68 camaro connect tranny

this the orginal tranny a 350 but the motor and tranny were out of car. it had a 327 orginally. and i am installing a 396.. but i may have bitten off more than i can chew.. another question,, the cooling lines to the rad cooler. does it make a difference how it hooks up to the rad?? is there any literature or magazines that i can get. i have a 68 motor manual. but it has few details. thanks very much for your help.

If its the same tranny, the linkage will be the same...

About the cooling lines, some say it matters, some dont...I dont think it matters.

I might be looking at a larger rad for the 396....thet were harder to cool

The bottom line on the transmission,is the to cooler line,top is return,at the trans.

As long as there is not an an inline filter or auxiliary cooler that must flow in one direction only,you should,as poncho62 says,be able to hook the cooler lines up either way.

I am curious why the linkage is confusing you. Did you not have to pull the original set up out? Did you obtain this car with no motor or trans in it?

My 70 Chevelle had the floor shift (auto) and had a cable to the tranny....There was a little bracket that bolted to a couple of the trans pan bolts for it to fit into. I imagine the Camaros would be the same.

Mine also had a cable for the gas pedal linkage, but if I remember right, the 67s had a linkage.........

About the kickdown linkage...T350 uses the cable, you need a bracket at the carb

Check out www.yearone.com on their home page-left side there is a Camaro tab follow it to the first gen. page. They will have assembly manuals and probably the parts you will need to reassemble your car.
