5 speed swap is fighting me!!

It seems like one thing after another. First the throw out bearing was cracked. Then the driveshaft I ordered was too long. This is the second shaft i've gotten thats the wrong length! I got the trans out the first day. Flywheel and clutch on and the pedals swapped on the second day. Lost a day to having to order a throwout bearing. Going to lose a day or two to have this shaft modified. Doing it all myself in the driveway sucks! Sorry had to vent.....

i ordered a rear shaft from a yard in VA that said it was from a 133" w/b. Its too long for my truck by about 5" I can only assume its from a ECSB. Everything is in except for the rear shaft and I need to put the interior back together. Just frustrating.

Around here its the price thats fighting me. A guy here wanted 1700$ for the tranny, master and slave cylinder, and a used clutch.

Its worth it though. I have driven an obs with the 5 speed and automatic(4.10 gears). There is no comparison is power and drivability. 5 speed wins hands down.

I scored on craigslist big time. I got my trans out of an f-super duty with the driveline mounted e-brake for 100 bucks. I got my cross member pedals and front shaft for 100 bucks and the floor pan for 10 bucks. Its taken me a better part of a year to find everything though.

Finally got it done and drove it today. Cost me 68 bucks to have the driveshaft shortened. Drives awesome and I love it. Fired right up first try.
