Re: Converting an auto trans to a stick shift - its possible!

The relay I photographed was under the kick panel near the fuse box. I honestly don't remember what it's function was anymore. Ah, I'll have to check the kick panel location next time I am at the parts car, thanks. No worries, I'll have another look through the forum info here - maybe its function ...

Re: Converting an auto trans to a stick shift - its possible!

Hi eightfive4WD. It's been so long since I did that conversion. I seem to remember the car wouldn't crank until that relay was installed but I'm not sure anymore. For the wiring harness, both the automatic and standard plug into the same connector in front of the distributor. I did not have to do a...

Re: Converting an auto trans to a stick shift - its possible

I completed the 'sex change' operation on my '87 a/t car a couple months ago. Like you noted, the a/t floorpan seemed too "wimpy" to support the 4wd shifter and the whole top of the floorpan was shaped differently, so i cut it out of the donor car and screwed and glued it into the '87. Th...

Re: Converting an auto trans to a stick shift - its possible

http://i1063.photobucket.com/albums/t508/marlinh/070-1.jpg The green relay on the top right is what I swapped from the manual donor car to the automatic. There is a space on the relay panel for it. The only other wiring to do is connect or jumper the safety switch at the pedal. The wiring harness h...

Re: Looking for a posting

Hi, When I was previously perusing posts I found one on good vacuum set-up for Weber carb. Now that I actually want to refer to it to see if I can improve how the vacuum on my car is arranged I haven't found it. Does anyone know where it is? Or a good way to quickly find it? If I search "Weber...

Take heaps of photos before you disassemble. Best of luck! I definitely will! 8) Thank you I just did an auto to manual swap on my fwd '85 hatch. Hardest part is drilling the holes for the clutch pedal assembly and the hole for the clutch cable assembly. I recommend drilling out the cable guide on ...

https://i.imgur.com/qRYzT6g.jpg I am about to begin the automatic-to-manual surgery on my Tercel! Just picked up this carcass in Sierra Vista, AZ. 400+ mile round trip but well worth it. All the parts necessary in one inclusive package. Very nervous for the operation but very glad I've got a full d...
