Yes after 2 seasons with the the 4r70w its going out, sold already. So I got a hold of a TKO500 a few weeks ago. Changed the sync to carbonrings, forkpads, inputshaft bearing etc. Did an overhaul and now its back together. Picture of the install will come :)

The 4r70w Performed perfect I just always wanted a stick shift. When the TKO surfaced I had to grab it :)

Nice! Please document your install Rob, very interested to see how you solve the pedals swap, what mods are necessary in tunnel etc..

Looking forward to read about it, good luck!

Okay so far

RAM Hydraulics is my choice here. Measure properly for the shims. Its in some minor fixes and cutting bolts that are to long.

Thanks for documenting this Rob!

Out of curiosity, did you need to modify the QT bellhousing to get the runout in spec or was it good to go as received?

Thanks!

Thanks for confirming. I have not used one yet but have heard good things about their quality.

I can't see the logo on the pedal, can you share the MFG of this part?

Thanks!

I have that malwood with their hydraulic throw out bearing. Great piece. Have about 800 miles on it with zero issues.

'72 "mach" and a bunch of other stuff.
I had to trim mine some. Also had to customize the Scott drake roller bearing kit to make it fit to convert the auto part to a manual pedal box.

The original bracket had to be trimmed in 2 places, and there was no bushing in the hole. I just welded a washer to center the bolt. Now its fine. Bolt on ... not really :)
