A wrecking yard was selling the full conversion reconditioned box, flywheel, clutch, pedle box all the other stuff and manual computer for $695. I was stupid enough to buy it and decide to do the conversion. My dad has done this sort of stuff on trucks before so i was lucky and i got the guide from the forums. All i can say is this is so dam hard. What evil demon designed my ea the bolts on the shroude are impossible to remove and my dad ended up getting stuck with that job Its just insanity we got the 4spd out like 4hrs later and cleaned up from all the oil. The cluclth plate, flywheel and spigot baring are in there now aligned. The 5spd isnt in yet and the pedle box is yet to come iv heard the hole dash has to come out for that :( I luckly got a very good box and everything in good condition so its going really well but just so hard. Lets hope its all worth it when its over wish me luck for tommrow !
dont worry too much about it.... it will be worth it all in the end.... manuals are soo much fun!!! you'll love it!!! i just hope u got a good box, cause wreckers can be dodgy and sometimes only do half of what they sed they did... anyways good luck tommoro... let us know how ya go!!! :s6:

yeah I did too! just a thought, just pull EVERYTHING out! don't try to force anything cause it won't go and you'll end up breaking something.... it took me 3 hours to get the bloody thing in!!(by myself) oh yeah, I took the drivers seat out too, gives you heaps more room to move.
