^Yup already have all of that, just need the driveshaft which I'm well aware will need to be cut down.

Wasn't aware that it had to be an automatic, I'll keep an eye out for that next time I'm there.

The cross member from the 240 4 speed will not work - it has to be from a 240 automatic. It sounds like that would be wrong, but it isn't.
I grabbed all of the shifter, pedals, and shift rods from a 4 speed car at the JY. I only had a limited amount of tools and didn't have a believe a 17mm on me to remove the cross member. The bolts heads were accessible from inside the cabin.

Pulled everything in 15 minutes.
