    Ive got a 67 chevelle m20 in my 70. what all would have to change out to use the 3/8s bolts for shifter lever arm attatchment. 67 uses the weaker studs plus all my levers are for bolts. didnt know if i have to change the entire side plate assembly with forks or just parts of it.

    I'm scratching my head on this one, are the levers actually different?

    So you had levers that had 5/16 stud. Then 3/8 stud and then 3/8 bolt. Pretty sure all the poo forks are the same. That leaves the question of do the parts mccune show. Have to match the side plate I believe

    Right... I believe. Those are what either contain the studs or bolts, but do they have to match the same side plate and forks. Although I believe all the forks are the same

    You can take out the stud levers and replace them with bolt levers. Nothing else changes.

    Seems like I had read some where the depth was different on one of the set ups though I don't recall exactly which one. Also I'd be curious what he has and what he wants for them
