmare.
