Components needed for manual conversion

Hey all, I was just wondering what are all the bits and pieces required for a manual conversion? Obviously the gearbox itself, pedal box, and all that, but I wanna know all the little bits and pieces that are needed. Any other things to look out for or things that should be done when doing the conversion? I need to know everything

Thanks all

Alex

Re: Components needed for manual conversion

You do if your putting it on a Fairlane I'd reckon... Because they never came with 5spds. Im pretty certain there, I looked into it. Im also unsure if you can insure it as well because it will be a modified car.. hmm

Re: Components needed for manual conversion

You assume incorrectly guys, Fairmonts never came with manual's yet mine is legally approved with no engineers cerificate whatsoever.

I dare say it will be an approved swap like mine, which involved me ringing the rego office to advise of the change in engine only(supplying engine number) and that's it. When i mentioned a manual gearbox conversion they didnt care at all.

The LTD/Fairlane is only a modified version of the falcon platform, and uses virtually all the same componentry, so i can't see why the regs would be vastly different

Ring your local rego office and get confirmation before you commence work, it will save you time.

Re: Components needed for manual conversion

EF/EL Fairmonts did acually come with manuals, SVO's for example. Fairmonts are based on the Falcon chassis and engine and all that so an engineers certificate is not needed, but since alex has a lwb, then that's a different story.

I guess you could argue that falcon/fairmont wagons came in manual, and are LWB, so a fairlane/LTD is acceptable, but then the law can be picky and say that the fairlanes had a slightly different chassis upfront to accomodate for the longer front end, and therefore needs a cert.

I suggest you investigate the legalities further before making assumptions on the law and getting your hopes up. If it's all cool, then definately go for it.

Oh, and if an engineers cert is required (which, I believe almost certainly is the case) kiss your RACV insurance goodbye, say hello to Just Cars :D and the nice big premiums that come with it....:D:D:D
