need help. going to get the car towed home today from the inspection station where after passing all state tests the 5 spd issuzu transmission locks up and has to be pushed out onto the lot. Can't find any rhyme or reason but it is locked up internally after full overhaul and only 45 miles on the new motor and trans. Is there substitute manual transmission I could put in the car? done with this Issuzu. Not that mechanically inclined to do an automatic with removing the steering column and all that. Is an adaptor needed for the 2.5 and if so where to I obtain one? What manual transmission could be swapped with very little technical skills.

As Always I appreciate everyones help and comments, but if this one doesn't work MY wife is having Good Will pick up the car....

The Isuzu is a good transmission. Maybe you should be done with whoever did the 'overhaul'.

Please describe your problem. Exactly what is "locked up" -- the wheels, the shifter, etc.?
If the shifter is locked up, remove the cables from the levers on the transmission and try to shift through the gears there at the transmission.
