    Did you have to cut your tranny hump to fit it in there? All the write-ups I have found so far are for a SBC and this tranny. I saw a picture were the hump was built out on the side and built up for the shifter.

    are you talking about a 40 or 55??
    no experience with a 40, but there are planty here to give you an answer, as for the 55, yes it will need some hump and floor mods

    Sorry forgot. It's a 71 /40. I have heard that a 1" body lift will make it fit better but I don't really want to do that unless I have to. O well work is keeping too busy to starte on it now, maybe next month.
