    TKO-500 Install Progress and Q and A

    I am doing a how to thread on installing a TKO-500 that I recently got from Craigslist.

    The great thing is this trans has the offset shifter so I should line up where my old SuperT10 was.

    Here is the transmission, driveshaft and speedo cable I scored:

    Here is the shifter location:

    Maybe I can flip the plate and move it to the furthest point back?

    Yours is set up for a different car. Here's mine as it came from Hurst, you can see the difference.

    I would cut the tranny for clearance and make an S or L bracket to adapt it to the proper position. Looks straight forward.

    That's not a bad idea. Where can I get the S or maybe a U bracket

    That configuration must be for a different car. I don't think you can flip it. But maybe SST (formally Keisler) can help with a remedy.

    You could bend up one out of round stock or cut it out of flat stock. You could mock it up using a hanger.
