My understanding of shift position for non Astro applications places it to the passenger side somewhat behind the passenger side seat.Could you please clear up the confusion??.Thanks.
Jim I think with his current 5 speed set up he has the peddles all set already and using the slave cylinder for his clutch from that as well.astroturf said:How tough is the clutch pedal assy going to be? Thanks, Jimdoyoulikeithere said:that confusion is hard to clear up because it has a high element of variables and misunderstanding.
There are many many non astro configurations of the T5.
None of them would come up "under" the pax seat. the trans isnt quite that far offset to the pax side.
Without the offsetting shifter device, the shifter would be about 14" closer to the pax side, but not under the seat.
Camaro and mustang T5 shifters will be way too far back on the tailhousing. S10 shifters are about an inch or 2 more forward than astro.
Its all visible in the pDF i attached above. I dont mind cutting a new floor hole for my shifter, and the transfer case lever will come thru the original shifter hole.
I will custom bend a shifter lever to make it comfortable to use.
BTW a Camaro WC T5 has all the right dimensions (main shaft length) that a simple swap with an astro tailshaft housing will produce a WC T5 configured to fit the stock astro 5 speed position.
Keep that in mind for 5 speed astro V8 projects. That will be my next project when this 4x4 is done, my Safari GT will be a great candiate.
PS I now have an "Extra" (and rare) Astro T5 Tail Shaft Housing and offsetting shifter device, just sitting in a box collecting dust.
