First thanks again for the guidance of paint or no paint on my block. This rebuild is well on its way so now I need some advise on installing a 5 speed transmission in my 56 spider. I'm leaning towards a 101 5 speed as that would have been a more period upgrade. I have no clue on clutch changes , bell housing changes, Any thoughts? I assume the cross brace may need to change and drive shaft my have to be cut.

This might better be in the Giulietta forum?
One big thing is you'll have to adjust the tunnel some to fit, and especially the shifter hole. A 101 bellhousing and trans should bolt onto the 750 engine, if that's what you have. Rear cross member/mount probably will take some shimming and a 58/59 driveshaft will probably fit, since Alfa put split case transmissions in 750 Spiders from late 1958.
