Going to be using this as a guide for when I get a wagon and ls swap! Good luck with it, seems well thought out.

rear suspension done for now... just need to get a sway bar and adjustable uppers. Haven't done that yet just because the uppers are brand new on the car. Maybe i can get the motor and trans in this week!

Finally a little progress... clutch is here. Fuel fittings are on and just need to run lines up to the filter. Holidays are slowing progress up... after Christmas that will change.

maybe a **** hair between it, you can see where it was touching before on the old shaft...but its still really close with the new one. i figured it would have way more clearance. i do need to move my motor back a little bit. if i remember right there there will be a little bit more clearance if i do.

If you haven't done it yet -- loosen up the fasteners holding the column and you can shift the column a bit towards the driver's side - that should free you up a bit of clearance as well.

Mine moved a lot more than I was led to believe based on others' experience. No squeaky.

As I recall - 2 fasteners where column passes through and smack it with my hand; took all of 45 seconds and shifted the column maybe 1/4” away from the manifold.

edit - clarify - 1/4" gained where the column comes through the firewall; less than that out at the manifold, but most of us will take what we can get.

tx240 - LOL; maybe someone had already moved yours in that direction before you tried. Can only tell you what happened on mine. Apparently one size does not fit all. I used different manifolds than shown here so my clearance issues were entirely different/different solution. I also offset the motor 1/2" towards the passenger side.

Ours is apples/oranges anyway because of manifold choice alone; engine height likely also different, that affects clearance as well.
