Long story short, manual linkage sucks. The clutch fork keeps getting pulled off the throw out bearing. I figured I would just go with Hydrolic and be done. Well after 8 months and no luck finding a good deal on the parts a friend offered me a 700R4/208 combo. I am really considering going this route by I am worried it won't last. I just built a stock 396 big block with Fuel injection. Right now I have 4.10s and 37 inch tires. My plans are to go 6.17s or 7.17s and 42s down the road. I guess I would just like to here from some people that have done it. Throw the 700r4 in or hold off till I can find Hydrolic?
