Re: Manual trans into auto xr

The one pictured above is the after T5 swap. The front part of the shafts are different, the back end of the shafts are all the same, even between Scorp/XR IIRC.

Re: Manual trans into auto xr

What I can't find are the lengths of the bolt for crank to flywheel, and the clutch to crank. I'm going form C3 to T5 with my swap. I can measure once I get the flex plate, off, but I would rather have the bolts in hand before I get the flex plate off so I can just start putting things together.

Re: 2.3L Fastener Torque Values <& Header bolt source>

How about a length for those bolts? Specifically the length of crank to flywheel, and the clutch to flywheel.

Re: Best way to remove cancer

I know any replacement is gonna be the wrong color. I may be able to get replacement doors from the same car I get the drivers fender from. Wont know till I go to get the fender. Drilling 54 spot welds sounds like a really good time :roll:

Best way to remove cancer

I finally have my MMI from the work comp doc(had back surgery to slice a bulging disc in Feb), and have started working on my XR again. The ultimate goal is getting her pretty again, and reliable enough to resume DD service. At least until I die, or the smog nazis ban ICEs completely :roll: While I ...

Re: Manual trans into auto xr

Thanks to Jacek, I now have a 4 cyl T-5 to stick into my XR. Just have to get a few more bits, some oil, and then swap er in and then dispose of the C-3. Have had my fun with the auto trannies, but it's time to go manual and never look back...

Re: Manual trans into auto xr

I found that again, and have looked thru it and the one on Merkur Encyclopedia. However I see no pics of what it look like when they're talking about reusing the stock 2 piece drive shaft.

Re: Manual trans into auto xr

I may actually have a speedo cable for a T9 that needs repair, I have to look thru my parts stash again. I have to check my extra driveshaft, but as I recall it is from a T9 equipped XR, so that should reduce cost, and headache balancing a one piece DS. I should be able to use the C3 trans mount wit...

Re: Manual trans into auto xr

Like I said, manual trans is next step at some point, however I'm leaning towards soonerer rather than laterer, simply because if the c3 has to come out, i dont really wanna put it back. I know a T9 will be quick dirty and easy, but also only good to 350hp unless I get really spendy on parts from th...

Manual trans into auto xr

I know its been done, and I'm reading thru forum posts now. Here's the skinny: My 86 xr has not passed smog since 2010. I took the car off the road in 2012 due to what I thought atnbthe time was a bad c3 trans. It turned out to be an exhaust that separated at a joint that made me think the trans was...
