Get the May 2003 Hot Rod. On page 46 they talk about all kinds of
conversions. McLeod is making conversions to go from just about
anything to anything.
The hard part is the flywheel, as far as I know MTS is just about
the only place that sells them and they cost about $350. MTS phone
number is 1-262-740-1118.
You also need to drill the crank for the input shaft since Cadillac
never had a manual. Go to CaddyCarlo's web site, he sells an
adapter to do this and also has lots of pictures.
Also go tell the MTS message board about your project, they are also
a bunch of nice guys and would like to hear about it.
Sounds like a great project and almost unbelievable, I would love to
see the pictures.
