You need the belly pan for air control anyway, otherwise the hot air will cycle from the engine side to the front when slow/stopped super heating the rad.

The pitted bearing is 100% gone, the other not so good either.  For peace of mind Id change out all bearings ( also check the posi frictions and plates (behind the side gears, mine had broken ears and worn splines)

boy that fpr location is familiar

[ Guests cannot view attachments ]

I cut both lines about where the arrow is and hard lined up to the fpr.  I have a carb so 4psi across firewall to dead end at carb.

If you want to get rid of the rubber line at the stock filter location, this fitting below will adapt your stock 8mm feed/return hard line to AN/JIC 3/8 hard line ( will need to flare tube 37*).  Plumb -6 (3/8) hard line up to your new AN/JIC filter, soft over to engine. same for return if you are doing it that way

This is a standard JIC hydraulic fitting (37*) Mine were about $7 complete at a Parker Store  The aero # can be cross referenced to the parker # or just take the list

summit does not have a complete fitting but these are the pieces to make one (one each of the following)
from summit racing

Fitting, Union Reducer, Male -6 AN to Male -5 AN, Steel

Aeroquip FBM3571 - Aeroquip AN Tube Nuts

The adapter will bolt to it    BUT     input shaft length, clutch disk position, release bearing, pressure plate, flywheel.  All need to work together for the system to work.

I've only had that much metal (hardfacing) in a dif  is   1- when the spiders wore out,  2- worn out inner pinion bearing

There are 3-4 case shapes and 28 or 31 spline cv joints so it is not just throw one in. If you have the appropriate case, it is just a r&r.


If you do not already have it, here is a link to tremec's literature page where you can down load a pdf of t56 service manual. http://www.tremec.com/lit_oem.php

Have you looked at a 2 section hydraulic pump? run hydro off 1 section and ps off of other.  We use full hydro steering on some of our equipment and second section for other needs.

Not much down on the mount kit, the pan and oil pump will hit (Ford).  subframe first.  I couldn't get my carbed sbc to fit under a flat hood.  With frame down 3/4" may just have cleared.  I run TII style scoop.

Did you swap the input shaft retainer to one designed for a non hydraulic throw out bearing?  The 3rd gen camaros had hydraulic throwout bearings

Not true the t5 had hydraulic actuated pivot fork,  same as the early t56.   The difference in the TO bearing is the anti rotation bump that hits the pivot fork ( the triangle at 7oclock in the above picture).

Just make sure the pivot to TO bearing distance on the release fork is correct for the bell.  The t5 fork and the Muncie/T10 forks have different lengths.

That TO looks just like the one I broke and in the same way, fork came off the pivot and hydraulics didn't really care about breaking things.

The Sound changes as the tank purges. You can hear the difference in the gasses exiting  air vs co2.  I usually give it 10 minutes once I hear the change  and stabilizes. Smell and temperature are also indications that purge has occurred. Sometimes you get a fog flow that sinks from the vent as the co2 mixes with outside air.

He said he runs a vented cap but tape with small hole will also work. Tape up hole while welding.

The gasoline vapor really does not matter as long as the air is purged.  I've welded a few tanks both diesel and gas this way. Some still had liquid in them. (Could not be removed from the equipment)

The important thing is to let the co2 displace the air to the top and out of the container.
