    i was making a scouting run at the junkyard today and found a hydro clutch set up on an 85. I just wanted to know if there were any speeds offered besides the sm465 in 1985. Also, the hydrolic parts should work even though they are from a 2wd right?

    <font color="green"> It should work, you need to make sure to get the bellhousing tnad the whole pedal assembly, as well as the more obvious stuff. </font>

    Also, about how much should one expect to pay for something like this at a boneyard? /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    I paid about $175 for the whole setup:
    Peddle assemble
    Bell housing
    fork
    slave cylinder
    master cylinder
    Fluid Resorvior

    I did not get the hydrolic hose that goes from the slave to the master, that cost about $75 throught the dealer

    Josh, I'll let you know Monday what I pay for it. If it isn't too expensive, I may go ahead and grab the other one for you.

    Dunno that they continued to offer the "car" transmission as late as '85. Kinda doubt it.

    Totally different animal though, impossible to confuse with the 465. Car tranny has external shift linkage, 465 is a "top-loader", no external linkage.

    thanks for the help guys. BowtieBlazer and myself are going to meet up and the boneyard tomorrow to grab both hydro setups if they are still there.
