do I know where to get an engine too trans adapter?
I just might, but WHICH transmission exactly are we talking about?
i know of lots of adapter bell housing manufacturers, theres even blank bell housings available for custom machineing

the TKO-600 manual transmission makes a nice upgrade in most older pre 1997 corvettes

ALWAYS ask the tech support guys ALL the questions you can think of about clearances, compatability, suitability, ask for suggested matched parts, info, etc. BEFORE ordering parts

don,t forget to install a pilot bearing in the rear of the crank too support the front of the transmission splined input shaft, btw you remove the old one just some info!
the pilot bearing in the rear of the crank is very easily removed with a brass or aluminum rod about 6" long thats the same dia. as the tip of the trans input shaft, you simply pack the bearing full of axle grease till its 100% full and flush with its outer edge , line up the rod and smack it with a 5 lb hammer the grease hydraulic pressure behind the bearing pops it out onto the rod, now if you don,t get it out on the first hit its usually because there was air pockets in the grease so youll need to repack it with more grease and try a second time

"IF" it needs to be replaced by packing the area behind and inside it with grease and hydraulically lifting it out by use of a wood, brass or aluminum dowel driven into its center area with a mallet, the displaced grease forces the bearing up and out
[grumpy?]how do get the grease behind the bearing? [/quote]
thru the center hole the tip of the splined trans shaft rides in

careful measurement and centering the input shaft is critical

in some cases an adapter ring is required to match a different transmission to a bell housing

btw there are adjustable universal cross member u-weld kits available, or you can fabricate something nice with some measuring and some pattern making done first, you won,t be the first guy to fabricate a cross member
