I'd be interested in seeing that. Wouldn't mind putting a 5spd into Wackybug at some point.

With your Signature pic , i would have thought you would have already have done or the least have been involved in a L 5 speed into a M.Y before.

Here goes. I will do my best to explain what i have done . This is a work in progress so i will post as i get each part done . If anyone knows a better way or if i dont have any part right , please , please correct me .

A standard M.Y peddle box.



I drilled out the spot welds that hold the clutch mount on and removed the mount. Then i cut the clutch mount out of the L pedal box. I did it this way so it was easier for me instead of measuring both holes and it already has the nuts welded on it.



Then i measured back from the pedal rod and got where the lower hole was meant to be and drilled a hole big enough that the nut on the L plate would go through. Then got a comfortable angle for the cable to sit and drilled the second hole. With the plate siting nice and flat, it was welded on.
I don't know if any one else has done it , but the pedal bump stop on the L is different to the M.Y. The spot welds were drilled out to remove the M.Y bump and the L was done the same and mounted onto the L pedal.

As brett posted earlier in this thread the M.Y flywheel is thicker than the L one. So it needs to be machined. It is now in the machine shop getting the ring gear removed and machined and the ring gear replaced.

Cleaned up the gearbox, ready to replace the front and back seal. The last thing i wont to happen is put the box in and find out in a month that the front seal needs replacing.
