Transmission tunnel repair

February 19th, 2010 No comments

So, a previous owner installed some kind of wacky shifter. In order to make room for it, they cut a big chunk out of the frame that goes across the transmission tunnel. Since I’m trying to strengthen everything now, I am going to change the shifter out, and Ray and I will build some custom shift linkage (more pics of that later) that will fit better. We’ll bend our own rods, and use rod ends instead of the stock shift linkage mounts.

Because we’ll be making the new linkage and replacing the shifter, I repaired the hole in the frame. That will certainly make things stiffer, since it’s one of the few crossmembers that exist in this old unibody car.
