Thanks i will have to buy some washers and then get one plasma cut out later of a keep left sign , i am just building my cross member for the center bearing mounting now. Man there is some serious work in it... But the results will be worth it knowing it has to twist the chassis instead of the floor.
How much did the 1 piece tailshaft cost to get done? and where did you have it done?

Does anyone have a parts manual picture of the l-series linkages? (trying to get Subaru part no.s) I put some new bushes into my old L-series but no longer have the part numbers of what i bought. I am hoping to do a 5-speed into brumby conversion just thought while i was putting it together i'd give the linkages a birthday...

I am doing the 5 speed to brumby conversion and got a cable made that is brumby at the pedal but L series length, all brand new inner,outer,grommets, fittings on the ends for $160. flexible drive agencies said they could have used a second hand l cable and just swapped the end, but I decided that brand new and teflon lined would be better.

Well worth a bit of a bump this thread

Observations over the years are to watch out for throw out bearing where it hits the fingers due to some differences of clutches in use between EA81 and EA82.

The diameter of the hole where all fingers point to each other differs, and depending on which clutch combo you go for could have the throwout bearing pushing a little further out from most central leverage point on the fingers.

Also not mentioned here , dont think, is if using the smaller EA81 clutch diameter ~ 8" ~(200mm) due to flywheel choice... I used the friction plate for Holden Gemini 1.6l petrol RWD - only one to choose from. It has a 0.1mm difference in the input spline measures and allows you to continue using the smaller pressure plate. Think I also used L series throw out bearing ? and clutch fork.

Pedals - I used MY pedal, Rick has used L series pedal - don't try install an L pedal box as suggested sometimes, unless you want unneccessary work. There is a difference in the length of the lever action - L for Longer = softer pedal ? Looks like the L pedal trick works.

No lever work involved for me as I used a matching grey (rare) L series console

Apparently one of the Nissan or Isuzu throw-out bearings fits the bill, when using an EA 82 Clutch Plate with an EA 81 Flywheel, probably something along the lines of early Navara or maybe even Nissan 720 Ute and likely Early Rodeo in Australia or Frontera as I believe that is what they call a Trooper in America which is rumored to fit.This gives you a throwout bearing that fits the larger L series Inout shaft and lines up nicely with the fingers of a 225mm EA81 Pressure plate obviating the need to machine the EA 81 flywheel or adapt an EA 82 Flywheel to anable the use of a full EA82 Clutch assy.

And speaking of America when doing the MY or MV (Brumby/Brat) L series Five Speed conversion, many new guys end up on both forums USMB and AuSubaru chasing information and I have yet to see anyone actually point out this important aspect.

When it comes to clutch cables you will often read in the USA they use the original MY or Brat Clutch cable, These are not an option in New Zealand , Australia or anywhere else that is Right Hand Drive unless you want to convert to Left hand driver as party of the Gearbox swap.
