confused BA Auto shifter question

Hi all,

Do the Auto BA's still use a rod and linkage to connect to the gearbox for shifter selection, or are they completely electronically controlled.


I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think

Re: BA Auto shifter question

I'm guessing you're thinking about trying to fit a BA shifter to your EA?

If so - no chance. BA has a completely different mechanism to any other model, right up to AU. I think you can put it on, but its a sh!tload of work, and you dont have the ability to 'lock' it so you cant accidentally bump it out of gear and into neutral etc.

IIRC, Falkeen was looking at putting one on his ute, he may be able to explain things a bit better.

So that would be a setup somewhat like a B&M Megashifter, they have a cable going to the gearbox.
