    Speco 3 speed floor shift

    I drove an old XY Falcon back in the day that had been converted from the tree to the floor, still the 3 speed . I kept wanting to go from 3rd to 4th even tho it wasnt there, just my mind said "its now a 4 speed with this floor change". Id find an auto for your car. Keep it simple.

    XY Column Manual to Single Rail

    I converted my sisters XP Ute 10 odd year ago. Her's had the 3 on the tree and hydraulic clutch and we used a single rail gearbox. Now we used her 3 speed bell housing and we had to get the centre hole machined out to fit we also had to get a new hole drilled and tapped in the bell so the box would bolt up to it. We used a brand new 4 speed clutch kit when we installed it. Then we dummied it up under the floor so i could mark out where to cut the hole for the shifter. We never had to mod the trans tunnel, was simple cut a hole and stick the shifter thru. We did have to get a new gearbox cross member as the 3 speed was different to the 4 speed and i think i just got that from Sydney classic Falcon? (i have a fuzzy memory) Never changed diff ratio's, just drove it and it worked. Still does today , she still got it Oh and hers has bucket seats so never had issues with shifter. She has an XF centre consol in there and all look well.

    Fixing dash backing

    If its what im thinking, just use a bead of silastic along the dash ( i always find that black engine silastic the best) and put the dash back in per factory. It screws up to those white nylon plugs if my memory is working perhaps use 4 short self drillers thru the brittle plastic and into the metal bulkhead. 1 in each corner and 2 in the center. Let it dry and presto. your dash wont squeak again is a good point but if you have to ever remove it again, that is going to be difficult. Unless you take the windscreen out so you can cut the cured silastic.

    Bear, yeah me still lurking about, i pop in from time to time. I was living in Mudgee NSW at the time and the car belonged to a friend. That would have been 17 years ago?? I dont know what my mate Mark did with the Falcon, i dont think he owned it very long. I have not spoken to him either for prolly 10 years??
