T5 + 289w?

Is it possible (Im guessing it is) to hook up a T5 tranny to an old windsor motor?

Are there any places in sydney which sell conversion kits and/or bellhousings etc?

Is there anything to look for when buying a t5 and how much should I expect to pay for one in decent condition?

Try the Castlemaine Rod shop. They do all manner of engine conversion kits for all manner of cars.

And besides, you will probably find that the T5 bellhousing MAY bolt straight up to the 289 - the engine bolt pattern is the same now as it was then (when 289s were new). I doubt the clutch fork throw and X member etc etc would be compatible, thats why you need to get a proper kit and have it done the right way, first time.

yep, call crs. i got a kit from them, of the shelf, for a t5 onto a small block chev powered hq. came with everything from custom bell howsing and crossmember to yokes for the driveshaft to suit and a complete hydraulic clutch setup. cost about 700 bucks, but that was a fair while ago.

dellow automtive in revesby, sydney will do the required bellhousing using xd / e v8 cable hydraulic clutch setup, but these items are hard to find.

Maybe look into the possibility of a factory eb v8 bell with the cable clutch setup - not sure if this will work.

remember that there is a difference in length of the input drive shaft in 6 & 8 T5's - the V8 one is 25 mm longer
