Question

Does anyone make a bellhousing/ throwout bearing for a T-56 that allows the use of the stock clutch linkage or do i have to use hydraulic?

Sallee Chevrolet offers a T56 that uses manual clutch linkage. I don't know if they offer the parts separately or only with their tranny. You could give them a call at 541/938-5562 and find out. They also offer a mechanical speedo drive in theirs that does not require a conversion box. If you call them, I would be intersted myself if they offer it by itself. Hope this helps

Excuse my spelling, but Red over at McLeod has been producing some new scattersheilds for the OE and aftermarket trany's. You might want to give him a buzz. I'll have to get to the house and add his Phone# when I see my Rolladex.

jvolk81,

There is a company that makes a kit it includes bellhousing and hydraulic throwout bearing it's about $560 if memory serves correctly. I can provide more info about the company when I get home tonight. I found that I already posted the info try this link

My concern was in keeping the stock mechanical linkage. I dont really want to go to a hydraulic unless i have to.

You must go with the hydraulic set up. I did.

As chacane67 said Mcleod is supposed to have a scattershield that will bolt a production T-56 to an older style block that, I believe will retain the mechanical linkage. WEIRs hot rod products has a heat treated aluminum b-housing that will work like Mcleod b-housing only youll have to go with the juice clutch,thats the one for$560 The aftermarket T-56 at SALLES can be drilled to fit older b-housings,has a mechanical speedo and a different length input shaft which allows it to be used on the older b-housings ,which gets you mechanical linkage.Of course it costs considerably more than used production model!
