Gen 1 lwb auto trans swap from 5spd
« on: April 11, 2018, 08:13:50 AM »
Hey guys I'm looking to for some information on a trans swap from a 5-speed to an automatic. Got the transmission in Bolt it up my question is do I need to modify the shift linkage to work?

Do you have the donor truck? Or are you having to piecemeal it?

I got mostly everything from a guy here local in AZ. Got the swap done all I have left is reverse lights and overdrive to wire up and the trans temp light. 5 speed sitting in my garage if anyone wants to come pick it up.
