New to forum

Hello I’m drew and I’m new to this forum. I just recently bought a 67 Chevelle and I am a newb compared to master mechanics on here. I will definitely have a lot of questions along the way. I will attach pictures so you can all see it but let me tell you all more about it. It has a sbc 400 with a turbo 400 transmission in it. My question is, I want to make this a manual transmission, does anybody know what would fit well for my 400 and the car?

progress has little to do with speed, but lots to do with direction

Welcome to the forum. Look for a 71 to 74 muncie 4 speed, you can reuse your driveshaft and yoke from the TH400 if its a short tail. Pedals and linkages just a bolt in swap. Have to drill the firewall for the clutch rod, cut a hole in the floor for the shifter. jim

Oops, dont forget a correct 400 flywheel thats externally balanced, a iron nose starter, bolts and correct bell housing. jim

Thank you guys for all the info. Jim, does it specifically have to be from a 71-74? If so, why? Am I looking for a m21? M22?Thank you

Welcome to Team Chevelle from another 67 owner

Why changing to a Manual ?

I love my 3 speed TH400 for the Track and wish I had a 4 speed Auto 4L80 for the Hwy Cruzin

After market 5 speeds would be a better choice if you want a Standard for/with great Hwy Cruzin
