    Well, your gonna need the 3 pedal assembly, clutch linkage, prooly have to move your crossmember, lengthen your driveshafts and cut a hole in the floor for the shifter.

    pretty easy to do...I am in the middle of the conversion myself...You need the tranny w/ a t-case that will bolt up to it, new front and rear drive shaft, flywheel, clutch, bellhousing, clutch pedal assembly, linkage (if a manual clutch setup), master/slave cylinder if hydraulic setup...Shift fork, throw out bearing, flywheel cover...those are most of the parts...If you need, I have MOST of the GM part numbers for those parts..

    Not too bad though...let me know if you need any more help or part numbers....

    Hey Fort,
    I might call you on that invitation sometime. Im in that rut debating on 700 to 465 or a 400. Which ever comes along first.

    Brandon...

    Sounds good man...I have a list here of like 15 differnet part numbers...I finally have almost all the pieces I need for the conversion...I even ended up with an extra np205 /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif I think the hardest thing to to will be the pedal assembly...looks like a PITA...but we will see...I am gonna drop the auto this weekend and replace my rear main seal and install the flywheel and clutch...

    Good Luck,

    Chris

    I recently did this on my 85 K5, and had previously converted a 77 K10. Not real difficult, just time consuming. Either getting a donnor truck or having access to a good junkyard is a must.
    Let me know if you have any specific questions.
    Good Luck.
