So I ran into a snag, the tranny is seized so I have to pull the motor/tranny out and try to reassemble it correctly

Finally got the tranny apart and discovered that I have cracked 5th gear synchros. I also found out that the 1.9 and zetec 5th gear doesn't swap in but the zetec synchros do fit. Unfortunately I only have one good one. Now I have to order some :(

I don't think a cracked synchro ring should cause the tranny to lock up. However, installing the 5th gear synchronizer assembly backwards probably would and its an easy mistake to make if it comes out of the shift fork. Almost made this mistake swapping 5th gear on my dads ZX2, it came out and I had no idea which way it went back in, had to find a picture online to reference.

I have a complete 5th gear synchronizer assembly from an SPI/Zetec transmission if you could use parts from it.

The lock nut wont thread on the shaft with 5th gear clutch hub backwards. I replaced the synchros and it works fine now.

Thank you. I have verified that the circuit is energized in the "start" position but not in the key on engine off condition. The factory service manual says the circuit should energize when in the "run/on" position but it wouldn't be the first error I have found in the manual.

Typically on cars, the fuel pump only energizes for a few seconds in the key on engine off position, not the whole time.

Yup that's why I initially thought something was wrong. The bp fuel pump is energized during start up and when the key is in the "run" position AND the VAF switch is closed. Thanks for the diagram.

Yep, F-series and G-series transmissions have a different shift linkage.

1993 mazda BP. I need help figuring out why my ignition control module keeps failing. The original '93 ICM lasted over a month with no thermal paste. Swapped in a ICM from a '94 with no thermal paste and it lasted about 5-10min. Swapped in a new ICM from parts store, used thermal paste and it lasted about 20 minutes.tried 2 different coils, both are within spec range. What is going on?
