    How hard and what does it take to swap the pedals of a automatic out and a manuel set in it's place?
    the swap concerns getting rid of a 700r4/208 combo for a 465/205 set? /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif

    If you get pedals from similar truck its should me easy swap.The hardest part is Z bar for clutch and bracket on frame.Look how it is on similar truck or go with hydro. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Look up in your dash... you should see a place to hang the pedal there already. I would find the pedal, brackets, springs, etc from a yard truck, and then install a NEW master cylinder into the firewall. The spot should already be in the firewall... you should just have to knock out the hole for it. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    IIRC...

    It's not a difficult swap at all. Just get everything clutch, pedal, and linkage related from a similar bodystyle year, and it all bolts in.

    Chevy's are so simple!
