The saginaw 3 speed colum shift behind my screamin inline 250 is getting replaced by a sm465, i have all the goodies, correct bellhousing, flywheel, starter ( if the tooth count is different, havn't checked yet). Question is will the throwout fork work from the 3 speed, are the throwout bearings the different? Also will I have to carve out the whole center of the floor, or just enough room for the shift tower? She's a 78 c10 (2wd) Dont give me any "its not a 4x4" crap, my other rigs is a jeep, just answer the tranny swap question.

How tall is the floor at the moment? Usually the manuals have a removable center section that is about 4'' tall. If you have this then all that is necessary is a hole enough for the top of the tower about 5'' circle I think.

Throw out fork and bearing should be the same---along with the clutch assy. Shouldn't have to change the flywheel. All that should change is the bellhousing, trans, and driveshaft

If I'm not mistaken the top of the 465 will stick through the floor a little bit. the boot that they came with is huge. the factory hale is oblong ~4.5x6
