    Does anyone know if when you put in a 4sp in a 66 down if there is a problem with the linkage for the TC when you put the clutch fork on the pass side.

    In my 69 I put the fork on the drivers side when I put in the 4spd and it was a PIA.

    Without the body on the frame I cannot tell if the passinger side will work.

    Myrle, when I put the one in my 65, I had to cut/notch gusset piece under the floor board to get enough throw. can't see it from above. How's the recovery going? Paul

    Just leave it on the drivers side then.. The 2f bellhousing can have the pivot ball on either side..

    Thanks Guys, I think will put it on the drivers side It will probally be easier than the 69 was without a body on the frame. It just looks a little funky on the Fj40 but works fine.

    Paul, Shoulder is doing good, went to the doc yesterday and he was suprised at all the movement I have with it. I think it was all the Fj45 small parts cleaning that has helped.
