    I 'm gonna try and cheat & ask instead of research first:

    Are the linkage rods different lengths BETWEEN

    A833 four speeds (or three speeds apples to apples),

    in an engine conversion, any Big-small block-/6 - setup,

    within the same model car?

    (separate cases between: A, B, F bodies, Mopar whatever),

    Does the transmission (say bell housing location, or even under carriage position)
    move forward or backward within the same model car in different power train configurations?

    -thanks for bearing thru all of that, it's hard to ask intelligently with a lack of experience. :)

    I wanna swap a 360 into a slant six volare/aspen and am not sure how the setup positioning will work. I have a 400bb that might go into the car in the distant future.

    thank you for your help!!:burnout::cheers:

    As long as you use an A/F body transmission, the location for linkage will be the same. I think the slant six cars used a longer Z bar so you might have to find a V8 one. Also, I am not sure that the V8 clutch pivot ball is in the same location unless you get an F body specific V8 bellhousing. It might be the same as earlier models, but I am not sure.

    Guess no baby yet? Haven't heard anything.

    Yes Rob, we had the baby. We could not agree on a name for 4-5 months so we ended up naming her after my grandfather: Star. She is my latest project (I think God knows my sense of humor) because she is extremely beautiful & healthy but needs leg braces/harness for a few months to "create sockets in her hips(?)" for her femurs to fit into.
    Hip dysplasia is what the doctor calls it. We have a Pediatric orthopedic surgeon whose daughter had the same thing. If socialized medicine needed to be there for me, one important time, it finally came through. All the quacks say this is no big deal, so I am down with that. She might start off walking bow legged though, so I am gonna buy her some cowboy/cowgirl out fits and video record those first few steps.

    Not allot of sleep. Helping with labor has scarred my mind. I nearly hurt the mother-in-law that stayed with us for three weeks. Our families gave us every thing but the bling-bling stroller wheels. Changing diapers isn't bad, but she can shoot like a super-soaker water gun; if i hold her backwards and point her at you, I have an unlicensed bio-weapon. When it starts to smell, I am gonna hold her up and rob a diaper store.
