    I'm still working on my buddies 54 Chevy and planning my next project. I'll probably put the van up for sale this spring and start on the next conquest.

    I got the hear the Plymouth run for the first time in a while. Now i've got a working speedo, gas gauge, raised the rear a bit, and fixed a few other small things. Hopefully there's a test drive going to happen this weekend.

    Well, I took a drive and it’s really nice having a working heater, fuel gauge, speedo, good brakes, and better seats BUT the transmission noise came back after it warmed up. #*&$#!!!!!!
    Guess I’ll take it to the trans shop next week and see what they think.

    These old things seem to have a perpetual list, but it's nice you got some knocked off.

    Iíve got a four speed sitting here; if the trans has to come out again Iím seriously thinking of adding another pedal and shifting for myself.

    I re-read your transmission noise from your ealier post and my 82 Z28 made a noise similar to your only not as severe
    It went away on its own, not a lot of help for you but i think I know the noise your talking about. Mine also sounded like it was coming from the converter.

    Yeah, starts as a chirp, chirp as the car warms up and then ends up sounding like a belt squealing just at idle and finally stays steady through the whole rpm range. Goes away when everything cools off.

    Sweet, what are you going to do for linkage and pedal?

    It’ll be hydraulic; as far as pedals I’m not sure yet. I’ve got a few different sets I’ve accumulated so I’ll make one of them work. The pedal that’s in there now was from a full size Chevy truck.

    A hydraulic throw out bearing really makes the swap easy!

    That's the plan, Dave. Speedway has a conversion kit for about $100. From what I'm reading I should be able to use a 4.8 LS flywheel along with an LS7 pilot bearing and it will be a bolt in.

    Fiero pedals didnít work out; they ended up being too short. I used a set of Jeep CJ pedals in my 51 Plymouth and they worked well so Iím going that route again.

    Nice looking set of pedals! Thanks for doing all the searching and leaving us a good tip on what to look for!
