Thanks for the add to the club.  I have a 1970 that I'm replacing the TH350 with a rebuilt 2004R out of a 1987 Grand National.  My plan is also to go with 3:73 rear gears and a limited slip carrier 

 

My question is are there any recommendations for the  horseshoe shifter and cable?  This car is also going thru a bench to buckets conversion (I have an open thread in the Interior forum).  I have a console I want to install, but with the overdrive, I need some advice on shifter and cable that will work with the console.

I have a 700r4 in my 72 Monte and it has the stock floor shift with a shift works conversion kit. I also went with a Bowtie Overdrive TVS cable and linkage kit. Everything works well but I do need to adjust the cable buy have not taken the time to do so

Thanks Leghome for the rely --  I see you're not too far from where I was born and raised (Kokomo) .  If you have any links to the products mentioned above, please provide.

Here is a link to the Bowtie Overdrive web site. http://bowtieoverdrives.com/ just need to look around and find your carb on one part. I have an Eldebrock 1406 on my 72. this link is also useful http://www.tvmadeez.com/

Link to shiftworks.com  http://shiftworks.com/kits.htm If I remember correctly you can contact them and give them your tire size/height and gears you are running and they can hook you up with the correct gears for the speedo cable.
