    My newer style tranny ('94 muncie getrag-5 spd-Lo, 1,2,3,OD) has the X-fer case adapter made onto it. Long story, but just trust me, I'm gonna have to make a 1.5" spacer between the tranny & x-fer because the input/output shafts bottom out too early. Now the hard part the tranny doesn't have a place to mount the shifter for the 205. So, without having to fab my own does anyone have any ideas or know who makes one?
    Any questions feel free to ask, it might take a bit to explain. I don't yet have a digital camera!
    The spacer I can handle if I must, but if someone makes a bracket for the shifter it would save a lot of time.

    It seems a hell of a lot easier and cheaper. Ive done this in a vintage bronco swaping from a 3speed to a 4speed and it worked perfectly.
