Transmission swap question

How does something like putting a Toyota 5-speed behind a SBC 350 work? I mean, do you use a Toyota clutch + pressure plate, and get the Chevy flywheel machined? I'm just thinking...

There are two different ways to do this. If you use the Novak adapter plate ($390), then you'd need:

Stock Chevy flywheel
Stock Chevy Bellhousing
Stock Chevy pressure plate
Stock Chevy throwout bearing
Advance Adapters 10.5" clutch disk (fit's Toyota splines)
Advance Adapters Toyota to GM pilot bushing

The Novak plate would ONLY work with the Supra Turbo R154 and 96 and later Toyota V6 transmissions. (Earlier versions have shorter input shafts)

If you go for the Advance Adapters parts, you get a custom bellhousing with a special slave cylinder ($450), clutch disk and all the rest. It requires an off the shelf 153 tooth flywheel. Once again, if you have a Supra Turbo or 96 and later Toyota tranny, you have to use the Jeep to Chevy bellhousing but you must use the clutch disk with the Toyota splines. If you have an earlier Toyo tranny, then use the Toyota to Chevy bellhousing. You must also use the Jeep front bearing retainer.

Either way, things start to add up cost wise. Try Ebay. You can get some deals there.
