B series swap shift linkage question
« on: August 07, 2011, 12:06:29 am »
Im just a little confused on what needs to be done to a b series shift linkage for it to work on a 88 hatch.I have a DA shift linkage but info I have found is some people cut and reweld the da linkage and others say you cant and you have to cut both ends off and weld the da ends to the ef linkage. What really needs to be done?

Where should I cut and weld it? By the shifter,in the middle,or towards the front? I dont want to cut and weld at a place that will mess with how it shifts

Cut in it the area that's straight and not angled.

It best to mount the shift linkage as-is to the car, measure, and then cut.

Yeah, cut it in the straighte st area. Then install the 2 cut parts in the car.

Make sure the tranny is in 4th gear (rested rotationa lly and pushed in)

Have someone hold the shifter in the best 4th gear location
(I say 4th gear cause neutral can sometimes not be in the exact middle like 3rd/4th)

Measure and cut the excess, reinstall to double check length and all.
Manually move trans into 3rd (pull it straight out) and double check shifter position isnt to close to dash.
Manually move trans to 2nd and make sure its not too close to you.

If all is well mark very well, remove and weld.
