Re: LS with older transmission

Look at my 70 GTO build. I used a Richmond 6 speed, but using a Muncie is exactly the same parts.

I use the QuickTime RM-6036 for this exact application; LS to Muncie/ST10 etc.

Re: LS with older transmission

There is an article in the April 2019 issue of Hot Rod magazine and on Hot Rod Network on line on this topic.

Re: LS with older transmission

If you look close you might notice they used a truck bell housing with the large bearing retainer hole and didn't use the spacer to center the trans, and put the center line of the trans in line with the center of the crank...

BIG problems coming later on... Crash

So it the trans only being aligned by putting the bolts in? Instead of the bearing retainer fitting snuggly into the bellhousing? If so that’s pretty sketchy

After reading your reply I actually looked at the article/photos and that fact is painfully obvious in the photo of the release bearing and stainless lines. That's a major faux pas on their part!
