|Current Average Estimated Wait Time for New Orders
I bought this unit and mated it up to a 01' 4.3L Vortec coupled to a SM-420. Installation was straight forward and caution tags came installed on all important components.
One issue I had was the castings for the bellhousing bolts were taped in the opposite order IE threaded on top when should have came drilled and drilled on bottom when should have been taped, this was not an issue for me as I simply taped the necessary holes for the bell housing. ( I may have had an odd bell housing as I picked this one up at the local junk yard).
The throw on the shifter is very short and smooth! The unit makes a noticeable whine while in high gear; the noise is not unbearable but you may have to raise the volume on your radio a notch or two.
I say this but it is important for me to note it is installed on a 71' FJ-40 chassis with minor sound-dampening upgrades to the cab.
