To install a L52 in place of a L43 you must change...........

Fork, release bearing and collar, slave cylinder with push rod, two lower bellhousing bolts, trans handle, trim floor for top shifting handle instead of side shifter.

The crossmember, drivelines, starter, flywheel, pressure plate and clutch disk will all work just fine.

What about swapping the L43 for a W56 Mr Marlin? Any info?
