Got a little bit more done but not without issues and blood shed, not so long ago this came........
Fantastic quality, easy enough straight bolt on part and jobs a good un......... nah not quite! Turns out i didnt quite read the ebay description properly! This is not designed for the jzx110 shifter housing which i have so the bolt holes dont line up, also the lower part of the gearstick with the pivot ball is not long enough. This came from australia i looked for an alternative or seperate part for the jzx110 but no luck, not wanting it to go to waste or trouble trying to sell it I then had the idea of having the billet block welded on and cutting and lengthening the pivot..... whilst cutting the pivot with a grinder it snagged on the metal, jumped out of my hand and hit my leg!!!! Needless to say it left a very deep cut which needed a trip to A&E, 4 stitches later i was out!! So left it a week then cracked back on with it.
job done, bolted it back on the box but it just wasnt going to work, there was no neutral and the throw for the gears was rediculous!! Literally 1 inch from being in 1st to being in 2nd! If i tried to drive the car like this i would have probably blown the motor as it would have been very easy to miss shift! The extra hight of the block and length of the pivot had made it even more of a short shift.
So back to the drawring bored, i cut the billet block back off and also cut the pivot back down. I then cut off the block that was on the shifter housing for the standard shifter and had the billet block welded on in its place, also had the pivot welded to the correct length. I didnt get any pictures of this bit as i was getting quite annoyed at the whole thing but once fitted it worked! The billet block has a slightly higher pivot point than the standard so still getting the affect of a short shift but this time i have a feel of neutral and the shifts are perfect!
Also have to mention i had the gear stick straightened as there was a kink in it and i wanted an OEM look to it and also had to get a machine shop to turn down the top of it with a lathe as the leather boot would not go over it.
Added the finishing touch with the 5 speed plaque
Looking more like a car again now, getting me more excited!
Ive also been busy making my oil return line for the turbo, -10AN PTFE teflon line with fittings and using a boostlab extended flange to clear the manifold flange. Pretty easy to make used the proper AN spanners and blocks so all nice and tight.
