Any updates on the W56C? Looking at getting either a C or B rebuilt tranny and don't want to lose my short throw.

Updates? With the short throw kit? Like what?

Just wondering if there going to release it on their site or if it'll remain a call to order.

We have plans to make one, but at this time we don't have enough people asking for them to justify fast tracking them in R&D.  So let your friends know, the more we hear a demand for them, the more we will push to get it on the market. Spread the word.  :thumbs:

I don't know anyone has one at all.  I have one on my 2000 Tacoma along with clutch.  My drove it.  First time for him and loved it.  But the older model not 05+

I will buy it, if or when it comes out.  I don't want the "other guy's"

i did on my 2000.  Sadly  there are to many here who want chrome rims first. My friend helped me strip the truck before the insurance took it.  He was sold on Marlin Crawler.  He wanted the truck but was to late.

I installed mine yesterday on my R150F. I'll start by saying the instructions are excellent and easy to follow, kudos! The install went well except for trying to get the shift lever lock ring in. The lock ring you provided me did not fit. I fought with it for an hour but couldn't get the darn thing to twist into place. I tried it without the spring in and it still wouldn't twist.  I tried filing down the square edges of the channel in the lock ring and still couldn't get it to twist in.  After 2 hours of frustration I had the brilliant idea to re-use the factory original and it went in on the very first try without any effort.  So, I suggest that the lock ring grooves need to be rounded off or tolerances adjusted somewhat to fit your own hardware.

All that said, I'm happy with the result. My Toyota shifts like a truck now and I can feel the positive engagement of the gears instead of having to guess. How much of the improved feel is due to the new lever/seat and how much is from the new nylon bushing I couldn't say. Altogether pleased with the result.
