Re: Transmission Conversion
I have converted my ED Fairmont Ghia to manual. I did it myself and it took roughly two days (there was a donor car - last of the EB's). It wasn't too difficult to do, however the most testing part was changing the pedal box, as I had to completely remove the dashboard.
The rest was ok. If you have patience and a little time, you can do it yourself.
If you start it on a weekday, and find you find you need parts, a Ford spare parts department will be open.
The only problem I have had since the conversion is a vibration in the driveline somewhere when below 45kmph when downchanging gears.
