It's the same as swapping in a new 4spd. Same bolts, same mounts. The '75+ 1400 hardtops were the only Subies stateside to get the 5sp and the 1400 combination.

if you have the ea71 and box donor car use everything from it like cross members and linkages and you wont have any problems, but the 5 speed from a ea71 wont bolt straight up to a ea63, different bell housing
