Suggestion...Tech articles on this site

Ive only been here 2 days so please take what I say only as constructive rambling on this topic that Im about to start.
There are a lot of threads started and advice given which is very good ( Streetneat as the great PooBhaa on panel work as an example).
Would it be possible to have say a thread which gathers a lot of good input stuff (tech data, how to's , etc) be put aside in a category called 'Tech articles' by the administrator of this site. Maybe a Tech shed workshop.
Then people could make reference to that site and find something that was discussed maybe 6 months ago.
The raising of a thread to the status of Tech article would need to be proposed by members and be soley at the discression of the administrator as to acceptance.

Gearbox woes

Went for a drive last night & the vacuum line from my trimatic to the inlet maniflod kept coming off every time i was accelerating too much because the hard line there is under the accelerator spring & it kept pushing the rubber tubing off the connector. In the dark, i must have pulled it a bit much or something because now it won't change gears unless it revs right out, up to 40mph to change to 2nd & 50mph to 3rd. It then really clunks down to 2nd when decelerating.
Any ideas what i have done or what to try to remedy this?

Answers Needed for ne Gearbox

I've got a 67 HR running with a 3-speed auto and i am looking at getting a manual for it. I have heard that the toyota 5-speeds are easy to convert, but is there any other options of gearboxes i could use that are easy to convert, and if so, what modifications need to be done...
Thanks for the help
