Okay...so I have a crossmember and the reverse switch. No gearbox or bell housing. I have the shifter mechanism, linkage rods and under console boot. I have the clutch linkages. No shift stick or gear knob. I have a replica of the console cut out.

The upsetting bit is the floor hump has been cut out...but I do have a replica fiberglass one that I am going to use as a template to make an exact steel replica.

...The HQ Muncie was 31 spline (fine spline)...apparently there was a 28 spline Muncie used in the USA.

...The original HQ GTS 350 radiator is a cellular core, both manual and automatic...The later rebuilds etc. are a tubular core.

...They were known in the 'States as a "Rockcrusher"...fine spline and wide bellhousing.

...the floor hole was roughly cut out from new. the special LH side Muncie/Hurst hump was screwed down over the rough mess.

I thought the hump was welded to the tunnel, didn't realise it was screwed down.

And I'm guessing nobody does a cellular core anymore and you can't get them?

All Muncies at the time the HQ boxes were built should be the big input and output shaft type. It was an upgrade for from memory the 1970 or 1971 model year.

Rockcrusher is an M22 Muncie and they can be found in both early and late types. HQ box is an M20 Muncie. There is nothing special about HQ Muncie box, but they are instantly indentifiable by certain people.

Does anyone know the correct number push in hurst stick from the USA that is the same length as the Aus one?
I know that they can be bent to the opposite hand and matched to the same bend.
