A Saginaw 4 speed has the reverse shift lever on the side cover. A Muncie and T10 have the reverse lever on the tailshaft housing. Just looking at one of the older car 4 speeds you can tell it from a 3 speed. 4 speeds use 3 shift levers and a 3 speed only uses 2.

Well ****.... I don't know how I didn't notice that before... So I have a Saginaw then

Mine is a 2-piece rear main (1981 Camaro Block) and that bell housing is for a 153-tooth flywheel.

So I am still accumulating parts at the moment, starting a new job in a few days so I should be making some more progress here shortly.

Figure I would ask if anybody has run into this problem before... I am trying to find a 2 or 3 Pedal assembly that is floor mounted, cheapest I can find are these Tiltons that are $200 and $400 before another $160-$240 in master cylinders.

Anybody know of anything cheaper or possible a different way to approach this?

I would love a sponsor

Finally got around to starting on the car itself now, considering I have owned it for 2 years now....

Got the engine running but the carb still needs some work, once that is in order I can break in the cam.

Interior is all stripped out now and i'm in the middle of taking out the sound deadening, found a bit of rust and made a few holes myself but nothing that cant be fixed in a few seconds.

Made some seat brackets that I will put in place once I have everything cleaned and painted (the picture is kind of misleading, when installed the longer side sits level, that's how steep the angle of the floor pan is)

If that was my car the top seat belt mounts would be on the parcel shelf in front of the rear window.

Much stronger and less likely to break your back in a big acco.

I am just using those mounts until the cage goes in. And the rear deck is made from 14 gauge steel, that's a far cry from the current mount that goes into a frame cross brace that is almost 1/4" thick.

I've got to ask, do you rally the car of a night?

Those big Hella's must be there for a reason.

This car is an exceptional build! However, you got to get rid of those rubber hood straps at the front. Ya know, you could totally pull off the sleeper look! I've been following this build for quite a while. Keep up the great work!

When she is ready and running I will be doing some night time rally and dirt track racing out in the desert. Not a lot though, I mostly have them on right now for mock up and to make sure I like them there.

I put the straps there because I liked them and they reminded me of Red Pig. At the moment I could put the bumpers back on and make it a sleeper but once the new rear axle and front end goes in its not gonna look stock at all Hope you like it so far, thanks.
