    the tranny right now is out of the car but the shift arm is pointing at an upwards angle.

    Do you still believe in all the things that you stood by before? Are you out there on the front lines, or at home keeping score?
    Do you care to be the layer of the bricks that seal your fate? Would you rather be the architect of what we might create?

    Dont know the answer but I think this would be easier if we used clockwise and counterclockwise terms instead of forward or backward due to different shifter arms.

    Good idea.

    Park is farthest clockwise when viewed from the driver's side of the trans.

    awesome, hehe. also i was wondering if there is an alternate solution to the bellhousing bolts on my th350. i am using repro stock bolts and the factory assembly manual says to wrench it at 25-30 lbs. ft. and i noticed the bolts taper in in the middle. it just seems very weak to me (i actually already over torqued one and broke it but luckily i could still unscrew the whole bolt out)...

    i saw some ARP bolt kits, and wondered how much more force i can use on them. Or what is recommended, what heavy duty cars have, or just some words of reassurance that these stock bolts will hold up and i am just paranoid.
