    WTB NEEDED Getrag 5 spd

    I tried to install an Isuzu but the release bearing is too small for the Kevlar clutch I have.
    I am in need of a Getrag.
    The car is a 1988 Fiero if that makes a difference.


    PLEASE HELP!!

    get a newer fwd unit and rodneys conversion kit. The newer ones have some nicer features, and are way easy to find.

    Jim:

    Jerry is correct. You can use a newer Getrag in a kit car but I know it is hard to use in an 88 if you are simply seeking a replacement. 86-88 are the same with the exception of the dip stick. If you use a newer transaxle for a replacement the spedometer is not work. The Fiero uses a HAL type that is not compatible with the newer spedometer pulses. You will need to split the cases. I am looking for a newer Getrag myself and would be happy to sell the old one to you. The 3rd gear syncro needs renewed ($385 for the part).

    Rodney makes a speedo adapter that prevents having to open the case at all

    Quite true going from the new style back to the old HAL type inducer for the 88 Getrag, unfortunately it is not available for the old style Getrag and the new style imputs used on the new spedometers. If there was one available, I would have used it. One can drean though. I seem to do a lot of that lately.

    I have a 5spd that I bought off of Pennocks a few months ago. I sold the car soon after getting the tranny. I forgot if its a GETRAG or just a plain jane 5spd. I can get some pics to you by tomorrow and you can figure it out for yourself.

    I am in NYC and I got it shipped to me via UPS so I dont see it being a big deal shipping it UPS.
