T5 Conversion

i plan to do a T5 conversion next spring and trying to gather parts before hand
the T5 i bought does not have a yoke
transmission in the car is the original manual 3 speed
my question
will the yoke from the original transmission fit my T5
the T5 is borg warner from a 89 mustang

Thx
Steve

The guy who rebuilt mt T5 before I put it in assured me there is mo reason not to use the yoke from the C4 I took out. It's longer than the "conversion yokes" you see sold but he said there is nothing in the T5 that it could interfer with. I did have to shorten the driveshaft an inch.

I think I have carport tunnel syndrom

Thx for the replies
i read that the T5 , aod and c4 can use the same yoke
i haven't confirmed or read that the manual 3 speed and T5 yokes are interchangeable

Yes, they are interchangable, but the drive shaft needs to be shortend.

Yes, when I did my conversion I used the yoke from my C4. I swapped my gears in my rear last year and had to swap to a shorter yoke that I had laying around.
