Power steering will be a nice upgrade. My 1974 PS box has a safer style shaft that can telescope on impact. A special universal joint will be used to connect it to the modified original shaft.
SOLD! . . . but I have more!
Let me build one for you!
I have up for sale a very nice Custom Built T5.
This is NOT an ordinary V8 Camaro T5. This was built using very hard to find original Borg Warner parts from 2 different transmissions, a V8 Camaro T5 and an S10 T5. This is a non-world class T5. It is rated for 250 HP and 300ft-lb of torque. It has terrific gearing for a daily driver classic Chevy car or truck.
The Tag ID# is 13-52-070.
This T5 was completely rebuilt by me using V8 Camaro T5 gears together with an S10 main shaft and tail housing. The result is a nice close ratio overdrive transmission that works well in a classic Chevy car or truck with a bench seat and a cable driven speedometer. This is the ideal hybrid combination for a classic Chevy hot rod.
The gears are as follows:
1st = 2.95
2nd = 1.94
3rd = 1.34
4th = 1.00
5th = 0.73
Rev = 2.76
The 0.73 overdrive gear works very well with a 3.73 or lower gear rear axle. I have this same T5 in my C10 truck and the 3.73 rear is a perfect match.
Inspected, cleaned and rebuilt using new bearings, synchros and seals.
This transmission will be ready to bolt onto your bell. It will come with a different shifter handle than shown in the photos.
The factory air cleaner is too big to use with my 1995 Blazer brake booster. The easiest solution is to use a new air cleaner. Now I have plenty of room if I use a #2952 Spectre carb adapter and #4770 Spectre 9" air cleaner. I'll keep using the 1 barrel Rochester B carb since the truck runs so well.
