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.

After all the research I did on the T5s I thought I could swap the S10 (top)main shaft for the Camaro’s. The reason for swapping the main shafts was the location of the speedometer gear. As you can see the main shafts are machined differently. Now my dilemma is how to place the speedo gear on the Camaro’s shaft. I’m kicking around ideas as to how. I might try to clamp some shim stock to the shaft, but I am concerned that it could loosen and destroy the transmission.

Ok I finally got it on my engine stand. Now to get into the guts of this job. As you can see the S10 (top) and the Camaro have two different shifter locations. The top covers are the same except for the shifter shaft, the S10 is shorter (top).

I placed the Camaro trans on the bell and found out things I still had some interference with bolts and that the Camaro trans mount holes where less that ˝” in diameter. I filed down the ear of the transmission and bored out the mount holes to ˝”.
