T-56 install with Generation 1 GM small block!
« on: April 01, 2019, 04:38:52 PM »
Hi guys,
It has been awhile since I have been on this site as a member.  I used to be, but I have forgotten all my old information.

I now have a 1980 Firebird Formula in great shape.
It has a 383 stroker - SBC motor in it.
Right now it has a built up 3 speed TH350 in it.  But it has to go I feel the need to shift gears again.

I was wondering if you all could help me with this?
I have done my homework, and have read countless articles pertaining this including posts on this site.

Parts that I have:

LT1  T56 from a 1993 to 1997 firebird/camaro.
shifter attached to the T-56
Hydraulic slave cylinder that came with the transmission.  (need mount)

Parts that I plan to buy:

Centerforce Dual Friction Clutch       P/N: 700107
Centerforce Flywheel             P/N:  DF039020
Pedal assembly brake/clutch - Auto Metal Direct   P/N:  106-w-328  (Jegs)
Driveshaft - plan to cut and balance.

I do need everything else, so help here would be MUCH appreciated!

I'm not sure which T-56 transmission mount is the best/economical?
I've looked at G-Force  P/N:  RCF2L-T56 - but I do not have a local dealer who sells is Fairly priced as I am in Ontario, Canada.

I plan on starting this build this week . so please feel free to message me directly, or on this post!
Thanks in advance!!

I'm VERY SHOCKED THAT NO ONE HERE HAS HAD ANY EXPERIENCE WITH THIS AT ALL?

MAYBE IF THIS THREAD WAS LEFT IN THE GENERAL LOCATION WHERE I HAD IT ORIGINALLY, MAYBE THERE WOULD BE MUCH MORE EXPOSURE?!!

Don't be shocked. It's a dead forum. Lack of response doesn't mean no one has done just that.

THANKS.  I thought it was just me.  It never used to be like this years ago.?
I guess I will have to search out other forums.
