  3. Exedy clutch?

    Transmission, Suspension, Brakes, Tires & Wheels
    Hey guys, hope somebody on here has some experience with the Exedy clutch Part #05002. There is no direct link for that part, it is found on RockAuto under 1989 Dodge Daytona 2.5l turbo. It is "Disc in 9-1/8; SplInes Dia 13/16; Splines 18", so all of those specs look consistent with what I've...

    I am looking to convert my 1986 GLHS from its manual a555 to a semi-automatic or automatic transmission. I am in a wheelchair and use hand-controls to drive and am therefore not allowed to drive any car with a manual clutch. Any advice on what might be the best fit and most reliable for a...
  8. A578/T850 Transaxle in G-Body(Daytona Laser)?

    Transmission, Suspension, Brakes, Tires & Wheels
    I searched around a bit and can't find a topic to match this, although there is a reverse topic about putting an A555/A568 into a Neon SRT. With the A555 and A568 getting rare, is there a modern transmission that would make a suitable replacement for a 225HP-ish modified G-Body Daytona or Laser...

  13. running shifter cables for 5 speed conversion

    Transmission, Suspension, Brakes, Tires & Wheels
    I'm putting 555 in my H body. I found some info about running the clutch cable, but not for running the shifter cables. I pulled up the carpet inside the car and noticed two small dimples in the floor pan just in front of where the shifter assembly is mounted. Is this the right spot to drill for...
  14. A555 with limited slip questions

    Transmission, Suspension, Brakes, Tires & Wheels
    Hey guys, I am wanting to use an obx lsd with my a555. I know they are a perfect fit for a 520 or 523 but not for a 555. Now my main question is--I believe I need the gear ring and intermediate shaft from a 523 because I have an '89. You need a 520 gear ring and shaft for '87 and '88. Is this...
