Inline 6 Transmission Fitment

Good Day and Happy New Year fellow Hotrodders! Question if you please. I have a Chevy Inline 6, 250 cube from a 1969 Camaro. I want to put it in my Essex Coupe Rod and use a T5 from a chevy S-10. Question is, what do I need to couple these together? Thanks. oldrodder43

your best bet is to go to the Inliners web site www.inliners.org and do a search for t-5 in the drivline forum.. There is a lot of info including pictures and text explaining every step of the process.

The input shaft on the S10 is course splined and longer. You also have issues with the hub clutch disc hitting the front bearing retainer, shifter placement, and mounts. The T-5's were normally used with a hydraulic clutch and switching to an older system requires some engineering. All being said, it's not a bolt in but it's not overly difficult. Did it in my '63 Nova wagon behind a 250 6cyl.
