So this is why I want a Chevette donor...I can take speed sensors etc. and use them..I am not intimidated by that in the least,, I'm sure I can make it work ..it worked in the Chevette...Hell I could swap whole drivetrain into my Ascona and use the other engine for spare for the 74....I'm just wondering if anyone else has tried this....

Looks like it's just a TH180 with a lockup in the Chevette all you need to control that is a button locked or unlocked...no computer only the later ones were electronic..Geo Tracker etc...

I want my 30 mpg
