    The transmissions seem to swap fine, but now I'm trying to interchange the clutch/brake pedal assemblies. They seem to be a lot different. Anybody know if there is an easy way to make the exchange. It looks to me that I could easily retain the brake pedal from the 71 blazer with the TH400 setup, just take off the cluthch pedal. The 73 is the problem. Would my best bet be to find the brake/clutch from a 73 body style?

    Here's an article that one member did.

    I'm in the process of swapping my auto for a 465/205 combo.
    I've got it all in now and will be doing the clutch/brake pedals on Thursday.

    From what I see, you need the clutch/brake pedal assembly out of a 73 to 80. That's what I'm using.

    That one rod that the clutch pedal pulls is very worn and the local dealer wants $70 for it! yikes!
