Phase I, part two: The rest of the transmission

The next portion of the 5-speed conversion  involves buying and installing pedals, master cylinder, slave cyl, hard lines, clutch, pressure plate, throw-out bearing and fork.

Luckily I found all of these parts in the junkyard, except for the slave cyl which I bought on ebay for $20.   This covers the mechanical aspect of the conversion.  I still need to account for the neutral safety switch and the speedometer sensor, and I’m hoping they will be compatible with my car.   I’ll update with more info and pictures.  Here’s a sneak peak of what’s to come:  porting and polishing my 2.5l SOHC heads.
