As I remember, there are two different configurations of shifting arms on the iron box. One has a splined attachment to the shift arms the other has two flat sides (the 3 shafts that the arms attach to) and the arms slip over and are bolted on. That configuration MAY use the same shift rods as the one piece box but I dont think the rods from the splined ones wont work. You will have to investigate further to be sure. I no longer have any trannies lying around.
My guess would be they are not interchangeable but you never know, like I said, they might be. Hopefully someone will know for sure.
