There are lots of how tos, it can be done, finding a machine shop to do the internal machining for the "detents" can be the hardest bit.

PM me and I'll see if my mate that had his converted will speak to you. He bought a box in the end as finding a machinist to take on the internal circlip part was causing delays. However he did locate all the parts except the two dowels for centreing (no biggy to turn) that aren't available.

My mate found the engineering drawing for the mods to the bell housing casting. Barring that it isn't that different to any auto to manual conversion.

He probably still has a load of spares for repairing SMG too.
