Looking at putting a manual vn-vs v8 in my HX tonner. Im leaning towards a vs v8 but finding one complete with manual box is looking expensive. I have a 5spd conversion from an old series 1 VN v6. How hard is it to convert the v6 box to fit v8? And is there any difficulty finding a flywheel to suit a vs v8? Im in NZ where the v8s are thinner on the ground and asking big money a lot of the time. Looking into the possibilty of buying a crashed damaged v8 from manheimfowles in melbourne then next time im over in melb ripping the engine, box, loom computer out and throwing on a pallet. Has anyone had dealings with mainheims damaged branch in oz? How much is a write off worth over there?
