Swapping out the AOD

Alright fellas, I'm starting my 5 speed swap. I already have everything I need(I think) to complete it.

Just got done pulling my aod about a half hour ago and it wasn't too bad.

Now, are there any tips or tricks I need to use when swapping in my t-5? I was told by a buddy I needed to swap in a harness from the donor car(the one with the 2 studs sticking out) because it has the neutral safety switch in it but from what I've read they all gave the neutral safety switch already in them.

Or is the 2 prong on the manual part of the neutral switch? If that's the case I can't save it....looks to have been laying on a h pipe :/

I don't know about the neutral saflety switch. But the harness for the reverse lights may need swapped.

Eh, I'm not too worried about reverse lights, if it comes down to it I'll have to find another car as I believe that's the wire that's toasted :/

Now can anyone tell me exactly what these are for?

Flywheel, clutch, pressure plate, throw out bearing, pilot bearing, trans, crossmember(read you can modify the auto xmember to work), 5 speed pedal assembly, clutch cable and possibly wiring for the neutral safety switch or you can do what I might do and that's to bypass it.

I think you can reuse your radiator but may need to block off the trans lines on it.

I heard some guys fill it up through the shifter whole. I always fill it first then tape a bag around the tailshaft very good. I only loose a little bit, and I have done it quiylte a few times.

Just FYI, they make plastic "plugs" just for that purpose. A whole set of different sizes is $10-$15

Well, me too until the "duck tape" I was using let go and dropped about a pint or two of fluid in my face. That stuff doesn't taste very good ya' know, so I had no desire for a repeat performance so to speak.

I actually just took the yoke off my other driveshaft and slid it on, worked like a charm but I didn't take into account the dipstick tube a d when I pulled it it gushed ATF all over the floor.

Oh well, guess that's why they make absorbent

Got a new trans mount, pilot bearing, alignment tool and some blue thread locker, gonna see if I can get some more done tonight unless the wife is grumpy :S

I usually just say "give me a minute" which turns into a half hour or more, that really gets her going

On another note, should I put a little grease around and behind the pilot bearing before I put it in?

Alright, pilot bearing in, flywheel on, clutch and pressure plate on, bellhousing with fork on, clutch cable ran.

Having a bit of trouble with the auto shifter, I have the 4 screws out. Won't come out.....do I need to remove the center console? Thought I read it could be taken out with it intact but the arm on the bottom of the shifter seems to be in the way...

You need to pull the console and trim a little metal away to make the fit better.

Well I mean getting the aod shifter out. I did read about trimming the doghouse. Just seems it doesn't want to come out. I'll take the console apart tomorrow if the wife allows it.....she looked pretty pissed when I came in tonight heh.

Re: Swapping out the AOD

Women are never happy. My wife was just the same as all of yours. Now that I'm damaged goods and unable to get out and do much she wishes I could.
So tell yours to be careful what she wishes for, cause you know someone who's wife wished the same and now that it came true, it's not quite what she had in mind.
