    Note - the flat on the c60 selector shaft positions the cable linkage approx 10 mm further out from the centre of the box. Until I fit the cables, I won't know if that's going to be a problem. If necessary, I'll modify the cable mount on the engine.

    Talking Finished and installed

    Update : the gearbox is in!
    The chassis mount was within 1mm, and the aw11 shift cables mated perfectly. All 6 gears and reverse can be selected with no problems.
    The c160/blactop combination has an alloy stiffener that joins the lower block to the gearbox. This needs to be ground away to clear the aw11 rhs drive shaft - I removed approx 8 mm of metal, but managed to do so without any issues.

    A successful conclusion.
    Thanks to Aaron Willis for help with part selection for the gearbox, and John Ellis for fabrication of mounts & brackets.

    Final update (unless it breaks) : car is on the road, all gears select smoothly. Combined with the 20v blacktop, it's a very balanced package.

    Excellent write up.

    I just sent you a PM. How's the MR2 coming along? I'd be very interested to have a chat and a look at it one day if your free. I'm also in eastern suburbs of melb.
