Re: Adapt tr6060 to 292ci I6 with 6 speed on the tree

You will like that better. Does the shifter clear the bench seat or will you go to buckets?

The shifter will clear the bench. I hope to put the bench seat back in the truck tomorrow night so i can bend up a shifter. the shift throw seams very reasonable as well, a lot shorter than i was expecting.

Re: Adapt tr6060 to 292ci I6 with 6 speed on the tree

Got my trans cooler and line fittings this weekend. also measured for the slave cylinder spacer. .500" slave spacer for the 96 chevy 1500 slave. once I have that I can install trans for hopefully the final time. Just need to throw some paint on the crossmember yet. Hope to throw in the trans witin the next week. I have my driveshaft scheduled for modification the first part of January. So while I'm waiting on the I should be able to fabricate linkage for the clutch master cylinder. Then final assembly on the snifter.

So this trans has a pressurized lubricant system?

It had a pump driven off the countershaft. Other than the cooler it's still splash lube.

Re: Adapt tr6060 to 292ci I6 with 6 speed on the tree

I'm guessing it uses ATF rather than 90 weight?
Also does this unit have overdrive?

Re: Adapt tr6060 to 292ci I6 with 6 speed on the tree

Very cool project you are undertaking! Seems like you 'bout got her figured out. Nice work! Cant wait to hear how she does on the open road. I rebuilt a 250" 6er back in the 90's with 3OTT and always wished for more gears. In hindsight i shoulda gone the T5 route.

Thumbs up, very cool project. I love seeing other options than T-5 and Tremecs.

Thanks guys. Not a lot getting done during the holidays but hope to start again next week. I ship my driveshaft out for modifications after New Years. Then all I have left is the clutch master.

Re: Adapt tr6060 to 292ci I6 with 6 speed on the tree

So the bellhousing is integral to the transmission body? An earlier bell housing is incompatible and therefore no manual Clutch Pedal to Z-bar to Pushrod to Clutch Fork to Throw Out Bearing set up, I gather.

I used to know a guy with a later Jeep and he was always kvetching about bleeding the clutch master cylinder.

If you need something for the clutch master, I do make these.

Working great. I need to change out the pump cam but other than that it's perfect!

I have a speedo problem on my '71 Jimmy 4x4: big tires [33x12.50xR15LT], so the gauge reads ''slow''. I need for a speedo shop guy to put the right gears into a corrector box, but until I do, I run a GPS, and that gives me very accurate groundspeed information.

Re: Adapt tr6060 to 292ci I6 with 6 speed on the tree

I got a conversion box for an electronic speed signal to a cable drive speedo. installed and it works great. I've put about 200 miles on the setup. 6th gear at 60mph is a little doggy. you have to downshift to 5th to climb hills. 6th gear at 65mph plus is great. 70 mph in sixth is about 1700 rpm. I plan to drive it this summer the way it is. I may go from my 3.73 rear end to a 4.11 this winter.

Re: Adapt tr6060 to 292ci I6 with 6 speed on the tree

6th gear and having to downshift to 5th would seem normal to me. Going to 4.11's will help as you'll put 6th closer to peak torque. Any idea on how good the gas mileage is?

Re: Adapt tr6060 to 292ci I6 with 6 speed on the tree

I have not checked mileage yet. Tomorrow as long as weather permits I plan on taking it on a 3 hour trip. Ill try and get mileage if I do go. Then ill report back. I had gotten as high as 14 mpg with the old 3 speed. I'm curious to see what it ends up getting as well

Re: Adapt tr6060 to 292ci I6 with 6 speed on the tree

Depending on your tire size...the ratio difference between 3.73 and 4.10 is about the same as the ratio difference between a new set of tires and a worn out set..if you drop to low on the rear gear then you may have issues with the first couple of gears in your trans being to low to be useful..
