Rod Change Installation Kit If you are among the very many of us that are finally updating our vintage Minis to the more modern Rod Change shift linkage, Mini Mania can now make it a lot easier. Any Mini body not originally equipped with a rod change has a difference in the floor tunnel where the end of the shift extension is mounted. On the later cars it is squared off and on the early cars it is rounded. The stock rod change mount is flat! Mini Mania has now designed an easy to install kit that allows a direct bolt-in of a rod-change shifter into an early car. This kit includes rubber mounts, bracketry and drilling alignment guides.

Procedures
  1. Align the holes in the red wooden locating blocks with the holes in the bracket and tape or glue the blocks to the bracket.
  2. Attach bracket, with locating blocks attached, to the gear lever housing and raise the housing until the locators touch the tunnel. Drill two 5/16” diameter holes through the tunnel at the spots marked, using the bracket and locating blocks as guides.
  3. Mark the location of the gear lever on the tunnel.
  4. Lower the housing and remove the locating blocks from the bracket.
  5. If you are converting from a “magic-wand” transmission, you will have to cut a hole of appropriate size in your tunnel to accomodate the gear lever. Care should be taken to carefully cover and seal the existing hole.
  6. If you are converting from a “Remote-shift” transmission, you may use the existing hole in the tunnel.
  7. Enlarge the 5/16” holes drilled in step 3 above to 3/8” diameter to facilitate installation of the mounts .
  8. Install the mounts with the fasteners as shown in Figure 1.

Engine mountings are a whizz to fit as the Mini ones fit straight onto any of the other units. Just remove the Metro/AA/1300GT ones and swop the mounts over from the Mini unit. If they’re split, fit new ones, they’re cheap. If using the AA/1300GT unit - it's advisable to cut off the 'wings' on the front plate that carried the engine mounts on the radiator end.
