My 5-speed dual range is out of an '87 GL.
I have the Brat '84 large flywheel and pressure plate, with correct clutch disc for the 5-speed input splines.
(I don't have a proper alignment tool, but I was going to wrap a 4-speed alignment tool in electrical tape.. and try to guess as close as possible)
I have all parts modified by Jerry in WA for trans mounts and shifter/linkage conversion.
I have new axles, I have a newly rebuilt 1-piece driveshaft that was lengthened with 51" of new tubing (10.5" longer than stock I believe).
I had just stumbled upon this page:
I know that Leone started out a different 2WD sedan, but it was still an '83 ea81 car..
so, I guess I space out the starter motor 4mm to work?:
then there was this:
"started on the clutch cable. This needed swapping because the EA82 gearbox has its clutch lever on the left side of the gearbox, not the right like the EA81's have it."
"Comparison of the EA81 (below) clutch to the EA82 (on top) clutch. And what the EA82 clutch looks like on the EA81 pedal box."
"The pedal box chopped and drilled. Then the clutch cable bolted on, with a new set of holes this time in the right place.
With the pedal box bolted back into the car and cable connected to the gearbox the pedal sits level with the brake."
Is all of this required? I was not aware of any conversion differences between the 4-speed and 5-speed clutch pedal/cable.
Should I expect any clearance issues with trans tunnel on my '83 car and the 5spd DR, or does it maybe have the biggest tunnel possible with the '83 being an auto car originally?
I daily drive my car, i didn't want to push it and start a swap today with my buddy, in the cold, just to run into a hang-up and have no car to drive.
