3 speed column shift on 1980 WB 6cyl to Celica or Supra?

I have a 3 speed column shift and want to change to a celica or supra gearbox. I just want a nice reliable box. I am not running around trying to do burnouts or anything in my nice old ute. I want to drive to Sydney in June and I have been told a 5 speed will be reliable and more fuel efficient. I just need to get the job done. Can anyone give me some advice or reccomend a reliable source of information. One problem is that I am in WA and all the good mobs seem to be over east. Can you help?

My HR is dying

Hi guys

My HR has just had heaps of things go bust in the last week. First of all my girlfriend drove 150km with the handbrake on and I need to have the discs remachined. Then my diff blew(it was an LSD banjo) then my 5 speed celica gearbox shat itself. So anyway should I put in a different diff or will it cost too much? Would it be wise to just replace the celica box or should I go to a supra? Can I put disc brakes on the car or is it not worth the money? I run a fairly worked 186 with lowered susp, extactors etc.

drum brakes

Hi everyone,
Replacing drum brake shoes on my EH wagon, looking at a crap Gregorys manual with no pics and hard to decipher directions. Can anyone tell me if it matters which way around the primary shoes and secondary shoes go for left or right hand side? And does it matter which way around the adjustment wheel goes? The way they were set up is different from the way the manual tries to explain it.
