DriveTrain / Re: t10 swap to 5 speed help please.

Thanks,  but I really don't want to mess with the rear end, and I just had the trans rebuilt.
Looks like I might need to bite the bullet & get a tko500.
Not sure what all I would need with it tho.

I've made a few posts here and other forums but a 2.73 rear would work for budget highway gears.   I have a 2.73, matching speedo gear and trans rebuild kit I could sell you as a package.

I have read several posts on this topic, as I'm sure this has been discussed many times, but have not been able to find what I need to know. Maybe I'm just missing it as I am a novice on this smart phone.
I have a 79 400 4spd with 3:23 gears. Engine is at 3000 rpm doing 70 mph. I would like to add a 5spd, but don't have $3100+ for a TKO 500 set up. I am confused as to what the other options are.
I just finished a complete nut & bolt restoration on this car and would like to use the existing console, etc.
Any assistance and input would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance.

the engine is just waiting for the heads to get ready


 
Had .047 taken off of them and cleaned up the runners and chambers. Just need to freshen up the seat, paint them and assemble them before I can put the engine back together.



My valley pan was pretty rusted out

I figured I might as well fix it instead of finding another one.

20 minuttes later I had made a bowl exactly like the piece I cut out.

In it went and presto!
new valley pan, ready for paint :-)

Ohh man.. i wish it were only a exhaust leak!! 

I'm just "hoping" that all the new parts are just finding their place..
and eventually when broke in there will be no more lifter tick on start-up..
