Hi everyone. Just wondering if anyone has done a 3spd, column shift to a P/G swap on their 1st gen? I have a '65 with a 194, and 3spd that I want to change to a P/G. I have the column now, and a P/G, but the trans came out of a '63 Biscayne, so I know the gears wont work with my car. Anyone have some suggestions/tips? I don't want to go to a TH350 or other newer type trans, as I want "originality". Thanks in advance for any and all help/tips
Paul

GM only had two gear sets 1.76 and 1.82. Just pull out the input shaft and measure it.
1.76 will be 12 7/8 long (and the stronger of the two)

1.82 will be 12 5/8 long.

Hope this helps some.......

Thanks Bob. Should help, when I get around to it as I'm in the middle of having to move right now.
Thanks again
