T700

I am curently rebuilding a HQ wagon and am planing on putting a 5l VN motor in with T700 box. I have herd that the T700 has electronic shift. does this mean that the gear stick is not needed and that I could just mount a switch say on the dash or somwhere as I want to keep the bench seat.

Speedo not working, any ideas?

I have converted my HX Kingswood sedan from 202 auto to 253 with trimatic auto. My speedo was initially working but has since stopped. The cable itself appears intact but the little gear which meshes with the worm drive in the transmission seeems to be loose, I found it loose in the transmission when I was looking at it earlier, lucky to recover it. I havnt changed the diff, do I need a different little gear or cable.

Auto to manual conversion

Hi all,
Does any1 know whats needed for a conversion from an original hydramatic gearbox to a manual (crashbox),

I know you need a manual colum, pedal setup and different tailshaft, but does the crossmember just bolt in or is it different?
