    I am swapping in a SM465/NP205 in place of my TH350/NP203 and was wondering if anyone had pics of where the clutch rod went through the floor and what the bracket looks like that the Z-bar bolts to on the frame. I have done the search and have found much useful info on this swap but cannot find this little tidbit of info. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

    It is going in my 78 Jimmy. I have looked at the install write up in the tech section but could not find any holes that the rod went through. Thanks for the info.

    I asked this same question a while ago and got the same answer. I bought my truck with a manual and an auto cab, the PO just hacked the floor, its a huge gaping hole with sharp edges and sticking up in parts too. I would love to know what a stock truck floorboard looks like. I dont really think there is a way to seal it either.

    The bracket holes are already drilled in your frame. You gotta remove the rivets to get a used bracket off the frame, or you can buy a new one here...Item CTH 18

    There's no hole for the rod. I just guessed, was way off, and the hole was really big by the time I was done.:doah:
