    Find a donor truck at a yard and rip out the bellhousing and shift fork, slave and master cylinder, and clutch pedal assembly. Then go home, drop the steering colum and swap the pedal assemblies, drop the tanny and swap bells, maybe a new clutch while you are at it...Thats it...Do a search there is a lot of good info...I think TopOff has a pretty good list going...I did an auto to manual conversion so it was a little different..I have never had to deal with a mech. linkage..

    <font color="blue">OK cool. Does anyone know if the later pedal assembly will bolt in place of the pedal assembly in my 71?
