John,

Colin's kit has a piece that extends the input shaft and fits in the JH pilot bearing.  In addition his kit includes a sleeve that extends the tube on the front cover so that the throw-out bearing can travel the extra distance needed with the JH.  

The only part that is not a good fit is the shifter extension and housing.  The longest one available for the Supra (it is the one that Colin recommends) is still short by about 15mm so that the shifter is not quite perfectly placed in the existing opening.  I took a slightly shorter housing (commonly available) and sliced it and added a 25 mm section in to get me where I wanted to be on my JH.  If I have time I will take a photo of the spare that I made and the jig used to make sure the housing and shifter linkage are lined up correctly when welded.

I have used it for 1 summer.  It shifts quite well, and feels much tighter than my original 4 speed.
