Auto trans to manual

Got a lead on a nice 87 with auto trans. Thinking of switching it over to manual. I have everything from my wrecked 83 manual I could use. Is there any difference from the 83 tranny mounting it to the 87 engine as they both are 2.5.? What’s involved in switching it over from auto to manual that I might be looking over. Thanks

83 trans has different mounting points to the later transmissions so you will need to do some modification to make it fit an 87 chassis. Also the speedometer on the 83 is mechanically driven from a front wheel whereas on the 87 there is no way to do this. Later trans used an electrical signal from the trans to drive the speedometer and the 83 trans doesn’t have that facility.

You would of course have to change the pedals, installing a clutch pedal. I have heard that is a bit of a pain.
