Hi Jim,
What do you mean it isn't used for on-going conversation? I thought that is the point of a Sticky thread. And I wouldn't know if a PM was sent, etc. since the post is still active, unanswered, correct?

Do you still have your '69?

Here on Team Camaro, The sticky's are used for mostly static info, though they are rarely closed. This particular sticky has been the home of a lot of extra conversation over a pretty long period of time.

And no, here on Team Camaro, a 4 month old question is not active.

Re: TKO Sticky????

"Speedometer hook up
The TKO is set up to work with either your stock mechanical speedometer or an aftermarket electric speedometer. When using the stock mechanical speedometer gauge, the solution is to use a custom speedometer cable with an integrated adapter that is designed for use with the TKO"

So this statement means the factory speedo cable wont work.My speedo isnt working and need to try and fix

Re: TKO Sticky????

Scott, this question would be MUCH better asked as a new thread, rather than tagging onto this sticky post.

My TKO came with a speedo bullet that fit the original Camaro cable.
I has a lil short adapter thing in it that fits onto the camaro speedo cable and into the tko/Ford speedo gear.

Re: TKO Sticky????

I thought I'd ad this after Scott's question above. I don't recall any discussion on speedo cables. Mine (which I bought used) came from Mike Pell, and uses this adapter. It still uses a Ford speedo gear, and the Camaro cable screws right on.

Re: TKO Sticky????

I wanna run a tremec 600 in my 550 hp chevy but hear they don't shift.Does the Liberty mods make it shift floor board deep AND be able to downshift as a street car needs? Sell me one that will shift-downshift-hold up to 600 ft lbs/hp...

Re: TKO Sticky????

I wonder if the mods Liberty performs ( not faceplate)makes this trans usable for shifts at 7000 + rpm and still be able to downshift as needed for street driving.

Re: TKO Sticky????

Want to run the tko 600 behind my lsx engine in a 68 camaro.. Is there a crossmember that works with the ATS engine mounts? or any mounts?.. What throwout, bellhousing, clutch package would work with this.. I have a later camaro slave cylinder in it already...
Anyone know??

Re: TKO Sticky????

I have installed a TKO 600 in my 69 using a Lakewood scattershield which at this point I am thinking was a bad mistake. Originally I installed the scattershield without dialing it in.
Car had a annoying drivetrain vibration. Pulled tranny and indexed as required. Put back together and the vibration is gone. Problem solved, well not so quick. It now seems as though as components heat up the vibration comes back. How likely is it that the scattershield is distorting as it heats up? Is anyone having problems with Lakewood Scattershields? Who is making the best Scattershield/bell housing at this time?

Re: TKO Sticky????

zschary and Chug you guys need to start your own individual threads with your own questions. They will be lost in this thread.
Start new threads and the folks will be happy to give you their advice.

Check out this thread and you can pull up a large image of the T56 PerfectFit kit.

I replied to your other thread a moment ago, and mentioned you should look at the Blue T45RS kit for $1299. (see image below)
Keisler offers a perfectfit RS400 kit for 2nd gen camaros
including a custom crossmember per the Keisler web site.
However the crossmember has yet to be designed...really? Why
advertise something that is not in production?

Re: TKO Sticky????

The OP needs to add dexron III / Mercon spec ATF as recommended (and warranty compliance) oil, as stated by Tremec:
Quote:
We recommend GM synchromesh part # 12345349, or Dexron III / Mercon Spec ATF fluid for all TKO transmissions.
Link to their PDF online which also ships with every transmission:
