Not for all the rice in China.

Found the source of the vibration, but the trans noise is definitely still there.

I can't figure out how to copy the link from Facebook, but there's a video of the trans noise on my Vintage page. The link is below in my signature line.

My transmission guy Jody Haag from the Chevelle site assures me the noise is being caused by the solid hub twin disc clutch set-up causing the gears to rattle. I've never heard a box make this much noise, but by the same token I've never ran a non-sprung hub clutch on the street either. If he says it's normal and good to go, then I'll take his word for it.

Let the beatings commence.

I sure hope I'm not jinxing myself here.....but I think I've got the entire 5 speed set-up in the Chevelle sold lock, stock & barrel.

If this pans out the car will be temporarily converted over to a 400 Turbo for track testing purposes.

Once that's done, the 496 is coming out of the car and a mild engine will be going back in along with a Muncie 4 speed and appropriate peripherals.

Hard lesson learned here: making a heavy stick car haul ass is WAY above my pay grade.

Maybe once the car has a slushbox in it the "fire" will re-kindle between me & the car.

We'll see. I hope.

I always ask the same question -- do you want a race car or a cruiser. The answer is simple ... a good race car is not a cruiser and a cruiser is not a race car ... nuf said? TAZ

Still looking for a suitable (read: cheap, preferably ugly and something I don't give a rats ass about) mule to use as a test bed for my engine projects. Leaning heavily towards another G body, or perhaps a 3rd gen F body if I can find one someone's already done most of the work on for the right deal.

The Chevelle will soon be relegated to nice cruiser status, no more stupid power in it like this. In my defense, I never in my wildest dreams thought this relatively mild 496 would run like it does.

First test drive with the 400 Turbo is in the bag--just a quick jaunt around the neighborhood.

This dinky converter is definitely gonn'a take a little getting used to lol...but I can live with it.

Of course I had to give it a little whack...

<-----------this should give you a hint.

The car actually smoked the tires through 1st and 2nd from a roll this time lol. The throttle response is absolutely ridiculous now that it doesn't have that heavy-ass flywheel & clutch hanging off the back of the crank. Maybe I'll post a short video clip tomorrow.

Next on the "to do" list is get that 4.56 screw outt'a the back and get the 4.10's in, but that'll have to wait until spring.
