    '92 5 speed (A523?) Parts Compatibility

    I found a '92 caravan locally with a 5 speed. Can I use this shifter and pedal box for my '88 when I do my manual swap?

    Something tells me there are some minor changes to work around but absolutely yes.. get everything you possibly can.

    should be a 3.77 523, good all around unit if you dont go stupid with power and abuse. Where are you in southern Md ? I have most all the tools for the manual transmission servicing and some parts if you want to freshen up anything before installing it.

    +1 for robbing everything you can off of it. There is a ton of good stuff in every trans out there.

    Well my van is a v6 so I cant use the transmission itself from what I understood, because thats a 4cyl bellhousing. I was mainly concerned with the pedal box/shifter/linkage ect for the day when I find a good v6 trans. My plan would be to drive the thing as a beater until it quits and then take it all off. Maybe boost it idk. I am in the Lexington Park area.

    Year for year with a few changeover dates, internally the transmission is the same. call it source of parts for when you get a 543 and need something. I'm in Mechanicsville but work down off Pacific drive at JF Taylor, trainer products group.

    If you don't pull the whole trans I need the diff out of it if you're willing to pull that out.
