Ok so I re-read your writeup again, specifically looking at the cruise control issue. It might be just me but i came out of it with the impression that you will lose cruise if you do this swap. Did you get it to work? I plan on doing this swap next summer, but I don't think I will if i will be losing cruise control because i have to commute everyday.

and about the cruise control, it only works in D4, D3 and 2, just ground the pink wire and it will always work, or connect it to the clutch switch, then switch to ground.

</TD></TR></TABLE>

I did ground the pink wire but the cruise still wouldnt work no matter what i did. I think because it was set to park that it tripped it off im not sure. The car is in Vegas now and im in LA so i couldnt check it further.

We LOST cruise control.


And for the rear mount the manual is a little slinder then the auto one.

He'll have my car back in 2 weeks if he wants to work on the cruise control some more ;-) The transmission I bought from another HT member has some serious issues and it needs to be replaced already. It leaks A LOT.

I bought 3 tubes of quick steel. I should show you the pics. My crank case is covered in it. That wont stop the leaks where the seals are however.

if there is a clutch safety switch, a physical switch, wouldnt it make sense to wire up the 'in park' wires to it? so it releases the key when you push in the clutch? then, if the cruise doesnt work because it thinks its in park, this would fix that too wouldnt it?

Ideally yes but at the same time theres a cruise control switch that needs to be wired up as well. again not a big deal but i didnt have plugs to do it for this car.

when i did this swap in my eg, i had to get an auto to manual tranny mount because the mount welded to the frame was off about an inch. now my girlfriend is wanting me to do it to her 99 civic. anyone know if i am going to run into the same problem?

No, just get a manual mount for her car and your set.

So what do you do with the inhibitor sensor that tells the car that the clutch pedal has been pushed in? Does it matter if you have the sensor or not?

I just did the conversion. I thought that overall it wasnt that hard, more time consuming. I had the pedals and master cylinder hooked up in a little over an hour.

I bought all the parts new at http://www.hondaautomotiveparts.com I think i spent maybe at most 300$ for everthing with the clutch pedal, brake pedal, mater cylider etc.

Any experience or knowledge about the sensor would be of a great help.

Thanks
Max

Sorry I am lazy and didn't read anyone's replys, but why is it easier with the motor out? I replaced my clutch (and took the whole tranny out to take a look at it) without the motor out, but I would have hated taking the motor out on top of that. It's easier once you've done it, but still not quite as easy (to me at least).

By they way, I like the way you took up almost one full page for just the topic alone.

Pulling the motor is personal perference. But to me its 100 times easier because you dont have a car in your way.

I do clutch jobs with the motor in the car, thats easy. But this is a complete auto to manual, you have to change brackets, mounts, and other little things. Its alot easier outside of the car.
