Muncie 4 Speed

Robert,

After driving a friends '70
Roadpig with a Hemorrhoid in it (Hemi RoadRunner) I
remembered the fun of driving a 4 speed. I have a chance to
trade 2 used Powerglides for a Muncie 4 speed. Is this
a good deal????

If I put a 4 speed in a Vega
that was originally an automatic, do I need to
scavenge the clutch pedal, bell crank, & all related stuff
from another Vega or Monza???? What is the trick
setup???? Hydraulic or manual????

With a 383, 9", &
4 Speed, I think the fun would be in driving it
rather than racing it.

Thanx for any
input.

Mike, Inventer of Dirt

Yes Mike, you will need to scavenge all the stick
shift parts from a Vega. I have never tried to use
Monza pedals in a Vega, so I don't know if it will
work.

All Vegas had a hole in the firewall for
a clutch cable. The swap is easy once you have all
the parts. I am all out of spare parts for this swap,
but I think TimW4080 on the GM H Body Club has some
stuff.

Best of luck...Robert
