I finally was able to test out the new manual conversion tonight. I have had many things going on at once with the car and finally finished them.
The trans works beautiful. Full manual and shifts the instant I move the lever. I have bought pro built trannys that never shifted this good.
Thanks again Crosley.

pros - cons for street use? do you need a full manual shift trans on the street?

Crosley, thread might be old, but popped up just as I was going to search the topic. Would love to see the photo's, etc, as I'm about to build the 400 for my drag car and would rather do the mods myself than buy a kit. Been inside a 400 several times, so I'm familiar with them.
Any chance you've got instructions on doing REVERSE pattern at home? or TRANSBRAKE?, I've got a milling machine.
If not, I'll go forward pattern if you can email the info, Thanks in advance, Eric

This is an interesting thread. I'm glad it's been resurrected.

Are there any similar modifications for full manual on a 700r4? I know there are aftermarket valve bodies available, but are there modification options also?

thanks,
dh

Nope. Still says you don't receive emails. I did send you one, though from the addy you gave me.

Does the valve body have to be removed to perform this operation? Or, just drop the pan?

On edit: Not the manual conversion. The manual low hear hold. Can that be done without valve body removal?
