    Steve:

    First welcome to the forum.

    I'm pretty sure you don't need to change the bell housing at all. All the ZX trannies fit the early Z's without modification (as far as bolting to the block goes). The...

    I'd be making darn sure that the one that's spot welded is actually holding the insert in that tube tightly!

    I know you're in a spot, but if that insert is loose, and can bang up and down inside...

    Dang headers. Always getting in the way.

    The threads are 10x1.00, not a common bolt size. Buy a chunk of premade brake line with 10x1.00 nuts from any old car parts store and sacrifice it to get a...

    Hey Ed, glad to hear you're still thinking Z cars and expanding the applications.

    A tough and common problem.

    The solution many choose is to put a right hand end on and change the tie rod to a right one as well. Both sides are exactly the same except for the thread. Just have...
