Tips to install a BW Super T-10 in a auto '67

Auto to Manual conversion using a Borg Warner super t-10 4 speed transmission in an automatic 67.

Id like to provide some helpful information when installing a super T-10 in a first gen camaro.

1. The stock 4 speed/pwrglide/T350 crossmember will work with no modifications necessary.
2. The driveshaft does not need to be shortened but a Turbo 400 style yoke needs to be installed in place of the 4 speed/pwrglide/T350 yoke.
3. Hurst installation kit 3738609 with shifter 3914339 should be used. But, mounting plate 1957773 will give you a much better shifter location. So you should use all the parts in the 3738609 kit except for the mounting plate and the spacer. You will need to bend the 3rd/4th gear rod slightly to avoid interference with the 1st/2nd gear rod.
4. Some slight tunnel cutting will be necessary (if you had auto floor shift). My pictures show too big of a hole. I had a competition shifter with a straight output and switched later to the 3914339.


Parts list:

1. Clutch and brake pedal assy. Along with 4 plastic bushings. 4 bushings are used in an automatic but they need replacing. Note that 67 pedals are different that 68 and 69.
2. Hurst installation kit 3738609 and shifter 3914339
3. mounting plate: 1957773
4. Bellhousing (decide if you want 10 or 11 style and buy the same size components)
5. Bellhousing inspection cover
6. Clutch fork
7. Clutch fork ball stud
8. Clutch linkage kit
9. Clutch pedal bumper
10. flywheel
11. clutch/brake pedal pads
12. clutch/brake pedal pad chrome trim
13. clutch kit (clutch, pressure plate, pilot bearing, through out bearing, alignment tool)
14. shifter boot
15. shifter boot hold down ring

DropTop....

Nice job on this ! Maybe Al, Jim, Dennis or Chris can make a sticky on it. Also, if you measured the cut out on the trans tunnel and made a template, i'm sure those making the conversion will fine it very useful.

SixtyAte,

Thanks. I've been helped many times from this board. But too often people find answers to questions and don't post the results.
I will post some dimensions of the tunnel when I get a chance.

Re: Tips to install a BW Super T-10 in a auto '67

I am doing a similar conversion. from a saginaw three speed to a borg warner 4 speed. Should I have to make any modifications to my console to fit the borg warner shifter. I have the same shifter kit as you do (Hurst installation kit 3738609 and shifter 3914339) the curved shifter install kit.

Re: Tips to install a BW Super T-10 in a auto '67

I did not have to make any mods to the console but on the other hand, my console is not screwed/mounted to the body. It just rests on the carpet. It doesn't move so I don't see a need to screw it down.

Re: Tips to install a BW Super T-10 in a auto '67

Old post indeed but sure was helpful to me, I am trying to do the same thing on a 68 with a 3138 Hurst oem shifter and the shifter was never in the right place until I read this post. Now I am going to order the 1957773 mounting plate and it will hopefully solve my problem. By the way, my Super T10 has a speedo exiting on the right side and my firewall has the hole on the left side, just below the clutch rod, which lenght cable should I use and what should the routing be ? Frank.

Re: Tips to install a BW Super T-10 in a auto '67

I have a 1980 BW Super T-10 that I installed in my 1968 Firebird back in 1981.
It has less than 30K original miles. Still shifts great! Does not need a rebuild.
The old man wants to go back to an automatic.

I have all the pieces necessary to install it in a 67-69 Firebird or Camaro. Tranny, Hurst shifter, frame pieces, bell housing, clutch & pressure plate, foot pedals, wiring harness, yoke.

Anyone interested in buying?

Re: Tips to install a BW Super T-10 in a auto '67

Urgh. I'd buy it in a second at the right price, even though I have a bunch of other, more important projects. I hate the powerglide! Too bad you're way up in the Great White North.

I bought my daughters a New Beetle from VA 2 years ago and had it shipped up.

I will post pictures later in the week.
