    M66 fwd will do the job nicely....Oblark has one fitted in his 855 and there is a build thread on here if you have a look as the linkage does require some work from memory

    Current Volvo's 1995 854 Gul T-5R 1996 855 Olive T-5R 1997 855 Olive AWD 1999 V70R AWD and 2005 XC90 D5 AWD
    Previous Volvo's 1987 745 gle 1989 745 GL 1995 855 Olive GLE 2001 V70 p2

    To fit the M66 gearbox to a T5 you'll need to manufacture a rear gearbox mount and modify the gear linkage on the gearbox.

    ah...so you modified the levers to suit the the linkage cables Rob, I was hoping to make custom bushes that would also do the adaption when I fit my m66 awd to the v70r awd p1, I realised I'd need to make a custom cable bracket, but that doesn't look to be a big issue for me, rear mount is something I'd over looked though....!!!

    With the awd set up you won't need the rear gearbox mount you'll side to make one to fit on the side of the gearbox.

    I'm wondering if I still have any of the m66 to 850 cable brackets anywhere, I known 100 percent I still have the jig.
