Pilot bearing or worn gear teeth

As far as a tranny swap to an auto, it's a pain in the a$$.
I,ve done it on a couple 70's muscle cars and I'd say only do it if your wantin a project otherwise sell the truck and buy one with an auto.

hmm... does it pop out of gear. If it is only problems going into gear I would think maybe it is just the wear pads on the shift forks...

Converting from manual to auto shouldn't be too hard. Another member here had a post about converting his... I'll try to find it..

I don't know man, hopefully somone with a little more knowledge on this will chime in.

That trans is pretty easy the take out, could take to a shop so they could have a look see, and check those cluch components out.

YOu said you were having problems with your clutch.

Could it be maybe that the clutch isn't dis engaging whenever you push the pedal in, and vice versa?

I was going to ask you if the shift lever itself was real sloppy in the top cover or if it was tight, right up until you said this. I've seen shift levers so worn they could hardly be shifted, felt like you were everywhere except where you should be. Bent, worn, or broken shift forks will cause these kinds of problems too. Any metal in the trans fluid or have you checked yet.
