J4strack AutoGear, where is the best place to get all the parts needed? I also bought off the shelf m10x40mm bolts for the bell housing to the tranny, will that be ok?

I also need the slip yoke.
Would you need anything else beside a straight driveshaft if going to a 9" rearend in a SB1934 kit car?

J4strack AutoGear, thanks i will check that out, I have sourced all the bolts to connect my t56 to the 383 motor, waiting on the flywheel to come back from getting turned down, the i will start bolting the two together. Once i get the motor/trany in the car, then the real work will start. I think i found a friend to help due to my lack of time. All the help and info has been great!!

AutoGear If you're using the external slave cylinder, you need to make sure you have the spacer/bracket for the slave.
You also need to have the clutch pivot 'T-nut' which clips into the fork and allows it to pivot on a bolt (called the pivot)
PN for the T-nut: 13-86-149-001
PN for the bolt: 13-86-183-004
PN for the fork: 13-86-596-004
PN for the bracket/spacer: 13-86-172-002

Here is a diagram; you're interested in B8, B9, B10 and B-13. In the picture, 9 & 10 are reversed but the part numbers are correct.

All the above part numbers are current Tremec (TTC) numbers. I can get you the GM numbers if you need them.

J4strack i have a 86 or newer block, with a one piece rear main seal, 96 t56 , so it should work ok.

I am missing the clutch fork, but found one for sale. Are there any other parts besides the hydrulic setup?

05-31-2011 11:45 AM
RippinRon Ok but what year? The 96 engine has a one piece real main seal and uses a flywheel for the pull style clutch. If your block is 85 or earlier you will need a special (pricey) flywheel and lt1 style clutch. Just trying to make sure you have all your bases covered. I have a ls1 style t56 and the trans to bell bolts are metric m10 x 1.5 x 40mm grade 8.8, I'm assuming they are the same for yours but check.

J4strack i have a 383 steel block motor for the 96 t56.

Are the fly wheel bolts the 7/16" x 1" long fine thread?

clutch bolts 5 1/16" corse thread x 3/4" long?

Block has 3/8" corse thread for the motor mounts? grade 8 ok?

RippinRon The 93-97 camaros had a lt1 which uses a flywheel that is different from the regular sbc one. What year is the 350 your are using?

bigjon88 One is your VSS one is your back up lights and reverse lock out

T56 from a Camaro

Thanks for the help.

I bought a tranny pulled out of a 96 camaro, it has 4 wire plugs on it. I am guessing one will be a electric speed sensor, one backup light, next gear selector, and one tranny temp. Do yall know the use and location of these sensors?
05-31-2011 01:19 AM
bigjon88 you can also get the wiring cheap on ebay that is where i got mine at...
05-30-2011 09:00 PM
RippinRon For the pigtails check here. For the shifter fork here. The flywheel bolts are 7/16 and the bellhousing to block are 3/8 I believe. Buy some arp flywheel and clutch bolts. The tranny to bell are metric i'm pretty sure, I can look at mine tommorow and let you know. What t56 do you have? LT1, LS1, GTO?

J4strack Is there any place to find a manual for list of the bolts sizes? I am sure guy who mess with 350's know what they are by heart. Thanks
