4 speed Manual transmission linkage

on the three piece iron bodied transmissions. Is the linkage the same for each different design. Flatback vs. Slopeback design?

I don't know. If you know which cars came with each transmission, you could look up the part numbers to see if they are the same.
Whoever said there's nothing more expensive than a cheap Mercedes never had a cheap Jaguar.

83 300D Turbo with manual conversion, early W126 vented front rotors and H4 headlights 367,xxx miles
08 Triumph Street Triple 30,xxx miles, lowered 10mm in front, Pirelli Angel GT tires, EBC HH brake pads, otherwise stock.
88 Jaguar XJS V12 93,xxx miles. I should be in the garage now.

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.
