Ok I got it all together and was reviewing my pictures one night and the fill plug looked like it was too low. The next day I double checked by measuring both of my T5s and found that the Camaro was lower by about an inch. I believe that GM did this to accommodate the 15 deg. tilt of their T5. Luckily GM and Ford used the same case casting for their T5s and there is a boss at the same height as my S10 T5. Unfortunately to drill and tap it l had to remove the top cover and turn it upside down to keep chips from getting into the gears.

In a previous entry I didn’t have a picture of the speedo gear and clamps installed. So here you go. Sorry but it is only two entries off.

A wise man once told me give a lazy man a hard job and he will find an easy way to do it. The 36 does not have a lot of room to remove and install a transmission and that I do most of the work myself I decided to make a sling to support the transmission from above with my engine hoist.

I duct taped the shim in place and laid out the point for the hole. I bought a 5/32” carbide drill bit and drilled both the shim and shaft. I mounted the speedo gear and collars on both sides. I used some red loctite on the threads to lock the collar screws in place.

I posted my dilemma on Hotrodders.Com as to weld the shaft and machine it down to size or to use a shim and clamp. The opinions were to use the shim method. I needed a .045 shim. I searched around the shop and found a piece of 1” conduit that was a close match for what I needed for a shim. I cut off a piece and chucked it up in my Smithy. I used a live center to support the end. I carefully turned it down until it was .045 thick. I cut out the weld seam to make it uniform. I machined a couple of collars to hold it in place.
