T-350 manual?

So I’m pretty new to working on cars but have recently bought a 78 Nova to start wrenching on. It’s a 305 with a th350 with column shift. I want to convert the transmission to a manual without the expense of a whole swap. How is this done? What parts do I need? If someone could explain or provide a link that explains this that’d be amazing.

Do you mean a manual valve body for your t-350 or a manual transmission.

Be a little more clear....do you want to convert the current TH-350 to a manual valvebody, no automatic up or downshift features??

Or convert to an actual manual transmission with a clutch??

If you meant manual transmission with a clutch, do you want 3-speed on the column shift, 3-speed floor shift, 4-speed floor shift, or 5 or 6 speed overdrive floor shift??

Hello,
Welcome aboard... where are you located? Our info off to right ====>

IF you just want a 3 or 4 speed on the floor manual transmission with a clutch pedal it's easy because they also came that way from the factory and you can just buy the parts... new or maybe from the junkyard/barnfind used... Do a search for 'how to' articles and videos...

I've been buying factory manuals from Faxon for decades. Here's the factory service manual for the Nova....

Go to YouTuber.Com, search for, "TH350, it's not gonna be good...video 1-2". He tears down a TH350 and talks about what he's doing and will do, and also throws in how to convert a TH350 to full manual shift. Does't really cost anything either.

You can manually shift a stock TH350. We still don't know exactly what the OP is asking.
