So anyway I have my 302 chevy with a 4 speed sitting in the car right now. But I have 1 big problem in that it seems to be sitting a bit to high at the moment. I bolted up 1 of the hooker headers I have for the car, its the correct one for the car too and not only does the flange at the end hit the floor, but there is no way I could get an exhuast pipe past the trans crossmemember.
Here is what my car has now, its just a 302 chevy I have the correct mounts for it, the top motor mounts were the original ones used with the car, and the frame mounts are the correct part number for the application. Its all bolted in correctly.
We put the trans in afterwards as we had to replace the clutch fork so we finnaly did that today. The transmission is a muncie 4 speed, that we probably have the wrong linkage for but thats another problem later.
We have a lakewood bellhousing then the trans. The next problems arise when we get to the trans crossmember. Im not sure If I even have the correct one for my application, they only list a th-400 one and one for everything else. The mount seems to be the correct one but I dont know anymore.
The shifter linkeage barely has enough room to shift as it is at the moment, since the way the instructions said to do it was not how the parts worked as it said "bend the rods if needed". We got past that we though but of course not.
The clutch fork has no room to move as it is right now with the trans bolted in where it stands. What should I be looking for right now, none of the mounts are that expensive and I can check to make sure they are all correctly easily, but what the heck is the problem. Any ideas or suggestion's would be greatly appreciated. I so wnated to get the car ready to start but now another problem arises.
If any other info is needed just ask, I really wanna get this fixed quickly as I am sick of these bad days where nothing gets done
