  • I should have been more specific.... I KNOW that reverse works without the wiring... I need to know which wires it is again for the lights.... I know which ones they are on the manual transmission. I want to know which wires on the engine harness from an automatic harness to match with the green and yellow wires from the manual..... now I may just track this down and fix it myself. I did this part of the write up YEARS ago... I have completed several of these swaps but have only reused the auto harness once or twice.

    • After monkeying around with the clutch cable. I broke down and got a brand new one from the dealer. Works fine now. The money saved getting a used clutch cable from the junkyard didn't pay off this time.

          • I think they're M12 x 1.25, but I can't remember the lengths.

            • Which ones are you interested in. They are M12x1.25 but there are different lengths and there is one nut. I have mine out right now so let me know which ones and I'll measure the lengths.

              • OldGuy, that would be helpful in general if you did that.
                For some odd reason it's not documented anywhere on what lengths are needed. I called the dealer parts department at one time and even their system couldn't tell them.

                How's your conversion going?

                  • The 5 speed mount is a two piece mount. I am not sure how you are planning to install that mount. Are you using the spacer method described early in this thread. If so, the bolt lengths would be longer than the stock bolts. Whatever, I'll measure the length of the standard bolts for the 5speed two piece tranny mount. I'll do it tomorrow and post it. If thats not what you need, let us know.

                    • ???? I thought we were talking the tranny to engine block bolts. LOL.
                      When you say plugs are you talking about the electrical connectors that were connected to the transmission? I think you can leave them just hanging there. They were for the shift solenoids. Once you disconnect the transmission ECU, they won't be needed anyways.

                      • I thought he was talking about the tranny mount bolts. Go figure. What is he talking about?

                        • i am shimming the manuel mount to fit instead of buying the auto to manuel mount which will be bought later on

                          i know in the write up it said they are 1 inch longer and you use a 1 inch thick nut to fill the space but what are the lengths of all the bolt for the tranny mount i dont know which bolts went to the tranny mount i know they are 12 x 1.25 but need the lengths of them

                          also on the big plus thing with all the wire that you have to ground out 2 and connect 2 together which ones do you ground and which ones connect

                          • Ok. Thats what I thought you wanted. I'll get the lengths and post them tonight or tomorrow.

                              • The tranny mount assembly is in two pieces. A bottom plate attaches to the tranny and the mount attaches to the bottom plate. The bottom plate uses 3 bolts to attach to the tranny. They are all 25mm long. I measured the depth of the holes in the tranny and they are close to 40mm deep and are threaded all the way down. So a slightly longer bolt would work too. The tranny mount (the big rubber thing) attaches to the bottom plate with 2 bolts and one nut. The two bolts are 30mm long. One screws down into a nut that is welded to the top of the bottom plate. The other one is inserted from the bottom of the bottom plate and screws upward into a nut welded to the top of the tranny mount. Those bolts could be a touch longer as well but not much. Hope this helps.
