Hey guys...My name is Anthony and I'm new to the forum. I have a 1968 Dodge Charger RT. I'm bored with the automatic tranny and I'm looking to start a new project, which is to convert the automatic tranny to a manual. I'm a mechanic so I'll have no problem in that area, just need some suggestions about where to get the proper parts for the job. Any other suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks!

You're going to convert the auto to a manual? You mean like swap the auto for a manual or take the auto and make it into a manual?

An 833 4 gear is what you need.

I want to remove the 727 and install a 4 speed. I need all the parts to do the job...any suggestions?

This is gonna be a little bit involved. You'll have to do a bunch of fabricating in order to put a clutch pedal in there, and cut a hole in the floor for a shifter, and everything else. Not a small project anyway.

I don't have any suggestions for you, but good luck.
