No hammering of the manual tunnel is needed to fit a B310 (Sunny) 5-speed. I had both the A15 and 60a 5-speed in my 1200. It's a total bolt in.

I did the same thing although the mounting gave me grief and depending on what clutch cable you have you made need to give the tunnel a few kisses.

MATE GO FOR THE DOG LEG FIVE SPEED OUY OF A 310 SUNNY. THEESE ARE PRETTY STRONG AND BOLT STRAIGHT UP TO THE MOTOR. ALL YOU WILL HAVE TO DO IS FABRICATE A NEW GAERBOX CROSSMEMBER.

cheers for the replys dudas now for some more questions form me

arent the five speed datto boxes a little tricky to source?? i was under the impression that they might be pretty difficult to obtain thats why i was thinking of a celica box, theyve got a good rep amungst the 1200 crew... also what about fitting a skyline box of some sort

5-speed Datsun gearboxes are easy to source. You just need some money . There is one for sale in the classifieds right now (in Melbourne). Another for sale on eBay (in USA). On just sold two days ago (in Seattle).
