    5 speed interchangeability?

    Hey there! My 81 5 speed needs new tranny linkages. Could I get these off a newer accord? I know they used the same engine up to 83 is that the same for the trannies as well?

    Pretty unusual thing to need since they're only tubes & brackets with a few pivots & bushes. Do you just need new bushes or did they rust away somehow?
    Anyway I don't know anyone who's tried alternetive parts but '82-5 Accord sound like they would be worth trying or maybe modified to work, possibly even '81-2 Preludes. The earlier '77-80 (pre Cat) car had gentler bends & a different rear mounting arrangement since they did not have to make room for the Cat-converter upon the exhaust system.

    Here's the '80 & '81 transaxle & shift linkages compared; '81 in front. Note the extra bend to the shift linkage, shortened g/shift & rear hanger-mtg.
