I tried doin mine on my 1j without pulling the motor and....... spent 3hrs getting no where so I spent the next 1.5 hrs pulling the motor then bolting it to the belhousing (after the ailment tool) then 2.5 to swap it back in. All in all. I wish I would of pulled the motor and trans in the first place would have been a hell of a lot easier and faster then messing around trying to do it with motor installed!

its in my garage, i dont have a cherry picker for the motor or even the knowledge to take the motor out.
i got it jacked up but the exhaust is in my way, and i cant unbolt it becuz its welded on there. any other way i can get it on without pulling the motor, and getting the front peice of the exhaust off? thankks

id say your easiest bet now is to remove the exhaust manifold and the piping at the next soonest point. cant remember how the exhaust routes on mk3's...its been too long since i had mine.

I agree with those guys. I had to drop my tranny a couple times to get my engine in and replace the flywheel and was a pain in the @$$! But if you dont have a cherry picker and dont want to learn how to remove your engine that's fine, better that way though.

Remove your exhaust, manifold to cat, so that it is not in the way of jacking up the tranny.
you will need to loosen the engine main bolts on the engine mounts to tilt the engine back so you can put the bolts on the tranny... mind you that it's a real pain in the @$$ since you will need 5-6 extensions and a 14mm long socket and feel and guess if the socket is on the bolt and tighten. Also you might scratch your flywheel a bit when jacking it up. you will need to jack up a bit then move forward and repeat til the bellhousing is on the back of the engine.

Like I said, it was a pain in the @$$! and that was with an extra set of hands.

got my tranny in, but i need to get some questions answered.. (NOTE THIS IS AN AUTO TO MANUAL TRANNY SWAP)
heres pics to help with my questions...
question 1 :
how do i know if my starter is on right?
idk how to put it back on basically...

question 2 :
where do i locate the neutral start switch?
and how do i bypass it?

question 3 :
the bolts on the left are my starter bolts, the one on the right is my bellhousing bolt, why is my bellhousing look so tiny? will this work?


question 4 :
my automagic trans mount i used for the manual trans, and this is the only i could have bolted it up,
is this okay?



question 5 :
what golden washers are these? i assume there for my driveshaft, u bearing joint thingy, but idk forsure.
these are the bolts with the golden washers on them


question 6 :where do i hook these lines up at? or do i even need them for my manual transmission?


oh and number 7 is how should the shifter be sitting inside my car, where the shifter goes its sticking out of the hole and im afraid that this is hold my engine tilted still.. i will post a pic in a bit on this question.

those are my questions, i really need them answered to the best of your abilities, thank you guys in advance...i appreciate all the help you guys gave me..
P.S my speedo cable. i was actually able to connect it which i thought was weird becuz i was told that it wouldnt work.

Ok here we go..... the speedo cable I have never had trouble hooking up and workin. All though they are technically different lengths.

They neutral switch some will recommends pulling the actual switch out and locking it in park. Myself I always Jus cut the switch wires ( don't quote me but I'm almost positive they are black with white and black with blue) I Jus cut and splice the two together so I don't have to hide that big switch. Never had any problems.

The starer really only goes in one way! Don't forget to hook up the little signal wore on top of starter.

The bolts you showed look to be proper length and size. The starer takes a lot of torque to turn the motor over.

and the gold washers I haven seen myself. but I would guess they are being used like you said on the driveline carrier bearing!

hope this helps!

Do you only have two of the golden washers?? They look like they go to the tranny-engine mounts but they could be the two bolts that hold up the drive shaft in the center.
