5spd D/R conversion Qs...
Posted 08 December 2003 - 03:07 PM
my 4spd D/R clutch is starting to slip and I am contemplating putting in my 5spd D/R set up now.
I have been reading the archives and I am curious about Jerry's Kit. He still making them?? What exactly is it?
I am doing this to an 82 GLW w/ a 4spd DR, I have the 5spd D/R w/ ctr dif, 3.7 LSD, drive shaft, trailing arms from an RX
will ea81 CV shafts work (spline issues?)
any advice appreciated about tunnel clearance, cables, pedals.

If you are going to rally it, then it might be alright.....
You might run into spline issues - the turbo cars had 25 spline on the EA82's, so I think the RX trans does as well. The EA81 axles will not fit if that is the case.
Just some info for you....

not a 4wheeler/crawler, more of a rally set up.
can anyone recomend a source for clutch kits and flywheels.
I think I'm looking for a 88 XT setup.

i'm not sure if jerry is still making those kits.
more than likely there will be spline issues. cause even on the ea82 turbos. you have to swap front shafts to put the d/r in.

Jared - he's talking about an RX D/R, not a loyale one, the RX has a higher lo gear - 1.2:1 instead of 1.45:1, and requires a 3.7 diff, DRAMATICALLY reducing his crawl ratio. The 4 speed is better. But as he pointed out, he's not off-roading, so crawl is not what he's looking for.
