I've got a line on a 5spd dual range transmission from a GL to swap into my my 5 speed loyale. The new tranny doesn't have a gear shifter bu does have the dual range shifter. Could I use the push button shifter on the dual range tranny? Obviously the push button doesn't work.

Sorry, I'm not sure I understand. The new tranny has the hi lo shifter but no 5 speed gear shifter. Will my current gear shifter that has the push button on it work with the new tranny and the hi lo shifter? Sorry I don't know the proper terms. I'm jut concerned about the stick shift not the dual range levers.

If I understand what you are saying, yes I believe the "business ends" of both sticks are the same. It might not be pretty but it should at least function.

Exactly what I mean. Thanks. How do you mean not pretty? I assume you could slip the pb stick into the console of the dual range and it would look fine. Or do you mean more than aesthetically pretty?

I just meant that you might have to get creative with the shifter boot or the surrounding plastic. Even so you should be able to make it look sweet. Lots of us have extra parts too. Give a holler if you need the correct shifter and I'm sure someone will even have the proper color. This place is AWESOME like that.
