Careful not to break the tab that holds the front plate on. Also the levers without the knobs are sharp. Don't ask me how I know these two things. - Dave

Thanks for the tip Dave. The kit just showed up (old air parts) so maybe this weekend I'll attempt it.

I just happened to see your comment on the extra fender I have. Let me know if you would like to see it.

I've completed the lever replacement. Not much to it, other than like Dave mentioned be careful not to break the tabs. They're pot metal and fragile, and even being careful I did partially break one. Also in my research guys have been grinding off the rivets and that isn't necessary. Just break off the spring washers and they'll drop out. After that it's just R&R. I used the opportunity to clean up the slides and the linkage and also lube everything up good.

I spent the rest of the day wiring which doesn't look much different when you're done but takes forever. But every connector finished and plugged in is one step closer.

Transmission time! Merry Christmas to myself. SST has been working with me for the past year on my kit and I pulled the trigger 2 weeks ago.

Dropped the engine off the stand and used some emery to clean up the pilot bearing bore. Then installed the bearing; o-ring side goes toward the transmission.

My clutch kit is an LS6 kit from Rock Auto. Includes everything but the flywheel bolts, which I got from Summit Racing in another order months ago. Installed the flywheel and bellhousing and then swept the rim and face. I had .005 TIR on the rim and .002 on the face; both within spec.

Cleaned all the oil off the flywheel and pressure plate. Installed and torqued to 52 ft-lbs. Installed my throw out bearing (slave cylinder since it's hydraulic) and measured the clearance. Without shims it's on the tight side so I'll let it ride. Slave cylinder is a 2002 Camaro part also from Rock Auto.

Lifted the trans and slid into place (ate my Wheaties this morning) and torqued trans down to 35 ft-lbs.

I've got a little work to do on the firewall and then I'll wrestle this into place tomorrow!

I did it. She's shoehorned in there. My lady gave me an extra set of hands and apparently was snapping pictures. For those interested, this is what an LS with a T56 and the complete Holley install kit looks like. Lots of room with no tunnel mods.

Everything that could fight me did. Could not get it in with any front metal on due to picker reach. Had to remove shifter and both headers. Had to modify the spreader bar mid lift because the crank was contacting picker. But she's in and secure and no damage was done; thank the Lord.

I did mock the shifter location using the center console. Cut an initial square too small and then whittled the opening just large enough to get the shifter through.

Most of the mechanical stuff I have on hand is squared away. So it's the really time consuming and uninteresting task of wiring. Finished the back of the car; made it much more difficult by going with the LED taillights.

Re: 69 rustbucket rebirth

It looks like your shop is getting bigger. No more engine and transmission against the wall. The radiator and condenser are no longer in a box.

Now the hard part begins. Where are those little screws that hold the wires in place? Sometimes I look for hours for a little screw or clip.

Looks good!

It's surprising how much bigger the shop feels with everything getting installed into the car. Now it's details..and hours of wiring.
