Well shit. Here we are 3 years later.
Had to pull the motor to clearance some stuff. Turns out the trans was stuck it 4th. Apparently it's a common issue. I decided to pull the trans apart myself and do the rebuild. Trans looked to be in great shape except for the stamped shift keys which I replaced with billet shift keys. Quite the job, but not terrible. Gave me a solid piece of mind. Now I'm waiting on a clutch fork and it'll go back in. Looking to finish it up soon.

Here's the fresh trans

My stepdad had a Z with a SBC, cage and a mini-tubbed that was a gorgeous black on black back in the mid 80s. I have only seen pictures of it. I would love to build him that same car today with a little junkyard LS.

We need to get you one of these contracting jobs and you can finish this guy up real quick. Get those certs and we can talk some more.

10 years ago there was a guy at Cedar Creek with a white one. Crazy Bob. It went mid/high 5s down there.

After getting my rebuilt tranny back on the motor, I attempted a second install. Significant clearance issues with the t56.

My Hydraulic slave mount contacted the firewall. I massaged the wall a little, but a bracket for the gas pedal brought that to a stop. I ended up cutting it off and just going with a RAM hydraulic throwout bearing ($200). Looking back I should have done this from the start, but I'd much rather be able to work on parts that are outside of the bellhousing as opposed to having to pull the trans. Also had to order a smaller harmonic dampener.

Lastly, the bulky reverse lockout solenoid was massively in the way. I ended up cutting off the solenoid and modifying it. It still has a spring that I have to overcome to get into gear, but it's far smaller.

Should be going in for the final time this week.

You don't need to fly up here. You need to drive that Z up here and blast through some mountain roads.

I'm selling this as a roller.

I have no idea what to value it at. The passenger floor pan needs replacing, but other than that It's a pretty clean car. it does have a clear title. Any idea where to start? The prices for these are ALL OVER

Hell man, I know. It's a bummer, but I'd rather just focus on the black car and get the white truck on the road. It's just missing a motor, and I just happened to free one up

C20 actually.
It was super fucking clean about 10 Years ago. I went to Iraq and parked it. It now needs rockers, a motor, and some rear brake work. Nothing big
