Just bought my 84' CJ7 Automatic. It has the Inline 6 258. I kind of settled since I really wanted a manual but was having a hard time find one that was in decent shape. So now I plan on swapping out the auto for a manual. I really have no experience in doing this, so I'm looking for some help. Has anyone on here attempted this? I saw some other threads for the newer models but not for the CJ.
Obviously, I'd like a clean and simple install as possible but I know there will be some obstacles to overcome. A few questions:
What kind of manual will be the best match for my set-up?
Where should I look for a rebuilt/re-manufactured transmission?
Are there any other things to consider when tackling a project like this?
Would anyone like to volunteer to do this for me?
