Guys, I'm bringing this thread back up because I'm in the same boat. I'm doing a 4 speed conversion on my 78 Olds Cutlass Aeroback, and don't know enough about it. I need to make sure I'm on the right track.
Main concerns - Crankshaft drilled for pilot bushing.
- Block drilled for bell crank.
The original poster has an Olds 350 that typically came with an automatic. My car will have a 403, which many were installed in Trans Ams, with a manual transmission. So can you guys confirm that I do, or do not, have these provisions from the pics below?
If my block & crank are good to go, I have a " needs " list. This list may, or may not, be complete. This is where I need help also...
- Borg Warner T10 4 speed manual transmision
- Shifter & linkage
- GBody specific BOP bell housing
- GBody specific clutch fork https://www.4speedconversions.com/14007356-r1.html

Can you 4 speed guys check this list for me? I appreciate it. Looking forward to having a manual in one of my GBody's
