Transmission swap

Asked by Jul 24, 2011 at 09:49 AM about the 1992 Ford Mustang LX Coupe

Question type: Car Customization

I have an 89 mustang with a 5 speed
manual tranny and also have a 92 mustang
coupe with a bad AOD auto tranny.
Wondered if this would be a fairly easy bolt
up swap putting the manual in place of the
auto?

Wouldn't be very difficult. I'm not sure, you might have to cut the firewall if they didn't do it preemptively at manufacture. otherwise its just a matter of swapping flywheels/clutch and mounting the clutch pedal and cable.

ya doing the clutch pedal thing is a PTA, but you might also have to change the length of your drive shaft.

nothing easy about this job.it has the hydrolic clutch which you will have to deal with.

Mustangs don't have hydraulic clutches.

Why you would even post about a hydraulic clutch is beyond me. You claim you know these cars. This is a post that should be stickied. I hope he can get the plantery gears jupiter and uranus rings aligned to install that hydraulic clutch.. you know?

HAY,what is your problem,all straight drive vehicles have a hydro clutch.the clutch rod operated trannys went away years ago.you need to do some homework or at least learn about things you post.and stop downing other plps opinions.I have seen your kind before,think you know all about vehicle mechanics how they work.you my friend seem like the trouble maker here.after researching you,you stay out of my post,Ill stay out of yours,GOD help the plps questions you answer,we will get along just fine.

The fox has a cable driven clutch, as does every manual mustang produced through 2004. He could buy a conversion kit from LRS if he wanted a hydraulic clutch. Hell, look at the under hood pic of my mustang it has an aftermarket Steeda clutch cable adjuster on it. So now, who thinks they know all about vehicle mechanics?
