49 3100 250 Swap #1309963 Tue May 07 2019 05:47 PM

I am in the process of installing a 250 six in a 1949 3100. I plan to use the bell housing and 3 speed transmission from a 64 c10. The rear end is from a 1955 3100 with 3.90 gears.
I want to use the original steering column and the clutch and brake pedals. Where I need some help is on the clutch linkage. Can I use all of the 49 clutch linkage including the throw out bearing arm? I am hoping that someone else has done this and can steer me clear of problems.
Thanks for your Help!

No, you're going to have to do some fabrication, beginning with installing the bell housing crossmember from a 1954 or 55 1st. series truck. Since there was no similar bellhousing prior to the 55 2nd. series V8, there probably won't be a bolt-in swap for the clutch linkage. "Measure twice- - - -cut once!

I modified the 49 crossmember to fit the 64 bell housing. I am trying to decide which clutch fork to use; one for the 64 bell housing or the one for the 49. Any thoughts?
Thanks Jerry!

Compare the length of both forks, both the inner and outer dimensions from the pivot ball. The inner dimension is the most critical, since the fingers that operate the throwout bearing need to align exactly with the center of the hole in the bell housing. It's fairly simple to figure out and fabricate the geometry to make the outside dimension work right.
