I am in need of an A460 Trans. Would consider cross referencing (ie A465) but would need to know what else is required (shifter, mount changes). Have access to an A520 trans, would this work and what modifications would be needed? Looking for any input. Thanks for any help!

1982? The 5-speed showed up in early production 1983 FWD. Can you rebuild the A-460 that it has?
You would want access to a donor 1983-1990 AL/L-body Omni/Horizon/Rampage/Scamp stick-shift vehicle in order to do the 5-speed transaxle/shifter upgrade effectively.
A Motor's parts manual (or equivalent) will help with various years and part #'s. You can google part #'s to see what's out there.

To use an A 520 you would also need the shifter and cables from the 520 donor vehicle. Also you will need axles from an 88-90 automatic Omni/Horizon as they used the larger spline.

Thanks
