My four speed is stuck in fourth gear, so I'm looking at swapping a five speed in. A guy near me in Houston Texas has a 63 series for an A14 that I can get for a reasonable price. From looking at the wiki it looks like I need a different drive shaft. I'm seeing it mentioned that the 63 series is shorter than the 56 and 60 series boxes. Will the shaft yoke still slide on? If so I could get mine lengthened. I won't be able to find an auto shaft around here. Also the clutch fork comes out the right side by the starter, while mine is on the left. Could I just run a longer hydraulic line? I know I'll have to fab a mount, but if my driveshaft won't fit then I won't buy it. Could someone in the know fill me in?

Your driveshaft won't fit. The input yoke is larger, it is the same as larger Datsuns (510,620, etc.) Old shafts (510) can generally be shortened or lengthened.
