Re: I did IT!!! AUTO->MANUAL swap!!!
the linkage was set up using the exact linkage from a donor 3/4 ton 76 chevy. i would have done the hyrdaulic set up, but that meant order parts, and spend more money, and not have it done in the 6 day time frame that i have. But, the mechanical linkage kicks ass for trouble shooting. Meanin there is no master/slave cylinders to mess up and whatever. You could probably use mechanical linkage with your 12" body lift, (snicker, sorry, 12" body lift = funny; but i have no lift, so your better off than i am... lol) you would need to get a big ass rod to basically fabricate the linkage from the pedal to the ball joint on the frame. i would say 3/8 steel rod would do just fine. When i get home, i will take some pictures of the set up on the blazer, and i happen to have a extra rod, so i will take measurements and whathave you... but that will be later possibly the begining of next week....
