  • Transmission: Tunnel and console 4 speed to powershift

    Not as easy as it looked. I should have cut the transmission tunnel out of the donor car. The center console that being a storage compartment must be different also
    Has anybody done this conversion, of course some would why. Of course this is on a GT Hawk. And I'm in a time crunch I got to be out of my house in three weeks. But on the plus side I'm retiring in three weeks

    I have cut open the tunnels from a flightomatic to make a powershift. The center console for a powershift is slanted more than a non powershift to kiss up against the fiberglass box.

      I learned the console thing the hard way too. When I put the floor shift in my Lark the console wouldn’t fit next to the shift tower.
