I have a 91 escort with an automatic. I have had to replace the tranny and TC 3 times already. and want to switch to a standard shift. I have a 94 wagon to scrap the parts out of. Both are 1.9l cars. Will the manual tranny fit in the 91 car? And is there any other things to watch for when installing it?

there pretty much the same exsact car same engine just different tranny if I were you tho Instead of putting in the clutch from the wagon I would replace it with a new one....you dont have to if the clutch works ok and all just if your gonna do all that work Why not save yourself some time and replace the clutch while your at it. Other than that it should be just a matter of clicking and dragging parts off of car A to car B and taking car B's parts and if there in decent shape selling em if not throwing them to the dog to chew on. 8)

woah woah woah...alrighat...start some research, i did and found a couple of things, if i remember on a first gen you have to mount the clutch fluid, and also you have to put the clutch, and the linkage. it seems easy enough, and i have a few people who would help me, and it would be a weekend thing for us to do it. But as anything you need to do all the research to figure it out what youll need. i know its possible, and i know youll need some time. sorry i cant help anymore. but sittinlo actually has a slight idea, seeing is how alot is plug and play, with the swap. well good luck to you, keep us updated with this.

the crank does have the provision for the piolet shaft bearing. I noticed it during one of the auto tranny swaps.
And i do plan on putting in a new clutch, pressure plate and throw out bearing. It is pointless to do the work with out doing it at the same time. I am also pullin the engine to do a bit of work on it as well. Nothin mager, just timing belt, and a couple of seals. As well as clean and paint some of it.
Thanks for the replies.

pilot bearings....lemme just put my 2 sense in right away.... After just completing my engine swap....lemme tell u this...

the engine i used was from an automatic...i had a manual. DO NOT FORGET TO REMOVE THE SPACER FROM THE CRANK SHAFT PRIOR TO PUTTING THE PILOT BEARING IN. or like me, u'll put it all back together and find that u cant turn the engine...not one second. then have to use a pneumatic pump w/ 4 tons of force to get the damn tranny off...
