Been a while since I've posted but would like to share photos/progress with our first manual swap.
I am currently working with my fiance on his mx73 manual swap. We are actually looking for a 5mge flywheel at the moment. Worse case scenario, buying it on eBay. I've called many auto wrecking companies but they have non available. Craigslist, none. Junk yards, none. Hoping that posting on forums will help. My goal is to be active on the forums so I can provide progress and updates.
A friend of mine provided me a 7mgte flywheel and he told me that he's done x7 manual swaps with it many times so I made an assumption that it would be possible. I bought a 7mgte clutch kit and all the necessary bolts/nuts. BIG ISSUE was that the throw out bearing sleave/collar for a w58 is too small for the 7mgte clutch. It came with a bearing but it was LARGER! It was meant for a R154 not a w58! We stopped it there, so now we are sticking with Plan B which was suppose to be PLAN A from the get go.
I will post updates/progress.
Thanks for looking!
