Here are the Details Jeff.
JR ruined his auto in his new to him 2001 TJ. One of our friends was parting out a 2005 TJ with the 6 speed manual.
So rather than spending $1400 on the auto he had lined up he bought the 6 speed, with the pedal assembly, slave cylinder, etc from the 2005.
We pulled the auto, swapped in the manual not a big deal, adjusted all the linkage for the x-fer case, built new tranny mount, modified tranny shifter. Shortened the rear drive line 2", the front was still okay. Installed the clutch assembly, then set- out to install the CPS but they were different from the 2001 auto to the 2005 manual. So we made a bracket but when we tried to fire the engine the nex day it was a no go!!!!!!
So crap, did a little more research and found AA made a retrofit to move the CPS from the flywheel to the Harmonic balancer, so great we ordered one $280. Well we moved the CPS extended the wires and tried to fire the Jeep, but still no fire. I did a little search on the internet and found a guy who had done the CPS modification and found that the AA directions were not correct on the wiring. We rewired the CPS and she fired right up.
So to sum it up 2 days of works and JR now has a 6 speed manual in his 2001TJ for $1200 rather than a rebuilt auto for $1400.
2001 TJ Built, Wrecked, then Built Bigger, then rolled and fixed again, now rolled again. Do you see a pattern!!
