Yes, finally someone is doing this right! I plan on starting this once I'm done with my black interior conversion. Why did you decide on the S2K CMC? Is it larger than the tegs?

Edit: You're doing the swap DIY Style or taking it to a shop?

Didnt include a starter in the price? I dont think the auto starter is the same as the manual..Im also looking into this 5 speed swap but when I thought about it, going through all that work wasnt worth it when I still end up with a 15-16 second car, not to mention 1200-1300 down the drain. Then again you probably love your car more than I love mine


Edit: Plan on keeping the auto ecu and cluster also?

This is a fun (sarcastic laugh) project. A friend/member did one about two years ago and he had some fun.

I will do my best to get in touch with him, and see if I can aide in any advice (if you need it.)

Either way, best wishes with the project.

Opening and Diagnosing the Transmission:

To begin, I first drained the transmission outside and proceeded to carry the transmission to my spare room. A comfortable work environment is a MUST: (no I'm not married)


A little wrenching here, and there:


Some careful prying of the case:


And we're in! Slide off the mainshaft bearing:


This is the 5th/reverse synchro sleeve and synchro set. Top of the mainshaft is where it sits. Slide the sleeve UP and you're in 5th. Slide it DOWN and you're in reverse.


There's the problem. Synchro sleeve is toast. Rounded and mushroomed the bottom side of the sleeve so that it wouldnt even slide to the reverse position. The sleeve has been slid off the mainshaft and flipped over to reveal the bottom side of the synchro sleeve.

Is the mainshaft bearing the same as the input shaft bearing?

You should do an LS 5th gear, lol. This is great. If you want your pictures to be more visible, and you don't have photoshop (if you do ask me how to make them more visible, its quite easy), send them to me. you might also turn up the exposure on your camera.

The rest of the pics are much better. But I'll still go adjust the levels so they show up better. Thanks for the tip.

And yes, on the first part . More pics later today.
