I've got a 89 4x4 man. thats wrecked ,and a 91 4x2 auto with a bad auto. So I'm going to change the cab and motor. I'm trying to decide between changing the brackets for the clutch or buying one from jegs. I've got a z24 auto, but I don't know if its anygood( bought the truck at the junk yard).
I finally got to drive mine to work after several weeks of work on the swap and I'd have to say that its worth it. The gearing is sweet going from an auto to manual. You get low gears in the tranny and axles, best of both worlds. With crawler gears, and 5.14 axle gears, you end up with a 81.82:1 crawl ratio, which isnt too bad.
I am still running the auto ECU and everything seems to work OK except for the cruise control, which I need to trace out.. might have missed something there. I still have a few loose ends to tie up, but for the most part it complete.
