  1. This is a cool project idea, I'll be following you. I was on Code 504 website and I'd be curious if they ever considered making a conversion package so you could use an original flathead 6 (I will be contacting them). I've got a lot invested in my engine build and tranny swap. If I could drop that into a modern and lowered chassis I'd really be intrigued. Good luck and keep us posted please.
  2. Great sounds straight forward enough, my bushing is on it's way to me as we speak.
  3. I've been doing some micrometer checks on the input shaft and throw out bearing dimensions and it looks like the bushing would have to be machined down a few thousands. Did yours fit without machining?
  4. I'm hoping you guys have some images of the completed 4 speed swap. I'd love to see how your floors turned out. What shifter boot style you're using. For this conversation I don't think it matters if was a T5 swap on an A833. I'd just like to see how cool they turned out.
  5. In my stack of spares I have one from a 1951 Fargo 1/2 ton (not sure if they are the same). Do you have a picture of yours?
  6. Thanks for the feedback, I'm going to reinstall the trans for another mock up session. I really don't want a giant hole in the floor.
  7. I can't speak for the guys that have raised the shifter, but there is a long distance to the floor from the shifter I'm guessing that's why they raised it. I'm also guessing that leaving the pivot point low makes for a rather long throw in the gear changes. Not sure that's why I'm asking.
  8. Sorry about duplicate post but I meant it to be a quote for you two guys. Ok I've spent some time coming up with templates for moving shifter forward. Option "A" is a straight forward move of roughly 5 1/2" toward the bellhousing. Option "B" is more complex moving not only forward 5 1/2" but up 3" as well. I'm inclined to the more simple approach, but I'd like some feedback on why some have raised the shifter position. Both choices obviously involve a modified shifter and shift linkage. Option "A" appears to involve less potential for shift linkage problems.

  10. The exhaust is split stock manifolds, if you look close you should see them in the pictures I've posted. I'll be doing dual exhaust not sure what size yet. I'm guessing something in the 2" - 2 1/4" range nothing too fancy or loud. I want it to rumble, but not be a nuisance to the world.
  11. Aok contact Tim Kingsbury he's a member of this blog.
  12. I changed the air filter setup after some input from Tim. This setup is much less restrictive. It will require some extra work but that's the way things go.
  13. The custom linkage was part of the package. George fabricated the whole works. I will be using the stock gas pedal and throttle cable, at least that's the plan.
  14. I did some mock-up work today, so as promised here's some photos of the tri-power setup with split exhaust. Tons of thanks go out to Tim Kingsbury and George Asche that made this set up possible. As you can see there is a small hole in the firewall and I've still got more carving to do to clear the rear carb, linkage and air cleaner.
