    V8 Version SM318 3 Speed

    Here’s a ton of photos of my car. Slowly but surely coming along. Kids, long work hours, and money is keeping me from finishing it as quickly as I want. http://www.348-409.com/forum/threads/1961-impala-2-door-sedan-lets-get-started.30572/ As far as my Elvis days, I only found one pic handy...

    V8 Version SM318 3 Speed

    I know I’ll get the transmission issue worked out. I’m just very particular and detail oriented. This has always been a double edged sword though. As far as the TCB-1 moniker... I’ve had that handle on a few other truck and car related message boards over the years. It’s also short for...

    V8 Version SM318 3 Speed

    I’ve always said, the enthusiasts here are by far the most knowledgeable and respectful group of guys I know. You have to watch out for Phil Reed though!

    V8 Version SM318 3 Speed

    Scott, I’m looking for casing 3743368 and tail casing 3741458. These are ‘58-62. I think the one you have is a 65 and up. It may work though. Where are you?

    V8 Version SM318 3 Speed

    This is true. I’ve bought 3 of those darn clutch gears, and all were supposedly for this transmission, but all were different. It’s like when GM built these, they scooped a shovel full of parts up and machined to fit. The gentleman rebuilding my transmission builds race three speeds and knows...

    V8 Version SM318 3 Speed

    I know, why would anyone want to keep the old manual 3 speed, column shift on a ‘61 Impala... I suppose that would be me. Anyone have one of these transmissions sitting around collecting dust? Looking for the V8 version of these units that has the larger clutch gear, NOT the turned down...

    1961 3 Speed Part# Help Please

    Perfect!! I did not know such a website with part numbers was available. It’s even better since you can search a particular part number or part description. This will help me in the future tremendously! Thanks Skydog!

    1961 3 Speed Part# Help Please

    Does anyone have access to a ‘61 parts book that covers the standard 3 speed w/o overdrive? Trying to determine a few parts that were different between the 6 cylinder and 283 variations. The clutch gear was different on the 283 variation. It was beefier and had a 21 tooth input as opposed to a...

    Sending Unit. 5/16” or 3/8”, ‘‘tis the question...”

    Paul, I am going to use nicopp 3/8 tubing since I don’t have the body off the frame. Been really happy with the flares I’m getting and how easy it is to finesse into the tighter bends as far as brake lines go. I’m afraid that trying to snake prebent fuel and brake tubing from the through the...

    Sending Unit. 5/16” or 3/8”, ‘‘tis the question...”

    Gang, Getting ready to purchase a sending unit for my ‘61. It has a 283, stock build, with an Edelbrock AVS2 500cfm carb. I know the 5/16” sending unit and fuel line was stock for 235 and 283 engines, but is there any advantage for me to bump up to a 3/8” unit and lines? (I’m also replacing the...
