    The biggest issue I had was the adapter sleeve that I had made to build the OD of the throwout tube to match std 4 speed diameter. The pull clutch setup used a smaller tube which was too sloppy with the 4 speed T/O bearing. The sleeve I had made wasn't hardened and it wore quickly. I'd either do a hardened sleeve or better find a push T/O bearing with the appropriate ID. Shifter position wasn't an issue because it was an automatic car and I just cut a hole. The stick came up thru the factory console.

    Makes sense. I farmed that work out when I did mine, and never had a problem. Guess they chose the right material.

    I was thinking about this at one time and I'm not sure if you don't have to cut the tunnel. OP wanted a not-cut option I believe.
