It was soon discovered that the whole thing operates beautifully but all the gears are in different positions.....

I'd consider that a complete success.

I once installed an aftermarket shifter on a toploader, but I only got one gear, although it was in different positions.

I built my first race car when I was 15 & used a flathead diff. First fire up I gave it a big rev, dumped the clutch & crashed into the bench. The diff was up side down. rolleyes

Just found out that the SFI rating on the harness we are buying adds an extra $90USD  above the FIA approval. Now anyone who can out -gouge a business that is associated with Formula 1 has a cheek referring to themselves as "non-profit"...

In other news due to the urgency of the current work plan for the car and some problems that came up with my welder I've had to shell out for a new one. It has too many knobs.

Sid;

Don't feel bad. Andy Granatelli called a big press conference to unveil his new turbine Indy car. With great fanfare, the doors of the hanger were rolled back and his new car was driven out- and crashed right into the side of the door. The steering rack was upside-down.

Funny thing, I was cautioned to steer to the left when walking on the sidewalks down under or risk head-ons.
I got so good at it that I was cussing the tourist that veared to the right.   grin

I'll be setting up a small stall on Gairdner to sell handy conversion devices for our northern hemisphere friends. I expect some good sales, I will be stocking the following.

* Welding goggles, useful when dealing with our currency notes which are printed on polymer, and in different colors....
* large wallet. Useful for replacing note clips, our currency notes are different sizes depending on denomination.
* Single lens 1:1 telescope with headclamp. reverses and inverts vision giving the impression of driving on the right( not wrong) side of the road with wheels pointing down.
* cotton wool. To be placed in ears, there's no point being able to hear Animal if you can't understand what he's saying it only makes interpreting his hand gestures more difficult.
* Large "PETROL" sticker to be placed above fuel filler, if you ask for "gas" you will be directed to the propane.
* Tattoo kit. Useful for tattooing "mobile" on the back of your hand, never ask anyone in Australia for their "cell number" Australians are very sensitive about being mistaken for prisoners.
