BTW, the ZF ts a bad azz trans, and although cost more, is well worth the money.
You can tell them when you look at them, they have PTO (power take off ) plates on them

Awesome. It might be a little while before I can get to actually do it, but I'll certainly let y'all know how it goes.

Keep us posted, and let us know what you end up with.

Around here, a good ZF will run $12-1600
Watch for too much play in the head shaft. The way you tell, the whole front case will be wet with oil, Or if you happen to be lucky enough to drive it, it will "rattle" at an idle

I found a site that sells both in brand new condition. Once I decide on which I want, I'll get in touch with them for one.

What gears and tires are you running?..that seems really high!

Not a clue on the gears. I believe the tires are stock. I was so busy having fun cruising around in it, I forgot to check before I came to work.

I bought a 61 chevy pu one time that someone had changed the
engine from a 6 to a 350 engine,but it was a auto trans.,My problem
I had with it was,any thing over 60 mph,it sounded like I needed
another gear.
I think the gear ratio in the rear end was matched for the 6 cyl engine,
an the spd of that era...So you might have to take that in consideration.

Keep in mind your going to need a lot of other stuff

Crossmember and trans mount
Front half of driveshaft
Clutchslave inside transmission and throwout bearing
hydro line
master cyl
clutch pedal and mount
There is also a firewall plate from 80-87 to stiffen the firewall, you will have to make something

I think the new transmission is a great idea, but you are still going to be saving some parts up

My uncle has a friend that works at a local transmission shop. I'm going to get with him to make sure I've got everything and have help putting it in.
