The flywheel is finished and i have cleaned up the shift linkages ready for the bushes. Also since my car has a 2" lift , i made up a couple of lift blocks for the L tail shaft .

I need some conformation on the following . We are about to the mods on the L linkages to fit the M.Y. . IS this right :- Shorten the mount and arm that the gear stick sits in.
:- The linkage arm to be shortened and have a light angle mod.
:- Range leaver to be lengthened

Can some one please let me know if this is right . I dont wish to waste a shift set.

Thanks to anyone who helps.

I just suck a 5sp D/R into an MY sedan and apart from massive trans tunnel mods the shifters went in prefect with no mods.
I used the original 2wd shifter rubber mount, turned it 90degrees and bolted the 5sp's rubber mount to it. Cut the hole out about 30mm to the rear and had to cut some out the front to clear the gear shifter. I have pics, I'll piut them up after dinner maybe.

ahh,

joined this thread a bit late but..........
most things to do with a MY to L series gearbox swap are in this website (see the address in the signature).

should answer all questions.

makes a massive difference after the old ea81 gearbox.

good luck

Hey A.R.

This is a test run. 1/ to see if we can do it.
2/ The low range and 5th gear
3/ to get to know the box so later we can remove the low range to put in a awd box , if i can ever find one.
