  16. Transmission Swap

    Drivetrain & Performance
    My th350 recently went out in my 74 and i'm trying to determine what I should put in it. I know i can rebuild the th350 but I want to convert it to a manual. My budget is pretty small but I saw a saginaw 3 speed for a hundred bucks on craigslist. I'd really appreciate anyone's opinion.
  17. Which muncie shifter head?

    Drivetrain & Performance
    I'm planning on converting my '70 from auto to manual. Do you have to match the shifter head to the trans? Say if i bought a 65 m20 do i use a 65 shifter head or one for a Nova? Im assuming any head will mount up its just different shifter location issue.
