wow. thought i'd get a better response.
foot pedal assembly for in cab. it's cheaper in my opinion to go to a junk yard and get an assembly. then what else...ah yes the hydraulics (i.e master and slave cylinders). this is bought as a complete, pre bled assembly depending on where you buy.what does it entail? besides clutch, bellhousing, and tranny.
What did all this cost and how hard was finding the right parts?
for me it was involved and time consuming for these simple reasons.Thats awesome... I would love to do the swap... How hard was it? Could a weekend warrior do it?
Also, did you take any pics?
it's a rather simple concept in what a person has to change to convert it over to a manual, buuuuuut it is involved as far as time is concerned. It can be done in a weekend but this is if you know exactly what you are doing, are experienced, and don't hit any snags along the line. which pretty much means everyone except me could do it in a weekend or two:lol4:Very good explanation milesdodgeboy! Doesn't sound like a whole bunch involved. My buddy may be looking into doing this, as he can't seem to keep autos alive. Lol
Hey guys i appreciate the info:yourock:I am not looking to do anything extreme my truck is all stock now except for I cut out my muffler and ran my exhaust strait back. I have held off on upgrades mostly because I was concerned my stock auto tranny wouldn't hold up. I want to start playing with some after market performance upgrades but nothing extreme I still want to use my truck that is why I'm keeping it for pulling tractors and cattle trailers and stuff I just want it to be bad a$$ at doing it any info. will be greatly appreciated.back to your auto to manual conversion what do you want to do play wise do you want to drag race, sled pull, or dyno cause if you want to drag race id stick with the auto so you can do boosted launches but manuals are better for sled pulling and depending on the dyno but its your choice
Am I understanding you right your suggesting I buy another truck with the manual tranny and sell my truck since I really don't have any goodies on it?I've done this very swap in other vehicles and have learned that it's often far cheaper/better to buy another vehicle with the drivetrain you want, swap over all of your goodies, then re-selling the now surplus vehicle. It sounds a bit extreme, but financially it works out better in the end. It works out even more in your favor if you value your time at anything over a $1 an hour. Just because you can do something (the swap) doesn't mean you should do it.
