A preist, a 3 footed aardvark, and a blender full of tacks and bleach to put your codsack in while you are working on your truck.

for next time someone asks about swappin in a 5spd. Parts list for going 4cylauto to 5spd: 1 5spd fly wheel, clutch, bearing hub, master/slave cyllender, hydraulic lines (don't go to a yard $7.00 w/o rust in 'em from toyota), pedal assembly, 2 about 1.5" 17mm bolts, 5spd t-case crossmember, 1 4" piece of wire w/ a spade connector on each end (you can put a switch on it if you feel like riggin some security in). the 5spd looks about 1" shorter than the auto my rear d/shaft still looks fine though, i haven't put the front one on yet cause i'm tired. like i said, it's an easy swap. If a highschool kid (an above average one) w/ hand tools can do it by himself so can you! :flipoff2:

Well, that was where I went wrong...

I used a four-footed aardvark that was three feet long while listening to Thelonious Monk instead of having the priest on hand...

It's always the little stuff that screws you up.
I mean, at least you had an aardvark on hand, just forgot to cut off a foot.

Yep, minor details will get you every time...

And the aardvark had a lot to say about the idea of losing a foot! :eek:

I used 3 friends, a tranny jack, several steaks, some ribs, a few cases of beer, some cussing, some 75-90W gear oil, anti-seize lubricant, and a pregnant midget on a waterbed.

The swap isn't worth it just to go 5-speed. May as well go duals at the same time--especially if you need to retube drivelines. It's super worthwhile if you're going duals and gears while going 5-speed. My Runner is like a brand new rig!!!!

So, does the pregnant midget replace the priest or the aardvark and how does that work for you with that replacement? Would you use a midget again or stick with priests and aardvarks? :D

May require a clutch pedal not many automatics came with them but I think I read somewhere you need one.

No, the pregnant midget actually requires a wiccan midwife with a one-eyed black cat named Azrail.

Same reason you can't use a birfield eliminator kit with a Longfield outer. :flipoff2;
