GI- T56 swapperoo

I am doing a T56 retrofit into my first gen, and although the T56 I have is in good shape, it's an LT1 T56, which means I can't retain my stock mechanical clutch linkage behind a big block.

Does anybody out there have an LS1 T56? I'd pay cash or do a swap. My Lt1 unit is in good shape, has low milage on it (car was wrecked, then trans sat) What pains me is that I sold one a few months ago thinking I was all set.

Are you doing the McLoead adapter & such? I'd like to see how you do this.

you do know that an LS1 trans will NOT bolt directly up to your big block right?

Yeah, Mike was the one that told me about the whole deal. I confirmed it with McLeod, which leads us to this post. Looks like Ron has what I need... just have to work out picking it up, etc.

If you need help going to get it, let me know. My truck likes dirty parts in the back.
