91 DA Auto to Manual Hydro Q's
I'm in the middle of converting my automatic 91 DA to a manual, but there a couple things I cant seem to find definitive answers on.
1) To accommodate the new hydro transmission I purchased a conversion mount from innovative (passenger side). My question is whether or not I am going to need to replace the front motor mount as well, and if I do which one should I use (manual or auto)? I was going to replace all mounts in one shot since mine are well worn but when I look into buying them they appear to be transmission specific. most of the forums I've read on this swap do not mention the front motor mount at all.
2) Has anyone been able to complete this swap and retain their cruise control? I would like to retain it if it is possible but I'm not sure if any additional wiring would be needed. Since I'm using the Hush hydro bracket on my pedal assembly I wont have a clutch safety switch and I'm well aware that pressing the clutch wouldn't disengage the CC. I would be perfectly fine with just pressing the brake pedal to disengage the CC.
Sorry for the long write-up, and thanks in advance!!
