'82 Transmission Change
« on: August 17, 2018, 11:52:45 AM »
I got this Ď82 from my buddy so I didnít look it over much but as soon as I got it home I realized it didnít have a transmission.
 It has what looks like a very new 350 in it. Car is originally an automatic. What kind of transmission do I need with the 350 and how much needs to be done to swap it to a manual if I wanted to go that option.

Mine had 350th with lock out I think now I would put 700r4 for the overdrive . Make sure to hook up detent cable and adjust the make shifter cable and selector so the gears will read right.
