Installing a pilot bearing on a car that was formerly an automatic (so it didn't have a pilot bearing previously), any idea how deep to install the new bearing? Is it flush with the crank or recessed a ways?? Also, replaced rear main seal while leaving the seal retainer in place per FSM and applied ...

Re: ISO: Stock Carburetor for 1985 A/T w/ 3AC Engine

Might be a complete newbie question here, but is there a difference between a carb from auto and manual? I am swapping my 83 FWD hatchback from auto to manual transmission... I know it has some kind of linkage that goes to the auto trans right? Is this not on the manual car carburetor? How do I go a...

Re: Transmission compatability

Thanks for the input guys. I still haven't found a definitive answer so I suppose I will buy the transmission and cross my fingers. Surely somebody will buy it off of me if it doesn't work out. Thanks again ๐Ÿ‘

Transmission compatability

I'm trying to convert a 1983 automatic hatchback to a manual transmission. I have sourced a 5 speed out of a 2wd wagon from another country. I know this should bolt up, but will the new crossmember from the 2wd wagon bolt up to my hatchback? Any other concerns/input would be greatly appreciated ๐Ÿ™

Re: Wanted Manual Transmission for 2wd swap

I am going to go grab a manual transmission from a 4wd car this week whether I can use it or not. I'm hoping to be able to use it for this project but if not then it will be a spare for when I get my 4wd car. Anything else I should grab off this car for my conversion? I'm planning on grabbing the cl...

Re: My 3a engine rebuild notes

These are great notes thank you! I love your YouTube videos also. You should totally make a YouTube video of this process next time you rebuild a 3a (if there is a next time?). Thanks for all that you do for our community!
