Do you have to modify the trans tunnel to fit a Richmond 5 speed in a tri-five. I understand the shifter hole is in a different location, but does the tunnel have to be widened? Thanks

You need to talk directly with 2Loose here on CT; he's had a Richmond 5 speed in one of his Tri-Fives, and he just may even convince you it's not the way to go (parts availability). Might also go over to JalopyJournal.Com/the HAMB, in the classifieds; I believe there's a Richmond 5 speed in the classifieds there. Or, it might have been the Seattle area Craig's List. I lose track of so much stuff that's available out there, but I only concern myself with stuff that interests ME.

Check Summitt's listing for 5 spds. I'm sure I saw a OD 5 Spd. there that does not require anything special as it is to replace a stock Muncie trans.

It's all good. mostly
