FOR USING A 1983-1992 VINTAGE T5 5 SPEED TRANSMISSION WITH THE 7 1/8″ LONG INPUT SHAFT AND STANDARD WIDE MUNCIE CHEVY BOLT PATTERN TYPICALLY FOUND IN S10 AND SOME ASTRO VAN & CAMARO.

INSTALLING ABOVE TRANS ONTO A CHEVY 1948-UP TRUCK BELLHOUSING OR 1955-UP CAR BELLHOUSING:

SPACER IS 9GA. (.1495″) THICK STEEL PLATE.

THIS IS TYPICALLY ALL YOU NEED TO PREVENT THE CLUTCH DISC FROM BINDING ON THE INPUT SHAFT SPLINES.

INSTALL PROCEDURE:
1) RUN 1/2″ DRILL BIT THROUGH MAIN CASE MOUNTING HOLES
2) CUT ABOUT 1″ OFF OF BEARING RETAINER COLLAR.
3) IN SOME CASES CUTTING OFF ABOUT 1/8″-1/4″ FROM THE TIP OF THE INPUT SHAFT MAY BE REQUIRED. TEST FIT TRANS WITH SPACER TO KNOW FOR SURE.
4) SANDWICH SPACER BETWEEN TRANS AND BELLHOUSING.
5) ENJOY YOUR NEW 5 SPEED.

MAKE SURE YOU DON’T INSTALL YOUR CLUTCH DISC BACKWARDS!!!!

WHILE THERE ARE THICKER AND MUCH MORE EXPENSIVE SPACERS ON THE MARKET, THE ONLY ADVANTAGE TO THOSE IS THAT YOU WOULDN’T NEED TO TRIM THE TIP OF THE INPUT SHAFT. YOU STILL WOULD NEED TO MAKE ALL OF THE OTHER CHANGES AS LISTED ABOVE, SO THERE IS REALLY NO SUCH THING AS BEING ABLE TO INSTALL ONE OF THESE TRANSMISSIONS WITHOUT SOME SORT OF MODIFICATIONS TO IT.
