Re: Starting my t5 swap thread

I swapped mine a couple of years ago. It was great for the Thunderbird. I also installed an aluminum driveshaft (cut down and balanced Crown Vic cop car piece). Sweetness.

Re: Starting my t5 swap thread

Double check that you have the list of parts ready to go. Pilot bearing,the two replacement bolts at the top of the bell housing (the other aod bolts will swap,clutch cable,quadrant,and depending on the tranny (if it's used), swap the rear seal now and be done, block plate, The AOD tranny mount will swap over,lower shift boot (you need that), tranny fluid, and then sell the AOD and TV cable to get some funds back.

It took my friend and I about two hours to swap the trannys out. The AOD removal took more time than installing the T-5. It weighs nothing compared to the AOD.LOL.

That's a very good idea.
New bolts are very inexpensive compared to the damage that could be caused by old ones failng. I had an old 73' Maverick that was converted to a manual trans and they had used cheap grade 2 bolts to secure the pressure plate. When they broke it pretty much scrapped the clutch assembly, flywheel and bellhousing. Thankfully nothing came through the floor boards.

It's a pretty good bet that it will benefit your 1/4 mile times.
Less weight and less power loss than the auto almost guarantees it.
PLUS, they are a blast to drive!

What about the crossmember?
I think (If I remember correctly.) that you can cut the welds loose and reposition it as needed then reweld.
Probably a good idea to change out the fluid too.
Pedal pads in good shape?
I had a clutch pedal with a missing pad smack me in the shinbone once when sidestepping the clutch. Made me almost wet the seat from the pain.

You should be good to go. I can't think of anything you might have left out.

Re: Starting my t5 swap thread

The top two bell housing bolts for the 5 speed are a different length than the top two from the AOD.

Re: Starting my t5 swap thread

IIRC, they were too short. It's been three years, and my memory kind of faded there. I do remember having to run to the parts store for a couple to finish up.

Older cars never had them and for the most part they were not needed.
It's one of those safety things that were implemented to protect people from making stupid mistakes, as we all do from time to time. As long as you can remain constantly aware that the car you are about to start has a manual transmission and follow safe starting practices you will be good to go. Always setting the parking brake should protect you as long as it is in good working condition.

I'm not 100% sure on yours, but I always made a jumper wire with ends on it that plugged into the switch plug of the switch on the clutch pedal arm.
If yours is on the transmission you could do the same and just tape it up good to keep out water. That way if you wanted to put it back you could.

The wires on the transmission are likely to be for your back up lights too.

For future reference:

You can install a clutch disk without an alignment tool if you don't have one handy. Just lightly tighten the pressure plate bolts until the clutch is held into position, but you can still move it with your hands. Then feel all the way around the pressure plate for the clutch and move it until it is roughly the same distance from the edge all the way around. Tighten the pressure plate and you should have it pretty well centered. It's worked for me dozens of times.

To easily remove a pilot bearing, find a punch or cut the threads off of a suitable sized bolt with a long shoulder with a diameter close to the inside diameter of the pilot bearing. Fill the cavity behind the pilot bearing and out to the edge of the pilot bearing with grease. Insert the punch or bolt and give it a few whacks with a large hammer. The pilot bearing should pop right out from the hydraulic force generated.
Might not be a bad idea to hold a rag around the punch or bolt to keep from getting splattered too. If your bolt or punch is too small you can wrap a rag or some tape around it for a better seal.

Yes it is I forgot you were doing a swap.
Let me see if I can find some wiring diagrams so we can be sure to get the right wires.

the grease route was what I did..my prob was finding a punch to fit..i ended up jamin lots of grease soaked paper towel pieces in there so it did the same job just cut down on the grease blowing by..
And I could've gotten away with not using the alignment tool but I already had it and its just that much easier!...well for me atleast!..

The picture I posted shows red wires in the dash to the left of the steering column (see the enlarged view to the right of the pic). Just doublecheck to be sure you have the correct wires.
Or you can jumper the wires at the sensor on the transmission I suppose.
