Hi Mike,

I have been following your story with interest because my 4 speed on my 3500
S has developed a wine.  I have a V 8 with a celica 5 speed but the body has
collapsed and it is out of registration.  i liked the geer box because of
its low rpm 5th.  My dilemma is ????

Use the 5 speed celica from the wreck on my 3500S
Locate an SDI 5 speed
re build my 4 speed
locate another 5 speed, for example the supra you have
what conversions are necesary

I have put a 4 speed into an auto 2000 so I am confident I can do the work
but would be grateful of your advice
