    I recently installed a 5 speed OD (T34) in my Travelette. The transmission cover (floor hump) won't fit now. I can modify it but am wondering if there is a difference between the 4 and 5 speed "hump". I have two other 1210 4X4's with 5 speeds but I don't want to start pulling out carpeting etc. to look. Does anyone know is a difference? The tranny lid protrudes to the right near the shifter and makes contact with the "hump" for a couple inches.

    Yes, the hump cover for the 5 speed transmissions are taller.
    Extract from the IPL for '74 & '75 Truck & Travelall & Travelette & Wagonmaster.
    Three different part numbers noted.

    I cut the shifter area out and welded in a collar/spacer when I did mine.

    I am contemplating a 1" body lift whenever I finally make the 4x4 swap and put in the NP205 and the 4x4 cover..

    Mine is a 74.

    The cover on your 1210 won't fit your 75 Travelette but might show a different hump.

    Part of our problem is the engine set back puts the transmission shifter in the middle of the cover, rather than at the firewall.

    Even if you have the right cover on the earlier truck, it has the hole in the wrong spot. :)

    My T-35 came from a Loadstar with a hydraulic clutch - I also have a problem with the slave cylinder not fitting.

    I originally cut the cover for that as well, but now I am onboarding the slave cylinder so I can get rid of the "blister" against my throttle foot. :)

    My Travelette is a 1972 so the engine sits more forward than on a '75. Even so, the original hump used for the 4 speed won't work with the 5 speed.

    I'm not certain that I understand your question but the "hump" I'm talking about screws to the floor over the transmission. I decided to look at my '70 pickups with the 5 speeds ( I have two 1210 short boxes with 5-speeds). One has the "hump" actually making contact with the tranny cover. The other has a rectangular hole cut in it to clear the tranny and uses a fiberglass spacer to elevate the shifter boot mount. I try to get some pics as I've never seen this before but I'm certain it's factory installed! I cut the hole in my "hump" larger (5-1/2 inches diameter) and fabricated a 1 inch collar with plate on top to screw the boot to. Should work.

    Every one that I have seen uses the fiberglass spacer with no difference in the tunnel cover. I have two like that.
