Anyone shift over 6500 without upgrade tko
Hydraulic cylinder and clutch pedal recommend
Thanks
You're probably remembering me. Ran an iceman with my super t-10 4 speed, he said it was a 4-speed.
I put in my TKO and the same crossmember worked. I just had to shift it around a little. The factory cross member uses 2 bolts per side, the Iceman uses only 1 per side, you can shift it around a little for different configurations.

Meat gets a little off topic in his like 40+ page thread, its a simple swap.

Want to use hyd clutch set up
Anyone use sick speed or john bzdel pedal (how to contact him)
Much appreciated thanks
Here is another pedal option. I retained my mechanical linkage, and will try and keep it as long as I can. I cannot comment on quality of JohnB, or this pedal, but this is just another option

Home made crossmember I think my motor is lower in the back than it was with the Muncie because the TKO is really close to the trans tunnel. TKO doesn't shift as good as the Muncie did but it doesn't sound like the rods are going to fly out of the motor driving on the highway either.
What fluid are you running? I hear the fluid has a LOT to do with shift quality. Mine glides into gear man.
I'm using the penzoil version of syncomesh

Indeed. I was actually just watching a video recently about synchros, etc., and always follow the mfr's suggestion, the synchro/cone composition dictates what oil you need, and if you use the wrong one you could have problems shifting, or worst case, wind up ruining the synchros.
