I won't be changing out the clutch on the beams and I'm just going to drop the engine and trans as one unit. Engine only has 55k miles so clutch should be okay.

That is a bad decision.
Don't go through swapping to find out the clutch is toast.
Just change it when it's 100% easier not in the car.

I'd just go ahead and do the clutch while everything is easy to get to as well, especially since once it's all quick and stuff you'll never stop driving it. redface.gif

I know it's probably a good idea to swap the clutch but money is super tight for me.

So a lot happened today. No more 5s and auto. Next thing to do is clean the engine bay replace various the various hoses and what not while I have access to them. Then replace my control arm bushings and sway bar. Then after that the beams will go in. It's been a long day getting it out but my brother with my help were able to get it out using smaays guide.

Soon.....
Yesterday I cleaned my engine bay up some. Need to do another go around and then it should be good. I had to work but my brother kept on and he got my control arms with poly bushings in and my upgraded sway bar and end links. This Saturday will be installing the clutch pedal and other manual things

My car now has three pedals and a shifter! Wiring is next which is worrying me but I think I'll get through it. After that the beams will go in.

wiring is not a big deal. you literally have to run one one short wire between two fuse boxes near the pedals. I might be able to find my marked up wiring diagram

If you could that would be most helpful!

Got some minor stuff done today. New Beams cluster is in, manual rear engine mount is in, clutch lines run. Most of the wiring is sorted out as well so hopefully next Saturday the engine can go in.

Beams engine is in. Still need to figure out how to get the car to start since it was an auto and now a manual. Need to make a customer bracket for the fuel filter. Need to also figure out why my clutch won't bleed and get the return spring for it.
