    Tremec TKO500 5 speed trans, modified by American Powertrain - they claim no tunnel hump mods needed to install.

    Per American Powertrain - ProFit TKO Kit for 1966-70 Mopar B-body

    Initially went this route ( but really wanted a 6 speed ) and was not too sure of my welding skills to modify the tunnel hump for the 6 speed. American Powertrain said that they could machine the transmission and eliminate the need to modify the tunnel hump.

    The good - you won't have to wait 18 Months to get the work done, it's all done already and I've got the finished product ready to sell. ( yes - I've got a 6 speed instead ) so I no longer need this transmission and I'm making it available to the other FBBO members that would be interested.

    Here's how the transmission look initially:

    After the modification - plenty of room in the back for clearance now . . .

    The full transmission - still in the BOX - there is 0 miles on this transmission . . . it's never been in a car and driven . . .

    sm_partssale02.jpg
    rear transmission support also included with this deal . . .

    sm_partssale03.jpg

    Isolation bushing for rear of transmission - band new - also included . . .

    sm_partssale04.jpg
    Directions and bolt kits included . . .

    sm_partssale05.jpg
    Think this was the speedometer cable . . . will have to go look again . . .

    sm_partssale06.jpg
    And they provided this 5 speed tunnel hump patch panel . . . never got that for too see if this was also needed . . . so it might be a "minor" mod is needed . . .

    sm_partssale07.jpg

    Still got more to uncover . . .

    Includes . . . Bell housing
    Clutch ( new )
    Clutch plates ( new )
    flywheel ( new )

    Will add pictures when I track them down in the parts mountain . . .

    And a clutch pedal linkage package - I'll get the additional information . . . as I find it . . .

    Question . . . shoot me a PM . . . will be happy to hear what you have to offer and I no longer need this setup for my car . . . let someone else put it to good use . . .


    Note: No warranty implied or attached - No tunnel hump mods is the work and word of American Powertrain - I'm just selling this kit that I was going to use and decided to go for the 6 speed like I wanted . . . please understand my concerns with making this known ahead of time.

        Sorry - and thanks for the reminder - needed to add this picture to the thread . . .

        Per American Powertrain - ProFit TKO Kit for 1966-70 Mopar B-body

        Hydraulic clutch with all the following parts . . .

        sm_partssale12.jpg

        Bell housing . . . This one would bolt up to 5.7 ( probably a 6.1 ) Hemi.
        Do not think it would work to 440 . . .

        Yes - their work was done over a year ago - I can't speak to their warranties ( you'll have to contact them )

        I'm building a 1967 B-body - Per American Powertrain - ProFit TKO Kit for 1966-70 Mopar B-body

        The modification is a universal mod - it'll fit anything ( their documented claim ) 1966 - 1970
        The fact that I'm building a 1967 B-body should not change the fact that it'll fit 1966 - 1970
        ( if your car is in that range - then it's the same modification )

        If you have any questions/concerns on modification - I highly recommend that you contact American Powertrain directly with your questions - get the answers from the horses mouth ( your best possibility to get answers about their work ).

        Thanks for your questions and interest.
