After a long time on this project I finally turn to the original problem that sparked this whole thing off in the first place. The transmission. The auto zf box was slipping/not engaging. I bought a replacement, fitted it, and have not aligned the torque converter correctly and damaged the transmission pump Cursing turned quickly into hysterical maniacal laughter at my situation.
So back to square one.
I want it to be manual.
Considering the 3.6 left the factory in auto or manual I’m presuming that mountings and fixtures are already on the car? I.e the gearbox mount, while needing a new one, will it mount into the area that the auto mount was situated? The pedal assembly, if I buy the pedals from a manual 3.6 will they bolt straight in?
I would also really appreciate my shopping list to be looked over:
Manual prop shaft
Manual transmission mount
I’ve heard that the service parts for the getrag 265 are no longer being produced? With this in mind am I better off with a different transmission?
Trying to keep the budget as small as possible…
Some photos of the car as is, still need to flare rear arches, group 44 style, yet not as square and extreme…
