Drive line and Crossmember Q's
Posted 15 August 2004 - 03:38 AM
I searched the forums for about 20 mins and couldn't find out what crossmember and driveline to use for my 1983 3AT to 4spd D/R conversion. My car already has the 3.9 Rear Diff also.
P.S. I will be making a very detailed "How to..." manual on the conversion. If my camera man doesn't flake out.

Talking to Turbone, I do recall that the leading rod plates as well as the cross-member are different, so you'll have to find both. I have that stuff too.
I think I can hook you up if you can toss a few $$ my way - just for my time. If you come up here we can pull the parts.
I have a complete good clutch and flywheel in my garage - just checked. I would reccomend a new disc tho. This one is worn down a bit. Would get you moving tho.

Physical changes - need to cut shifter hole in floor larger, need the 4WD linkage bracket welded/bolted/etc into place, need to bypass the starter lock-out (this is what makes it so you dont accidently try and start your car when your in gear)
PARTS: (from 4spd dual-range car)
4spd Dual-range + linkage
Tranny X-member, mounts, and the tranny-to-mount brackets
4WD linkage bracket (spot welded to tranny tunnel on the interior of the cab)
the rubber boot for the stick/4WD linkage
metal bracket that holds down said boot
4WD center console
*I have both, but will try using the automatic driveline to see if it'll work
OPTIONAL: Hill-holder equipment from an 82+ GL 4WD
I miss anything?
