I was wondering, is there any way possible to add a 5th gear, to a '77 tranny? If so, who can do it?

What you would have to do is change engine bell housings and then put the ea82 5 speed in.

I'm almost positive that the EA81 5 speed came only in 2wd.


You could make up the linkage to run the EA82 4wd tranny in your car using a close-to-stock looking lever. It would take some fab work, but I'm sure it's possible.

Never heard of anyone pulling this off yet.

Personal dream for me would be an EA71 with a D/R 5spd....and SPFI.

Be sure to let us know if you stuff a D/R 5spd into that '77.You'll be my hero.:)

Hey Guys This is Jerry, i am in the proscess of doing that same project. It is a 80 brat with a 6 inch lift and a hot EA81 with the 5 speed dual range tranny useing the stock shifters. Also i have install the EA81 rear suspension and rear disc brakes. From doing this project if you are going to stuff the 5 speed dual range tranny in a EA71 car or brat you will need at least a 4 inch lift the tunnel is to small and the tranny is to big to fit without alot of mods to the tunnel. It will be done in about 2 weeks and i will let you know how it turns out. Thanks Jerry
