Exchange of gearbox?

Hello,I just ask eventhough the question might sound silly:I have a Fiat Ritmo 85CL Comfort with automatic transmition (donīt know what itś called in the UK). Sadly I need to replace the gearbox,prefarably into a manual one. Gearbox and most bits needed I can obtain,but my car is RHD (in Sweden rare). Will I need a diffrent pedalrack?Or can I "add" a clutch pedal? It almost seems as it would be possible. If I need another pedelrack,do they differ in RHD and LHD (I mean shape,or angle)?

Any suggestions appricatied

Re: Exchange of gearbox?

This is not that easy to answer.

If I were you I would locate another manual Ritmo (Strada in UK), possible one forsale and inspect it carefully having first looked / photographed your pedal and column assemblies.

Were this a 1600TC or 2000TC Ritmo/Strada then I could help a little more with parts images, but even then there is no better substitute than actually looking with ones own eyes.

You will also probably need to visit a scrap yard (car recycling agent) to get the parts you need.

The Ritmo/Strada and Regata are essentially the same car mechanically so look a Regatas as well.
