Doing the same conversion right now. Got a lot of help from the guys on this site. They sent me pictures, Drawings, layouts for the tunnel hole etc. Give me a yell at [email protected] and let me know what you need.
I am learning this is kind of an expensive conversion.
Are you going 4 speed Manual or 3 speed automatic?
If you have a column shift you are probally running a 2 speed powerglide. Great strip trans but sucks on the street.
If you are going to a 3 speed the trans will run around $1200 for a Built TH400
I am also converting from a column to console but on an automatic. I need to know what harness runs from the fuse box to the harness in the console. and also will this harness allow me to use my current steering column until I can afford the correct one.
The console mounted shifter includes the park lock out switch. You should be able to keep this on the steering column, if you re-connect the linkage for the transmission lock out, and don't mind not having the lights on the console. otherwise an adaptor type harness should be available from somewhere.
I hate to see people spending $400.00 for a tilt column. Many GM columns will fit with a slight modification to the transmission linkage lever on the column. And the special splined flange for the rag joint. It's much more economical to get a junkyard column and do this, Obviously, if your not going original. You can add the newer style column dimmer switch, I even added the column mounted intermittant wipers, (slightly more work, but a nice feature)
