What color drive gear does your T5 have? I left that part out of my videos.

Remove the driven gear and housing from the tail housing. Look at the drive gear through that hole. It will be either dark red or blue.

Need some clutch fork advice:

I'm attempting to use the original AD type clutch linkage and a "621" bellhousing mated to a small block. Will an original AD type fork work with the 70s era bellhousing, or do I need to adapt a fork to match the housing? I don't currently have a clutch fork and need to order one, but there seems to be a million of em.

So I got the motor and trans assembled together. Everything fit like it was supposed to. Strange, that never happens. Planning on putting it in the truck thanksgiving weekend at a buddy's shop in Warren Mi. I bought the Chassis Engineering mounts. They're really nice quality parts. I'm anticipating it to be a big project though. Wish me luck! (yes I know there's a bolt missing, it'll be in soon. lol)

I was considering doing a proper build log on this truck since it's a pretty big project on an aggressive time schedule, but John seems to have a pretty tight requirements (understandably), and this really is just another 1/2 ton Ad, and to top things off it's actually not a stovebolt. Although the original plan was to put a 292 in it. It just didn't fit. ( I do know someone with a pretty sweet 292 available though, lol)

Also got the brakes done. Was planning on sticking with drum brakes, but to many parts were missing and this is a 47 with "Huck" style brakes and parts were becoming difficult to find. I'm glad I went with the disks now though. Thanks to the guys at Dave's Muffler in Durand. They did all the work on the brakes. (I have no affiliation with Dave's Muffler other than being a long term satisfied customer).
