ok i read your thread skimmed through how your setting up the pictures and figured i would offer up some advice. i have a dana 300 doubler, i don't know how you planned on setting it up but the throw from the sticks is going to be long due to how low the levers are starting from if that makes any sense i sketched up a quick draing of how i paln on redoing mine because i have a 12-14" long hole in my trans tunnel so i can shift properly. heres how i plan on solving the issue hope this helps
Haha, man thats sweet. Do you know how much work its gonna be to fab all that up and make it work well? Seems to me like it mightbe kinda hard to shift with all those pivot points but I like that design. Please let us all know how it works out when your done.
will not work with 3spd autosi just found this out today when tring to finish the shifter but a part of the trand will be in the way and cannot be moved. if this were a standard trans this would not be an issue sorry guys i tried
clock the case up farther and it will clear the tranny pan.
i rotated it to try that and the driveshaft wont clear the pan as it was i only had a half inch. i talked to a guy at down east aff road and he said that there flip kit wont work with the tf 999 because of drive shaft clearence. the stak case i guess adresses this problem by clocking it down a bit and with the shift rails on top that isnt a problem either. i guess being broke doesnt help matters any. im just going to find a 3550 5 speed and put that up in there then i can use the d300
you can run a 2 piece drive shaft to clear the pan. Just make a dog leg around it and you are good to go. Of course, these are just options that work. I wouldn't give up on the auto if you are set on it.
