Re: AUTO TO STICK

Heya,

You are really looking for problems, eh? It might be cheaper, easier, and faster to sell your little beastie, and getting one with stick. Or better yet, don't sell the old one, and get a second one!

Laters!

Re: AUTO TO STICK

I think some of it's going to require some careful fabrication... Like finding a way to rig a clutch linkage into your truck, selecting a clutch that'll work, and finding a tranny that will hold up to what you want to do with it (oh yes, and you'll need to either get an adapter or the T-case that goes with the manual tranny... Not sure about the computer, or the steering column... You could probably keep your steering column, but it might look kind of dumb with an auto tranny shifter on it and a stick on the floor... [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] That's about the only reason I could think of to swap the steering column... You also have to decide whether you want a hydraulic linkage or solid linkage.. Hydraulic works pretty good if kept away from heat sources, but if the lines get near your exhausts, it'll heat it up and won't work quite as well... Also with hydraulics you have to worry about the slave cylinder and master cylinder having enough pressure to keep it working right... Also has to be bled before it'll work properly ( I assume and I assume it's not going to bleed very well, you just need to use a vacuum) I haven't done a clutch before, didn't know how and had a tranny place do it... I don't think I'll go that route again... [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] Much cheaper to do it myself, and considering I'd like to swap a better tranny in, I'll probably have to... But I digress [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img] [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

*the part below this line has been edited*
I realized I forgot to ask why you wanted to go from an auto to a stick... As a result now I have to ask: Why do you want to go from an auto to a stick? [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img][img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

Re: AUTO TO STICK

WITH MY AUTOMATIC MY TRUCK IS CONSTANTLY SHIFTING INTO OD AND PASSING, AT AROUND 110KMS OR 60 MPH FOR YOU GUYS.I NOTICE THIS GOING TO WORK AND BACK( ITS ABOUT 50 MILES). I HAVE ALREADY CANGED FLUID AND FILTER TWICE IN THE PAST YEAR AND A HALF. BECAUSE I THOUGHT THIS WOULD BE THE PROBLEM (I WAS NOT THE ORIGIONAL OWNER AND I DIDI NOT KNOW IF THE GUY TOOK GOOD CARE OF IT.)
