OK, so I've seen a few threads about adapting a T18 transmission to an AMC 304 engine but from all the treads that I read through, it looked like everyone was saying that it was a direct bolt on. I have a ford T18 and when I bolted it all up to measure for the new cross member location I found a big problem.... As you can hopefully see from this photo, the input shaft of the trans does not even touch the pilot bushing. ( Don't mind the grease on the end of the shaft... wanted to test how far the input shaft was going into the bushing not knowing that I was going to be able to see it. ) Anyways... I'm not quite sure why mine isn't a straight bolt up like most people say. I was hoping someone on here might know what I'm missing or what I can do to make it work. Thanks in advance!
