If you look on ebay you can find several sellers with manual Escort transmissions, and their price plus the shipping cost would be as much as you would need to pay to get a used (& sort-of-tested) 5 speed. Even the places selling the automatic transmissions (mostly all auto dismantlers) might have a 5 speed, if you sent them a question about it. With luck there would be one close enough to you that you could pick it up & save the shipping cost. I got a transmission last spring for my Hyundai from a place about 750 mles away, the shipping cost was $60.
I took the engine and 5 speed out of my 94 Escort together, as the engine needed work & the clutch needed replacement. I have no idea what it would cost to have that done, but it was a pretty straight-forward chore. The service manual said the 5 speed had to be removed together with the engine - but folks on this and other Escort forums have done it by lowering one side of the subframe and sliding the transmission out, then down.

At my loacl U-pull-it junkyard, they are $100 for used ones. Sometimes I see them on Craigslist of in the for sale section here cheap too. It goes up from there. If you catually took it to a transmission shop and asked them to rebuild it, expect to pay something like $2300 if it were an ATX. Manual transmission, I have no idea, but you get the point.
