Hey guys. I found a 1985 running and driving diesel for sale locally. They claim it's a 5 speed, but I'm not sure anything other than a 4 speed was offered, the best I remember. I've been keeping my out for a car with a manual transmission, because I want to do a manual swap on my 90. Doing 4000 RPM at highway speed isn't enjoyable in my 3 speed auto. I've been hoping to find a crashed car for the swap, because I would hate to scrap one of these cats. I know the diesel transmissions will work fine, and they have a medium gearing when compared to the other gearboxes offered. Not bad ratios, even for a gasoline engine. They want $750 for it, but I'm thinking I can talk down to $400 or $500. This has me thinking. I've done all the research I can stand to do, but I can't seem to find what it takes to swap the engine from the 1.9 TBI to the 2.0 Mazda diesel. As far as motor mounts, does anyone know how different they are? Is the frame structure completely different? Transmission is a direct bolt-in for gasoline motors, so I don't imagine it would be terribly difficult, even if I had to break out the welder and make the mounts myself. I ask, because I love my diesels, especially in smaller cars. I loved driving my first gen diesel Rabbit and TDI Passat. I'm going to be doing more research now. If I find more info that relates to the stuff I've answered above, I'll make another post. P.S. --- Unexplodedcow used to post frequently, and his advice on old posts has helped me several times. Is he still active? Thanks all.
