When most people do the EA81 4 speed to EA82 5 speed conversion, they use the 5 speed shifters as well. I don't want to do that.
I've gone to the trouble of finding a nice clean unmolested interior, I pulled it out of a sedan I wrecked, it had the full 6 gauge cluster and centre console and since I'm trying to get the restoration on my little Brumby looking as stock as possible, I really don't want to go back to the original centre console or cut up my new centre console. What I would like to do is keep the original shifters and have them mounted in the original place. The sedan I wrecked had a 5 speed FWD box in it, so I have a factory 5 speed gear shifter knob to keep it in theme.
Has anyone done the conversion keeping their old 4 speed shifters and what did you need to modify to do so?
