Best manual transmission for smallblock
I have a 1986 chevy 305 smallblock. I do not want a automatic trans im looking for a good manual transmission. What are some good manual transmissions for this engine.

How many forward speeds do you want? 3, 4, 5 & 6 are the practical choices.

NOTE: The term "the best" is a very broad statement and very subjective. Many have opinions. Describe in detail what you "want".

I would say smooth ride and good gas, for the street. 4 or 5 would seem good.

Richmond gear for a Super t-10 if you want a 4 speed..5 speeds come in two is 5th direct and the other is 5th overdrive..which one depends on the rear gear you are running..
