74 DL sedan 1400 4speed to 1600 5speed swap

Recommended Posts

Yikes! Nice effort. I don't recall hearing about so much relocation work from Charlie or the guy or two from down under. But you are the man so rock n roll!

 

Idk man. The stage one cars have a different front end set up than the stage two cars. They don't seem as ready to accept the 5 speeds as I had hoped.

So here is the modified mount braket.

With the mount attached. I had to cut down and rethread the studs to a reasonable size.

I still got some work to get the shift lever to the correct hight but it works enough to drive it.

Here it is in place.

Oh god! The speed is so much better now! It's amazing. This was the key component to making this thing daily livable.

 

I had a tread around here some where with some pics on it.

But here's another for good measure.

Great, I'll get dis'd by a few hundred puerto ricans.

Lime Rock vintage Fest I used to attend 20 - 15 years ago. Sterling Moss is grand Marshall or something so my friend Chris will likely take his Lotus up there. I'll probably save my $ for the following weekend at NJMP
