manual trans question

I have a t-5 that is dead. Everything that I have read says that the 94-95 manuals have an input shaft that is 3/4 inch longer than the earlier t-5.
Could anyone answer this question as to why the longer input shaft, and is it enough to make an older transmission not engage properly if used in my application. I am just looking for something to get the car driving. Just wanted to be able to get it back on the road and state inspected. It won't be an everyday driver for quite sometime.

Re: manual trans question

any 94-04 T-5 should work with out an issue as far as bolting it up goes. The issue is in 99+ the T-5s went to a magnet instead of a speedo gear~ so if you obtain one of them you will need to swap tailshafts.

Re: manual trans question

That is some good info. Thanks.
Do you know of any issues if I were to try to put a t-5 in from a car that is older than a 94?
Those seem to be the most plentiful.
I just need to move the car around, no serious driving.

Re: manual trans question

The only thing i can think of thats a big difference is that the new trannies are world class which just means they're stronger. Otherwise i think they're virtually the same
