Re: Fiat 131 transmission & shift extension wanted.

Do you plan to install the 131 trans in a 124 Spider ? Are you planning to use the 131 bellhousing and 131 clutch actuating arm ? There is a way to get the shift lever in a Spider friendly location without the extension.

Re: Is this a Plex unit?

I did not read all the posts but just seeing the "notch" for the wire to exit, my quick answer is its a 201 Plex... which was also tweaked by Terry T …. a seeming lifetime ago … and have been using it exclusively in the hot rod TC engines … and in 2012 we welded the advance gizmos … it now has a fix...
