You need to remove half an inch or so of tunnel from the back of the hole to allow the remote linkage to fit.

The factory bracket won't fit as the tunnel is a different shape.
I just bolted on two flat plate L shaped brackets from the mount to the tunnel.

Been there 12 years so can't have been too badly wrong.

Why would the Chokes have remote shift? I know the rod-change has to be shortened, and that's because the Moke was never offered with a remote....

How's everything Bill? Keep me in mind if you have an extra body shell! I've disassembled a 300ZX and have a tiny turbo V6, 5 speed, and LSD IRS rear end... Have you ever installed wheelie bars on a Moke/Choke?

The under-floor bracket and rubber mount with the shift extension in the first photo, and the bracket itself with an overkill version my brother welded up in the 80s! I have one or two more of the stock ones if you need one...

Yup I use those to mount the rod change unit to the shape of the MK1 (and Mk2) floor. I'll find my brackets and post a photo...

Thanks....show me a link if you could.  Can't seem to find it Jemal.

Happy to use a used one also.

I had thought a bracket was needed to go to Rod change from Remote.....  I'm bass akwards

edit:  I found this, but I'm going the other way

Of course! I have the entire package just removed from a friend's Mk1. I just went the other way and installed one of my trick short throw rod-change units with that incredible A+ 998 I built. I think I have several of the brackets that mount under the floor. The round rubber mount is still available here. That's all that attaches to the shifter extension housing.

Anyone done the swap and / or have a picture of whatever bracket may be needed for the remote housing
